#GoTheDist 3.2

or nearly… I’ve finally found the sweet spot between my #GoTheDist goal being a challenge, but an attainable one. I knew that July would be bad, and it was. But I set two goals and I made one of two. The goal was 250K steps and I ended up with 260,908. Mileage goal was 117 […]


#GoTheDist? Pfft Bridge The Dist

after a renewed interest in bridges of late, I have been on a mission. By borough I have crossed as follows: Bronx to Manhattan: Macombs Dam Bridge  in May 2013 Manhattan to Brooklyn: Brooklyn Bridge: more times then I can count, also via bike Manhattan Bridge: June 2014 Williamsburg Bridge: Summer 2013 Manhattan to Bronx: […]


#GoTheDist 2.2

About halfway through May I realized that 300,000 steps for the month was doable after just missing it. And then I became a woman on a mission to make it happen. I wasn’t sure if I had since I was away from my spreadsheet but after entering Weds-Sat… I MADE IT! May Totals: 305, 841 […]


#GoTheDist and DietBet: miniupdate

so after (over)thinking about it, I decided to join a DietBet. While they didn’t work perfectly for me, they were a good jump start and that’s what I’d like about now. I also think I’m in a better frame of mind for it then I was when I took a break last year. As an […]


#GoTheDist 2013: Went

I did it, I did it. Yes, you should read that in a complete sing-song voice since I am wearing a pink tiara. Been a good #GoTheDist year, despite a rough start after which I revised my original goal of 750 miles down to 500. Then, in July, I realized my initial goal was doable […]


Bookworm nerd alert

Since I don’t foresee myself finishing Rogues’ Gallery (at all, never mind by tomorrow) or Do You Speak Shoe Lover, I think I’m going to finish 2013 with 35 books read (and 5 unfinished). That is short of my goal, but not bad at all. Huge shout out to the 6 I read while away […]


#GoTheDist Q4: Two months in

Whoops, I’ve been bad here since I discovered Tumblr. My Q4 goals were: 102.7 miles walking and 52.5 miles on the bike.  My comment on that was that I hoped to have hit both by the end of November. I nearly hit that in October, walking wise, with 99.11 miles walked but fell short on […]


Accountability 3.0

Via LifeWithFitness.when I was rebuilding the blog, I stopped to read my early thoughts on accountability, which I revisited in April. I said I was going to get the rest of the way to goal this year, and while that isn’t going to happen, the above summarizes my feelings on my progress this year. I’m […]


#GoTheDist minigoal: met

At the beginning of September I said my newest goal was to do better Q3 than Q2 I knew it was going to be a tall order with some long walks this spring, but I thought I could do it. Well Q3 ended this week, how did I do? Time Frame Steps Miles walked Miles […]


Whooah, we’re half way there
Livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it – I swear
Livin’ on a prayer

Holy crap. Not only am I way more than halfway to my 500 miles goal, but I’m almost halfway to my original goal of 750 which I revised in early May. Part of that is due to the improved weather, part due to some ridiculous walks and part due to my determination to beat my daily Jawbone goals. Competitive with myself? Never! But I love my data.

Here’s to an even more amazing Q3 and second half.
