Welcome to My Pink Goal!

January 3, 2010

It's Day 1 of both blogging & training & we're off to a smashing success!  I have a long way to go before I'm an expert at either one but for today we're calling it a win.  If you're following my blog thinking that I'm some expert walker with great knowledge, you'll be disappointed for sure.  I am 35 & rarely work out until now.  I never cook & eat out every day.  I easily have 100 pounds to loose & while beautiful am no where near ready for the cover of Self or for this walk.  I hope to share with you candidly my experience of making this life change...the good...the bad...and the sadly funny. 

It feels like I've entered a new phase or new way of thinking at least.  I know...very dramatic but it is kind of dramatic when I think about it.  I've been saying I would do this for years & something always seemed to derail my plans or should I say I let things derail my plans.  So this year, I've tidied up things in my life & am making room for my pink goal to become reality.  How awesome is that!?!?!?  I'm excited about raising money for Komen, the possibilities, life lessons, & direction completing this goal will provide. I admit I'm excited about the weight loss & improved body that will come from it as well. 

Day 1's training consisted of 30 minutes of cardio on the stationary bike.  According to it I went 6.39 miles & burned 327 calories.  I'm starting off on the bike to be sure my knee is completely heeled from twisting it a few weeks ago.  Soooo ready to be in better physical shape & not experience setbacks that come from being out of shape! 

The entire time I was thinking of the feeling I'll have when crossing that pink finish line.  I can't wait!
