Today I will weigh in. I’m nervous :(

I did get to walk some more yesterday. I need to switch things up and I need to find a way to track my miles without using my phone. There has to be a good pedometer or something on the market!

Rain rain, omg will you go away.

I need to invest in a treadmill or something because its been raining so much recently. I’ve barely been walking. :( Weight is still the same. Tomorrow the sun will be out for most of the day so walking is a must.

I’ve decided to lower my walking goal to 1000 in the next few months. Just for now then I may move it back up. Going for a walk in a few.

Goal missed :(

I have now reached 8.8 miles. So close to my 10 mile goal. Its been raining so much this weekend.

I walked 1.6 miles today which brings my grand total to 5.7! My goal was 2 but the heat was just slaying me. But luckily this weekend I will be hitting up a local fitness trail and I will be sure to hit my 12 mile goal by Sunday. I feel like I am slacking my goals. I thought by now I would be closer to 15. It does make me a little sad but oh well. Will do my best to hit my 12 mile goal this weekend!

Now onto other exercise, hands down one of my faves is:

I got an amazing custom made one for Christmas and I’ve been using it ever since. I think its one of the best work outs. Every one should give it a shot!

so new blog!

I’m so glad I could get a blog through 3fatchicks. I think this will also help me keep my motivation.

I was inspired to get into shape after a hiking trip with my daughter. I realized there was no way I could do our favorite trail because I had gained some extra weight. While we had an enjoyable time the missing trail stayed in the back of my head. I have a goal now. I want to walk to length of the Appalachian Trail on my weight loss journey. For anyone who doesn’t know that is 2,181 miles. I will be walking: fitness trails, trails at my local parks, down my country road (that goes up then down then sharp turn over a bridge, well you get the drift) and even some hiking on the Appalachian Trail. I have 4 visits there planed for the Summer.

So onto my walking: I started yesterday and only walked 2.3 miles when my goal was 5. Today’s goal was almost 3 miles. I only got 1.8 miles for a grand total of: 4.1 :( Not where I wanted to be but I didn’t factor in that it would suddenly be so hot. Virginia weather is terrible. So cold last week and now its hot. Crazy.

I am currently at 185 pounds and standing at 5′7. Its going to be a long journey but hopefully a good one.
