I've never been an overweight person and looking into the mirror I could see where I was headed if I didn't make some changes and get serious with it. Nothing was changing with my body and the weight was sloooowly creeping up on me.
Today Michael and I are very committed to hiking mostly every day of the week. We're averaging a minimum of four miles per day and on some days we do more. We're hiking between three and six or sometimes seven days each week. Last week we hiked a total of 22 miles. I got a free app for my phone which breaks down the mileage, etc. for us. This morning we hiked 6.17 miles which breaks down to 15,212 steps completed in 2:27:18 minutes. I only use the app on the days that we travel a new route so I can know how far it is for future reference.
