400 Mile Fitness Challenge 2011 – Week 1

I’ve decided to join Ellie and her friends in this wonderful challenge. 

I don’t need to lose weight – but, I am supposed to exercise because I have diabeties.  And, to tell you the truth I haven’t been doing too well with that part.  I take my medicine, eat well (with a few slips here and there – but in moderation), and test my sugar every day…but exercise seemed to fall by the wayside…

So, I’m fixing that…

Week 1 – 

Thursday – 1/6  –  Rode Stationary Bike for 15 min = 1 mile

Total for Week 1 = 1 mile

It’s a start!!!

    congratulations for taking on such a challenge! i really need to do something like that too; it’s so tempting to remain sedentary when knitting, quilting, or other things call your name. maybe you’ll inspire even me. 🙂

    Good idea! I really need to do more exercise. I spend most of my day in the studio.

    Sara good for you! Probably most of us would agree we need more exercise, but not everyone does something about it. I know you’ll do great.
