It’s only been a few days since I blogged about the cake baking challenge I was beginning. Let’s call that the Yin. That would make the challenge accepted yesterday the Yang. I’ve been following Molly B’s blog, I’m a Sleeper Baker, for a while – interesting writing about cooking, family life and activities. I noticed that Molly has taken on the challenge issued by Mel on her blog, Tall Mom on the Run, to log 1,000+++ miles in 2010. Mel has already done 1,000+ in 2009 and plans to do 1,333+++ this year! Molly seems like an active gal, and I’m sure that she’ll meet this goal.
I started wondering if I could do this too – walking not running; it will take more time. My bean-counting brain quickly told me that this is less than 3 miles a day. It’s doable but would be a HUGE change in my behavior. That would mean that I couldn’t hit the snooze button in the morning and make excuses about how I’ll get on the elliptical later in the day. That would mean that I couldn’t find reasons not to walk the dog after work. I’ve already received an encouraging email from Mel (Tall Mom), and on my first day have put in 3 miles. I’ll update you at the end of the first quarter.
