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.

Walking, walking, walking!

I've also started walking. It was kinda hard at first. I used to walk to the refrigerator but that was about it. But now I really enjoy it. Oh, there's sometimes I don't feel like it (looking outside right now, it's rainy, cold and miserable) but I go anyway and before long I'm zipping along. I've kept a record of my walks and it brings great satisfaction to enter each walk's time and distance. I'm up over 64 miles so far this month all by walking and all by me! I believe it goes a long way to the lifestyle changes I needed to make.

So, Walk On!!!


  1. I came across you blog on one that I follow and the walking title hit home. I am also trying to lose weight and walking is my exercise of choice. I have walked in 2 5k's and love it. Keep up the good work and keep walking...

  2. Looks like you're making some killer progress there! And the movement...ugh...yeah that takes some time before you start enjoying it, even then ~gasp~ NEEDing it! I'm still not totally convinced I'm there yet, but when my body is screaming at me to get off my ass or it's going to 'splode...I think it's pretty close.

    PS: I'm in love with your bike. Seriously, I want to hump it.

  3. lol thanks! Call me Amber :)
