And with a new month, comes a new challenge!
1. Get under 200 pounds
Totally doable. I just need to stay motivated and maintain my focus. And yes, now you know how much I weigh…ish. I’m still owning it!
A chunk of us are completing a month long push-up and plank challenge. This is not only going to be great from strength, but also for dedication. It;s good to have something healthy to do every day. Side note, push-ups are freaking hard!
3. 10, 000 steps/day average on FitBit
This will take some effort since my training isn’t all running based. The extra walk breaks during work will be good for me mentally and physically.
4. Walk the dogs a minimum of 4 times/week
Walking the dogs gets harder after daylight savings ends. It’s cold and dark. Plus, we have a big backyard, so it’s easy to skip the daily walks. Our lab is on the chunky side though and a walk can’t be replaced by running out in the yard. Hopefully this motivates me to get out of the house with them.
There is still time to be a part of the challenge! You can email either me or Desiree to join. I promise, we’re kind of freaking awesome. Not that I’m biased or anything.
I’d like to say that I started this challenge strong and energized, but I’d be lying. It was a rough weekend with far too much food and far too little movement. I did get to meet an awesome fellow challenger though! But that’s what Monday’s are for, right? Brushing yourself off and starting over. Now to just get my head on straight.
