So as I said in my last post I had over a week of not eating right or exercising at all, so my 30 Day Challenge almost didn’t get done, but luckily I decided to see if I could still finish it up, and what do you know on 8/21/2014 I looked at my tracker…to discover that I had an end date of 8/22/14.
So I hit the gym for some elliptical time. I wanted to do a total of 10,000 strides all in the single day, but after an hour and five minutes my heels and ankles were killing me, so I told myself that I would return the next day to finish it out.
I did it. I got in over 10,000 Strides in between the two days
I choose to let my hiatus from healthy living strengthen my resolve to get back at it. I have truly learned through the last few weeks that eating unhealthy didn’t make me any happier, but that it can definitely make me unhealthier. I won’t always win each battle when choosing healthy over unhealthy, but each little victory is a step towards winning the war I am fighting with my past and my habits.
So with one challenge down I have to decide on the next, but I really wanna think about this one before jumping all in. My final numbers are as follows.
36,000 Elliptical Strides – 1st Challenge
Start Date: 7/23/2014
End Date: 8/22/2014
07/30/2014: 11,850 Strides which was 127 Minutes
08/06/2014: 15,470 Strides which was 185 Minutes
08/13/2014: 0 Strides
08/20/2014: 0 Strides
8/21/2014: 6238 Strides which was 65 Minutes
8/22/2014: 4728 Strides which was 45 Minutes
FINAL TOTAL on 08/22/2014:
A total of 427 minutes or 7 hours and 11 minutes on the elliptical
and A total Distance of 23.02 Miles
Though I know I could have done a lot more if I hadn’t been on my hiatus from healthy living…I am extremely proud that I was able to finish this challenge out and how far I pushed myself.
Until the next time remember that the universe is in my thoughts there by so are you.
