Move it or Lose it??

A while back you will remember I started the X-weighted challenge with my husband. Well times up! How did we do?

We both lost about 10lbs, which isn't bad, but we both gained a new appreciation for move it or your going to lose it. What are you going to lose?? Your body, your health.... your well being.

My dh ended up joining a gym that he works out at about three days a week during lunch. I'm back playing field hockey and this year I was able to run and not completely suck wind! (No seriously last year I thought I might die.)

Today I put back on my pedometer to see how many steps I'll take. I think I'll track it all week because today isn't a typical day. My kids are gone and I was able to go for an early a.m. walk and then I'm golfing 9 holes tonight at supper time. It will be interesting to see how many steps are taken. About 6 years ago the entire family wore these for an article/study for the Kitchener Waterloo Record. Was pretty cool. They claim that you need to take 10,000 steps a day to maintain your current weight. In order to drop you need to up your steps and squish your calories!

Oh yes calories. We'll tackle that subject (and I hate that subject... I do love my wine) another time!

Okay so who is with me? Going to see how many steps you take? You can get a simple pedometer at Shoppers Drug Mart, Winners, Walmart almost any where. Go get one. Most are under 20dollars and its well worth it to really track your steps. You might surprise yourself!

Let us know if your joining in!



  1. clipped on and ready to go!

  2. WTG!!! 10 lbs is big! I did the challenge, and lost 5. So 10 is big!!! Thanks for the reminder of the pedometer. I have one, somewhere... might be time to invest in a new one.

  3. WTG Jenn!!!!! I have a pedometer somewhere, I'll have to dig it out. I used to do over 10,000 steps a day when I was really walking. Now, well, not so much. But it is time to start building back up again -- every step helps :)

  4. I had a very great time reading your blog. I have learned a lot of things reading it. I am hoping for more interesting topic from your blog. I will be visiting your blog more often.
