Virtual Walk-Santa Fe, New Mexico DESTINATION!

01/25/09 Santa Fe Capitol

I have reached my destination! Last June, I set out on this virtual walk from my house in Eagle, Idaho to my sister's house in Santa Fe, NM - 997 miles. Almost eight months later, I have exercised (walked, treadmill, elliptical) my way down the western side of this country. In the meantime, I have lost 14 pounds and 3 inches off my waist! My blood pressure is really low and my cholesterol is about 20 points lower. Better yet, I have gained muscle tone, self confidence and knowledge of what fitness really means.

This virtual walk is now complete, but my fitness journey continues. I made it through the holidays gaining back a few pounds, but have buckled down and got back to my original goal. I have now set a new goal to reduce my body fat and continue building my strength. Nutrition has been a challenge and I'm still researching and testing the right food combinations to make the most of my physical fitness program. The best part is that I'm still learning!

emoticon Keep moving forward.
