This week, my health coach was out and had to miss our last group meeting for this session. In her stead, I was told I’d be running the group in her absence! (Note that I wasn’t asked!) Everybody expected me to talk about running, but I went a different direction and decided to spend today’s meeting sharing the various sites and apps that I’ve used along my journey! So, I figured I’d go ahead and share that list here for you all as well!

Enjoy!

This was in Wal Mart when I walked in Friday night. They really do carry everything!


For being smack dab in the center of the midwest…we sure have a hell of a lot of ‘Canadian’ geese.


If I had to guess, having a vampire at Christmas would suck. Oh…that wasn’t a question?


I hope that’s not mine…


On a serious note…the trash along Marylin Road is sad.


I know my pants are short, but there’s no need to be rude.


Monon Park in Carmel, IN. It’s a lovely place.


We’re not alone….


This was far more scenic than my boring sub division!


This was more fun when there was water in it.


The Monon Trail. This trail passes through most of Carmel and Indianapolis. Pretty nifty.

Total Miles Walked – 99 Miles
Total Pounds Lost – 22lbs
Outlook on Life – Kinda frustrated, but I’ll push through.

A little elbow grease, I think I can turn this into a book cover


It was a lovely sunset that night, fun to play with


Pretty, per That Ghoul Ava


Sometimes uphill can be a little overwhelming…


Someday, I will invent something that lives under this bridge.


Pokeymanz, I haz em!

Total Miles Covered: 59.3
Total Lbs Lost: 14

Downsizing in Full Effect

Today, it was nice out. The thermometer read 45 degrees. Conditions don’t get much better than that for taking a walk. So walk I did. 4.2 miles, to Hamilton Square Mall and back. On the bright side, I can see this 4 mile trek will be a breeze this summer thanks to the handy walking paths they installed along 146th street. To bad today they’re still covered with snow and ice!

Without any further rambling, here’s a little ‘photo blog’ of pictures I met along the way.


Mile 1. Long ways to go.


Thought I’m built like motorized vehicle, I think I can still pass


Please oh please tell me the owner’s name is Seymore


So tired of this view on my daily walks.

Bonus Pic!


Was so nice out today, I drug out the grill to make some dinner

Total miles covered this winter: 45.1
Total lbs lost so far: 12
