4/24 2 more miles before dinner

4/25 1 mile so far today

approximately 25 minutes each (I'm not feeling so good on this antibiotic for my infected tooth)

 

1,845 + 75 = 1,915

 

2 more miles after lunch, before dinner - no more because my feet were starting to hurt

1,915 + 50 = 1,965


May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

4/26 3 miles ~ 25 minutes each + about 10 minutes swimming in our pool for the firs time (cold!) = 85

4/28 2 miles so far - both before lunch before it was 90 degrees ~ 25 minutes each = 50 + 75 = 135

 

1,965 + 125 = 2,100

Jaxy, unless you're paying somebody to do all the packing and moving and unloading, you'll probably get some exercise in there somewhere :)  My mother-in-law's friend lost 15 pound when he moved a few years ago.
