I am hoping to fit into the dress later this year. As for the 32 days. That is my 50th birthday. I would like to be to my 211 goal, or below that number. I have gone down two more sizes, but the scale is barely budging. My legs are getting smaller and smaller. I wish everything else would do that too. The sun is coming out, so I will do more walking. I will hopefully get my energy back with the change in light. If not, I am going to Texas for my birthday, maybe the light there will do me some good.

Well we do track through Texas. Is Texas the goal for 32 days?

'Cause I've been of little help of late. Guess that's because I don't have a dress to fit into. Or a dress for that matter.

I am blazing a trail all the way to Texas. Thirty-two days left to meet my first goal, which is within reach. I am debating on my second goal. I don't want to set the bar too high or too low. I really would like to fit into my dress by fall.

Don't remember winter of '79 for snow here in GA. We are on the edge of the freeze line, north or south, we'll see. They're asking people to stay home tomorrow. Problem is this is only covering a portion of the north metro Atlanta area. Snow is unlikely, sleet and freezing rain.

Morning run will be questionable, playing it by ear-- and weather report.

I love the south! They did that when I lived in Virginia in the 70"s. They cancelled school with 1 inch of snow, but they weren't exactly prepared for snow anyway. I didn't mind : ) Do you remember the blizzard of 79? I can still remember that storm. Wishing we had a snow day tomorrow. I could get caught up then!

Teens probably do sound warm when you're facing negative temperatures. We had some sleet and snow today, first of the year. People were leaving work early, schools closed at half day. No accumulation near me.

Teens sound warm and yet so cold. Stay warm. Let's just say I have a bit of a flat tire for the week. It is the end of the quarter, so I will only get walking in for the next few days. After that I am good to go for another 45 days.

Tomorrow is rest day. I have to be out early so I worked the schedule. Supposed to be in the teens here. Coldest day of the year so far. Normally I out running at 5:15 to 5:30 am, tomorrow would have to have been 4:30am. I 'm trying to avoid the pre 5am runs for now.

I am not looking forward to it, but I do plan on taking the day off. I can't take narcotics, so I will probably need to keep things quiet. Glad to hear you are running. It is nice to have warm weather to do that. I know we will be back in the 20's soon. I plan on getting outside then.

I am just checking in today. We made it to Winchester, Connecticut. I walked 3 miles, and cycled 10 today. My speed is picking up with the cycling. It will be interesting to see how many miles I get in my 50-60 minutes in a week or two. I am thankful this is a virtual race. The weather would never have cooperated,

I am just checking in with everyone. It isn't too late to sign up for My Virtual Mission, again not necessary, but if you would like our team is set up. I walked 3 miles at work, and rode my recumbent bike 10 miles. So far, I have cycled and walked over 40 miles. I have been doing pretty good with my nutrition too. I am having more of an emotional struggle with trying to balance what I must do with what I want to do. The year is young and filled with opportunities and possibilities. Go the distance- you never know what you can do unless you try to do it!

It is great to have you on this journey. My daughters joined in too. Tonight, I and my youngest daughter went to the YMCA and had a great workout. I will be recording pretty much everything. I even record housework when I can. It all adds up.

Just Believe!

I'm signed up for the journey. What will be be tracking, exercise activity only or all activity. I typically only count my exercise, but I do monitor my steps also.

Ponder the path of thy feet
And
Let all thy ways
Be established. Proverbs 4.26

We are finally here! In 26 minutes we begin our virtual race. There aren't many rules. The goal is to race across America from Boston to San Diego. You can select how you go. I will be walking, swimming, and cycling. My goal is to get 10 miles in at least four days (mostly from cycling). You can check in as often as you like, but at least 1 x each week would be great. For you pet owners out there, feel free to include them on your journey and in your comments. Tonight I decided Edison and the kitties need to come on the journey. My cats won't walk with me so they are going via virtual back pack. I hope you realize, I threw that in for some humor. I do walk my dog each day, so I will post his miles too. He is only doing a mile or two until it warms up! Enjoy the race, and remember this race is about you. It isn't about being the first to cross the finish line, but rather about "Going the DIstance"!

Just Believe!
