It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

12K Fitness Challenge

Fitness Challenge

Hosted by Sheila of Book Journey at Team Kickin It

So what is the 12K challenge? It is a fitness challenge that I believe *almost anyone can do no matter your age, weight, or fitness level. Together I am asking those of you who join me to participate in a wellness program that will hopefully as a group lead us to healthier habits for our bodies, better shape, and a better fitness level.

Each month – your basic goal will be to take it 1K at a time. A 1K is 5/8 of a mile. Each month we will add to that another K. This is your basic goal in this challenge – you can walk it, run it, tread mill it, elliptical it, whatever works for you. The goal is by the end of each month to have completed the challenge and by January 2014, be able to do a 12K which is 7.46 miles.

You know those people who are always doing 5k’s and you are thinking wow! That is amazing! They are actually running/walking 3.2 miles. When you break it down… it really is doable.

signed up in January and have done nothing. NOTHING. I even forgot all about it. :-(  So, what happens now? Spend June working up to 6k? Yikes! Oh, a 5k is 3.1 miles. And I've done them. Too bad I'm starting from scratch.

Will link when month goes live
