foothills near where I am staying in Southern Spain (Estepona).
Come with me...we will walk for about 35 minutes.
First, we need to go up and down several flights of stairs.
Here is our view of the Sea as we reach the landing and exit from our apartment.
Next, we walk to the gate.
Walk toward the sidewalk over there.
The side walks here are all paved in brick.
Careful there is a round-about. Let's cross over carefully.
After we cross the street we can start up our first hill.
This one is not too bad, you can do it!
The street lights are just coming on.
Keep on walking, you can do it!!
Hot 100 Challenges
1.Lose an additional 12 pounds by December 24, 2010. This is doable because there are 12 weeks until Christmas Eve and I lose about 1.3 pounds per week
(As you know from my Monday post, I lost three pounds. Nine left. )
2.Keep up my biking (at least 45 miles a week) AND include more walking (4 times a week at least 2 miles at a time) outdoors until the weather forces me inside.
(Well this was an interesting week. I rode my bike about 35 miles before
I left for Spain (including back and forth to the Vikings game!) but I
will not meet this goal because I do not have a bike here. But, walking,
I am at 8 miles today).
3.Take care of myself each day by eating less, moving more,
and eating plenty of fruits and veggies.
(Yes. I went grocery shopping today with my students. I loaded up our apartment with fruits and salad type veggies. So, I am better armed for this one, although this past week was good).
4.Have more 1200 days in a week than 1500-calorie days.
(I had 3 - 1200 a calories days, before I left. Now that I am in Spain, I am
watching what I eat, but I think I have had more 1500 days)
5.Drink more water. At least two liters per day.
(Yes, every day).
Many of you wrote posts regarding Veterans day. For me this was significant because
my father, who recently passed, served in WW 2. Because of my dad, ten years ago
my whole family went to Normandy to see for ourselves what the soldiers had done.
I will never forget it. Ever. We are all indebted, and still are, to the service men and women.
For another take on remembrance and healing, take a look at
Mind over Fatter's post.
Have a great weekend everyone and stay strong in your journey!
Adios Amigos! Michele
