These are the feet....

These are the feet that are doing a LOT of walking this week, even when I don't feel like it.

This past weekend was our area fun day for TOPS. It was fun and inspiring as always. My husband and kids were there with me and they got to meet several of the people from my old chapter. If you remember the reason I left my old chapter, you can assume that the meeting of old friends would be nerve wrecking, and it was, but it all ended up ok. (And if you don't remember, there's no need to search my blog for the story, because I deleted it all. Just know that it was a sticky situation.)Everyone was nice and the 2 other chapters in my town asked if we would all like to get together for a Thanksgiving potluck or something of that nature, and I am considering hosting it. I don't know. We will see.

Awards were given for the April-June quarter and my husband won first place for hours exercised and miles walked. Yay hubby!

Friday is the end of our next reporting period, so our next fun day (Nov. 12th) we will receive awards from July-Sept. You have to walk at least 50 miles to receive a walking award and of course I wait until the last week to even halfway try. I plan to walk the 28 or so miles I have left between now and midnight Friday. I can also receive a weight loss award if I can lose 3 more pounds by Friday. (It is possible IF I work very hard and stay focused!)

Have you heard "Today is your day" by Shania Twain? My hubby told me to listen to it every morning. :) (For those of you who think we listen to country music all the time....NO....... He heard it at the gym and thought of me and came home and looked it up. My heart was touched that he thought of me when he heard it *I love that man*)I think you should listen to it every morning too. It has been running through my head all day and it has been a great pick-me-up when I feel tired and down.

So....that's what's up in my world. How are YOU doing?


  1. I would LOVE for you to join us :)

    Here is how to play :)

    Basically our challenge is to keep a record of our exercise during the week (Monday-Saturday). Then on Sunday we share how many minutes of exercise we did...and someone wins the week. We specified that exercise included anything you did at the gym, fitness classes,swimming, workout DVDs, and walking/running outside...we are also going to count fitness video games. So walking outside 30 mins counted but walking 30 mins while shopping didn't count. Swimming laps counts, but treading water while watching kids play in the pool didn't count...make sense?
    If you have any questions, just ask :)

  2. I'm doing great. Thanks for asking. :) I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. I love hearing from new people. Sometimes I think that I'm talking to myself. LOL! I'm new to your blog and was wondering- are you doing a specific wakling program or just walking?

  3. Hope you are getting in some great workouts this week :)

  4. Kari, I'm just walking. Although I do sometimes do the Leslie Sansone walk at home dvds too.
