Good morning, my dear friends!
Today is the first day of the step challenge! I just wanted to wish you all luck and say a huge thank-you to those participating with me! It makes me incredibly happy to know that I have people from all corners doing this with me.
It means so much to me that some of you want to (literally!) walk this part of my journey with me. From the very beginning, that’s what I was hoping I’d get from this blog — I hoped that I’d find people who wanted to walk down this difficult path with me and who were on journeys towards a better life themselves.
It’s safe to say that I got what I wanted and then some! ❤
Remember, our goal is to increase our steps by 1,000 every day from now until Thursday, February 12, 2015.
I am striving for a minimum of 5,000 steps each day, but I’m going to try to go above and beyond that.
You can get your extra steps in by any means you’d like, and you can also track your steps by any means you’d like! No fancy equipment is necessary to participate — a free pedometer app is more than sufficient.
If, however, you do have a Fitbit, please visit me here and add me as friend so that we can keep in contact. Also, my lovely friend Brittany created this Fitbit Group for us so that it’d be a little easier for us to connect! Please join!
So far, Brittany, Harley, Jo, Amber, Bobby, and Alison have all decided to participate in this challenge with me, so please head over to their blogs, check out their stories, and give them some encouragement! 😀
If you’d also like to participate, it’s never too late to join! The more, the merrier — seriously!
Also, if you want me to share your progress with my readers here on the blog, don’t forget to send me your weekly stats sometime before Fridays at 12 PM (MST). You can visit my contact page to do that, or if you’d like to send screen shots or anything of the like, you can send attachments directly to email@example.com.
Here’s to all of us!
Good luck, and let’s get moving!
