Day 117 We Are A Team

Second great day in a row back on track, focused and moving forward after Sunday's mess. I walked hard twice today, once at Wal Mart and once at the track at lunch. I got a total of 4 1/2 miles altogether today! I am going to try to get at least 4 miles a day from now on excepting Monday. I think two miles on Monday as a recovery will be just fine.

I have noticed that slowly but surely, my calorie count just keeps creeping down down down. I am now getting in the 1300s on a fairly regular basis. I remember the anxiety that I got on start day of trying to stay below 2000 calories a day! How funny it is that with some good habit forming and new attitudes, I can get through the day on 1300 to 1400 calories. I am so happy to see this day come.

As I have talked about before, I was into organized sports when I was younger. There is still some jock in me I will tell you that. But the thing that I took from all those years is the joy of being on a team, the camaraderie. I loved that I knew my teammates had my back and I had theirs. That is what I have found here in blogland is another team! We are in this fight together, it is war and we are an army! We each go into battle every day and we all have each others back! Blogging is so great that way. It is that missing piece that many of us, myself included, have been missing all these years trying to do this alone. Now, we are an army! I want to thank each and every one of my followers, and especially the folks who are regular commenters, for all the support and the support you give me and the way you keep me movtivated! Thanks so much guys and gals.

  9. I would love to be on your team any time. You are leaving me in the dust on the walking, though. I've got to step it up a bit to try to keep up with you!

  10. Yes, I agree the blogging community is really a team. I am constantly amazed at all the support I get. Plus, it keeps me accountable, because I know I will be writing about what I did to my blogging community.
