After publishing my February 2014 health goals, I found that Money Saving Mom and the Geeky Bloggers Book Blog were hosting fitness challenges with weekly check-ins to help keep us accountable and motivated. They each have linkies where we can post our goals and updates to support one another in achieving our exercise goals…one small victory at a time!
Crystal from Money Saving Mom is challenging us to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables this month in her 12 Months to a Healthier You challenge.
Update: I’m mixing it up this week by adding in some fruit salad. This salad I made of mango, blueberries, blackberries and clementine pieces drizzled with honey and lime juice was really tasty. Other than that, I was able to eat more salads for lunch or dinner and snacked on apple slices with peanut butter today. Slowly but surely, I’m sneaking extra fruit and veggies into my diet.
Felicia from The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog is continuing to host her Book Blog Walkers challenging us to walk (or do some form of exercise) for 30 minutes a day. My goal is to exercise 4-5 times a week.
Feb 8: none
Feb 9: none
Feb 10: Stationary bike for 45 minutes, burned 373 calories, 6.8 miles
Feb 11: Stationary bike for 30 minutes, burned 305 calories, 5.8 miles
Feb 12: It was a snow day, so we played our favorite indoor game, push back the kitchen table and chase kids around downstairs.
Feb 13: Snow day #2, more chasing plus dusting/vacuuming. Too bad I can’t track calories but vacuuming is always a workout for me.
Feb 14: Snow day #3, stationary bike for 30 minutes, burned 342 calories, 6.6 miles
