#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in December 2

I had a great week, if I do say so myself, and it feels so good to be back to exercising regularly!!! I just focused on getting back to where I was before I got sick and while I will continue to do that, I will also start to do one or two distance walks. The big walk is 3 months and will be here before I know it!!! I also need to get serious about fundraising for the walk...something I don't love doing, but need to do! If you're interested in supporting me in this walk - it's for MS - please see the link to my fundraising page below. Any help is much appreciated :)

December Goals:

  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - 5/5, 1/2
  • 30 minutes of active walking every day, M-F - met
  • Eat mindfully/eat enough (esp. in important while training!) - met
My training plan for the Challenge Walk MS I'll be doing in March of 2017:

  • 4 miles, 2 days a week, interval training - Met
  • Saturday & Sunday: Distance walks (distances will vary) - will start this week, though the days might vary, just need to be back-to-back days
  • Try to attend one yoga class a week- will start this week
