I'm a stay-at-home mother of two. Despite the insanity of my life, I always find time to read...it is my outlet and my passion. I also love to cook and appreciate a good glass (or bottle) of wine. If you would like to contact me, my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Long time, no update, I know! I skipped my fitness update last week for one reason only...guilt. Yes, I know, it was Thanksgiving week so I have the built-in excuse. The kids were home with me, so no long walks...I turned to my elliptical trainer instead and logged in a pathetic 9 miles.
This week, the kids were back to school, so I reclaimed my personal space. Still, I only accumulated 10 miles, in a week where I needed to walk about 30 to work off all the food consumed on Thanksgiving. The good news? I got all my Christmas shopping finished!
Just to make myself feel better, I will tell you that I do not count all the miles I walked shopping at the mall, and the walking I do when I golf!
So that brings me to a total of 130 miles to date. I believe I will more than meet my uber-goal of 150 miles, even if I slack off, with almost four weeks left in the challenge. (The question is...will I make 200?) I will be traveling to Indiana for the holidays, and that is my favorite place to walk. My parents' farm is beautiful, and snow or no snow, I will be out in the mornings doing my thing.
How are things going with you? Did you kick the Thanksgiving blahs to the curb, or are you struggling like me? Don't forget to check in with Trish to get credit for all your hard work!
