At the beginning of March, I joined FitFluential’s challenge to run/walk 100 miles in March. And while I kept my schedule of going to the Y a couple of times a week to run, I also purchased a pedometer to keep track of my daily steps. I never knew exactly how active I was during the day. It was definitively a surprise to see my daily steps anywhere between 2 and 3 miles! While I had many blunders with my Sportline pedometer during the challenge, I’m pleased to announce that I reached my goal of 100 miles in March! Now that the challenge is over, I’m wishing I had a Jawbone or a FitBit to keep better track.
As I mentioned before, I’d like to participate in some trail races this year and I intend to get serious about my training just as soon as this nagging cough goes away! Now that the #FFMarchMiles challenge is over, let me introduce a fun April Instagram challenge by the Tampa Bay Bloggers.
All you have to day is take a daily picture following the daily prompts and tag it with #AprilPics and #TBB. No prizes this time, just a fun way to meet and follow new peeps!
Another fun thing going on in April is the Ultimate Blog Party starting April 4 – 11. The #UBP14 is sponsored by the wonderful ladies at 5 Minutes for Mom. This will be my first time participating in Ultimate Blog Party. Even if you don’t have a blog you can still participate by meeting and visiting new blogs.
Do you have a FitBit or Jawbone? How do you like it?
Do you have an Instagram account? Do you participate in photochallenges?
