My 28 Day Challenge.

I read a friend's blog today about a 28 day challenge in May and I think it's such a great idea. It's so much harder to get into a good habit than (continue or re) start a "bad" habit. 

I've been trying to increase how much I exercise.
Nothing extreme.
I'm just trying to start a good habit. 

I'm not preparing for a marathon (please, with these boobs? Even if I was fit enough to run a marathon I'd need to duct tape the girls down). 

I'm not looking to loose X amount of pounds (although looking at pictures I have noticed an increase in weight - especially in the face. Yes I'd like to loose this weight but I'm not buying a scale. I'm not taking measurements or stressing about my BMI....see my opinion on BMI here). 

I am (usually) happy with my body. I can stand in front of a mirror naked and not criticize my thighs or my love handles. It's taken work but I'm comfortable in my skin. Doesn't mean I can't try to be a healthier (and happier) me.  

I'm going to try exercise every day for 28 days (since May has 31 days that allows for 3 days of "freebies"). Whether that's walking laps in my office building (hooray for an old building with three stories and four different stairwells allowing for loops), water aerobics in the pool, (doing my best) riding the (semi-broken) stationary bicycle in the clubhouse or speed walking around the condo complex. 

I'll try and be good about posting updates here (I think accountability is a good motivator), so feel free to send your inspirational and positive support this way. 

Here's to a new good habit. 


  1. Great idea, love. I support you!

  2. "I'm not preparing for a marathon (please, with these boobs? Even if I was fit enough to run a marathon I'd need to duct tape the girls down)." LOL Morgan!

    I wish you all the luck with your new habit! You seem to have a positive attitude about it! Which is great! I hope you're having a great day!

  3. Good luck with your 28 days! Walking is my favorite way to exercise. When I went to the gym (I quit that a while ago, like a year ago!) the challenges really helped me to stay motivated.

    As for a bra there are some decent ones out there (and I wear a 34 G so I know what I'm talking about! And my sister owns a lingerie shop with professional bra fitting). I recommend going to a real bra store and getting fitted. Maybe look for something like this: I can't find the one I have, but a professional bra shop should be super helpful. Finding one that fits is totally worth it! When I first tried one on I was like "I can't breathe!" and the worker said "good, it fits." I quickly got used to it and was able to comfortably run for the first time, ever. I feel so free in it!!

    Good luck :).
