July miles

Well the first month of my 750-mile challenge is over and my grand total for the month is….135.13 miles.  I am pretty freaking proud of myself.  I have not forgot to wear my pedometer even once!  My boss and I go for a walk everyday at work, and then Johnny and I either play tennis or go for another long walk when I get home at night.  I would like to say I have seen some benefit from walking 135 miles, but I haven’t.  I haven’t lost one pound, but I am hoping that I will in the end.  Only 614.86 miles to go.  HAHA that’s a lot of miles still. 

On another note, I thought my eyes were going to fall out last night after editing pictures for over 7 hours yesterday.  I took about 400ish pictures of my friends daughter for her senior pictures.  I have a few on my flickr account if you want to check them out.

Goal # 8: Enter my pictures in a photo contest and actually win something.

I have accomplished goal #8.  Last year I entered my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding picture in a photo contest and I won $50.  And this year I entered a few pictures in a another local contest and I won for 3 of them, with a total of $100 in gift cards to local businesses.  Here are my winning pictures.
