Back by popular demand ... Walk / Run Challenge!
This is a quick post to catch you up on what's going on in our weight loss support is right now. We've finished the 30 day plank challenge (woo hoo) and jumped straight into the October Fitness Challenge today. This month's exercise program is a Walk / Run Challenge that is perfect for beginners and intermediate fitness levels; if you are advanced, you can still join and participate. You would just stretch this out to 3x the routine each week and it will be an awesome workout for you, too. The goal of the October Fitness Challenge is to jump start us into either losing weight or maintaining our Skinny Fiber Weight Loss over the winter months. We want to be fit and fabulous NOT fat and flabby coming into the 2015 New Year, so each month we will have a new workout goal and you can participate whether doing the Skinny Fiber Challenge or not.
NOTE: I actually started a new 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge today, so you are welcome to get started in this Skinny Fiber program with me now - or - over the next few weeks and have that advantage to losing weight and getting healthier, too.
