    Great keep it up, it is nice that you are able to walk with your dog, it doesn't feel like exercise that way

    You will feel guilty and end up taking her for a walk after you get off the treadmill lol, and I have two awesome son's, one is 27, the other is 22, both of them have flown the coop, already delt with the empty nest syndrome, it does get easier though, just really hard in the beginning, I love when they come visit or when I stop to see them, means so much more now that I don't see them everyday

    My dogs have an underground fence, so I would have to carry them across the line, and I don't have the muscles to do that. But they have plenty of space to run to get their own exercise

    I figure I probably will feel some guilt about not walking the dog. She will get my walking attention in the mornings I think. Two sons. How fun. You didn't have to deal with female hormones. Lol.

    It was raining like crazy today, so I only got in 10 minutes of walking. The dog and I were both soaked. :)

    We had a great day of weather, it was a little cool this morning though, I had Goosebumps on my arms while I walked that trail I walked a few weeks ago, I got 84 minutes of walking in today and over 12000 steps

    Sounds like Fall is in the air for you. What an awesome day of exercise for you! Way to go! How do you keep track of your steps? I have a Fitbit that I love.

    I sync my Fitbit to my phone and it tells me how many steps, how I sleep how many minutes of cardio, all sorts of things. And don't be saying that bad word (fall),, cause winter will soon follow lol, just a little break from the heat : )

    So you have a Fitbit too eh. Best things ever. I had one of the first Apple watches, but you had to have the phone with you all of the time. Kind of defeated the purpose. I could have just used the step program on the phone. The new watches work like the Fitbit and sync together when they get back together. Wouldn't mind having one of them, but the Fitbits are pretty good. I love Fall. I can't wait for a break from the heat. Don't blame you for not wanting Winter to come.

    For our anniversary, hubby took me on an overnight staycation to a little German town about 45 minutes away. It is a fun little place to walk around. It kept raining on and off, so we didn't get to walk as much as we would have wanted. Did more touristy shopping. Ended up walking for about an hour total outside. Forgot my Fitbit, so not sure how many steps I got in.
    :(.

    That sounds like a great day, when I use my Fitbit while shopping for hours I don't get credit for each step, probably because I walk slow and keep stopping to look at things and don't swing my arm, so it probably wouldn't have done you much good if you did wear it, I love when me and Gary do cool stuff, just the two of us, I am so happy for you, I'm not sure what we will be doingon our anniversary, we will be in Florida though, so I'm sure what ever we do will be extra special, my friend is coming over soon to exercise with me today so I will get 30 minutes on the recombent. I have an appointment coming up with nutritionist on the 18 of Aug so I will be getting on the dreaded scale, will give you an update on my weight loss, hopefully a loss lol,

    Getting my steps in wasn't a big concern, so I guess that is why I forgot the Fitbit. ;) It was just so nice to have the alone time. I hated getting back to life again. I'm sure you and Gary will do something nice for your anniversary. Maybe a dinner on the beach! You are so lucky to have a friend to exercise with. Since my treadmill didn't get here Friday, hopefully it will get here tomorrow. We have decided to keep it in our office. I can watch tv there or listen to my music. I'll probably listen to music the most. I'm sure you will do well on the scale. When were you on it last? I didn't lose last week.

    Ugh. Getting this treadmill has been a pain. Was supposed to be here Monday at the latest. UPS showed that it was still in transit. Finally showed that it was being delivered yesterday. Waited around for it so I could make sure it was put in a safe place until hubby and I could move it inside. It never showed up!!!! As of this morning it shows updated delivery date as today. It BETTER show up or UPS is reimbursing the outrageous shipping charges I had to pay. I really could have used it yesterday. It was beyond humid. Clear skies, yet 98% humidity according to the weather service. It felt like you were swimming when you walked outside. :( :(

    I worked from 830 am till 915 last night, so no exercise, and today I got pain shots in my back and neck, so no exercise again today, but I will be back at it tomorrow, I have 5 more days till vacation, so now the real countdown begins, I hope you get that treadmill today, and your hubby is able to get it put together, make sure he reads the directions first, my husband didn't so some didn't get put on until we needed to move it to another room so he had to take it apart and then he was able to put on the missing pieces, they were not that important mostly just for looks

    That's a long day! I hope the pain shots work. These will probably be a long 5 days while you wait on vacation to get here. The treadmill did get here finally. Unfortunately, they left it at our driveway rather than bringing it up the 8 stairs to our porch. Now we get to figure out how to get it up to the house. Hubby said he will try to put it together for me on Friday night.
