Goal Trackers

Sooooooooooo CLOSE!

Well, I did not make my walking goal for September. As you can see, I missed the 100 mile mark by 2.2 miles. I am not upset though! I think for having just started a walking routine, I did pretty damn good with my daily walking. I had even forced myself on days that I just wanted to crawl into bed and hide from world. In one month's time I have managed to work up to a 6 mile walk, so that's pretty good. I don't do 6 miles each and every time, because let's face it, I just don't have 2 hours every day :) But it's nice to know I can do that on the weekends!

Anyhoo, my main goal was to get my arse out there and exercise as close to a daily routine as possible, and I have. And I feel good about that.

My next step is to join Curves *yes, KozyKitty, you will be seeing me at Curves soon* I know that I need to add weight training to my weekly exercise routine in order to really boost my metabolism. It's funny, I usually do enjoy lifting weights when I have joined other gyms, so I don't really foresee that as a problem.

So, I will be stopping by Curves on the way home today. *hangs a big sign on her forehead so she doesn't forget* and my October goal is go to Curves three times a week and to walk the other 4 days of the week. I've boosted my walk goal up to 200 miles now. *good God no, not 200 miles in a month! Just another 100 added on each month to see what I really do walk in a years time*

I haven't lost as much weight as I had hoped with all the added daily exercise, but I think that's mainly due to the fact that I my body is going through a little bit of shock with the calorie cut back, the daily walking and the no smoking. But I'm OK with this. Every doctor or nutritionist says the slower you lose the better, so here's hoping the docs are right on that one :)

Hey--since you are walking--do you want to do the Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday Oct. 21? It's 4 miles. Curves Columbia has a team.

Let me know!

Nice work! I think you've done wonderful work considering most people don't make it much past setting the goals they want to achieve. Have fun at Curves with Kozy Kitty -- watch out! She's competitive with the coconuts ... or so I've heard...
