First day of the rest of my life is going well...

Was met with a challenge right off the bat - a candy bowl in the lobby at work... But made a deal with myself - I could have one tiny piece of candy for each bottle of water - 24 oz I drank...  I have drank 3 so far!

Man oh man is the first day drinking more water "fun" - potty break after potty break... But my body will thank me later for helping it flush out the toxins that build up in our bodies...

More later...

Today is the first day of the rest of my life - last night I made the decision that I was going to do this again - maybe not go as low as I did back in 2004/2005 - but at least stop the insanity and get back onto making healthier choices for a lifetime...

Took measurements this morning for a baseline of where I am starting from...

And I am happy that I am still 39 lbs down from my highest so that is success in itself.

I just sent this collage to Walgreens to print & will have one at work, one at home and maybe one in the car as a reminder that I can do this...  As I have done it before - this time I will go into it with the knowledge that I need to be prepared for the maintenance part - as I didn't know it would be just as hard to keep the weight off as it was to lose it...

One day at a time...

I can do it...

Had lots of fun cleaning up along the road we drive everyday...  were met with a few thumbs up from the people driving by - which really encouraged Matthew :)

Good week walking - awarding myself one of the virtual medals :)

Monday - 2.04 miles at trekdesk
Tuesday - 5 miles at trekdesk
Wednesday - 4.5 miles at trekdesk 5.86 miles outside
Thursday - 5 miles at trekdesk
Friday - 5.65 miles at trekdesk

Totaling - 22.19 at work and 5.86 miles outside = 28.05 miles walked this week!

I think that qualifies for the you can fly challenge - as I have been challenging myself to get back into the habit of walking more at work & this was a great week for that!

Here's a screenshot of my walking history for the last 12 months...  Only 8 days into November - hoping to have November beat out October...  This includes my inside and outside walking :)

Each night when my friend Katie and I walk she mentions our pace and I keep reminding her that the pace is MUCH faster than just sitting in the bleachers or in the car while our girls practice softball... 

Whatever you do - make it count - add a bit more each day and you will feel better in your mind, body and spirit...

5k outside - earning another virtual medal

It was a cold, off again, on again day of rain. I saw a break in the rain, with just enough time to be done before dark - and I took advantage of it!

Got in another 5k walking outside and felt great!  :)

Quarter Marathon virtual event

I have been walking during Jenna's ball practices and today we started earlier and I pushed my pace a bit and got in a 1/4 marathon that allowed me to earn one of the medals that has been patiently waiting my work to earn the right to put it in my medal case!  :)

Felt so good to walk this far tonight...

5K virtual event with Matthew

Time to get back into earning my virtual medals (I have a pile of them waiting for me)... This was last Saturday with Matthew :)
