Over 100 Days of Walking!

Friday, December 28, 2012

Through the weather, holidays and getting my wisdom teeth pulled I DID IT! Today marks 105 days of walking a mile straight despite all the insane life challenges.

23Dec12 - Day 100!: I celebrated by taking my dog, Cami, to the plaza with her festive Christmas collar. We walked around the entire perimeter of the plaza to get my mile in and I let people stop us to admire my cute, dressed up catahoula. Just as an early Christmas treat we stopped at a dog bakery for a special on the sidewalk celebration. The gentlemen behind the counter even gave Cami an extra treat for being such a sweet dog. She really is a gentle creature at heart. When I gave her the other treat a guy came buy and screamed out "Merry Christmas!" Good way to celebrate my achievement!

24Dec12 - Day 101!: A good friend of mine took a few hours away from her Christmas festivities to celebrate with me. She is in medical school right now and spending time with her inspires me to achieve in other areas of my life. We really complement each other well. I treasure the time we get together and it meant a great deal to me that she supported my walking habit, especially on Christmas Eve. I am blessed with good people in my life.

27Dec12 - Day 104!: On Wednesday my freakish wisdom teeth were removed and yesterday's walk was probably was the most difficult walk to date. It took me 22 minutes to make the full mile because my whole face throbbed. Luckily my brother was on hand to go the distance with me. He took me out for pasta later in the evening to be sweet. It's the first real meal I had in about a 36 hours or so.

28Dec12- Day 105!: I am sort of dreading going again today because I know it will hurt with all the movement. It's worth it in the end. The pain won't last forever. People stare though at my disfigured face all puffed out like a deranged chipmunk. No good.

Well I am off for a nap and a mini celebration in my head! Thanks SparkPeople and all my lovely Spark Friends!

    Congrats! You must be so proud of yourself... heck, I'm proud of you. I don't think I could keep up with it that consistently, so good for you!

    Wow that's impressive! I can't believe you went the same day as having wisdom teeth out. That's dedication.

    Well done on your walking! I'd love to see pix of your dog. You need to load more photos in your gallery!
Walking is a great low-impact exercise. But eventually you'll find that you need to change things up - walk farther, for instance, or faster; or add another cardio exercise, and some strengthening exercises. But you're definitely on the right track to a healthier lifestyle! May God bless you on the journey.
