This is a "quicky" blog as life is incredibly busy.
I'm still working on that 1,000 mile goal and haven't swayed. As of 2 nights ago, I have officially logged 700 miles for this year.
How's about them apples!
(Don't have time to hunt up a picture of a bunch of apples...just imagine that I have it here!)
For those who happen along and see this...The bigger question might be if I'm still maintaining my over 120 lb. loss...
Definitely! (That's me on the left...got my hair cut sassy and short as it's easier on all these cancer events and runs and such! Besides...I think it's cute... (sassy grin)
I could use peri-menopause difficulties, busy family life with 3 children, busy church schedule, family difficulties with the in-laws and out-laws, flat tires, sickness in the family, financial overload when everything breaks down at once and has to be replaced...etc...but NOPE.
This is about lifestyle not "diet" and it's about choices...daily choices.
I've committed to making the daily choices that promotes a healthy weight.
It's about persistence...not perfection.
That's how I'm looking at this 1,000 miles. I'm hanging in there like a "hair in a biscuit"!

I normally don't "do" the New Year's Resolution thingy very good. I'm more the type to be making resolutions/goals all the time! But this year, I decided to doing something big after my "rest" year from major walk training...I decided to go for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day (60 mile) for the Cure in 2012 AND I made this ridiculously crazy goal of walking 1,000 miles in 2012!
Maybe not so ridiculous to you folks who walk all the time and have the time for such things. Easy in fact for you who work at a job that requires walking. But for a "stay at home Mom" (hysterical laughing) who teaches 3 children during the day and has to divide the rest of my time up between Husband, Home, Laundry, Church, Cardio Kickboxing, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Shopping, etc... Well...you get the picture.
In my heavy training year for 2010's 3-Day event, I only logged about 650 miles. So going for 1,000 is crazy.
(Hysterically laughing again) So Crazy!
I'm tackling this like I tackled the getting rid of 120 lbs. One step...one mile at a time. I know that if I raise the funds that I won't be walking much at all in November as the last time I did the 60, I damaged both legs in the process and couldn't pull miles for about 5 weeks while I healed. So I know I have to be ahead of the game a bit.
Crazy and OCD in one woman...you'd think my poor husband would have pulled in the reins a bit but NO. He and the children are so excited about my goal and they are encouraging me.
Now I have no way out!
