I started teh month out with a bang! Went to the cabin to mow and do other yard work, and ended up with 11,977 steps for the day - tht'a even with 2 hrs in the car each way - total 4 1/2 hrs sitting.
Hope to see lots of activities during the summer - some aerobic, some just plain fun!

WooHoo, Gma !
I embrace your plan for summer movement. I have not been able to establish any sort of routine of planned movement. Don't have the discipline for that by myself apparently. So I am with you... pay attention to my steps and leap into anything else that will work a muscle group! I've been hovering at 5000- 6000 steps. Will increase that to 8000 by July!

that is a great goal, edium! I will keep you to it!
I didn't put my fitbit on until after 1pm, so I have missed about 2000 steps of working in mother's yard. picking up sticks/ twigs, gathering leaves from over winter that hid themselves under bushes.
Now I have my own yard to mow - I think that will be about another 2000 steps. Then I will have to figure out how to get the remainder in to make 10k. that's my goal for the summer. with occasional forays to 15k, since I need to be in shape to do that come October.

Thanks for keeping this going, Gma.
Sounds like a good goal, edium.

Here's the results of last week's exercise plan.
xercise Plan for 5/28 - 6/2
X M. Jogged 4 miles flat
X T. - rested my back
X W. Jogged 3 miles flat; Yoga class @ 12
X Th. Jogged the hill x 1.5 for 3 miles
X F. REST DAY (or maybe gym for upper body work)
X Sa. Jog 6 - 6.5 miles flat -- ended up 4 miles flat for time's sake

Back Exercises: M, T, W, Th, F, Sa
Shoulder Exercises: 0 -- not good.

I'm on vacation for 2 weeks. My exercise plan: do a lot of walking. Jog if I can. I plan to jog tomorrow morning. I need to keep up with my back exercises; my back is more sore today after traveling with a heavy backpack + suitcase yesterday. I don't have a fitbit anymore, so I can't track my steps, unfortunately. I can try to track time.

Been MIA for awhile. Gym sessions have been going well. Fell of the elliptical wagon for awhile but now getting back into that. Feels good.

Today: power plate, weights, elliptical, treadmill, squats, push ups, plank. Hmm... I sound like an over achiever. :P :wink: :lol: The treadmill and elliptical are both only :15 - and the squats, plank & push ups don't take very long to do.

Hi Everyone,
Good to see you are still keeping it up:)
This time, I need to join and start from scratch. Time to rebuild. Right now, the only exercise I can do is walking.
Fitbit back in action:
Today: 3,400 steps. (I'll correct if I get some more in)

smiles, have a great trip! you will get lots of walking in.

I am >7k. I counted- 55 trips from mom's [porch to her LR, bringing "stuff" into the house so she can have carpet cleaned tomorrow. That was just teh "ornaments" hse has on top of end tables, shelving units, etc . My Mr VKM will help with the furniture - big porch - there are table, 4 chairs, 2 rockers, a small couch, 2 swings, and a couple swivel chairs. That makes about 10 more trips! I am patting myself on the back for patience with my mother and all her stuff!

Well... I see you are going strong, Gma...

Having Fitbit issues... No idea about yesterday's count but today, I was over 8,000 (!!!) steps. However, Fitbit decided to go back to 0.
