Okay, so-so week, followed by a crappy week, but softball season is over and I survived my first week of 10 hour days, so today I get back at it. This was my planned week to start walking the mountain 5 days a week so I'm ready to go and excited! I also have gotten some more "summer-friendly" workout clothes and a backpack for water (camelback?) so the heat shouldn't be too much of a problem. emoticon

Last week was crazy. I walked on Monday, but not my full route. Missed Wednesday because of a migraine and NOTHING was going to get in the way of my walking on Friday. It still wasn't my total route, but still. Better than nothing. I'm raring to go today, though. emoticon

Yesterday was a hard day for me. I was tired from the week-end and it was an emotionally stressful day and I spent all day trying to talk myself out of walking last night. But I knew if I missed it then the precedent for the week would have been set and I really needed the time to decompress from the day. I only got 2 miles in but I consider it more of a moral victory.

I've also started a fun little challenge with my cousin. We live 480 miles apart. I'm a walker and she's a runner, so we started yesterday and we're going to see how long it takes for us to virtually meet up. Not sure what the reward will be. I think I'm going to see if our reward can be an actual trip to "meet in the middle". Sounded like a fun way to keep track of what we're doing.

15 Miles down and 85 to go! It's going really well. Tomorrow will be three more miles. Tonight? Watching my granddaughters play softball. emoticon

Your goal is measurable. That's good you will be able to track how well you are doing. Go for it. emoticon

I'm going to have to scrap my plan to walk the Master the Mountain. I've now set a goal to walk 100 miles between now and the 4th of July. That's 3 miles a day, 3 days a week for 12 weeks. It actually comes out to 108 but I thought I'd give myself a little wiggle room.

I've been working about 2 and a half weeks now to eat better, exercise and get healthy. I've made huge progress on my first goal which is to walk two miles three days a week. I managed two and a half miles yesterday. But really, I want to just be consistent. I'd like to have 6 weeks in a row where I've exercised at least three times a week. So I'm almost halfway there. I guess now I'm in the spot where I'd like to get some accountability from someone other than myself or my husband.

Thanks!!
