A Renewal of Sorts

Friday, June 14, 2013

Well, Sparkfriends, I finally took the step I kept putting off (for a year). Went and signed on for the Griffin Hospital 5K Cancer Walk this October. Now that I've actually paid to enter and have started emailing my family and friends about it, it's ON!! I believe this new agreement with myself will help get me off the weight plateau, and the motivation of helping to raise money in the fight against cancer (which, sadly, claimed both of my parents) will keep my energy up to see this project through to completion. The best part is, I know if I start falling off again, all I need to do is wander around the SparkPeople site and all your great stories and tips re-energizes me! Thank you all!!

    You can do this! I am working on my second 5K Walk which will be in August. There is a 5K Team on here with a schedule to follow. It is great.

    That is wonderful!! Letting people know that you are doing this is really important for follow through.

I've been training to do a 5K for awhile now. Now I just need to find one to actually walk, instead of just doing virtual ones.

    Good for you. Signing up and telling people about it is key! Now you just need to get out there and start walking so you are ready for it!
