Hey! I had two good step days in a row. <Patting myself on the back> LOL! Yesterday, I went to a Networking lunch in Leesburg. I had VIP parking (thank you Becky), but as I was leaving the meeting, instead of going directly out to my car that was parked out back, I went out the front door and walked around, just so I could get in some extra steps. It was even drizzling a little. (say awe) hehe
I find it interesting that when I put something out in Mintdom (the world) it does seem to happen. For instance, on July 16, I posted that I needed to walk at least 6,000 steps a day. I just looked back and at least eight (one day was questionable as I had technical issues with my pedometer) out of 14 days I posted better then 6,000 steps! I believe that there are a few things happening here.
1. I am a goal-setter AND goal-achiever. (I like competing with myself – it is a win-win!) LOL
2. I have you, the awesome residents of Mintdom holding me accountable with your encouragements. (I have not received even one reprimand for not making my steps). I think this might be a good parenting tool perhaps.
3. I am actually feeling the benefits of exercise. Wow – I am beginning to taste the fruit (and even trying to eat some too). Now THAT is a revelation!

I went out on a limb, when I started this morning e-mail and even farther when I posted it on Mintdom. I am amazed that I am sharing my personal journey with so many people. I am even more amazed at the benefits I am receiving.
The Mintdom question to you, today is, when was the last time that you went out on a limb, and how did it work out for you? Step out on a limb and share your stories here.
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
Life is good!
