It just dawned on me today while I was taking a walk, that my 40th birthday is in 8 months from today. So I thought about what I would like to see happen in those 8 months before I turn 40. I would like to continue to add more strength training into my workouts. I want to continue to eat healthy and lose weight. But I also want to become a more active, loving person and give back to others. So I think I am going to start looking for charity walks in my area and particpate in them. Plus I read about the food pantry idea. For every pound you lose, put a can good in a basket and after you fill it up or get say 20 to 25 cans in it, you take it to the local food pantry to donate it. So I am going to start doing that. I bet I could help a lot of people this way. I think at times we get so wrap up in our own lives that we don't think about others who need a little joy and sunshine in their lives.
I would love to be close to 175 by the time my birthday rolls around. So here goes to a great 8 months of still being in my 30's. Looking forward to the journey.
