New Year, New Beginnings

Saturday, January 01, 2011

This morning I walked up the road to the top of Mt. Nebo (elevation 1800 ft.) with my husband & his hiking club. It's 2.5 miles up and 2.5 miles down. Do I need to tell you that it is HARD HARD HARD???

Lots of people do this, but mostly athletes way more serious than me! People were jogging and even running up the mountain. Not me, I was so breathless I thought my head would explode. I concentrated on counting my steps and the switchbacks (there were 15 of them). Whew!

I always hate it when TC tries to talk me into something by saying, "Come on, you'll feel so good when it's over." WELL DUH!!! If it feels so good when it's over WHY DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE??

I also hate it when I have to admit he's totally right!! Right now I feel completely awesome, like I can do anything!

So I need to capitalize on that feeling -- it's time to GET CRACKING!

2011 is going to be a really exciting year for me with "something big" happening almost every month. I have a lot to look forward to, but yet a lot still to accomplish -- not the least of which is hitting my weight goal.

This I absolutely vow to do in 2011.

I wish all of you a wonderful year. Let's make it the last year we struggle to lose the weight!

    It's those dang endorphins that end up being our reward for our efforts. Yes I like them too.
    You are quite fortunate to have TC to coerce you.
    What a wonderful way to start the New Year!!!

    You started the year out with an Exercise Bang!! You definitely got crackin' today. You are setting the bar pretty high TG.

    The secret to loving exercise is to find something fun that you enjoy and good people to do it with. You have that. Can this be your hiking club too or can you only be a guest?
