What have you done today to make you feel proud?

Well, the scales moved down a little today finally after a frustrating few weeks. Then this afternoon, I had my little win.  I was going for my walk and I had promised myself that I was going to do a long walk in preparation for Sunday’s 7 Bridges Walk.  As I started my walk, the wind had kicked up over the lake and it was getting really blowy and almost unpleasant.  Then the negotiations started, you know the ones “it’s really getting windy, maybe I should just walk to the bridge and back…it won’t matter and I’ll do a long walk tomorrow” (of course,  I have staff meeting at work tomorrow afternoon, so you know the name of that tune).

I got to the bridge and had to choose, to turn around and let the devil on my shoulder cheer or to keep going.  I thought to myself, “you know you may as well keep going to the same spot as you walked to yesterday, it’s not that far” and kept on going.

I reached yesterday’s turn around spot and thought, “it’s not that far to the park where the markets are, I could  keep going to the beginning of that path” and on I went.  As I was getting close I thought “if my Sportsband doesn’t show 4.5kms, I’ll keep going until it does” (thereby turning my walk into a 9km round trip).  By then the next signpost said “Jamieson Park – 1.3km and I decided that it wasn’t that far and I may as well do it.  I went on and on this way at every marker and by the time I finally returned to my car, I had walked 12kms and burned 911 calories!  I AM the little engine that could!


  1. Yay! Good work! 🙂
