To start, I was away for the first 4 days of the month. I was still on my real roadtrip to Tennessee to see my big brother. To read about that, go here. :-)
Then, when I got back late morning Tuesday the 4th, after having drove home straight from TN which was about a 15 hour drive, I promptly slept for a whopping 4 hours. Yup. A cat nap. I got up, went to zumba that night, then came home and slept like a baby. Then on Wednesday I went to class like normal, and had to swing by my work to print some stuff out. Luckily I did, because I thought I had the day off (according to a text a few days prior from my A/M), but the schedule was changed and it ended up that I did work. And I also worked the rest of the week. So, long story short, my return home was not easy going nor did I slip back into routine, it was more like I was thrown off a cliff and have since been bouncing and rolling out of control down the side of the mountain.
So, let's review!
- The distance from home to Crowley’s Ridge State Park in Arkansas is 849 miles.
- The distance from Crowley’s Ridge to Devil’s Den State Park (also AK) is 215 miles.
- For a total of 1,064 miles.
- Our challenge runs January 1st thru October 31st, which is 304 days.
- This means I need to walk 3.5 miles per day to hit my goal!
- Of that 3.5 miles, only half, or 1.75 miles, can come from NORMAL every day walking.
The Road So Far....
January I walked a total of 79.79 miles.
My goal was 108.5 miles.
I have a deficit of -28.71 miles.
Ouch. Disappointing to say the least. On a positive note, I am extremely happy to have my FitBit. All I had to do to find my distance count was go to the website and sync my FitBit. I was able to view 1/1-1/31 easily after that. It even gave me a cool chart!
Well, now I have incentive to get off my ass! Amy did a WONDERFUL job with her month! She ended up being 1.82km OVER her goal distance!!! WAY TO GO GIRL!!!!! I am very jealous that I am so far behind, but I will do my best to kick some butt in this short month and catch up!!
My maps are sad to say the least. And, I still have not finished my actual marker for the map in my office, so I will add those in when I finish that piece up. For now, I have my also sad Google Maps pictures.
Looks more impressive closer up of course. :-)
Here's to February! BTW... I'm working on a small surprise for my bestie... so SHHHHH Don't tell her! ;-)
