After publishing my February 2014 health goals, I found that Money Saving Mom and the Geeky Bloggers Book Blog were hosting fitness challenges with weekly check-ins to help keep us accountable and motivated. They each have linkies where we can post our goals and updates to support one another in achieving our exercise goals…one small victory at a time!
Crystal from Money Saving Mom is challenging us to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables this month in her 12 Months to a Healthier You challenge.
I’ve done better this week with eating more fruits and veggies, adding blueberries or bananas to cereal. I’ve been doing well eating more salads too this week, incorporating leftover homemade chicken nuggets into a Chicken Ceasar Salad with Strawberries for lunch yesterday and into a Barbecue Chicken French Bread Pizza with a hefty side salad for dinner today.
Felicia from The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog is continuing to host her Book Blog Walkers challenging us to walk (or do some form of exercise) for 30 minutes a day. My goal is to exercise 4-5 times a week.
Update: I failed miserably in my exercising goals this week. My two younger sons starting swim lessons threw off the routine I had just fallen into. Time to rearrange my schedule. Exercising time is also my reading time and I am missing both!
Saturday, February 15: nothing, I was working on taxes all day long.
Sunday, February 16: nothing, more taxes.
Monday, February 17: nothing unless you count trying to wrestle Daredevil into his swim class.
Tuesday, February 18: 40 minutes on stationary bike, 418 calories burned, 8 miles
Wednesday, February 19: nothing, ahhh!
Thursday, February 20: played with Daredevil at the playground, not as much exercise for me, but more fun and somehow still tiring. It was a beautiful day!
Friday, February 21: nothing planned, doc appointments today and catching up on cleaning will wear me out.
It’s not too late to join in getting some extra exercise and healthy fruits and veggies into your day. Visit these wonderful bloggers and the participants who have linked up to get that boost of motivation you need to accomplish your exercise goals.
