Walk with Me

I want you to walk with me. Not on some proverbial emotional path, but literally walk with me.

About a year ago, I got really interested in fitness. Since I battle the beast that is Crohn’s disease, sometimes exercise isn’t a choice. Some days I just simply–well–can’t. But I’ve been using every available ounce of energy to workout at least three times a week to the best of my physical ability. I’m trying to use exercise and food choices as medicine in hopes of fighting back against my health issues.

It’s not about weight. I’ve never had a weight struggle. It’s about health and strength and building some fierce muscle. And I’ve developed some. Muscle, that is. It’s immensely satisfying when you see and feel your body change as the result of some healthy choices you’ve made.

In addition to what I’m already doing in my attempts to reach better fitness and health levels, I’m joining the Walk It Off Now Challenge and I really want to encourage you to join me!

What’s she talking about?” you’re wondering. Let me answer some questions for you that you’re probably pondering in your head right now.

What’s this going to cost me? Nothing. It’s really free. The 6-week challenge is absolutely FREE.  If you sign up, you will get the full 6-week plan and video emails to keep you motivated and on track. You do have the option to upgrade to the annual membership with additional benefits including daily interaction with the program’s creator Wendi Pett. The upgrade is a pretty nice deal, only $47 . But it’s offered for a short time only so if you’re considering that, do it as soon as you can. But again, it’s free if you choose it to be. (See bottom of post for a fun detail).

How do I know this is legit?  Great question. If you’re going to spend you’re time and potentially money, you want to know it’s a worthy investment. Here are a couple of testimonials from folks who’ve been through the program:

    This sounds wonderful! I’m a long time race walker who fell off the bandwagon due to injuries. I’m now going through chemotherapy and trying to get active again through regular brisk walking. Although weight is not an issue for me, getting stronger and lowering my cholesterol are I mportant to me. I would love to participate in this program!

      Wendy, I’ll bet race walking was exciting! I’m not a runner (at all) so this walking challenge is right up my alley. I’ll continue to pray for your healing!

    Melanie, this comes at the best time. The summer schedule makes it harder to get to the gym. It’s so hard to drag myself and all three kids to the gym. I’m doing it today! Thanks for the motivation!!

    I am going to check this out right now. I have been struggling to start an exercise program so maybe this is it!

      Brittany, I think it will be great, especially with the constant encouragement and community. I need that accountability and I think most of us do.

    Hey Melanie

    I would like to join this program. I have seen many people in my life who doesn’t care for their health. But as we know very well “Health is Wealth” so we should care about it.

      Hi Diana! I’m sorry I didn’t get back with you sooner. The holiday and family busyness kept me occupied. 🙂 It’s a great program! I hope you’ve been able to check it out. If not, we could be accountability partners for getting our daily walks in!
