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.
Update: I have been eating a spinach side salad for dinner this week and eating some fruit. I stocked up on some blueberries, bananas and clementines so I can do better next week. Not quite getting my 5 servings of fruit a day yet but I love putting blueberries or bananas on top of my cereal, cream of wheat or oatmeal in the mornings.
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.
Feb 1: Stationary bike for 32 minutes, 6.5 miles, burned 321 calories and did 1 55-second plank
Feb 2: none, Sunday, day of rest
Feb 3: Stationary bike for 40 minutes, burned 407 calories
Feb 4: Stationary bike for 50 minutes, 9.0 miles, burned 480 calories
Feb 5: I overdid it yesterday and was in pain between exercising and mommy duties so took another day of rest
Feb 6: Bathroom cleaning and mopping kitchen and bathrooms, shouldn’t that count for exercise? No extra energy left for exercise
Feb 7: After dusting/vacuuming, I’ll ride the bike today. That will accomplish my 4 days of exercise this week!
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.
