Day 21 of "2013 Ultimate Blog Challenge" : Mission Padhyatra: Bloggers' Walkathon
Remember that post I published in May - "10 Truths About Bloggers"? I made an observation in that post about how so many bloggers are dealing with weight problems.
Guess what! Earlier this month, this group of lovely female bloggers of India, who call themselves 'Indiblogeshwaris', came up with another daily challenge for us bloggers! And that "challenge" was to walk (or do any other form of exercise) for at least 30 minutes daily.
Since I'm so addicted to daily challenges these days (been doing them one after the other every month since April 2013!)... how could I not accept this challenge?
As such, I've been walking daily since the 9th of this month, with just one "off" every weekend, when I catch up on my beauty sleep. (Lack of sleep causes severe weight gain, you know!) I've missed only one day so far, due to some scheduling problem at my end, but apart from that, I've been quite regular. And in 10 days of walking, I've managed to shed one kilogram weight. Isn't that cool? :D
By the way, I love how these girls have organized this challenge. They have made a Google docs spreadsheet, which has a row for each participating member. We filled in our starting weight and target weight at the beginning. And each day has a dedicated column in which we fill in whatever exercise we did that day and for how long. At the end of every week, there is another column for updating our weight.
So it's almost like having your own exercise group, except that we are all in different parts of the world and we exercise at our own convenience, i.e. the timings, form of exercise and duration of exercise, are all as per our individual preference and stamina. Yet, we are committed as a group. The girls even share their tips, experiences and useful articles from the net. It is really motivating.
I probably won't be taking up any daily blogging challenge next month, but I sure do hope that this "Mission Padhyatra" continues indefinitely, because that's one daily challenge in the blogosphere that I WOULD like to take up every month!
By the way, I've got some really encouraging testimonials for miss_teerious, from some of you guys, and I must tell you, I'm feeling so loved and blessed!
