 I took the kids to a park that is 1.4 miles away, then we walked to Chipotle and back home. Google maps said walking it is 3.7 miles but we took a little short cut through a parking lot (kind of surprised it said to walk a block out of the way lol) but still... that was a long way! OH AND I pushed a double stroller the whole time! I feel good :) We are hoping to go to Chipotle and back regularly, that alone is a little over a mile one way.

And I got new batteries for my scale so it now says I weight 7 lbs less than when the batteries were dying lol I know I didn't actually lose the 7 lbs but it's nice to know that I hadn't gained 9 like I thought! Just 2 lol

How are you doing these days with being active? Are you loving the scale or hating it?

That's great good for you. I haven't tried chipotle yet.  It sounds good.  I don't have a scale but I may get one so I can track my weight loss if I have any weight loss lol I did walk today again 1 mile

Way to go!  Last year my kids begged to go to a Dairy Queen over the summer and I said sure but we have to walk.  It was 2 miles one way.  I also had a cone once we got there cause it was hot the cone was refreshing LoL  It was quite the trip with three kids though.  My husband said never again!  I would do it again though.

I go to the gym regularly.  The scale isn't budging but I'm still going.  I also take my kids out often.  For walks, to the parks, playgrounds, etc.

I have a love hate relationship with my scale.  I walk about 10 miles a day.  I walk 4 in the morning, 4 on my lunch break and 2 at night after the kids are in bed.  I LOVE TO WALK.  I also do squats, situps and push ups as well.  But I love the way I feel after walking.  Heck if I really keep track of all the walking I did besides what I map out walking I am sure I put at least 13 to 14 miles in a day.

Good for you!

I've been trying to go to the gym regularly, but I haven't been today or yesterday because I haven't been feeling well.

 Never knew that old batteries could make the scale weigh wrong...I'm off to change the batteries.

 We have a Chipotle that recently opened in town, but I haven't tried it yet.

 Congratulations on the walking, and you get a reward by going to Chipotle. Good for you!
