It was the same week that I really finally decided to do something about my own well-being. I was on track to a whole healthier life plan of eating and drinking and exercising not only for a better body, but mainly a better mind. If the sun is going to take its sweet time coming out, then I have to find another way for some energy.
It was perfect timing, then, that I was invited to join and write about the BeeWell Miles campaign. I was sent this nifty pedometer in the mail by Bumble Bee Foods and for each mile I log onto BeeWellMiles.com, 15 cents is donated to the Breast Cancer Network of Strength.
Now, most of my steps are from going up and down two flights of stairs while I do laundry and chase children all day and night long. But I also have committed to doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and have a goal of making it to the treadmill by the end of each day, for at least some amount of time. (Walking, not running. Me, run? That is funny.)
Today I fought it- I really really really re-heaaaallly wanted to take a nap instead of do pushups and jumping jacks but, I pressed through and am SO GLAD I DID.
I'm doing this for me, and as I log my miles, I'm personally doing this for Lynda. If you join in, I'm "AdventuresInBabywearing" in the community at BeeWellMiles. There's also other resources like healthy living experts, calorie calculators, and all that fun stuff including 15,000 prizes to be won.
I know that when I am active and focused on a healthier lifestyle, I FEEL better inside and out. I just have to get myself to that starting line. And then sticking with it. If you have any tips or suggestions or even just your good thoughts to help me stay on track, send them my way.
And please keep Lynda in your hearts and prayers. She has touched more lives than any amount of miles I could ever
