#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in July 29

A few weeks ago, I made mention of a big walk I'll be doing in early 2017...well, now that I'll all registered, I can talk about it. In March of 2017, 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. 

I did the walk three years ago when it was held in Charleston, and what an amazing experience it is grueling and physically challenging, but also awe-inspiring at the same time.  I won't officially start my training until September when it hopefully starts to get a little more comfortable to walk outdoors, but I can at least start with the fund-raising efforts.

Update on July goals:

  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - 5/5  & 2/2
  • Strength-training exercises 3x a week - Done!
  • Yoga 2-3 times a week - at least 15 minutes - Done!
  • Eat mindfully - continue to drink a minimum of 64 oz of water, limit caffeine intake, up intake of fruits and veggies, up intake of protein at each meal, limit intake of sugar. - Some weeks this is easy, some weeks not so much. The water intake is easy, but trying to eat healthy in this heat isn't always so easy! Some days all I want is ALL THE ICE CREAM!!!
