Thank you, thank you and THANK YOU!

Hello world,

A HUGE thank you to everyone that has been emailing with such positive support and motivation!  You are all just amazing!

One of the emails had the great idea that we all do an imaginary ride together by logging our miles that we exercise as we "ride" through Scotland!  LOVE IT and doing it now!

The northern point we will start from is a northern spot called Thurso, we will go right through the middle of the country to Gretna, a Scottish border town that I really love.  It is and was famous for people eloping to it and Morton and I had toyed with the idea of doing just that, opted out for a wedding in the lovely town of Haddington in East Lothian, Scotland instead.

This route is about 360 miles and covers some of the prettiest parts of Scotland.

Last month I celebrated ten years of having my wonderful husband, Morton, in my life.  Time really has flown and we've done so many wonderful, wacky, incredible, scary, strange and fantastic things together, it's about time for another adventure!  I want to make sure I'm here for the next ten years with him by losing this weight and then NEVER letting it find me again.

So this is what I'm doing and I invite everyone out there to join me.  Starting today, right now, I'm going to move two miles EVERY day, for the next 180 days.

This is how YOU can get started.

Get a piece of paper (NOT A COMPUTER FILE!) and write down "360"
Then set your goal of how many miles you want to move a day.  It can be walking, riding your bicycle, on a machine at your gym or exercising.  One hour of exercise will equal one mile.

Next, figure out how long it will take you to reach Gretna in Scotland!  We are leaving TODAY, right now...from Thurso East is located at the mouth of the River Thurso, overlooked by the remains of Thurso castle, which I visited in the summer of 2000.

So write down what your goal is in miles each day, then GO FOR IT!  Keep writing and doing the math, getting closer to Gretna all the time.

I would love it if you would post on here what you are doing, how far you are going and help inspire others, including keep MOVING!

YAY for motivation, adventures and YOU!

P.S. My two miles a day will take me six months to complete.  Today I'm going to do two hours of exercise since it is hitting close to 100 degrees outside!  I'll do an hour now and an hour this evening.  Talk to you tomorrow to let you know how it went!
