Getting Ready For Thanksgiving

I have a short week at work this week (My normal half day on Wed, then Thurs and Fri off), and I find I am halfway disappointed about that. While I am excited for the time off, I am already thinking, "OK, so what can I be doing to keep walking while I'm not at work?" I am looking at squeezing some exercise time into our schedule already (and excited about actually wanting to make the effort).

So, the husband and I will have to plan some long long walks with our dog (who will be… Continue

Up to 1.5 mph and about 9-10 miles per day

I've been walking every work day except for a travel day and two days last week and it's part of my routine now. On the downtime last week, my manager asked me to check with my cubemates, so I sent out an email survey and had a surprisingly positive reaction from almost everyone. There was one person, however, who was having a hard time with the sound of the tread. Everyone was great about it and the person offered to move, but it seemed more appropriate for me to move to a more isolated cube… Continue

Sad News Regarding Our Pregnancy

My husband and I learned Friday that we had lost the baby we were so excited about bringing into the world. It has been a really trying weekend/week, but we can definitely feel the love, support, and prayers of our many friends and family members; and that has been a huge blessing in the midst of it. So, while taking time to grieve together and getting back into the swing of things at work after a few days away, my goals on the treadmill have been recalibrated and we are back at square one.… Continue

5th day... up to about 4 miles today...

So, got my tread-desk gussied up, temporarily, of course, with duck tape (yes, Oregon ducks, so duck tape, not duct!) and its' working well. Thus far, my cat-who-must-sit-on-lap hasn't figured it out, though she was checking out the top of my computer today! (There is only 1" on the "top", being an iMac, not wide enough for her.)

Been adjusting shoes I wear, too, to save the knees, too. Thus far, the MBTS are pretty good for cushioning, since the treadmill isn't very soft at all.… Continue

Fourth Day 6.32 Miles

I spent quite a bit of time away from my desk yesterday, but still made 6.32 miles at 1mph.

Today was meeting day, so I'm only at 1.9 now and likely to make 4 or 5 miles by the end of day. It's getting more comfortable every day though. I'm glad I slowed down to enjoy it instead of pushing.

I'm not doing this entirely for weightloss, but it will be interesting to track along with the miles, so I'll weigh myself Saturday morning and see where I am.

Third Day, slowing down a bit.

I had an easy time walking yesterday, but recovery last night was a little rough. I felt great again this morning, but decided to back off to 1.0mph and a goal of 8 miles for the day. So far, that's going great with about 2.5 miles and 2.5 hours to go in my day.

Office Walking: Progress so far - Second Day

I made 4.66 miles Friday starting at .5 and working up to 1.0 mph. Started today at 1.0 and then 1.5 now at 2.0 and typing comfortably. 6.2 miles so far. I'm going to go for 2.0 mph for eight hours tomorrow. That's 16 miles and from what I read 2000 calories? That can't be right. This is way too easy to burn that many calories, but then I haven't done the 16 miles yet. I may not think it's so easy tomorrow.

Looks like I'll make eight miles in eight hours today (with the usual… Continue
