The wonderful Felicia at Geeky Bloggers Book Blog has decided to do the Book Blog Walkers Challenge every month in 2014. I've had a good week, despite some hiccups on the home front which resulted in no inclination to blog but I did 'stress' walk ... yay me!
I'm combining the fun of this group and my fitbit, chatting with friends and fellow bloggers to stay
excited motivated about exercise. It also helps that our dog Bella loves her walks.
Over the last week I've walked each day with the exception of last Saturday where I literally dragged myself around at snail's pace in 41 degree heat (106). Weekdays I walk Bella for 45 mins in the early evening and listen to an audiobook and on the weekend my partner walks with me.
My best day was Wednesday 15,300 steps (approx 10.5km) and least day Saturday 6,100 steps and I had 4 days over 10,000 steps which sounds more impressive than it really is as the fitbit is a step counter for the entire time it's worn so as long as your moving, steps are counted. A bit over half of my daily steps are done during intentional exercise, the rest while gardening, groceries, housework etc etc.
I'm thinking that if I keep this up not only will it get me fit and healthy for a busy holiday in the UK in late Oct with my best friend and her daughter but I'm considering doing my first ever Bridge to Brisbane in September and I can't believe I'm saying that lol ... participants choose 5km or 10km.
Sign up ... it's actually fun
How's everyone going? need an extra cheer?
