100 miles

I hit the 100 milestone yesterday and totally forgot to blog about it! I did it, in 37 days and I feel so good. I know it isn't much of an accomplishment, but I felt inspired by someone and in doing so I have inspired a few other people to do it as well. I hope they feel  as impowered on when they reach that goal as I do! It truely does give you something great to work for. Now as for my next goal.....are you ready?'s a big one.... 1000 miles by October first 2012. That is 2.75 miles per day for 365 days! I know I won't possibly be able to walk everyday, but I am going to fight like crazy to reach this goal. I took today off cuz I deserved it, but tomorrow it is on! I will blog every so often for those of you who want to check on my progress and if anyone wants to join me, then hop on the train and lets go!!!

Just a thought

It makes me very sad to see how many people in this comp are not blogging. Have they given up? On life? It is very heartbreaking to see. You all need to know that you are worth it! 
On a lighter note, there are only 4 days left in this comp and I have only 12 miles to go. I am right on track. Although I did not win any money at all in the competition, I learned so much. I love my family and I know now that my husband ifs worth being healthy, my kids are worth being healthy, and I am worth being healthy. It is just walking afterall, but every step I take is a step closer to a longer, healthier life!

Taking a chance!

 So with just 10 days left in this months comp and 30 miles to go on my 100 mile goal I decided I wanted to finish strong and celebrate my 100 mile trek on the last day of the competition. I have moved my walk goal up by 8 days and I know I can do it! Today I did 5 miles and burned almost 700 calories, while reading the book "The Help"! That leaves me with 27 miles. I have to walk 3 miles a day for the last 9 days to hit my goal! I plan on winning some money this month!

Just keep walking

 So I started my 100 mile trek 18 days ago and have walked 50 miles. I am halfway to reaching my goal of 100 miles and I still have 28 days left tell my anniversary. It feels really good to be active and to see the numbers going both up and down. I know it seems silly, but to me if feels like I am accomplishing something great. I just hope that when I am through with this, I can set a higher goal and just keep walking. My 33rd birthday is 37 days from my anniversary. How many miles should I plan to walk before then?

Feeling impowered

So when this comp started I was really motivated and I lost a few pounds the first month. Then I lost 1 pound the second. By the third month I had lost my mojo and put back on the pounds I had lost the last two month. I had a doctor appointment where I was told that my cholesterol was too high and I needed to get it lower in the next six months our be put on meds. This scares the hell out of me. The number one leading killing in women my age is heart disease and with my numbers being as high as they are, I am no exception. So I found a new motivation. Lower my cholesterol. I had about 50 days until my 12 year Anniversary. Why not make a goal set for that date. Walking is one of the things he said I could do to help so the 100 miles goal was set in my mind. And guess what, I lost 3 pounds this month. And that was starting in the middle of the month. So I am going to continue on my journey and by the next weight in, I should almost be at my 100 mile goal and hopefully down twice as many pounds!

100 mile walk

 My anniversary is on October the 8th. I am setting a goal to walk/run 100 miles by October 8th. I have 45 days to meet my goal. That is an average or 2.25 miles a day. It is just a start but I would like to see if setting a number goal will motivate me to work out. Now to start out with mile 1.
