Technically this is day 2 of a new month but new challenges can start any time. I found a group of people I know also people I didn’t know until now who all have some form of a fitbit. We have hooked up via the fitbit website and now we do weekend warrior challenges as well as, work week hustle challenges. It is a fun, friendly way to stay on track with our steps. Especially since now I’m spending so much time on my yoga mat and trying to work and keep a house-hold it is hard to get as many steps as I was before. Being invited to these type of challenges is really fun. We started our weekend warriors challenge Saturday at midnight and it will run until tonight at midnight. We then have a work week hustle which will start midnight Monday morning and run until midnight Friday night. No, I am not walking at midnight and won’t start my steps until 4am but because my night ends before many other people they are still up getting their steps in after I have gone to bed so I try to get as many steps in as I can while I am up and about.
During our golf season it was easy to rake in the steps without much effort at all. Today in Maine it is actually snowing for the first time this season and it keeps us inside. I am making sure to keep active but I also had 3 hours on my mat so while I’m doing my yoga I am not adding up any steps. Good thing I’m not that competitive and this is all just friendly competition. The goal is to try and stay in the 15k per day in order to keep up with the group so my mind is just keeping focused on my yoga and staying active as much as possible when I’m not on my mat. As I type this I’m on my feet moving around. I don’t know if I will win the weekend warriors challenge but I’m giving it my best shot.
