Waving hello - new here - tiny steps

Hello!

I'm new here. My daughter was recently granted a wish from Make A Wish. Looks like we are headed to WDW for the first time this spring.

This past weekend we participated in the Walk For Wishes. It was a three mile walk to fundraise for our local MAW chapter.

And that is why I am here....

I could barely finish the walk. My legs are still aching from it and it was 4 days ago! Then the pictures went up. I had to really look closely to figure out who that person next to my daughters wheelchair was. Surely that wasn't ME?

Talk about a wake up call.

So now I'm here and hoping to gain a few friends and lose a few pounds.

I've set some very tiny first step goals for myself.

1) No eating after 7pm

2) 30 seconds more on the recumbent bike every 2 days.

And hopefully I'll be ready to join the November Challenge!

So, anyway......hello!

Welcome! Kudos to you for taking the first steps on your fitness journey! You'll find great information and support here.
I know you're bummed at how difficult the Walk for Wishes was for you, but don't discount that you started and finished.

Thank you!

So far I'm on track. I didn't eat after 7pm and I added my 30 seconds today on the bike.

I know it's only been one day though!

One day at a time!

That's how everyone starts: with one day...then another...
