Operation America 2011

Monday, January 24, 2011

I needed a little pick-me-up after recent events, and I got to thinking about how far I need to go to reach my goal weight. As I thought about the journey, I imagined it as a literal trip. I thought it might be fun to physically represent this metaphorical journey, so ...

I'm going to walk/wog across America! (And maybe parts of Canada, if it works out.) I plan to begin next week when I'm (hopefully) not sick anymore. This week, I want to see who's with me, and plan where we're going. Anyone fancy a visit? Let me know so I can include you on our route! Want to join me? You can walk/wog/jog/run/march/row/ell
iptical the distance, or do four times the distance on your bike/skates/skis. I'm going to break the miles down by destination and week, and we're going to wander across America, gaining friends and memories, and losing pounds!

I've set up a Spark team (It's on my page.) I can't wait to see who joins me, and where we'll go. I feel myself getting really excited and leaving my unfortunate January behind. Yippee!!

    Hi Cat!

Wow! What a cool way to think about your journey! Okay, I've signed up. But I have to warn you that other than logging miles, I don't know how much I'll be adding to the group. Sounds like fun, though!

Again, sorry about your disappointing start to the year. I'm so impressed that you are choosing to make something positive!
