Fitblogger Challenge: Week 2

My Fitblogger Challenge goal for last week was to walk a mile at least 5 days out of the week.  I managed to do it! 
On Monday I used our outside play time at work to walk/jog the playground.  I figured 15 minutes is what it usually takes me to walk a mile so I started moving around the yard...and ended up with small children following me. (The other teachers were cracking up at me!)  I spent the last 5 minutes doing races back and forth the big grassy area with the kids!  Pooped me out!
Tuesday I ended walking to and from work...twice!  I left some things at home I needed for work.
Thursday and Friday I walked at home in place with watching t.v.
Saturday was a big blow out.  It was open house for the university I live near and we were out there for 6 hours. Yep, 6 hours of almost non-stop walking around!  It's funny how I didn't really feel it until I got home and sat down.  Then my feet started throbbing.  By evening my hips were hurting and I could barely walk.  I took some Advil and went to bed.  Thank goodness I recovered by today. The feet are still a little sore but most of the pain in my hips is gone.

The plan is to keep up with each of the past weeks goals and add a new one.  So, I'll keep eating my salad each day and walking one mile 5 days each week.

My goal for next week:  Drink 64 oz. of water each day.  I have a 16 oz. Flylady water bottle.  I'll put on 4 of the different colored straps that come with the bottle so it will help me keep track of how many bottles I've had.
Wish me luck!  I like water...but, it's always been a struggle to drink enough unless it's really hot...


  1. Great job you did with all that walking!!!

    I also have a hard time getting enough water. I'm continuously working on it.

    Good luck!

  2. Wow, good for you! My feet ache just reading along.

  3. I majorly struggle getting the water in. Great goal :)

  4. Congratulations on meeting your goal!
