July 9: Day 23 of the 10+ Minute Fitness Challenge
Sunday, July 10, 2011
Note: I will blog much more about this, but I have re-started my goal to see if I can do 1,000 days in a row of at least 10 minutes of fitness. As you can see from the title of this blog, today is Day 23. I will also try to blog as many days as possible. One of my goals is to motivate as many people as possible around America and the world to reach their goals using health and fitness combined with goal setting as a springboard to reach goals in all areas of life. Working together we can make an enormous impact. As I say, "Your daily actions and words impact more people than you realize!"
I did 58 fitness minutes today – woohoo!
My fitness highlight today was swimming laps with my boys hanging onto my back. They LOVE this because it feels like they are surfing. My oldest even tries to stand on my back while I'm swimming. Needless to say, this is a really challenging exercise! I love this one because it's both a challenge physically and something memorable for my boys.
Here's one of my favorite member posts the past couple of days. I love the confidence members have because of all the support and tools here at SP!
I was in the hospital recently and because I am diabetic they sent a diabetic nutrition counselor to see me. While I'm sure she meant well, she came in assuming that I knew nothing about a diabetic diet or that I had a current plan and had my diabetes under control.
I quickly corrected this assumption and pulled out my laptop to show her my Sparkpeople nutrition page!! She was very impressed and made sure to write down the website before leaving.... I'm hoping she will share this as a tool for her other patients!!! I can't believe as a nutrition counselor she didn't already know about it!
