It’s December 1st, which means the cold weather has officially settled in and we have a month of delicious comfort food and sweets ahead of us. This combination usually leads to a pretty unhealthy lifestyle. It’s hard for me to get to the gym when it’s freezing, and it’s even harder to resist all the good food that is passed around this time of year.
Let’s be honest, my food addiction is probably not going to change this year, but I’ve decided that my fitness is going to. I’m taking the mile-a-day challenge. It’s exactly what it sounds like. I’m going to run (at least) one mile everyday in the month of December. I know, a mile is not that far, but everyday is the challenging part.
I’m usually fairly consistent in getting to the gym, but it’s easy to slack during December when schedules get busy and pants get tighter. Running everyday will help me to remember that fitness is important all year, and not something that only happens during the summer.
I’ll be updating my 31-mile journey via Instagram! #mileaday
