I don't know what is wrong with me. If I am challenged to do something here than I have to do it.
The arthritis in my left foot has been bothering me since last Friday and yet I keep walking the 10,000 steps of the challenge.
It was starting to get a little better today and I was helping an older friend take down her Christmas decorations above her kitchen cabinets. I was walking across the countertops and I had forgotten that the counter dropped down about 6 inchs to form her desk and I stomped down on my left foot.
Now it is really bothering me enough to call my doctor who told me to double my medicine. and yet I continued to walk around and around the house until I was up to 10,054 steps.
At least we get one day off on the weekend.


More Steps

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

I'm proud of myself. I did10,000 steps two days in a row. I have been doing more steps than ever but I never was making sure to pass a certain number. I know that I won't be able to do this all the time but I think that after this week of challenge is over I will set a number of steps that I want to complete and see if I can work myway up to a higher number.
I just walked around and around outside of my house down past the next two neighbors until I had enough steps.

    Good for you! I'm not quite half done with my 10,000 steps for the day. Not sure if I'll have the energy to make it after I get home from work.

New Challenge

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

We are on the second day of the challenge and I am already enjoying it. I like the small teams because we are doing a lot of chatting to each other and learning about our teammates.
It is working out as a good team already and I am looking forward to success.


I Will Succeed

Tomorrow I will write down everything I eat. I am going to do this one day at a time for the rest of my life.

    One day at a time, One choice at a time, One step at a time - that's the way to do it! Somedays the journey seems long to me, so I start thinking 'just for today, I will......' and it works. It gets me through to the next day and the next and the next. Then when I feel stronger, I can look at the journey ahead. Yeah You!

I can't seem to get back into the habit of writing down my food. I know that I lose weight better if I write down. Am I trying to keep myself about 168. Does this number mean something to me. People are telling me that I look great and I think that this is what it is. I still have another 30 pounds to lose.
I will do it.

    Hi Peggy! Happy Sparks Day! Oh, can I relate to your tracking problem. When I was down in the glorious 160s, people started telling me I looked fine, too...but in my case, I let things slide for too long and here I am (!). So how would it be to just track the next meal? Commit to tracking one meal the first day, two the next, three the third...and snacks on the fourth! I started doing badly when I stopped tracking, so now I know I really need to do it.

BTW, it's F-F-REEZING here! (as in 18 degrees outside right now!) - Sara emoticon
