Walking motivation...taking a break. :)

Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Hi Gail, thanks for reading my blog and all your support!
Yes the tool of colored dot stickers I have used before with success so figured I'd get them out again. It helps to have a beautiful wall calendar to look at in the meantime..
We walked into Leiden today to go to the textile festival but it is next weekend! Anyway we did go to the hortus botonicus and then walked around the canals after a healthy lunch. Got in my steps in a fun way. I saw the famous black tulip at the hortus but was kind of disappointed, it's more of a very dark red-brown color, not really black. But still it was beautiful there with the flower market as well.
Hope you are having a great Saturday! emoticon emoticon

What's YOUR weight loss motivation??

I want to be healthy.
I want to look good.
I want to fit in.
I want to be able to walk, run, or bike.
I want to get off medications.
I want to be able to get up and down easily.
I want to sleep better.
I want to feel good about myself.

Whatever it is, never lose your focus!

When I went to the site to log my miles the was an email address to contact the creator of the walk. They said for information to contact him. I emailed to tell him of my disappointment & asked if there would be something else to replace it. Haven't heard back. I was so close to finishing it!
Hope you have a great weekend!

God is awesome in how He can turn around our world so quickly. We were in such bad drought here, it is so good to see the water. I just loved the lightening storm yesterday-just watching from inside.

Hope all is going well there. Take care.
