WIN a Quilt! Challenge

Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters and Fitness Buffs!

How are YOU today?  Did YOU have a good week?

More fruits and veggies anyone?

A few long walks?

Did you reward yourself with a little quilting time?  Or perhaps you bought yourself a few Fat Quarters (I did!)…

Last week’s challenge was to keep up the moving goals… and add a nutrition goal.

I think I jinxed myself by saying I didn’t have a sweet tooth!  It seemed that’s all I craved this week.  Fortunately, I found mangoes were the perfect solution…(though I still haven’t found a good way to cut them– found myself gnawing at the pith--not dignified!)

To enter the challenge…

Tell us what worked for you or what didn’t work for you this week.

Share a link or a story or…just tell us what you are doing to become a #FitQuilter!

What worked for me–12,000 steps every day!

What didn’t…Fast food dinners twice this week! (not worth it!)

What about YOU?  We’d love to hear!

10,000 Steps-A Prairie Walk

Because quilting is a rather sedentary sport, I have to make a conscious effort to schedule exercise into my day.    I try to mix it up: Pilates, kettlebells, rowing.      In addition, I have been trying to take 10,000 steps a day.     This is no easy feat (feet?).  I purchased a pedometer-and it is the first accurate one I have ever owned.     In order to accomplish the 5 mile per day mark, I usually need to take a walk outside.  Of course, this makes my dogs and my camera -very happy!

Now it’s your turn…lace up those gym shoes and go for a jaunt…

…only 9999 more steps to go!
