A friend of mine, Felicia, AKA The Geeky Blogger, mentioned a couple weeks ago, about a new fitness challenge she was participating in, the Walk It Off in 30 Days Challenge, that starts October 1. I’ve been bemoaning my health for a while now. It got progressively worse as I dealt with untold difficulties in my work life for the past couple years. As a result, I got depressed, lazy, and stopped caring about what I ate, exercising, etc, which I had been a bit obsessive about for a long time, and gained way too much weight. I’ve been saying for a while I needed to do something about it, but what can I say, I’m inherently lazy and much prefer sitting on my butt reading, watching TV, and/or crocheting. When she told me about this 30 day challenge I started thinking… maybe this would be the kick in the butt I needed to get myself going again and rebuild those healthy habits I used to be so careful about.
Then, Felicia mentioned making it a book blogger “event” and challenging other bloggers to participate. So I decided, “what the heck?” I like challenges but the whole inherently lazy thing means that’s always my first thought. So this challenge gives me incentive, accountability, and friends to participate with for the month.
I’m not going to repeat everything posted on her blog, but I will link you to her page here, where she details her plans. And I will just copy one sement of her page here:
“For the month of October I will be following the hashtag #bookblogwalkers on both Facebook and Twitter! If you decide to play along then just use that hashtag! If you want to include Leslie Sansone’s hashtag, it is #whyiwalkathome”
I’m not going to make promises I can’t keep and say that I’ll post daily, but I WILL make a point to post at least once a week, with an update on how I am doing with my challenge.
Even better… why don’t you join us and have some fun getting healthy?
