Let’s try March 1st as a start date! @jlw. @merpreb. @lioness. @starko. @estrada53 @1065408 Does that work for everyone? @starko has graciously invited us to walk on the beach in Hawaii and listen to the waves! Heavenly. Remember, please, keep to your on pace! Don’t try to overdo. If you can comfortably do 5 minutes, that’s good. If 30 minutes, that’s good, too. The whole idea is to just get up and walk!

The achilles tendons in both my feet take turns giving me much pain. Is it a good idea to do much walking when this is happening? (Have rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis.)

@becsbuddy That is good for me, but I may start a bit earlier if you don't mind. I see so many bulbs coming up, and I want to watch them bloom out! I have scads of daffodils [I think] coming up in front yard, and some little African violets have poked their heads up, too! The deer have returned after a short absence, and just yesterday I saw the first turkey buzzard of the year. A sure sign of spring!

Great idea, Becky! My self-challenge for 2020 is to walk 3xs/week. I chose Tues, Thur, Sat and set no distance or speed goals but started with 15 min. Main objective was to honor my commitment and see if I could do it rain or shine.

Last yr my challenge was to see if I could go a year without purchasing a single new wearable. Despite an unexpected 30lb wt loss and wearing out 2 belts, I achieved the goal. That discipline did wonders for my self-esteem so chose to tackle a "routine", another tricky challenge for us creative types.

No record for sure but nearly 2 mos into the yr, I've made it to the mall or large box stores during inclement weather for my walks. Specifying the days helps keep me accountable. Important for me to keep the goal achievable and would like to participate with 3 days each week. How will this group stay in touch???

First time I've seen this, I'm in if it's not too late.
