Fitness Friday - Challenge #1

Challenge #1:

Walk outdoors at least 3 days a week for the month of February.

Everyone knows that walking is good for your figure. But what you may not know is that walking is also good for your mental health and your physical well-being! Walking outdoors has been shown to relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression (something easy to get caught up in during these long winter months), as well as to reduce the risk of heart attack, diabetes, colon cancer, and bone fractures in later years. Walking seems like a pretty small task with a lot of rewards!

This challenge is mostly for me to get in shape, but I encourage you to join in and do the challenge too! I'll post an update next week to let you know how I'm doing.
