Sharing a Giveaway for TWO FitBit Flex

I was so excited when I saw this giveaway  for two Fitbit Flex on Iowa Girl Eats (one of my favorite blogs from a fellow Iowan) and so I completed every entry opportunity.

And since I love you all, I’m letting you know—just in case you don’t follow IGE (in which case you should get over there and check it out).

FYI: The entries are mostly through follows on Pinterest.

Good luck…but I hope I win! Winking smile

Walking my way to a 5K

I contemplated doing the Couch to 5K program for beginning runners, but I decided I would start small and work my way there since I’m not quite at that fitness level yet.

I was happy to find Spark People’s 5K Your Way Walking Training Program.

There is a handy printable calendar that I printed out and put on my fridge. I cross out the walks as I complete them.

I started it this week and it seems perfect for me right now. I walked 20 minutes on the first day instead of 15. I have one more 1.5 mile walk to complete by EOD Sunday.

My ultimate goal is to eventually get back into running again but I’m taking it slow. I enjoy my walks and it’s much easier to be faithful about working out when you enjoy whatever it is you’re doing.

Are you following a training plan?
