The bike miles are surely speeding up my trek to Minneapolis. I only have 32.31 to go. I could almost say that I could make it there by the 4th of July, but that is tomorrow, and I my butt would be too sore - not worth it!

oh my - was good thing to come in and read that last post -

I had a great week last week through Saturday. I volunteered at our church picnic on Sunday serving sno cones in the heat. I think I had a heat stroke or something - got one heck of a headache (I don't use the word "migraine"..but..) Spent Monday in bed all day and felt lousy Tuesday, but Wednesday went to the gym and got some walking on the treadmill. The weather has been unbearable, but at least I am feeling better.

It was bike to work week, and I haven't done that either - maybe tomorrow but it looks stormy and rainy which we had our share of last night.

I'll open a new message and start my June walking miles.

Crossing over....

WOW - I really feel like I've crossed over - exercising every day is soooo helping my mental attitude. I feel absolutely charged about this and wanted to share.

I used to be such a couch potato - although busy working and family duties kept me from being a really starchy vegetable - it was close. I never liked exercise much - I don't like to sweat and I don't like knee pain, etc.

Now, I crave some movement at the end of the day if I haven't gotten a walk in at lunch - or even if I have but it doesn't seem like enough. I am walking 1.5 miles minumum MOST days, and now I am riding my bike to work. Today was a bike riding day, and as I cruised along on my bike a really stinky car came by (like a gas smell), and I thought about my carbon footprint - whoa! THIS IS A NEW ME!!! I never had a thought like that as long as I've lived!

This is funny because for the last three weeks or so, I've been posting randomly on Facebook saying how long of a walk I got that day. A few old high school friends are commenting and admiring my efforts from a far. My very best friend from High School said something to the effect of she was going to have to start watching for me in her neighborhood.

She is in Minneapolis and I am in Madison Wisconsin - about 271 miles.

It will take me a while, but I am going to find a way to do this by the end of the year.

I commit to maping my progress here.
