Where to start???

Well, I decided to start this blog about 2 things in my life that I love and hate. I love cooking, traveling the roads on my motorcycle throughout the Eastern Canada/United States region and traveling. What do i hate? I hate how overweight I am. I am 51 years old and finally this year, I have decided to do something about it. I joined Weight Watchers on January 6, 2010. I weighed 304 pounds! Even I never thought I was that heavy! I was, and still am, disgusted with myself. How did I get here? Well, that's part of what i will be exploring with this blog. So, I am starting out on another journey. This time however, it will not be bike travels on twisty roads, with the wind in my face and pure joy and excitement but rather a road that will be much harder to travel, but hopefully with rewards and accomplishments along the way. So, I am starting this blog a bit late but better late than never. Plus, I am at the point where I have been successful so far but am in need of a little more motivation. I say more motivation because, well, I guess I should have enough motivations already (and I will list them in a later post) but I guess I am feeling a bit stagnat.

Goal for the month.

Okay, different than a weight loss goal. I am worried I am becoming too obsessed with weight and will drive everyone around me crazy!!!

Nope, this one is a completely personal achievement. I'd like to walk 100 miles this month. I've already walked 72.5 miles. Wasn't something I started out thinking but it's been niggling in the back of my head for a week or so now. So, let's see, 6 days left, and 18 miles to go, should be do-able!

I'll keep you posted!

**New Note:** As I was on my walk today I got to thinking my math was wrong. Yep, I'd have to do 28 miles in 6 days. And i know that's too much. So, I decided to go for a more realistic goal. 86 miles. Why 86? Because that's double what I did in February! Anything past that is a bonus.

By the way, just did 5.35 miles at lunch! Took me an hour and 35 minutes but I work a lot longer than I get paid for a lot of days so i don't begrudge taking the extra time.
