One Grandma's walk across the country

I enjoy living and intend to do so for a long time. I enjoy spending time with my family and enjoy doing things with them. I want to continue to be active with my children and grandchildren. I don't want to be the old fat granny who can't do things because I don't feel well enough.

I want to fit in seats, theater and airplane and I want to be able to run up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial one more time at least.

I have walked across the nation twice that I have recorded and intend to do it again this year.

I love the selection of quotes you have on your page.
What initially caught my eye was the one I had used the day I put nicotine out of my life: Nothing changes until something changes. That was 15 years ago.

I rely mostly on walking as well and with ideal weather, have increased my outings to around 8 miles. I'll measure it the next opportunity I have.

I also joined Spark in '07 and had achieved my goal weight in 2014, finally.
I kept steady through rehab from a stroke and slowly put 10 on months later. Right now my desire is simple.. Just back off that 150 range by New Year. It really makes a difference in lightening up my ...spirit, too.

I live within an hour of the Lincoln Memorial. I'll have to test my stamina in the spring and see what I can do with those steps.

emoticon Sure enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather when I was down shopping this weekend. Probably my last trip down for awhile. Hope you are doing well.
