Trippin

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Thanks for the comments after my blog on setting a destination I was going to "walk to" with the added mileage from my daily walks. It was suggested to find a location I want to visit and once I have achieved those miles in my walks, go and visit that place. Now why didn't I think of that? Now the hard part will be to set a realistic location to go Trippin" to once my mileage adds up. Too often I think we set goals so lofty they are hard to if not impossible to achieve. While Sparkin I want to be able to have the small successes to make the larger ones I at first deemed impossible (and thus easier to use as an excuse to quit), that much more obtainable. We all should set goals that are obtainable but nothing wrong with having the "dream" goal which just might be obtainable in the distant future. I am enthused by the encouragement given by family, friends,Spark participants and the good endorphins we all get from participating in the Spark Challenge we have set for ourselves.

    Love the travelling duck! Ducks rock!
    On destinations, here are a few to consider: Washington DC (not too far but a totally new place with lots to do); if you wanted to take a shorter walk to get "warmed up" you could consider Deep Creek Maryland or Pittsburgh.

    Thanks for the positive comments on my page. Today was actually a rough day. Stress = craving. I did ok though.

    Love you,
    Hol
