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.
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!
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?
