Is there a better way to loose weight? For a cause! I also might join the pound for pound challenge! A double wammy!!
Last Tuesday I started training. We walked and walked well... and walked some more. We walked somewhere between 3 and 5 miles. I did well for not being in shape. My shoes on the other hand DID NOT do their job. They were great shoes at one time, but the are just worn out. The last half mile or so they took their tole on my footsies, the balls of both my feet were killing me which caused me to walk funny, I was putting all my weight on the out side of my feet. When I arrived home, my body was sore and tired, my feet wow hurt, I slipped off my shoes and low and behold 2 blisters on the ball of my left foot, OUCHIE!! Nick gladly rubbed my feet.
Wednesday a whole new pain arrived, I really hurt my ankle by walking funny. So Ive been limping around here, its been a joy. This weekend we will be purchasing me some new running shoes! Maybe then my feet will be in better shape!
Ok so weight lose is a major part of this walk, but its not the only part. My grandmother just passed away from cancer complications, it wasnt breast cancer, but she did battle breast cancer a few short years ago. My great aunt had breast cancer, and my Mom in Law just finished treatments for breast cancer. Its real, its hard, and I pray that a cure is found by the time my girls face it.
So here it is:
I am committed to raise $1800 by the day I walk, WOWZERZ!!! I know I can do it, but not without your help. There are a couple ways you can do so, You can visit my page and donate any amount, $5-$1800 ;o) anything will help! It all adds up! Another way is by donating for my Silent Auction Im hosting this summer. If you wanna know more about that, let me know!
Im super excited to walk 39.3 miles! and Im not at the same time, it will be an adventure! One to remember, I will try to update you here on my progress. I will be walking every Tuesday, increasing the miles as the weeks come!
Thanks for supporting me!!
