This April will mark my first full year of being active on SP -- but before my first year is out, there's something I wanna do, something I've never actually done on Spark:
Earn a "1,000 Monthly Fitness Minutes" medal.
I know, I know, what's the big deal, right? Before I started running, back when I still thought I had to work out 6 days a week to lose weight, I coulda hit 1,000 minutes every dang month! But when I came to SP last year, I was trying out a new philosophy: "eat more, work out less" -- and so for nearly a year, I've been working out a maximum of 3 days a week.
Running 3x/week will do a lot of things: it'll help you lose 60#, it'll shrink your azz and help you drop 2-3 sizes, but let me tell you something it will *not* do -- and that's earn you a 1,000 minutes medal!
250? Yeah, no problem.
500? If my mileage is up, sure.
So, my friends, here's the deal: it's no secret that I've been struggling to get solidly back on track for the last few months with little success, but have no fear: I have decided that ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
Before my first year anniversary next month, and in order to jumpstart my efforts and get back on track, I've decided that this month, I *will* get my 1,000 minutes medal!
(Now, don't get excited -- when March is done, I'm going back to my 3x/week strategy to prevent burn-outage, but for now, peeps, THE CHALLENGE IS ON!)
