Still Going!

it's 2012 and I'm still chugging along. I'm averaging about 9 miles a week at the moment, I'd like to get that up to 12+ once the weather lightens up.

I'm getting used to walking on my own more and more. Enjoying it as my quiet time. Almost like a time to meditate, ground myself, enjoy the fresh air and check in with nature. Even though it's mostly in my little neighborhood, I see lots of birds out and about...which I love!

Now that the rains are starting, the ducks will be moving back in to the seasonal stream and marsh area on my walking trail. It's such a treat to see them there, and watch them getting ready for their upcoming broods. Last year we had about two dozen baby mallards over there and a handful of Great Egrets with their young also. I also get a glimpse of Green Herons and a Great Blue Heron (My Bird!) once in a great while.

So I'm progressing. Slow and steady.

My next goal is to get my eating back in line with what's best for me. I'm not eating nearly enough protein or veggies at the moment. Hell. I'm not eating nearly ENOUGH of anything. I always forget how much I have to ACTUALLY eat to lose weight. It's hard to keep on top of it when my habit is to just not eat.

Pretty funny when a fat chick has to remind herself to eat, isn't it? :)
