Just Keep Walking, Just Keep Walking

I have joined my sister-in-law in The Challenge to walk 100 miles by the end of the year. Care to join me on this challenge? I have been walking 3 miles on the days that I don't have Jazzercise and attempting a 5 mile trek on the weekends. So far I am up to 14 miles- only 86 to go!! This is where I think of Dory whispering in my ear- "just keep walking, just keep walking!" Actually, I turn to one of my favorite quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson for inspiration: "What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us." I use this time to reflect on my journey and what lies within. What is your inspiration?

You are so much better than me! My inspiration and my only thought process while I am walking ... I don't want a fat ass!

Don't think I can do it, but I'll try. Love Ya!!!!!

Mom, you can do it. You only have to do one mile at a time! You would be amazed how good you'd feel after your body got used to it.

mom said...

Wow! This is such an awesome challenge! I SHOULD do this but not sure that I will. OHE-HUNDRED miles!??! Whoa. That seems like an eternity. Ha! Do you have a pedometer or how do you track your mileage?

Ok, as I told Amy my pedometer, better known as " LIE-O-METER" says I have 32.37 miles. I think it is cheating for me!!! It also says I have lost over 10 pounds (wouldn't that be wonderful). Anyway I think it's up for a replacement, as it is not reliable. What do you have to spend to get a dependable pedometer that tells the truth? This one cost me $13.00. I'm willing to go PRO if necessary. Love Ya
