Tuesday May 31, 2011 - Long Holiday Weekend..

It was a long and wonderful Holiday weekend for us.  We went to the Deer camp Friday night and spent the night and came back Saturday to keep our grandson.  I enjoyed my pool all weekend and the weather was just about perfect for it.  It is getting really hot here and the water was cool and it felt great. 

My eating has been a whole other story and I have gone back to writing everything down instead of trying to put it in my phone.  Well actually I am doing both so we will see how that goes.  I am trying to get my self back on track and get some kind of weight loss going again.  So far I am pretty much where I was at Christmas and that just pisses me off at myself.  I pretty much lost control when we went on our cruise and I know it.  Now it is up to me to get control and I do not seem to be doing a very good job. 

I am thinking about taking up walking in 5 K's again and posting an ad in our local news paper for someone to walk with.  I need a major walking partner and it needs to be someone who can walk  a couple of times a week and afford to walk in 5 K's with me.   I had thought about Craig's list, but I feel like I would be better off with our local news paper and it is not that expensive.   I would love some comments on this subject.  So come on bloggers tell me what you think..

Okay I am going to go and read some posts and see what has gone on with every one this weekend.  Have a great day.

Walking certainly can't hurt, Debbie, and it may be just what you need to get going again. What about your treadmill, and walking it first thing when you get home in the evenings? Just make your last appointment of the day with yourself. If official 5K's and preparing for them will help you, then by all means, do it. Twice a week to meet up with a buddy should be easy for both of you. Good luck in finding just the right thing.

Putting an ad in the local paper is a great idea, go for it!

I wish I had a walking partner sometimes, it gets quite boring walking alone, especially after hearing the same tunes on the ipod 100 times! If I lived there, I would walk with you but as I live a million miles away, i wish you luck with finding a local partner! :)

I just posted on FaceBook last week that I wished I had someone local to do the C25K with, I know I can join the running room, but it intimidates me a bit.

A walking partner sounds like a lot of fun! I love walking (especially 5k races!) and it's always better when you have company. I definitely agree with looking in the paper before Craigslist!

Debbie, I am sorry you are struggling. I hope you'll get back to your good old ways soon. An add in the paper sounds good. Hope you find a good partner, but even if you don't do it on your own. Usually, when I start doing something alone it opens me up to meeting new people who are also doing it on their own. Good luck!

Kudos to you for sticking to blogging even when your results are what you hoped for. Good luck on finding a walking partner. Someone to be accountable to and to be encouraging is so helpful.
