@loloyoyo26 how did you get on today?I hit 12,015 steps! So now I’m plopped down on the couch with a hot cocoa.
Re: April Healthy Habits
Now that the weather is nicer, I've been going for neighbourhood walks after the kids go to bed. It feels really good to move and get fresh air. I think I want to give myself a step challenge for April. Does anyone want to join me?
@pickle-chips I've heard great things about the Calm app. I'll have to check it out. Also, yay for therapy!
what an awesome goal @surrenderdorothy! I hope you make it and good luck!
@dancingnarwhal, when is your race?
But if there was a specific step goal you had in mind, we could also just work towards making each of our own goals and check back in here!
@surrenderdorothy 443! You’re so close. You’ve got this!

Pre-baby, I was working out 4-5 times a week...and then stopped cold turkey. And started eating ALL the things. DH and I have already decided that after Easter weekend, we're getting back to our clean eating and exercising routines. We've both become pretty gluttonous lately. Between multiple bouts of COVID in our house, and some other more heavy stuff, eating/being lazy have become our coping mechanisms. I'm ready to nip that!
I'm also finding the accountability really helpful. On Wednesday, I only had 4,000 steps by the time bedtime was done and I was so tempted to just crash into bed myself. But I made myself get out for a long walk with an audiobook and hit my goal! It was a beautiful evening, so it was really nice to get out and enjoy it rather than laying in bed scrolling my phone mindlessly.
I am also finding I'm much more conscious of getting up to move and taking breaks. Go team!!
Do you go to yoga classes? Wing it? Or use videos? Any good prenatal yoga recs?
I saw your check in post- sending you love and light still, since I still hadn’t posted this before responding there.
