Taking Steps to BeeWell and Help the Breast Cancer Network of Strength

Being held accountable and having that motivation to walk are two things I need. BeeWell Miles will be giving me both. By participating in the BeeWell Miles campaign, I’ll be walking, and for the steps I take, they will donate $.15 (per mile logged between April 1 and October 31, 2009) to the Breast Cancer Network of Strength! Now THAT is awesome isn’t it? Sometimes, it’s just not about you, you know? Sometimes you’ve got to take a little time and put forth a little effort for someone else and while this walking will help me move forward in my weight loss goals, it will make me even more proud to be helping such a wonderful cause. A cause that provides peer support for those diagnosed with breast cancer.

I have already begun my treadmill workouts so this will fit right in with that and at the BeeWell website, you can actually log your miles, calories, and even your meals. I’ll be wearing a pedometer to keep track of my steps and encourage you to do the same. The website is jam packed with information to help you succeed in beeing well. From getting valuable information from healthy living experts to healthy eating to having a community forum so that you can share your experiences, ask for help, or get a little support.

MY GOALS

When you  sign up, you can put what your goals are.  I will strive to walk 2 miles, 3 times a week.  It’s not much but I’m new at walking like this so I feel it’s appropriate for me.  I will log my miles to keep track, to help money get donated towards the cause and because  each day you log miles or game codes from pink label Bumble Bee cans,  you could instantly win one of 15,000 prizes!

My goal is lose weight, not just for vanity issues but also to make sure I’m here long enough to see  and run around with my future grandchildren.

With the beautiful weather around the corner, it would be a great time to start walking, even if it’s just around the block!  My kids are joining in with me and I will be reporting back to you how I’m doing so keep checking back and maybe we can unite to be healthier and make a difference!

YOUR GOALS

So what about you?  Would you be willing to partake in the BeeWell Miles campaign by taking steps for a cause?  What steps are you taking to BeeWell and live better?

    This is great! My BFF is recovering from Breast Cancer and is in the process of reconstructive surgery, what a trooper, anyhow I am going to spread this amongst my friends and do it! Thanks for the tip! The site below is my BFF and her struggle with this disease. She is amazing and wants to show everyone how real it is.

    So proud of the changes you’re making, and love this cause. Someone special I know was just diagnosed with breast cancer, so this is really near and dear to my heart.

    Wow Lori – so many great factors are at play here! Congrats on making the decision to better yourself and helping others at the same time. I’m so happy for you and will be here to support your efforts every “step” of the way. I’m going to check out that website, it sounds *very* helpful too. I love that you can keep track of calories, meals, excercise — what a great tool to help on the path to getting healthy!

    PS — you look fab in pink! ;-)

    Such a great cause and Kudos to you for getting involved and being part of it. Makes me want to uncover my treadmill (clothes) and get involved too. This just may have motivated me to finally do it.
    fingers crossed ;)

    Good for you! Sounds like you’re on the road to taking care of yourself and helping a good cause in the process! Walking has done wonders for me and you are the one who inspired me to get started last year! I can’t walk on a treadmill though – for some reason my feet need to hit my dirt road every morning. I even bought running shoes last week and am adding that to my walking! You go girl! I’m cheering you on!
