Walking For Fitness

FitnessFriday logoI know things have been a little quieter around these parts this week and while I would have loved to have popped in sooner, it just wasn’t going to happen. Sam was sick this past week so with 50 States events and driving all getting done by me so she could rest, I just didn’t really have time for anything else. When we’d get to our next destination, I’d cook dinner, clean and go to bed exhausted and wake up the next morning and start it all again. I’m happy to say she’s feeling better so things should start returning to normal for me soon. :)


The even better news is that we’ve finally hit some warmer weather and spent the last couple of days walking around warm and sunny South Carolina and Florida.


Next week is jam-packed with events so I’m hoping to get ahead of the game a little bit in this next week!


I’ve been loving the warmer weather, not just because it makes RV life and chores more manageable, but because we’re able to walk around and explore all of these new places we’re visiting. Walking is a great form of exercise and stress relief. While I love an awesome, sweaty workout as much as the next person, sometimes it’s nice to just walk! There’s been a lot of that this week and I’m definitely not complaining.

My Goals for 2015

The New Year always brings about desires for change and growth, about improving ourselves to be better than we were the year before. For me this is no different. I strive everyday to be better than I was the day, week before, year before but obviously no one is perfect so I have things that I want to change and improve upon. So as we all welcome in this New Year, I want to take a moment to share a few of my personal goals and I encourage you to share some of yours with me.

By sharing our goals we can hold each other accountable, we can support one another when the times get tough, and we can offer advice on something we may have more experience or knowledge. So let’s get to it, shall we?



-Unassisted Pull-ups (I’m close but not quite there!)

-Handstand Push-ups

-Start RX’ing WODs (When I actually CAN but find a way to convince myself I can’t…)

-Run 4 races



-Personal blog and 50 States blog/project growth (I want to inspire more people to live a healthy and active lifestyle!)

-More/consistent freelance writing/social media management opportunities

-Renew my NASM CPT

-Tell more people about Advocare!

-Write a book



-Read 6 books (this was on my list last year and I did it, so I’m hoping to do it again!)

-Make a consistent yoga & meditation practice

-Be ME with no question! (Stop worrying about what other people will think of me or allowing others to dictate my behavior and decisions)

What are a few of your goals for 2015?
