I am going to finish what I started. When I set my goals for this exercise challenge almost a year ago I had hoped to be wearing much smaller clothes today. I wanted to find 1000 caches, walk 2500kms, and lose 100 lbs. After feeling a little down I have received a lot of encouragement to convince me that two out of three is still pretty good. Among this support has included my friends at Groundspeak/Geocaching.com who allowed me to write a guest blog for their Latitude 47 blog. This support has allowed me see that even though I will not meet all my goals, I still made positive changes to my lifestyle this year. I now include daily exercise and I am much better for it.
I am closing in on the end of my challenge but I still have a ways to go to meet my caching/hiking targets. I have 67 more caches to find while walking 100 km in the next 17 days. I will accomplish this because it is now in my routine. And 18 days from now what will I do? I will go for a hike. There is no way I am not going to continue to do daily exercise and regular caching. I may not be able to get another 1000 caches in the following year but there will still be many finds. As for the weight loss goal? I am still confident that I will get to my ideal weight. We have made many lifestyle changes that have improved our health and we will continue to make better decisions.
I will not write a complete summary yet because there are still things to accomplish. I wanted to make sure I thanked everyone who has convinced me to complete this challenge. It has been a fun year of caching and lots more to come. Now I just have to find the right cache for #1000 for the challenge.
Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!
