A Feature and A Workout


I'm so incredibly excited! My pumpkins and candy corn were featured on Someday Crafts. There a so many other wonderful pumpkin projects showcased. I can't wait to try some out. If you havne't been to this blog, please stop over. You'll find soooo many great ideas of things to make and do.


The beginning of September marked a change for me. I wanted to start getting back into counting points for Weight Watchers and I definatly wanted to increase my exercise. I had been Shredding quiet regularly at the beginning of the year but injured my knee as I moved into Phase 2 of the Shred with Jillian Michaels. When I did that, I basically stopped exercising. So, I'm not trying to get back into the swing of things.

I read a blog called Shopping Is My Cardio and decided to sign up for their September challenge. The challenge was to exercise - or move - for at least 20 minutes a day. I took them up on it. We need to keep a calendar of our progress. Since the computers in my life are down I was not able to post my calendar weekly. I had been keeping track of things in my day planner but since each day has it's own page, I couldn't photograph each page individually. I threw this calendar together on the fly.

So today here is my month of September calendar. As you can see, I'm still trying to get into the swing of things. Some days I'm just barely hitting over that 20 minute mark. But the important thing is, I'm moving, right? Today I danced with my neice to one of her Nickelodeon dancing shows, did some stretching, and crunches. I'm going shopping with my Mom and sister later so I'll be doing some walking. Nothing super major but again, the point is to move, right?

Here is my calendar:

Way to go! My family started this type of challenge back in January. We get a point for each day we do 20 or more minutes of exercise and bonus points if we do more than 5 days a week. It has really helped me to become more active and make it a part of my lifestyle. Now, if only you and I were neighbors so we could get out for our walks together!

Just keep moving.. you'll find it comes off as you do more each day. I know how hard it is.. but try new things and just dont' give up or stop.. do something for 30 days and it becomes a habit.. you can do it!!
