Why are you taking the Walk The Walk Challenge?
Earlier this summer, I had a nasty fall and banged up my leg enough to be in a wheelchair for a little while. During this six-week healing period, not only could I not work out and walk, I was eating comfort food from friends, neighbors and relatives. Can you just imagine being laid up with nothing to do but watch Jersey Shore and eat tons of lasagna, pizza, hamburgers and cake? I need to get this extra 10 lbs off of me stat! (Here’s where I should admit that I was already a good 20 lbs. overweight before the fall). I also need to get fit and healthy before I go to Burundi, Africa in March of 2012. I don’t want to be out of breath and craving Diet Coke and Nachos while I’m on a mission trip.
What do you hope to get out of it?
I hope to find my strength and focus again. The injury really messed with my head and my attitude. I come from a family of sloths and have never been an athlete, so a walking competition is right up my alley! I also hope to encourage other
What’s your strategy to win?
I’m not sure I’ll win. Can I just have a goal of not coming in last place? My strategy will be to not sit down until the end of the evening!
What’s your advice for people trying to get more active?
Can I answer this on September 30th when I feel like I’ll have better advice then? I’ll be reading my other competitor’s answers for this question, and getting their secrets, starting NOW!
Why should followers donate to NoFizzUSA and pledge to support you during the event?
Because they love me and this is a great cause!
