Starting weight:  212
Current weight: 199
Total loss: 13 pounds

I have gained a few pounds, but I am not surprised. I took the past week off from cardio and the past few days off from walking. I just got too busy and haven’t felt like it. I needed the rest, anyway. I will make up for it, starting today.

This week’s workouts:

Saturday: 2 hrs. of yard work/ 275 steps
Sunday: 2 hrs. yard work/ 210 steps
Monday: 623 steps
Tuesday: 60 steps
Wednesday: rest
Thursday: rest
Friday: TBA

Most people only dream of doing something like what Matt is doing. I am one of them. I think his journey is amazing, and I only wish I had the ability to do the same.

If I had the resources, I would travel to him and walk beside him as long as I could.

So, after staying up until the wee hours of the morning reading every post and looking at every picture Matt has posted along his journey so far, I am now filled with wanderlust. The best I can do to cure it is walk in my home and add to my step count, then maybe hit the park later for some much-needed cardio.
