May Challenge – 100 Miles – Join Me!

May 2, 2016

Life Stuff

First of all, absolutely everything from my garage sale is gone and I am ecstatic! My dad came over for coffee and a chat during the sale on Saturday. Knowing I didn’t want any stuff left after the sale, he offered to take it all to his house for his sale in a few weeks. I could not have loaded up his truck any quicker! Hallelujah!

And….Mike has has been shopping for a “Fun Car” to take for a drive with the top down and play with on the weekends. You know, in all of his spare time. Okay, that’s kind of a joke because the guy works a lot of hours, but hopefully now that he has a new toy, he will take a little more time off to play, and I will join him. Yay! After a lot of shopping and looking and test driving, he found one yesterday. And….thanks to ME, there is room to park it in the third car garage. The guy is giddy, and that makes me happy.

Challenge and a Give Away!

It’s time for a challenge and I would love for you to join me!

I’m changing things up a bit on this 100 Mile Walking Challenge. I’d like for those of you that are interested in walking 100 miles in the month of May to join me! I’m going to do a “Give a Way” at the end of the challenge.

I started my challenge today with 2 miles, and i apologize for the late post, but it’s a 31 day month, so you’ve got plenty of time!

I found this great little belt to wear while working out, and I think you should have one too! It has openings all the way around it, a hook for your keys, and your phone will fit into it!

(This is not a sponsored post.)


I’ve worn it a few times now, and I really like mine.



You step into it, just like pants, and pull it up.



This opening (there are several openings all the way around the belt) stretches wide enough for you to put your phone in, then you slide your phone (or whatever you want to carry with you) in towards the words Flip Belt, and your belongings will not fall out.



I like mine enough, that I’d like for you to have one too!

I’ve never included my readers in a challenge or done any kind of a Give a Way before, so I’m looking forward to some enthusiastic participation!

I’m leaving Monday for a short Girl’s Trip. I’ll be back to blogging on Thursday morning!

    Good review! Thanks for all the great info. Maybe I need to look into this now.

    Thanks Ronda! Enjoy your miles today!!




  2. Oh, it also automatically syncs with your weight watchers app and downloads your activity points

  3. I purchased the newest Fitbit called the “Alta ” just two weeks ago. I absolutely love it! As far as I can tell the only thing it does not do that the most expensive ones do is monitor heart rate – which is something that doesn’t really concern me. What I didn’t like about the most expensive one was it size – it’s a little bit wide shaped – as I have a very thin wrist and the Alta is thin shaped. I always joke that my wrist’s are my potential –they are the skinniest part on me! Ha ha The fit bit is very motivating, what I like most about it: 1. every hour if you have not walked it will vibrate on your wrist and remind you to get a hustle on. 2 It monitors active minutes as well as regular steps, 3. It monitors your sleep which I had never thought much about before but now I find interesting 4 if your smart phone is close by it will also show you your text messages and who’s calling on your phone, on your wrist! 5 Maybe the best part is, you can have friends you can have competitions with and keep tabs on! 6 also vibrates and has “a party on your wrist”when you reach 10,000 steps each day! Probably the thing it does most for me is as I get ready to go to bed and I haven’t quite made my goa I will look down and see I only have a few more steps to take and I’ll actually get up and walk around the block to meet My goal. Also I use it as my watch, it shows the time a day and date! In short, actually that was “a long”, …I love it! Ronda

    Now I might get a “treat” at the end of the 100 mile walk. Lol

  9. I’m in for the challenge. They belt looks really cool! I have been toying around with the idea of buying something like this for my keys when I run or walk!
