Walk (or run) a mile a day

Walk (or run) a mile a day with me.  I’ve been pushing my Together We Move Group really hard but I think the internet has been hiding my messages.  Streaking was not really my thing but this year I decided to give it a try.  I really needed to get back into running and a streak was exactly something I needed to give me a push.

I’ve started a group and we’ve been on a streak since October 1.  But now is the perfect time for you join in the group and walk or run a mile a day.  I just wanted to share some reasons why a run or walk streak is great!

  1.  Joining in on the streak just gives you an extra push to get just a little bit more active a day.  There isn’t a specific amount of time that is required.  You just have to commit to running or walking a dedicated mile per day.  It’s 15-20 minutes that you are investing in your health.
  2. The streak will help with time management.  We always say we don’t have time for things or we just can’t make it work.  This will teach you a little bit about prioritizing and making time for your healthy choice for yourself.  The longer you get into the streak, the harder it is to break because it’s just become a normal part of your day.
  3. This would be a great chance to get together with friends and just walk around the neighborhood.  Use the time as your social minute or take it as a more rigorous workout.  The most important thing is that you get moving so do whatever it takes to get you motivated.
  4. One mile can lead to so much more. Small steps lead to big strides.  If you can commit to one mile, then maybe later on two miles will just come easy and so on and so on.  This could be a huge turning point in your life.
  5. It won’t hurt anything for you to try it.

Everyone who has been in the group has great positive feedback.  It’s a non-judgment group of people who are supporting each other.  If you’re interested in joining, leave a comment and I’ll add you to the group.  The more the merrier.

I’m on day 161 of my streak, how far do you think you can make it in a streak?

Group fitness etiquette

Group fitness etiquette

I don’t really talk about a bunch on the blog, but I am a group fitness instructor.  I am a HUGE advocate for group fitness for many reasons. There has been a surge in group fitness over the years with Crossfit, barre, spin, yoga and many other choices. If you’ve never been to a group fitness class, here are some tips before you go. Show up to class on time. I know it’s hard sometimes and there are times when you’re just running late.  Just because you’re running late doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to get your workout on.  Access… View Post

Focus is real

Focus is real

To put this into words is hard because I have been extremely focused lately.  I’m the person you come to for motivation and inspiration to tackle your dreams and lately I’ve just been focused on chasing my own stuff.  It’s been hard for me to put it into words to post here on the blog. I’m still here.  If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve still been around. The goals I’ve set for myself aren’t visual goals.  That’s why I haven’t had much to post on Instagram (besides in my stories).  The goals I set are kind of… View Post

Tips for new runners

Tips for new runners

It’s about time for me to get back on my blogging game and provide some useful information. Right now I’m about to start my marathon training for Chicago so running is on my mind. Plus, I feel like I’m starting all over again so this is the time for me to share tips for new runners since I feel like a new runner…again. 1. Build your base. It’s easy to get super jazzed about running. It’s easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others. You have to put all of those things aside and just build your base… View Post

Forgotten Five Things Friday: Halo Top, LilleBaby and Kinedu

Happy Earth Day!  I wanted to get out and run this morning because I haven’t run in two weeks due to concentrating on returning to work at the gym.  I’m ready to get back outside and I thought Earth Day would be the best time to do it.  Well, life had other plans and I didn’t make my run.  It was just too warm for me to get out there.  I’ll try later because I’m not going to waste the day. I missed my Five Things Friday so I’m going to give them to you on Saturday today.  Normally, I… View Post
