Well, here is another longer period challenge!
Before I moved into my current house I walked everyday, at least twice a day. I did not have a backyard, so I had to take Mia out at least that much. I have gotten rather lazy since moving into a house with a backyard over a year ago… and it is time to change that.
Mia enjoys her morning time in the backyard, often runs the fence line with the neighbor dog, and basks in the sun (when it is out and not freezing). But I know it is time to make a change, get up and moving, and make sure to take significant walks everyday. To start that, I will be walking everyday for the next 30 days for at least 20 minutes.
Today we did FOUR miles in an hour and 20 minutes. It would have been much faster if Mia did not have to pee, poop, and smell things every 2 minutes…
In addition to this goal I just want to express that I am also doing a fundraiser called Run Ranger Run.
It is a great fundraiser to help raise money for veterans. You can help veterans out too by donating to my team! Just go to CrowdRise.com choose my team “GCE – Getting Closer Everyday” and then choose me, Megan Tutin! Any donations go directly to GallantFew, a charitable organization that has the mission “To facilitate a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose.
Our team is dedicated to run/walk/bike 565 miles by the end of February (there are 10 of us!).
Thanks for any donations. Veterans and veteran families thank you!
On a side note, I ate meat Sunday… so I guess the vegetarian run is over. But I definitely feel like I felt healthier during that time so I plan on concentrating more on eating that way, just with meat every once in a while.
Today is day 7 of no alcohol, but technically only day 6 because I took Super Bowl Sunday as a cheat day. I feel more productive… I finished knitting a baby blanket for a baby shower I am going to this week, I am almost on to my second book on my list, and I think I will be finding it easier to get up and do my walks/runs!
So far this year is shaping up to be pretty great. Making this list and actually holding myself accountable to it feels good.
