I sit here writing this post from a resort after spending two days walking until my feet became sore. It is nice to have them up in bed with my laptop a top my lap. What is great about the past two days is my walking more then 8 hours a day I plan on logging as a workout in the MapMyFitness Quaker Challenge.
I only have a few more days to complete my pledged 15 workouts but I have faith I will have them all done by the end of the Challenge. The MapMyFitness Challenge was a fun way to push myself to workout when I would rather sit in front of the television and rest.
I may not be losing weight at lightening speed but with a steady workout schedule and watching what I eat I’m hoping to take off and keep off my weight by the end of 2012. Having small challenges like this just makes things more interesting.
What I loved best about the challenge was the ability to sync my Fitbit account with my MapMyFitness Quaker Challenge account so I didn’t have to spend time logging in my workouts in another system. This also helped me make sure I logged my activities on my Fitbit as well.
The challenge was easy enough to complete in a month, easy to track your progress, and fun to compete against friends. I highly recommend taking a look around the MapMyFitness Quaker Challenge to help motivate yourself to get up and be active.
February is National Heart Health month. Even if it’s only 5 more minutes a day, what extra step will you take to stay fit?
