Happy Sunday evening!
Been having a hard time sitting down to post on my own blog but ....I think I am now caught up on everyone's blogs. Ok, the reason for the post and annoying title!!! I set my exercise goal for part of August to be 1100 minutes. (Let's recap for a moment, shall we? I had completed 1000 exercise minutes from July 23rd to Aug.7th so I added a bit more for the rest of Aug. to challenge myself. Please remember during that time frame tons of exercise and eating 1200-1400 calories and I lost ZERO pounds!!!! Fun times) Anywhoozle, I cut back on the exercise a bit, starting eating MORE (like 1500-1600) calories....I know....a totally scary combo for a life-long dieter...and then had a fill. So I have actually dropped a few pounds this week. Yeah.
GET TO THE POINT ALREADY!!! (I am actually yelling at myself! hmmmm)
Ok the point is, since I wasn't going quite so crazy w/ the exercise, I was starting to get worried that I wouldn't meet my Aug. 30th goal. BUT I am gonna do it ....all thanks to training walk today. My friend and I walked for FOUR HOURS........yes, 4 hours (about 15.5-16 miles) because we are preparing for the Susan G. Komen 3day for the Cure walk in November where we will walk 60 miles in 3 days. The walk today was good, the conversation great, my hips were sore, but I got to add all of those lovely minutes to my exercise ticker. Yipee!
