Day One of the 4-week stair challenge. My luck to have a 15-step staircase. Was definitely feeling it by the 4th run up, but managed all 5 plus the 2 walking.

Thankfully the dogs are too exhausted to get up from the couch; usually they're right at my heels going up or down the stairs. Will have to always do this challenge shortly after our morning walk, otherwise only a good bone will keep their attention...

LONG walk today. Climbed about 6 very steep inclines too (no poop this time!), and again wore the wrist weights. No way to truly determine the approx. amt of energy that took, but it's sure more than what the pedometer shows.

aerobic steps: 9963
aerobic miles: 5.18 -- first time over 5
aerobic minutes: 88
avg pace: 3.62 -- another first

Went back through the trails near the high school...what a wonderful maze through the woods, winding in every which direction, surrounded by lovely trees & foliage. Love how the trail occasionally exits the woods & winds through fields of tall flowers and grass, only to lead back into the woods...still can't believe I never knew this was here!

Again forgot to weigh myself this morning...maybe a good thing. I've always heard that weighing every day can work against you. Don't know, never tracked my weight before.

On to other things. Gonna be a scorcher today, best be productive before it hits.

Good day, got a lot of exercise in. Filled up on healthy stuff before going over to the party. Managed to pass on the burgers n hot dogs n all but the carrot cake was screaming my name. So that was my one decadence for the week. But so darn unhealthy,geez!

What will the scale show?

Walked the dogs again, and gave them a good 5+ minute fast run through the park, too...hope that helps offset the darn cake!

Running through the park...would not have been able to do that last year.
