Before I get to the fun things coming up this week, I want to share how fantastic I feel after nearly a month of concerted effort to up my fitness game. I have surpassed my goal of 10,000 steps a day. I even took over 18,000 steps on Friday! I am enjoying running, just as I did when I took it up last year. Of course I'm kicking myself at bit for stopping in September, but I'm not looking back. I get lots of tips and encouragement from my fitness buddies at #FitCEOs and WorkOut Wednesdays. Join us!
My increased level of fitness feels especially good after reading reports last week from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) showing that women who gain the fewest pounds as they age averaged approximately 60 minutes a day of moderately intense exercise. This links to an abstract of the study at JAMA's website. This links to a video news report. Thanks to everyone who is on this journey with me.
