ok so life has been crazy busy! Kids are all kinds of grown up and I am now a Phlebotomist and Dev is still working hard! I don't think anyone reads this so I am gonna post more for me. :) lol I am starting a new challenge which I hope will help! Its call the CAT Challenge... My cousin Cammy has this health blog and I saw it on there so I am doing it..or gonna try at least! The challege has 3 levels you can choose and I chose to do the silver one which means I need to get off this couch and get moving since it goes like this! 170 miles by August 31 and I missed one week already...oops! You can walk, run, elliptical, bike, or Swim (NEW this year) to count your miles. HOWEVER, since it is easier and faster to BIKE, you can only count 1 mile for every 3 miles you bike. So say you do 6 miles on your stationary bike, you can only count 2 of those miles toward your goal. And Swimming can be a little more time consuming and it's a full body workout, so for every 1/2 mile swam you can count it as 1 mile toward your goal. Miles only count if they are consecutively earned. So you can't just strap on your pedometer and count your steps throughout the day and say you walked 10 miles or whatever. This is a challenge! That means you can only count miles when you set out to burn fat and calories and get in shape! Im actually REALLY excited! Hopefully I can do it! wish me luck!
