Do you do daily exercise?

I’m trying to do more walking. Just did my morning walk and done 3 miles. Going out again this afternoon and doing another 3 miles. Doing this every day to lose weight.

Walking is so underrated sometimes. Good for you to go out there.

Yes, I work during the day as a stocker, which is pretty physically demanding. But I also workout at least 3 times a week, and I do lifting and cardio.

Yes i walk for 2 hours every day!

Nice, man. I’m trying to walk several times per day. Easier now that it’s warmed up some.

It varies from day to day depending on the weather. Today I walked for an hour this morning and half an hour this afternoon.

If it’s pouring down I won’t go out. Whilst if it’s too hot I won’t either cause I only walk cause of the dog and sometimes it can be too hot for her in summer

Back when my daughter had a dog, I wound up being the one walking it. Challenging as heck when you have a dog allergy that requires an epi-pen. I wound up wearing a hydration pack for the longer walks that kept water cold. It was for the dog. I had a collapsible water dish I could keep in my pocket for the pupper. It needed a drink every so often on warmer days.

Dogs are a big responsibility for sure @MrSquirrel and some dogs are more prone to overheating than others. I also have one of those portable water things for her during the summer.

Well, it drove me crazy that she had to have it and then didn’t care for it properly. You can’t just not exercise an animal so it wound up being me that did that. It was also mostly Border Collie, which sure didn’t help. I’m never adopting another rescue dog for as long as I live. Rescue cats, sure, but never another dog from a rescue outfit.

Border collies are very energetic dogs. Also yeah a lot of dogs from rescues have behavioural problems. Cats on the other hand are much quieter creatures and more independent.

Yes, I exercise daily.

I track my steps and lift the occasional dumbbell but that’s about it.
I just don’t have the motivation.

It’s really an issue for me.

I’m mainly losing weight through diet.

That’s fantastic! I do not exercise everyday though I should. That pic you snapped of your watch makes me want to get up and get some exercise. I’m going to go for a walk. Thanks for the spontaneous inspiration.

Diet is the most important variable in losing weight, for sure.
