Feb 8 ~ Middleton Place

So today I didn't quite get in that mile! UGH. I promised honesty, right? I will post a picture instead…

I loved our visit to Middleton Place, right outside of Charleston, SC. We simply must go back in the Springtime, when the flowers are in bloom. Even still, this particular day in December held a beauty all it's own with the heavy skies, and dreariness. Winter, yes, but still and beautiful.

Tomorrow I will get back that mile. I am making progress, I am feeling stronger, and I don't have the pain in my elbows anymore!  Plus, my sweet husband bought me some cool workout clothes and I can't wait to put them to good use. Hey, anything for motivation, right?

FEB 2 - Stats

Blogging every day is hard. And apparently, so is walking a mile every day. Last Saturday, I missed it. So that's 2 days I've missed for the year! I'm still going though! 

I will share these stats though...  in JANUARY, I walked or ran 35 miles, burned over 6000 calories, and logged 39 activities. I'd say that is a HUGE improvement over my Jan 2014... I'm proud of my progress and I feel strong! (Shout out to the Runkeeper app! Find me there, and we can be friends :) 

Last week was a crazy week, but it was so good. I worked out at the Dan Kinney Center a lot (and we finally joined, too! I feel so legit.), I edited pictures, made orders, paid bills, made new friends, My daughter sang the National Anthem at a HS basketball game and she nailed it! My other daughter bought me a new instrument... A mountain dulcimer! And today I booked another wedding! 

I truly am learning that this journey is about progress, not perfection. I will have to really kick in my good eating habits, & then MAYBE I will see results. 

So keep checking in... I'll just have to share more pics to keep you interested, but I WILL be here!
