Update on my "March march"
Sunday, March 15, 2015
This update is long overdue and I apologize to my Sparkfriends who offered to be my walking buddies for this month.
Right from the start of my ambitious endeavor I faced all kinds of detours and hurdles. I am sad to say things have not changed. I keep getting sidetracked and bombarded with unexpected events, and I am barely holding on. I do realize that my goals at the beginning of March were ambitious, but I really thought they were totally doable. Well, as so often dreams (goals) and reality don't go together.
I have not been able to exercise any significant amount, however, I did faithfully wear my pedometer and as of today, March 15th, I have walked 43 miles this month. Most of these steps were accumulated just by doing my daily activities and chores. I can only imagine what I could accomplish if I actually could dedicate time for nice long walks.
I know how important goal setting is during this journey, but for me it almost seems that every time I do set specific goals, life gets more complicated.
I will not give up on my "March march", but I have to accept the fact that I need to make adjustments, and basically just do the best I can, given my circumstances. That really is all I can do.
Still moving forward!
