#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in January 20


It was a great week!!! I pulled out one of my Leslie Sansane walking DVD's and ended up doing them 3X's - I forgot what a great overall workout they are!!! I think I am going to do them on the days I am not doing my distance walks leading up to the BIG walk I'm doing in March - which is coming up in 40 days!!! EEK ;) I'm ready, I think, but I still have some training to do and I definitely have some major fundraising to least favorite part of this walk, but the most important part. If you want to support me, the link is below - any amount is most appreciated!

January Goals:
  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - met
  • 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 - changed this  up a little this week, but ok with that - did Leslie Sansone walks at home, 2 mile walks!
  • Distance walks (distances will vary, try to do 2 days, back-to-back ) - did 2 10 mile walks this week!
  • Practice yoga - did 2 sessions at home :)

***In March, I'll be doing the CHALLENGE WALK MS in Savannah, GA.
It is a three-day, 50-mile walk that tests your strength and your spirit, and makes an extraordinary difference in the lives of people with MS and their families.
