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 :)

Whatever works right?


Have you ever tried the toothbrush diet?

No, No, No it's not where you eat your toothbrush - but I find it works well to brush my teeth to keep myself from snacking on or eating anything for a while...

I really like my fresh feeling in my mouth after brushing and like to conserve it...

I have been known to brush my teeth at work to stop myself from snacking & I will do it at bedtime (should anyways) to signify to myself that I am done snacking (even while my hubby may still be snacking on something like popcorn)...

There are no magic pills or ways to get and stay healthy - each of us are unique and we all have to find out what works for us each individually...

Update of sorts

I have been able to get back into walking at work & have been doing at least 3 miles a day & feel all the better for it!  :)

And with Jenna playing fall ball (softball) I have been walking outside during her practices... 3-5 miles on average, with only a few times that the weather hasn't been good enough to walk...  But it sure feels good to be moving more... :)

Tonight I even got a treat - another mom walked with me! It was great to have someone to talk with - the laps just flew by!

Hope to post more on here soon...

Part of Blogger is broken that allows me to total up my walking on the sidebar... Just know I am walking and will add to the totals there when I can & hope to top September's walking in October... (Sounds like a good goal huh?)

~ enjoy~
