April is here and I have two challenges to tell you about that could help you to feel better and to be a part of something bigger. Bigger and better? Yes, Please!

cIIus2flMillion Mile Month is a challenge to accomplish one million miles of physical activity, as a community. It takes place every April. You can also participate in MMM community activities throughout the year. Participants can do any event or workout and log their miles in an easy online tracker. The goal is to get more than a million miles logged in April across all participants and groups. It also encourages youth to be more active which is so important!

How does it work? It is just 3 easy steps:

  1. Register (you can register at $15, $25, $50 or pay what you can >$1). All levels include participation in the M3 April challenge, exclusive discounts, entry to Milestone Prize giveaways and M3 Community membership for one year.
  2. Complete miles throughout April (run, walk, bike, yoga…whatever you like).
  3. Log your miles to help the entire MMM community reach one million miles in April. You can connect to Fitbit or Garmin or manually enter your miles.

Register and log your miles and you can:

  • Win awesome prizes (bikes, gift cards, fitness trackers and more) just for logging miles.
  • Get recognized for your hard work on the MMM Leaderboards.
  • Stay Connected year-round to become a Fitness Millionaire™.
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease and increase your overall health and wellness.
  • Be a part of a virtual fitness community.

Million Mile Month has a two major benefits. First, it helps to improve the health and wellness of participants and participating communities. In addition, Million Mile Month benefits the 501c3 nonprofit Cyberways and Waterways (CW). CW focuses on eliminating heart disease, improving the wellness of all individuals and educating children about personal health and the health of the world around them. Good stuff!

I signed up – who’s with me?

05e4da6e-0c21-46ff-bfa7-08304734d9c0You may remember that I did Coach Jenny Hadfield’s Holiday Challenge in December. Since it ended, she has continued hosting monthly challenges. I am going to join this month’s CHALLENGE: #SpringCleanEating! Coach Jenny says, “April is a transitional season and a time for renewal. It’s symbolic for starting new habits, creating new ideas, and refreshing your wellness. This month’s challenge is all about keeping it clean and simple by adding in clean foods to your daily eating habits, removing less-than-clean foods, or both!”

I like this challenge because it is flexible. It is “up to you.” Some examples:

  • Add one or more whole, clean foods to your daily regimen (seasonal veggies, smoothie, fresh juicing, cooking your own meals).
  • Focus more on removing a less-than-clean food (processed and quick) from your daily diet.
  • Combine both.

The idea is to keep it simple and challenge yourself to make healthier food choices all month long. Let’s do this one, too. OK?

      Cool 🙂 I think we can “be friends” but I am not sure how it works! We can just be friends in real life and log our miles. How are your miles going?

    I still don’t run, so I can’t do the first one, but I like the second challenge and how flexible it is! I’ve been working on implementing healthier changes! :]

  3. All those awesome deals! I keep meaning to try Fabletics. Maybe one day I will actually do it!
