One goal.


I need them, especially when it comes to fitness.

The numbers on the blood glucose meter, the numbers on the scale? They mean nothing if I am not doing what I can to stay physically fit. Right now, they both look awesome, but I know I feel emotionally crappy. I should be feeling physically crappy, but for whatever reason, I am not. That makes getting back to a state of physical fitness difficult. Why do I bother if there is no issue with the meter or the scale? If those two measures of physical fitness are fine, why bother exercising at all, no matter the emotional state?

Because I know from previous experience that it can all go south quickly.

And because I know my mother thinks I do everything I can to stay as healthy as possible.

One goal.

Six weeks to get into enough shape to walk a 7k timed event. An event that happens to occur on my mother’s next birthday.

Because I owe it to her to stay as healthy as possible.

  1. One thing at a time is the best way to go for me too! I thought it was just me, but my weight can rock along pretty well even if I don’t always eat what I should. Then WHAM! I gain 5 pounds. How does that happen?

    I like the idea of a timed walking event. I wish there was something like that around here. good luck with your “training”!
