It feels soooooo good to cross this one off my list!

I unintentionally completed this task in a fortnight, rather than a month. I’ve been trying to exercise at least every second day, and walking anywhere other than the city felt like a waste! I’m now looking forward to heading in a different direction and finding some new stuff next time I walk.

Some of the positives to come out of this task:

  • In two weeks, I have walked 100km (or 62 miles). That’s further than Brisbane to Surfers Paradise (80km) or Melbourne to Geelong (73km).
  • Between the exercise and a change in my eating habits, I have lost 5kg
  • I discovered that I can jog without completely sacrificing my capacity to breathe
  • I have discovered a stack of awesome shops and landmarks that I otherwise would not have come across or noticed
  • I’m learning heaps about my local area by navigating on the fly
  • I have been able to spend heaps of quality time with my good friends Ben and Regina

Very happy that this one is out of the way! I know that this is one thing I couldn’t have achieved without my trusty list, so I’m extra proud of myself for working my way through the tasks.

10 down, 91 to go!

you lost 5kg! that’s very good! i exercise once or twice a week (mostly just walking) and so far, the best i can achieve is to maintain my current weight. 😛

That list sounds intriguing.
*scratches head*
Maybe, just maybe I should take you as a good example and inspiration to do some on my list 🙂

Cool shot and yes, I have ipod envy 😉

Nicole: It was a Christmas present from Tim.

I think I’ll keep him a while longer 🙂

Yepp, sounds like a good idea 😉

Would love to have one too, but they are ridiculously expensive over here 🙁
So I got me and hubby a simple 1GB Nano, sigh 😉
