Road Trip Review 10/27 - 11/02

Whew! We're finally into November!!! WOOOO!!!

Last week I suffered a bit, and was still unfocused. I also had some major events happen last week that I'm hoping will change me for the better!

I got a new job! YAY!! I was pretty miserable in retail... and although I am not all the way out of retail, I'm stepping in the right direction and my "Black Friday" will not be as bad as it has been the last ten years I've worked in retail.

I also got to spend more time with my nephew. It's getting much easier to handle him, I'm learning to treat him like a little person, rather than a child. He's still not talking much, but according to what I've read online, it's pretty normal for a 17-month-old. He has about 5 words under his belt, but I'm working on "Ti-ti Julie" next. It'll be alot better than him yelling "stop!" all the time (I think it's his favorite word lol).

Here's one of our latest selfies....

Look at that smile!!! :-D He's so handsome!

So, with that said, let's move right along into the numbers....

Sunday - 1.75 miles
Monday - 2.40 miles
Tuesday - 3.42 miles
Wednesday - 4.16 miles
Thursday - 2.70 miles
Friday - 4.04 miles
Saturday - 3.87 miles

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw these numbers. I wore my FitBit Zip everyday except for Sunday, which is why I put down my "normal" steps for that day.

Weekly total ::: 22.34 miles
Weekly goal ::: 24.50 miles
Deficit ::: -2.16 miles

I'll take that as a victory. Having still not really put myself back into the healthy mindset, I feel like I did try a little harder this week than the last week, and although I missed the goal, I feel alot better that I did make more of an effort, even if I didn't want to.

So, where am I now? With this week's total, it puts me at.....

407.50 miles!

Only 220 miles left to go!!

So, I'm getting closer! I can almost smell the forrest-y smell of the National Park now.... YUMMMM

I am sooo close! Stopping between Charleston and Savannah this week.

Look at that beautiful red line!! :-)

A comparison of Amy and I up to week 16 (this week).
I might be closer but she's right on my heels, I think she really
wants to make some s'mores!! :-D

Amy and I have both been quite busy. And, she's decided to SuperWoman herself up and join in on Na[tional]Blo[g]Po[sting]Mo[nth], where she posts one blog a day for the month of November! No thank you! LOL But I will be excitedly reading hers!!!!! Just make sure to REMIND HER TO GET HER FITNESS IN!!!! Maybe she can do a daily blog about just how much this challenge means to her to finish!???! [HINT HINT!!]
