Step into May with a New Challenge

By , SparkPeople Blogger
When it comes to building healthy habits, consistency is the key. It's a great idea to get in the habit of flexing your consistency muscle as much as possible, across as many parts of your life as you can. When you're consistent in one area of your life, it makes it even easier to start and stick with other, bigger challenges. An easy way to do this is to commit to a small, doable act every day that will get your healthy momentum going. That's why we're starting a month-long challenge that's possible for almost everyone: "A Mile a Day in May"! Simply walk, run, bike, or do any other sort of activity to accumulate at least one mile every day in May on top of your regular daily physical activity. You can do your mile in small bursts or all at once; however you get it done is up to you. The important thing is that you do it! 

Every day in MayTweetPin, +1 or comment on our Facebook page using the hashtag #MayMiles to stay accountable and let us know how you're doing. Then, we'll serve up tips and encouragement to keep you headed in the right direction! We will also be posting daily on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ to check in with your progress using the same #MayMiles hashtag. If you don't use social mediastart a SparkStreak and update your SparkPage status or blog every day to keep yourself accountable! 

There's no better time than RIGHT NOW to start being more consistent with your fitness. Are you up to log some miles in May with us? Let's do this!

Psst! Don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook and follow us on TwitterPinterest, and Google+  for daily tips and encouragement!

I'm in also. I like that the mile can be done by walking, equipment, etc, as I really do not like to run!! Also, I recently learned that the distance to my library is exactly one mile, and I often walk there in nice weather. I am going to use this challenge to get back to my exercise routine. Report
