I did it! I walked 7 miles today! (not all at once, but still, that's awesome for me!) Tomorrow I have to do 7 more and *then* the walk-a-thon will be O-V-E-R. I almost bit off more than I could chew with this walk-a-thon, but all I lack is 7 miles and I have a day to do it. Since I did 7 today, I know I can do 7 tomorrow.
I feel empowered. Tired, but awesomely tired. LOL
I tried going to our town's gym today. Our town has probably less than 1,000 people, so our gym is kind of hoekie, but it was so hot that I was looking for an air conditioned treadmill. Well, wouldn't you know, it was FULL of itsy bitty supermodel girls who didn't even smile and to top it off, it wasn't air conditioned. I can walk in the heat for free......its called "outside". So, that was my one free visit and I obviously didn't join. Oh big fat well.
The above picture was taken on April 9, 2009 at a relative's house. It is going to make a great "before" picture for TOPS's greatest improvement contest next year. Check out that belly! And I'm holding cake. How appropriate.
I've done enough blabbing for tonight.........rest is calling me......I was walking at 6 am this morning.
Thanks for reading!
