When I first got started on this blog, I posted about my short-term goal here. Well, later today, the reason for my short-term goal will be a reality - I will be getting on a plane to go to Ireland until November 2! And the best part is (well, actually, the best part is that I'm getting to go in the first place), is that I have accomplished my goal of being fitter and healthier by now. In six weeks since I started, I've covered a total of 43.41 miles more than my "normal" everyday activity, by walking, bicycling, and staying focused. I did get myself into the gym at least twice a week, and also during that time, I've lost 4.9 pounds, a change which I can actually feel and see in my clothes and my energy level.
And I've done all of this without doing anything crazy or desperate. I'm actually kinda bummed because I haven't been able to make it to the gym this week so far. However, the places we are staying all have gyms, and needless to say, we'll be doing A LOT of walking, so I have confidence I'll be able to keep things going well while I'm away. (My gym clothes and sneakers were the first things I packed.)
I'll try to post while I'm away, but if I don't get the chance, I'll certainly post when I return. Bye until the next time!
