31 Steps To Fit and Strong

I'm practically 2 days late in the opening of the 31 Days of 2013.  I'm just glad the linkies are still up for another 2 days so, there's still time for me to catch up.  It's not my habit to be late.  Just that sickness chose to visit me over the weekend.  And I haven't been that sick since...since...I can't remember so it must be a long time ago when I had to be on bed rest.  I'm human after all hahaha!  Anyway, I've bounced back, although still taking it easy but I'm very much alive and kicking and ready for the one month challenge.

There are 10 categories to choose from the list over at The Nesting Place.  You can find me (obviously) at the Health, Wellness, and Food category.  As I was browsing through the entries, I am giddy and excited!  More new blogs to visit, and health blogs at that!  Awesome!

Anyway, as I have said, I will be talking about 31 Steps to becoming Fit and Strong.  Very timely as I am still recovering, and hopefully be back in shape in the next few weeks.

What can you expect from the series? It's divided into 3 main sections: the Basics, the Exercises, and sustaining the Habit of becoming Fit and Strong. Some of those things, you'll find, I have already done before (that is if you are a regular visitor here). I thought it would be great to compile them in a series. There's just something about lists and being organized that gets to me.

While I'm doing this challenge as a personal endeavor, it would be great if you could tag along.  Of course, it bears repeating that I am no health expert and these are just my personal health journeys.  As such, these steps and activities are in no way meant to be taken as professional advice, and they may not be applicable for everyone.  I will be updating this post with links to the daily updates.

So, let's see how this thing goes.  For now, I got to hurry on and submit my entry before closing time.

  3. Hi Ms. Sarah! Thanks for the regular visits. Nice you're getting your own domain. It's not as simple as before but, well, there are ways of doing it. I have not yet tried to figure it out. That would be nice, the meet up. But expect that you would do most of the talking lol! I am just talkative in writing, not in actual conversation, I'm afraid :-) But as Farida is saying, a BC blogger get together would be great!
