Walking fun

After a long week of training and testing in Ohio at the headquarters, we have a leisurely weekend off. We get to enjoy the crisp colors of Fall in gorgeous Ohio.
Today we combined our walking exercise with shopping at the outlets in Lodi. 
The outlets are at The Lodi Station. There is a working train that runs all around the place.
Later we concluded our walking at the rest stop near by.
We both logged over 3 miles today.

Tonight because of our truck being tested by our company we are staying at a hotel. 
So we took advantage of their fitness room.

We both walked on the treadmills at an ever increasing incline and speed. Pops went nuts on that thing. His fitness level is pretty great.
I messed a little with the incumbent bike too and we both tried the elipticals but we got our full workouts on the treadmills.

21 in 21

Once again Pops and I have committed to to 21/21 walking challenge on
The idea is to walk at least 1 mile a day for 21 days. The thought is that anything done for 21 days in a row becomes a habit.
This is the challenge that sparked Pops in the beginning. He then sparked me. At first I could only do 1/2 mile a day, some days only a quarter mile. Now I am averaging 2-2.5 every day.
Our personal goals is to walk at least 2 miles in each of the 48 continuous states.
We have done 34 so far.

Still at it

Pops and I are still dieting and walking. We are still losing, only about a pound per week. But steady, slow progress is still progress.

I have only missed walking 6 times since starting this diet. And tonight was my first pain free walk.
I am averaging 2.5 miles per day now, with my goal set for 2 a day. 
Hopefully tomorrow I will get to walk with our good friend from Missouri.
