I am still struggling to find that balance that I mentioned in the last update. Jodi from Kol’s Notes told me to stop being so hard on myself for missing a few days here and there because I was still walking more regularly in January than I had been previously. She hit it right on because I had been beating myself up about it. Since I view balance as a long-term pursuit, and finding balance can mean letting go, I am at peace with where I am at right now.
All said, the month has gone pretty well.
I was inspired by all of the people who have joined us in the challenge.
I revisited a fun ap on my phone to help track our progress. I have used aps like MapMyRun before but I found a version called MapMyDogWalk. It’s “brought to you by Subaru” but it is really just another version of the MapMyWalk ap. The name makes it seem new and a lot more fun for the purpose of the challenge though. The timer helps keep me honest about how long we have been out and it’s fun to view the route you walked on a map.
I was also asked to be a contributor to the Spring Naturals Fit with Fido Facebook campaign taking place this month. I provided a fitness tip that will be posted on their Facebook page on January 30th. They have been posting tips daily throughout the month and following them has inspired me and given me extra motivation.
With only one week of the challenge left, I am going to pull it together and finish strong. I am already looking ahead to possibly participating in the Idita-walk next month.
