Day 1/Mile 1 Down...Only 364 to Go

Day 1/Mile 1 down...only 364 to go!OK.  So, just about everybody makes a New Year's resolution or two (the most popular of which is to lose weight).  However, by the end of January, those resolutions tend to go by the wayside.  That's why I'm calling this a "lifestyle change/habit" instead of a "resolution".  Like a good Cinnabon, I want it to stick!

Luckily, my friend Carra Riley created an event on Facebook called 365 Miles in 365 Days.  Everyone is welcome.  In fact, the bigger the group, the more people to support you in your efforts.  We're ALL cheerleaders here.  However, you'll need to be invited.  It's easy to be invited...just ask.  Friend me on Facebook and let me know you're interested.

Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu said that the journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step.  Day 1/Mile 1 down...only 364 to go for me (by the way, that says 1.230 miles in the photo, not 1230 miles...I ain't THAT good!).  Your journey can begin the first day you join (whether that be January 1st, January 2nd, February 10th or beyond.  I don't yet know what the end will be exactly, but I do know that these shoes are gonna get one heck of a workout.  Healthy New Year, everyone.

Heather, thanks for letting us know about this.  How does one get invited if they are not on FB?  Congratulations on one day under your belt!  Do we get a gift card to Cinnabon if our request is accepted???

what a great idea - I love to walk in the evening with my daughter- the only problem being that she will be going back to Boston soon! I guess I just have to make myself care enough to keep walking! I like the Facebook idea- thanks for sharing.

Yay, Tim.  Keep it up.  I have to hold myself accountable to someone in order to stay focused.  It's just too easy to go back to sleep.

First of all, Bruce. No Cinnabon or gift card to Cinnabon or recipe to Cinnabon. What you get is a slimmer waistline and a healthier you. THAT has to be your reward. As for Facebook...it's time to hop aboard the social media marketing train and join. It's really simple to do and can be an excellent way to build up/keep in touch with your client base. If you need help, email me and I'll get you in touch with my boss at Second Self.

Cool beans, Bill. If you would like to join our group on Facebook, send me a friend request at https://www.facebook.com/realestatevirtualassistants and I'll send you an invite. It makes it a little easier to stay motivated when you have your own personal group of cheerleaders behind you.

You should come join us, Lisa. You get cheered on to "humble brag" about your accomplishments. One step at a time. I work two jobs, take care of a house, dog, husband and kid and I find that I just have to make time to take care of me. Nighttime and early mornings were always my favorite to take a walk around the block.

I'm so grateful that you and John put this idea together, Carra. I am the sort of person that needs to be accountable to someone in order to follow through on exercise. My bed's siren song calls me back every time. However, I need to get to my training for my Grand Canyon hike in November. This will definitely keep me on track. And, it's fun to be a cheerleader for so many others.

Actually, my dad and I are going to hike down 1 day and back up the next (camping overnight). I'm not so much worried about the "down" part as I am the "going back up the next day" part. Yikes! Lots of training in store. That's why your invitation came at such a fortunate time for me. Thanks again!
