lilbits we had a walking challenge here before but unfortunately most of the walkers went MIA.

I am happy to do a walking challenge. I actually run (A LITTLE BIT) but haven't for several months for health reasons. In particular right now I am nursing a back problem. So I would love to have others to walk with. The weather is to improve here also.

How we did it before was have a total goal for the week. I think the last walking goal I had was 12k for the week. Sometimes I had to do most of it on Sundays if my week was too busy lol. Everyone has their own challenges as to what will make it hard to walk but mine is normally time. What's yours?

Finishing up the week:

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
  • At least 2000ml water per day: 2000, 2000, 2000, 2000, 2000, 2000, 2000
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories: 1319, 1349, 1372, 1392, 1383, 1379, 1414
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 903, 876, 886, 907, 958, 989, 979
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 23, 23, 22, 21, 22, 19, 20
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: M=Tai Chi/Yoga, T=Taiko Class, W=Tai Chi, Th=Yoga Class, F=nothing, Sa=Tai Chi, Su=Tai Chi ---- (6/4) Goal exceeded!
  • Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

My 2nd solid blue week in a row. The goals seem to be realistic; with the exception of the water, it hasn't been particularly difficult to achieve them. Publishing the goals here, and knowing that I'd have to be accountable for them here, is most definitely helpful in keeping me on track and honest. And I'm seeing results! Maybe not as fast or dramatic as other people, but results nonetheless. Seems reasonable to me to stick with this plan (I'm still going to tweak the water part, though ).

Default I am going to start at 5K for the week

My biggest problem is just getting off my butt. My hobby is quilting so I sit way too much. Today is going to be beautiful so I will make time to walk outside. I will let you know how I did later today.

Epixi, congrats on another blue week. You have come a long way and with your determination you will make it to your goal.
