Fall is here!

Well, the walk'n is over.

I have kept a walking diary for every day since summer started. I was pretty sad to put in that last entry.

So, here's a summary:

Week 1: 60,981 steps and 23.06 miles
Week 2: 61,178 steps and 23.14 miles
Week 3: 67,480 steps and 25.42 miles
Week 4: 69,768 steps and 26.36 miles
Week 5: 73,520 steps and 30.90 miles
Week 6: 81,432 steps and 35.82 miles
Week 7: 63,266 steps and 27.86 miles
Week 8: 72,561 steps and 28.54 miles
Week 9: 81,916 steps and 32.08 miles
Week 10: 69622 steps and 26.32 miles
Week 11: 69312 steps and 26.19 miles
Week 12: 76234 steps and 28.82 miles

Total: 908,174 steps and 361.46 miles!

One of our fun days was the fair. We clocked 17,350 steps and 7.66 miles!

We won't discuss the calories burned vs. calories consumed.

Anywhoodle, thanks to all of you we raised $395.00

Add in the $80.00 I would have spent in fees for the MS walk and we get a total of


I can't get the screen shot to load of my payment record to MS. However the tracking code for the donation is: 1638-13181-1-2920223-2936704. Also, because this effort was done in honor of a good blogger friend she will be getting a note about the donation.

I will continue to try to load the screen shot so you know I made the contribution to MS.

Newt's walk'n

Steps: 61012
Miles: 26.95

The fair starts Thursday and we will be heading there hopefully soon. I can't wait to see what sort of miles we put on then.

Grant you it will never come close to covering the calorie consumption. But hey, any bit helps.

Newt's Walking

I have to do some catch up here with everyone:

I owe you for a few weeks:

On Monday, August 4 my walking for the previous week was:

Steps: 63,266
Miles: 27.86

And for last week, my golfing outing week:

Steps: 81,342
Miles: 35.82

I do have to admit that golfing is most excellent exercise. As long as you don't take the little cart everywhere :-)

Update to the past 4 days....

32,163 steps

I think the steps look much more impressive.

Have a wonderful weekend!

It's Hump Day

I have managed to do 23,700 steps so far this week. I'm not sure how many I will have during the day today as I trained legs on Monday and I am hurting!

Have a happy rest of the week.

The Big Loser is here

I have been horrible at keeping up to date on my progress. I am happy to say that I have been doing approximately 5 miles a day with the gym being my biggest help. The training has me walking and running which helps put on the miles.

Thanks to everyone that's still supporting Newt and I on this quest to raise some money for a very good cause. I'm starting to hear advertisements for the State Fair which sadly means that summer is coming to an end sooner than we would like. But I'm going to enjoy every single minute of what I can!

Newt's Miles

Well, the mall trip didn't turn out to be the walking extravaganza we had planned. I got out of a meeting when we were supposed to be meeting there. And then of course traffic sucked to get across town. So, my fault. It ended up being a short night.

However we did find some fabulous shoes (of course) - the DSW in Mall of America is remodeling so they had an additional 30% off clearance prices. Can't beat that!

Anywhoodle, here's the miles for the week:

73,520 steps
30.9 Miles
