30 Miles in 30 Days

So I'm going on vacation in a few months and let's just say I am no where close to feeling ready to be in a bathing suit on the beach. And that's putting it lightly. I have really struggled to get into any type of workout routine and it's definitely beginning to show. My friend Amy and I have been trying to motivate each other via text/snapchat/etc which I am so thankful for. It's always easier to get going when you know someone else is gonna' check in on you ;)

We thought some of you might want to join us for some additional motivation too, especially with the warmer weather and shorts/swim season coming quickly. It's nothing crazy or drastic but it's just a reminder to keep moving. We're doing a 30 Miles in 30 Days challenge. Personally I'm going to be trying to run those 30 miles- but it can be any form of exercise. Running, walking, biking, swimming- whatever your goal might be! As a sidenote- I'm not counting my normal FitBit steps/miles for this challenge. I'm talking actual dedicated mileage in a workout. Make sense?

Anyway, if any of you want to join in- it's no big commitment or anything. But you can post about it anytime you want and linkup with us. The linkup will be live April 1-30 so you can add a blog post whenever you write an update. I'll try to mention/update once a week about where I stand.

PS- I was going to use a hashtag but anything remotely similar to our linkup name is already being used by a bajillion people. So hey, just tag me on IG or Twitter if you're posting about it!

  4. Shhhhhhhhh dont talk about swim suit season to me yet. UGHHHHH! I feel you so hard about getting in to a fitness routine again with baby. I love this idea but I know I will never get in 30 miles in 30 days. I am lucky to fit in three 20 minute work outs a week right now. I do have plans to cut our side yard this weekend. I usually get in around 8,000 steps doing that. Does that count? LOL

  6. This is such a great idea! My husband is also trying to stay accountable so him and I can keep each other accountable. I'm currently taking a break from blogging, but I will definitely post via instagram or twitter. :)

  7. That sounds like the perfect way to get motivated for swimsuit season! I'm right there with you about not feeling remotely ready at all!

  8. I love this idea. It's something I could get behind. I wonder if I could pull it off!

  11. Yesss! I'm trying to increase my activity. I'm doing a 40 in 40 now - 40 minutes of activity a day for 40 days of Lent with one day off a week. I need to keep that going.

  12. Fun! I definitely think this will help me get walking more in addition to regular work outs!

  15. I love this! I am running my first 5K on 4/29 and may possibly sign up for one on 4/15 to have a practice one so I need to get onto my running. I do spin about once a week and we walk the dog often, but I need some running!

  16. I'm with you guys!!! I haven't been consistent these days and I think this will help me get into the mindset that it doesn't have to be a lot of miles each day but just to do something!
