Inspiration post yesterday, and now an inspiration post today.
My BFFFFFFF Lena, over at ScrapButterfly is in need of some THINspiration. She has a goal of losing 100 pounds. :)
|September 7th 2012-- Visiting Lena at work :)|
I am sure Lena wont mind since we have some of the same followers. She was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Yeah, when she told me, I about fell off my ladder at work dropping boxes of mini to go products.
A while back, wow. Like 2 years ago!!! I started doing this THINspiration. It really was just me blogging about me walking in Arizona (where I was living at the time). I wore a pedometer, brought my camera, and wore my iPod and walked everyday. I would then, in return blog about how far I walked (Distance) and how many steps I took. I did not have a name for it, until Lena came up with THINspiration... and we chose to post on THURSDAYS our totals. Lena took it to another extreme. She added her weight. I on the other hand posted photos. I am not near as ballsy as Lena, but kudos to her for posting her weight.
After talking to Lena, I figured I would get back to posting my walking and junk. I mean just being more active would be great!!! I started on Friday (9-14-12.) Here is the total(s) for Friday-Sunday.
Friday: miles 5.37 steps 11418
Saturday: miles 2.31 steps 4896
Sunday: miles 1.73 steps 3639
Hours at work: 13
By the end of the month of September I would like to have put in a minimum of 25 miles in. Good enough goal right?
So this is a good start. I need to wear my pedometer at all times to get a true reading, and then add in my 60-90 minutes of extra work (exercise for fun).
Go stop by Lena's original blog post, and leave her some inspiration! She needs positive motivators in this battle she is facing.
