I am well into my new fitness program and couldn't be happier. I have had a fitbit now for just over a year and it has made a world of difference. I originally set a goal for 10 floors a day and am now up to 25 a day. I was at 5 miles a day and now I am up to 7 miles a day! Each year for the last couple of years, I have gone on a virtual walk. The first trip I took was from my home in Michigan to my brother's home in Georgia. It was a total of 722 miles. This year I got my co-workers involved. Each of them picked a place in the continental United States. The winner was drawn out of a plastic bag and ended up being Dallas, Texas. From my house, that is a total of 1185 miles. What will make this trip especially fun is that my co-workers have put a map on our office wall so they can track my progress! That should keep me motivated! Dallas, here I come!

I started my day with the mindset that I needed to set a goal and hit it. So I decided to start with floors climbed and set a goal of 50 floors. I hit that with no problem and decided to try for 75. Without looking at my Fitbit, I set out to get my badge for 75 floors in a day. Well, I just finished my stairs for the day and finished the day with 102 floors! It didn't feel like I went that far but I guess listening to my Ipod distracted me just enough that I pushed myself without realizing it. Just have a little bit more to go with my daily steps before I call it a day. I'd have to say, this is my best day.....so far!

Well, my one night off turned into a day and a half but I made up for it today! It was really cold outside so I couldn't go for an outdoor walk. Instead I broke out my Wii Fit and played my Walk It Out game. I was having so much fun that before I knew it, I had gone over 8 miles! It was so much fun and was a great workout! I'm going to use this to my advantage until I get my treadmill fixed. Rest time is over for me, now it's time to kick it into gear and make this virtual walk to Las Vegas. Nevada, here I come!
