              morning
              4.12 mile walk

              afternoon
              Foundation Light, level 3, day 28
              ~I did level 3, which was 5 sets, because it was all stretches, and it felt so darn good!

              Walkabout: 12,600+ steps; 25 days done
              ~Because of my longish walk this morning, i hit my step goal before 130 this afternoon! I am going to keep my pedometer on and see what my final tally is tonight*. I am doing the Walkabout Challenge out of order, so i have already knocked out the bigger step counts as i wanted to get them out of the way before the summer heat really set in.

              3 Daily Dares from the archive; all with EC!
              30 Roll-Ups
              60
              Seconds Raised Arm Circles
              30 Cossack Squats

              *final step count = 15, 459

                What type of dog do you have?

                Someday i would like to take Belly Dance lessons, but, yes, right now my financial priorities are otherwise.
                Mamatigerj I have a 30# collie. The top of his back hits just barely below my knee. He's a great exercise companion! I've only had him about 7 months. He's my first ever ever dog (didn't grow up with them) and it's certainly been a learning curve. My last neighborhood was really nice to walk around. Residential, with lots of interesting houses and yards. This one is a little more urban and less interesting. And this pack of adorable and louuuuud french bulldogs that come at us from their yard... I need to remember what intersection they are at so that I only walk by or near there when I am purposefully looking to work on TuxeDog's reactivity training! Also: Woah! You're almost down with Foundation Light Level 1! How are you feeling, at the end of it? Mr LoverMan asked, today, if I was feeling any stronger. I don't know that I feel any stronger, yet. I do feel more confident though, and like I am starting to push myself more.

                  Caesg i am feeling pretty good!
                  I can feel some of my muscles ( hamstrings, glutes, biceps, deltoids) when i move, and i think i am actually starting to see some deltiod definition!
                  I plan to repeat F.L. in July on level 2. I have really enjoyed it.

                    morning
                    2.51 mile walk

                    Foundation Light, day 29, level 3 (120 flutter kicks, done in 5 sets ~instructions say, "complete throughouy the day." So, if i get 20 more done, it will bump me up to level 3.*)

                    I also did 3 level 1 mini-workouts between the sets of flutter kicks:

                    Cardio Balance
                    Gravity Hold
                    Gravity Hold II

                    afternoon
                    *20 more flutter kicks

                    DD ~just missed out on the EC; had a couple of toe touches to maintain my balance on one side.

                      Walkabout ~My pedometer broke!
                      Before that happened it had just under 7000 steps; i think. That was at 930 this morning, and it included my walk. I had a relivively sedentary day, but i spent the evening helping my daughter move from the third floor to the first floor two buildings away and cleaning.
                      The counts i have left are: 11,500, 12,000, and three 5,000. I am too tired to think about it tonight. I will figure it out in the morning.

                        Ooooh, slight soreness *and* definition? Exciting! I don't even know where all those muscles you list off are. I bet I'll figure it out if I stay on this DareBee path long enough, though. Yay!

                          morning
                          2.35 mile walk

                          Foundation Light, level 1, day 30 & day 8 (because i skipped it earlier, and i wanted all those boxes checked off) completed!!

                          Walkabout Challenge:
                          Yesterday's morning walk was 5534 steps, so i just marked off one of my 5000 step days.
                          Today's was 5347, which will take care of another 5000 step day unless i can get in another walk. I discovered that a local rec centre has an indoor walking track, and i hope to use it this weekend for a couple of long walks out of the heat to knock out the 11,500 & 12,000 step days.

                          evening
                          DD + EC

                                ~I am enjoying working out, and i look forward to it each day

                                ~There have been a couple of days in the past week where my reaction to stress/anxiety has been to want to work out rather than pig out! This is a big deal for me, and i hope it continues.

                                ~I like the way i feel, both physically & emotionally.

                                ~I love hanging out at the Hive with all you awesome Bees! It is truly an introvert's paradise for me, and you guys are the best!
