I am going for 20 videowalks to Leslie Sansone again. That seemed to work out just right for me in November. Thanks Joy!

I have struggled for the last 6 weeks or so. In particular in November. I reached none of my goals. I'm going to set one goal for myself for December. I really want to get back into the swing of things, get my eating back on track and my exercise and going to the gym. My new job is proving to be so difficult to work around. My only goal will be to finish my 800 miles in 2013 - 75 miles to go. Anything else I will do will be a bonus.

December:


1: Gym workout - 5.55 miles & 2 miles walking. (Total miles:7.55/75 miles)
2: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:10.05/75 miles)
3: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:12.55/75 miles) Tonight, after work I was going to go to the gym! Had so much motivation and planned it since Sunday but since then I've developed an awful cold and sore throat. Hope I'll start to feel better, I've plans during the week and weekend!
4: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:15.05/75 miles)
5: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:17.55/75 miles)
6: 3 miles walking. (Total miles:20.55/75 miles)
7: 3 miles walking. (Total miles:23.55/75 miles)
8: -



9: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:26.05/75 miles)
10: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:28.55/75 miles)
11: 3.5 miles walking. (Total miles:32.05/75 miles)
12 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:34.55/75 miles)
13: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:37.05/75 miles)
14: -
15: -



16: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:39.55/75 miles)
17: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:42.05/75 miles)
18: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:44.55/75 miles)
19: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:47.05/75 miles)
20: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:49.55/75 miles)
21: -
22: -



23: 2.5 miles walking. (Total miles:52.05/75 miles)
24: 3.5 miles walking. (Total miles:55.55/75 miles)
25 -
26: -
27: 4 miles walking. (Total miles:59.55/75 miles)
28: 4 miles walking. (Total miles:63.55/75 miles)
29: 3 miles walking. (Total miles:66.55/75 miles)



30: - Unless I do anything tomorrow, I will just fall short of my overall 800 miles in 2013 and my goal for December. Will this be enough motivation for me to get moving and do something tomorrow??
31 -



Nearly made it to my 800 miles, ready to finish in 2014!
