A few minor setbacks will not keep me from moving forward!
Thursday, March 05, 2015
Sunday, March 1, I was full of enthusiasm and ready to set some records for myself during the month of March. I was planning on walking 100 miles, and exercising 1000 minutes throughout the month. As it so frequently happens, the first few days of my journey did not go as planned. Thankfully nothing major happened, but enough little stuff to keep me from doing what I had set out to do.
Wouldn't you know, that the very first day of my "March march" my pedometer stopped working. As it turned out I only needed to replace the battery, but I lost all my previous info. Oh well!
At the same time I was reminded that life with a teenager in the house can be somewhat challenging and require an extra amount of energy and compassion. My husband has been in a lot of pain for several months now and is almost disabled at the moment. He needs a lot of help currently which I don't mind giving, but it is rather time consuming.
All of that to say I got a little sidetracked, but the month is young, and I am as determined as ever to reach my goals.
I am so grateful for several of my Sparkfriends who offered to be my walking buddies for this month. Even though I am already a little bit behind in my journey, I feel inspired and blessed by those who have come along to keep me going and motivated. Thank you so very much!!!
One thing I have learned over the last few days: just because things don't go exactly like planned, there is no reason not to make some adjustments and keep going.
There are many different ways to reach a destination. If one way doesn't work, there are probably ten others that will. Detours and roadblocks are part of the journey. And who knows what kind of treasures we will discover along the way.
