July 31/14

The summer is half gone already! Every year the time seems to go faster.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats, Scotland. I have now walked the entire length of England and am 20-odd miles north of the Scottish border. My goal is to finish this walk by December 31/14.

The summer is half gone already! Every year the time seems to go faster.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats, Scotland. I have now walked the entire length of England and am 20-odd miles north of the Scottish border. My goal is to finish this walk by December 31/14.

I calculated my weight loss goals the first of June. I have always been too optimistic about how much weight I could lose in a given time. My new goal is to lose 5 lbs. every 2 months. If I can do that, I will reach my goal of 150 lbs. by the end of February, 2015. That is my goal. In the meantime, I'm enjoying getting back into some of my size 12 pants.

The absolutely best thing is that I'm still here, 3 1/2 years after joining Spark People, I have never stuck with any program this long, and I expect to keep Sparking for the rest of my life.

I have met some wonderful new friends on SP. We care about each other, and are supportive of the ups and downs of our lives. A very sincere thank you.

Thanks for the movie tickets, we actually took our son to see the new ninja turtles movie on wed, something special we surprised him with. It was actually a really good movie.

It seems to me the first time I heard that joke, he got the second opinion before the surgery, thus saving himself a hospital visit.
Hope you are able to keep your powder dry. It has stopped raining here, but it keeps threatening.. the sky keeps vacillating between gray-dismal-and-chilly and bright-sunny-and-warm. I vote for bright-sunny-and-warm myself.
How is your virtual trekking coming along? I must have missed some installments on your achievements. Sorry, guess I am not as good a friend as I like to think I am. Hugs, Audra

Sorry to hear about Peter and his back. My hubby had a bad dream our first night here on our respite holiday from eldercare. He fell out of bed and separated his shoulder...we spent the first day of our holiday at the emergency room! Now taking baby steps for day two...
