Week 1 – Day 4 – 1.0 Mile

31 12 2011

Well, I gotta admit it, I started to feel the effects of all this walking in my legs. 😦  But that didn’t stop me from going to the gym! 🙂  I headed over there this afternoon and walked. I didn’t want to push myself too far, since tomorrow is just a day away, so I walked for 1.0 mile. I made a promise to walk at lease 1.0 mile, and believe me, I’m already beating myself up for not being able to go further.  I found out that tomorrow, New Years Day, my gym is closed! I looked at my husband and asked, “Where am I going to walk now?” He suggested that we go to the local high school and walk around the track. Perfect! So, tomorrow, Sunday, January 1st, 2012, I am going to walk at least a mile at the track! Don’t worry, my hubby will be there to take lots of photos! 🙂

Sadly only 1.0 mile today.

Week 1 – Day 3 – 3.5 Miles

30 12 2011

Today was amazing! I spent all morning going to different local businesses putting up flyers and talking to people about what I am doing!  I made it to the gym and started walking.  After walking 2.0 miles, some people reconized me from my flyers and asked me more about my charity: water campaign and what they could do to help.  So, I took a small break to talk to them about it and then I hopped right back on and walked another 1.5 miles! I’m so excited that my day 3 total is 3.5 miles!


2.0 Miles!


1.5 Miles!

Week 1 – Day 2 – 3.0 Miles

29 12 2011

Today was day 2 and I was pumped to get to the gym. During the day my hubby and I were running around to different local businesses trying to drum up donations and pledges! This evening rolled around and I was finally able to get to the gym!  I was determined to walk even further in one session and I did!  3.0 miles without stopping! 🙂

I'm loving it! 3.0 Miles!

Week 1 – Day 1 – Part 2 – 2.90 Miles

28 12 2011

As I said earlier today, I was going to head back to the gym to keep walking on the treadmill, and I did.  I walked an additional 2.90 miles!  That brings today’s total to 5.50 miles! Yay! 🙂

My walking summary from this evening! 2.90 Miles!

Week 1 – Day 1 – Part 1 – 2.60 Miles Walked

28 12 2011

Today was the first day of my charity campaign. My goal, to raise $5,000.00 for charity: water.  There’s no limit to the number of miles I will walk, but I made a personal promise to myself to walk at least a mile a day. Well,this morning I passed that personal promise and walked 2.60 miles!  But the day’s not over yet, I’m heading back to the gym tonight to see if I can walk even farther than that!


Getting ready to walk with my trusty charity: water Thermos by my side.
