Well, I just found this place and am glad that there's a comm for Pokéwalking but sad that it hasn't been updated for just about a year! How are you guys doing? Are you still using your Pokéwalkers?
I started using mine a ton right after I got HG, I was pretty much obsessed and definitely played with that much more than I played the game itself. Then I moved to a different country and didn't have room to bring my DS with me, but brought the 'walker and kept using it hahah... Now I have my DS again though, and just yesterday reset the game and the walker so that my friend could start playing it from the beginning. A bit sad to lose all my unlocked routes, but hey, new motivation to re-unlock them! I think so far it ended up at 8000 steps yesterday and today I haven't walked at all, but I guess I'll take a night walk or try to walk a lot tomorrow :-P
So did anyone lose a lot of weight through this? I know I lost a couple kilos from the walking over the last year, and right now I feel like I got fatter again, so I sure could use losing a few more now!
How about some discussion? I know exercise releases endorphins... Anyone who has been doing this consistently, do you feel like you're addicted to walking now? XD I don't know if this is addiction, but lately if I don't make it to 10,000, I feel lazy and gross. Nintendo has gotten into my head x_x
Anyway, school has started, meaning I can't take my morning walk everyday. Luckily, work has had me doing a special assignment the past two weeks that involves running about the building (instead of sitting at a cubicle). So here is my stepcount the past week:
Well, the rest of the week is making me feel a little better about my lazy day today, but I still feel fat XD Went over to mommymoose's house and had a Pokémon day with her and pkmn_breeder filled with pikachu-shaped pancakes, and am right now eating a burger. .___.;; looks like I have a lot of walking to do tomorrow.
My stepcount per day has definitely gone up since I started my acting class - when I had my archaeology class, I got 7000-9000 steps per weekday instead of the 8500+ I'm getting now. Still not consistently getting above 10k, though. I need to strat taking random walks, especially on weekends.
So like, today I did a total of 8162 steps today. I could've done up to 1400 steps but I got a headache and rested. xD So then after a walk, I started to lift some weights. Yeah! Anyways, I'm going to try my hardest and drop 2 pant sizes by the end of the summer! Wish me luck guys! :D
I went to Japan and walked around there, perhaps I will post some pictures later. I'm only just now getting back in the Pokewalker groove after bad jetlag & some knee problems, heh. Took a walk before my class at the YMCA today -- 10:30 AM and already I've got 11,432 steps. Doing good! :)
Still haven't weighed myself yet. Oh well. Maybe this coming weekend.
Stepcount record since last post: 11th - 13966 12th - 11165 13th - 1927 14th - 7092 15th - 4265 16th - 4641 17th - 8534 (so far) I've come to the realization that getting 10,000/day is going to be harder than I thought without four classes a day, three meals a day, and various student groups to get to...
I did finally succeed in catching a Ponyta after at least five days of trying! ^.^ Also got a Smoochum earlier today, so that was cool.
Today: currently at 7,071 steps, breakfast was a low-fat blueberry muffin and an orange juice, lunch was a bowl of clam chowder, a key lime tart, and milk. (Currently trying to get a Ponyta on Rugged Road) Yesterday: 14,100+ steps, (first day since activating my 'walker that I got over 10,000) don't remember everything I ate but I know I had a second dinner of chicken strips and french fries, so.... Once I get home tomorrow evening I can weigh myself - I've lost weight each school year so far, but gained back freshman year's loss over that summer, so hopefully I can stay even (or maybe even lose some) over summer. btw Is there any easy way to get some of the special release routes (i.e. Yellow Forest, etc.) at this point in time?
