I registered for the American Lung Associations Trek Across Maine. It is a 180 mile cycling trek in 3 days. I had to raise $500.00 and asked a friend to do it with me. I was committed to it and needed to train for it. It has kept me burning between 3000 and 6000 calories per week.
The event is in 12 days and after that I will find a running event to sign up for. It works. I have lost 46 lbs.

An event on the calendar helps keeps eyes on the prize. Pick an event in the future that is a challenge, but doable. Find a training plan and sign up for the event. The money typically goes to a good cause and because you have skin ($$) in the game, you are more likely to complete your mission.
When you are done, celebrate, then find the next event to shoot for. 363
Read this today on Yahoo, & had to share. One of the most frustrating aspects of doing laundry is the number of socks that suspiciously go missing. Forget putting out an APB: Simply pin each pair together before throwing it in the machine. No sorting, no matching necessary afterward.
