I have decided I am going to walk everyday for my exercise. I wonder if anyone on myLot would care to "join" me? I will report each day: 1. whether I walked or got too lazy. 2: how long I walked. 3. What time I walked. If you wnat to be a part of the group, you could do the same We could use this thread. I don't think this idea violates any guidelines, but if it does, let me know. I just thought it might help keep me motivated if I had to report to someone. Anyone care to join me? I promise I will respond to you and be a cheerleader or nagger...whichever you need or want. I hope you will do the same for me.

Count me in. I am in desperate need of encouragment and companionship when it comes to walking. Yes, I think there are times when we all need a combo cheerleader/nagger, lol. So, we are walking tomorrow...right???

Hi its me Toya. I went jogging today about 15 mins I'm the same as you I get bored easily exercising on my own + I need motivation BADLY!! so I'm going to try and keep reporting back to you all. But I do quite a lot of walking anyway so I'm going to do different exercise. Come on you can do it, it's great for the figure!! aswell and we're all in this together Write back and let us know how you got on - how about a walkman while you're walking it can help forget the time?

No fair! You found a way to make it fun! If I tried roller blading, I spend more time on my ... than my feet. You're doing great. Keep it up!

I dont do well in a "group-setting", think it is the amout of people that are involved.,he,he, so you have to walk by yourself. What will you do when not walking, crawl? Sorry that is abnoxious, Good Luck(cheerleader) I dont like "naggers", they bite.

LaLaLa! - I'll be watching!
Walking is the only exercise I really get. My wife is always asking me on Sundays to take a walk. Last weekend was rough. It was warm and everything melting. Not good for a walk. She got irritated. So I called her to the living room. As she neared me I grabbed her hand & we walked into the kitchen. I kissed her asking, "How was the walk today hun?" LOL. But I get enough walking with my dog daily etc. Thanks and I'll be checking up on your walking. Hee hee! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!

Hi It's Toya I did some home aerobics today as I was out all day and did a lot of walking I live in london a big city and use the tube/subway and transport a lot So I did some aerobics at home 15 mins and stretching and other exercises 10 mins About the exercise maybe only 2 or 3 times a week is ok to begin with you don't want to push it too much Some say it's better and you get fitter quicker. Have you tried yoga style exercising It's very good for body conditioning and relaxation there are some great beginner dvds.
