September Challenge Make Time to Walk #MakeTime

Last week I asked if some of you would like to join in a September Challenge to Walk Every Day. If you have never exercised, this is for you. If you haven't exercised in forever, this is for you. If you sometimes or already exercise, this is for you!  Ok just so you know every day walking to the bathroom, to the fridge or even to your car to go to the store does not count! Read more below on what counts! I've been on a healthier lifestyle journey for 16 month and I would love for you to join in!

Every day in September I will post daily on my blog. Stop in and let me know that you did the challenge and what you did. Sometimes life gets in the way and you might have had to skip a day here and there. Stop in as soon as you can and let us know how you are coming along.

Sixteen months ago I just started walking at my gym. It takes 18 times to go around the track for 1 mile. I could barely walk 2 laps at a time and I would have to sit down. Now I can walk and run it over 3 miles at a time and go outside and walk/run 5+ miles at a time. So I'm here to tell you that if YOU want to feel better and if YOU want to build up endurance and if YOU want to drops some pounds and build muscle then YOU can do this. Start today. If you already exercise then please participate by walking, running or exercising every day for the month. 

Rules- nahhhhh I do not like exercise rules but here are a few guidelines.
  • Put on a pair of tennis shoes and start walking. If you can walk or run 1 mile a day then do it. IF you are just starting out like I was 16 months ago then just walk until you feel like you can't walk anymore and turn around and go back to where you starter. 
  • The next day pick up where you left off and do it again and push yourself to take a few extra steps. Each day for the entire month you will keep increasing your walking or running time.
  • Set a goal and do it. It can be steps, distance, time, etc. Just do it.
  • Listen to music or a book.
  • Get free apps for your phone to track your walking or running or steps. Use it to push and challenge you every day.
Here is a free printable calendar for you to print off and mark every day you do the challenge. Put it on the fridge to remind you daily.



Each day when I post I will share my favorite apps, exercises, music, clothes, shoes,etc that I use or have used over the past year. When you comment feel free to let me know what you use, too. If you blog about exercise or anything healthy leave those links, too. I'll visit and feature you this month. I already have some wonderful inspirational bloggers that I will be sharing this month.

So are you in? Are you joining in? By the way since I'm not big on rules, you can JOIN IN at anytime this month. So don't be discouraged if you are just finding out about this after the first. Just start where you are and move move move! Share this post and invite others to join in.
I'll be sharing this on all my social media sites so follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, TwitterGoogle Plus and LifeKraze with the hashtag #MakeTime. When you follow me let me know so that I can follow you back. IF you want to join LifeKraze it is a free app or you can use it on your computer ask me and I'll invite you.
