Join me in a new challenge...it's All About You.


I get really great comments from you guys when I post about running. It really helps to keep me motivated. I run pretty often, but I can very easily be swayed from a run if something comes up.....like playing with Luke, feeling tired, or a new episode of the Real Houeswives on Bravo TV.....

Some of the comments are about how you wish you could run, but can't because of an injury, or not having time in your day. Theta Mom has challenged her readers to find one hour per week to take a time out and do something for themselves. I want to challenge you to do something for yourself too, become active. We know how important exercise is for our overall well being, and the great thing is, you can do it alone, or as a family. Go for a walk, bike ride, play Wii, or run!!! This isn't going to be a strict challenge, where you have to do it every day, just when you can, but you have to do something at least once a week.

I really think this could be fun, and it's a great time of year to do it, since school is starting, and we're getting back on schedule. I want us feeling good in time for the holiday season, so this challenge will begin next Friday, September 4, and end Friday October 30.

If you would like to participate, write a comment, or email me (mesbaker@gmail.com). Let me know what your plan is (run, walk) and the number of times a week you can commit to. Each week you'll have to tell me how you did, and I'll post the results along with your blog link. Seriously, what do you have to lose?
If you look closely in the photo, Luke is pointing at you, asking you what your challenge is......

I'm going to have to think about what to do. I kinda want to do this boot camp that meets in Central Park, but I have to see if I can swing it with Nicole coming home from work at a certain time so I can make it. One late meeting and I am screwed! Maybe I could commit to doing the push up challenge....
