A Major Commitment January 9, 2008

Posted by reddlissa in Weight Loss/Fitness.

I have decided to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.  The Houston walk is April 12th and 13th.  I have never been part of a major event such as this but for some reason I feel compelled to join this fight.  The website has tons of great information, including a training schedule.  I will start training next week.  A friend from work has agreed to walk, too, and I’m really excited about having someone to train with.  She is our PE teacher so I know she will help me stay safe and keep me motivated. 

A nice “side effect” to the training will be weight loss.  I have (kinda) started back with Weight Watchers and I’m hoping that if I combine a stringent exercise program with a sensible diet I will see great results.

Wish me luck..and feel free to join us as “we walk as one” 🙂

Here’s her post:
