I almost got this up on the 1st of the month! Leslie Sansone put out a great idea with My Fitness Pal for a 30 Day Walking Challenge in the month of June.
I’m hopping on the bandwagon and would love for you to join me!!
I have absolutely loved my FitBit and it has helped motivate me a lot. I lost it and after spending a month searching for it, I broke down and bought a replacement. Now I need to get back to hitting my goal of 10,000 steps a day and then moving up from there! I think this challenge is a fantastic idea.
I’m going to attach the chart I will be using over the next 30 days.
But if you’re just starting out, pick any goal!! If you don’t have a FitBit that’s ok too. Just think of 5 minutes of walking as about 500 steps. Count it with minutes instead!
Here are some 500 Step/5 Minute walks free on YouTube to get you started!
I’ll be posting on my Facebook Page every day about the challenge. Feel free to hop over and post your steps or comment on how you’re doing if you want to join in!!! 300 Pounds Down Facebook Page
Also feel free to add me as a friend on FitBit if you have one. Here’s the LINK to my FitBit profile
On a sidenote….we made a homemade Slip N Slide with a tarp! Originally I had bought one from the store but it was so small that the kids wanted to try to make one themselves. Again I have to tell you that going to get the materials, hauling them outside and setting it all up is NOT something a person who is over 400 pounds would have an easy time doing. Every time I am able to do these things, I am reminded and thankful all over again for the weight that I have lost. It motivates me to keep going. To not give up trying to reach that ultimate goal. And to remember that losing weight is about so much more than the size of clothing. It is about making our life easier. Easier to walk. To breathe. To participate fully with those we love.
