WOW, February went fast! How did you do on your February fitness goals?
I kicked off my 5k walking program this month, and didn’t miss a scheduled walk!
I also got at least 3 strength workouts in each week.
Here’s what’s worked for me so far:
1. Putting it on my calendar: Each walk and workout was on my Google calendar AND my daily paper planner.
2. Make room: I tried to get creative and do walks during work meetings, or walk instead of waiting in the car for Kiddo to finish baseball stuff.
3. Sleep: I’m trying to be better about sleep hygiene –> not bringing work into the bedroom, keeping the lights dimmed after 9pm, using melatonin when needed, and using the night mode on devices after a certain time….
Another quick lunchtime 30-min workout on the books!
– Core with the Fitter App
– Shoulders and biceps
My measuring tape came today so I got my baseline measurements down since sometimes the scale lies!
The workout was followed by lunch with chicken breast and veggies I made in my new air fryer, and my tea with lemon, ginger, turmeric and cayenne. I need all the muscle repair help I can get in this decade of life, lol.
And yes I’m back with the statement running 🏃♀️ tees!

In other news… I love walking barefoot. I feel best walking on the treadmill and even lifting weights in just my socks. When I broke my foot (and later some toes), I felt the best wrapped up and in flip flops. And I wear ballet flats year round even winter. Why? Feels the most comfortable for me.
So as I start training again, I decided to take the plunge and stop shoving my feet into thick-soled running shoes that I hate and try the closest I can manage to being barefoot.
I can’t wait to take these Merrell minimalist running shoes out on the road! It has a little sole but much less than my previous running shoes.
Have you ever tried minimalist shoes? How did you like them?
