Weekend Quote: Keep Walking

4 Comments 650 views


I’m just about ready to pack and head to the airport for my Willful Weekend Getaway. Tomorrow morning I’ll be running my 3rd Tough Mudder in Temecula, CA and I must admit, I’m nervous.

I haven’t worked out these last 2 day because of some pain in my lower back and now I’m questioning if I should be scaling walls and jumping in the mud. I’m not NOT going, so I’m in play it by ear mode.

Anyway, before I leave I wanted to post a weekend quote that got my attention this week.  It reminded me of my forward progression attitude with running and races

“If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.”-Buddhist Proverb

Isn’t that the truth!

Think weight loss.

Think fitness goals.

Think career aspirations.

Think life in general!

It doesn’t matter how fast we get there or how many stops we take. 

Just. Keep. Moving. Forward.

And you will get there.

Have faith!

Okay, time for me to go. I still have to take a shower and pack!

Elsewhere this week…

Have a great weekend! I’ll be sending updates on twitter and facebook if you want to follow my travels.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I feel so discouraged right now. I’ve been walking for 1/2 hour every day, and trying to keep my emotional eating in check, but I feel like I have so far to go (60 pounds) that I’ll never get there. I’m 5’6 and I weigh 203 pounds, I had my daughter take a photo of me and can’t even believe that it’s me. I will keep trying, but I have to admit that I don’t feel a lot of hope right now.

    It’s true Roni. Whatever happen but life goes on. The time
    doesn’t wait for anyone. So we just give it a shot, things will
    automatically come to the right place.
