I would like you to meet Maggie C from, What Rhymes with Stanza? She has taken the 90 day Wild Rider Fitness Challenge. Maggie has written a wonderful outdoor photo essay about the pet-ometer and how it keeps her going. I can see where it is an excellent motivator. I think you’ll really enjoy this. It may motivate you too.
Take it away Maggie C!
Thank you, Susie, for hosting the Wild Rider Fitness Challenge!
I’ve actually been taking daily walks for about a year now, but the Challenge is motivating me to “step up” my game. I have difficulty sticking with any kind of healthy endeavor, it seems, so having kept at it this long is pretty amazing (or perhaps I’m just easily amazed).
The secret to maintaining my exercise regimen this past year has been my Pet-ometer. He doesn’t measure how many steps I’ve taken in a day, but he lets me know when it’s time to walk,
Once we are out the door, he keeps the walk from getting boring by employing his “interval straying” technique (a form of “leash resistance training”). One of his favorite motivational sayings is, “The best things in life are just two inches beyond the reach of the leash. So keep reaching!” Or so it would seem.
If you stick to the Pet-ometer exercise regimen, you’ll end up looking and feeling great! And so will your pet(-ometer).
Thanks for guest posting, Maggie! I’m so glad the #WRFChallenge is working for you.
If you would like to join the Wild Rider Fitness Challenge, it’s not too late. Exercise 2-3 times a week. For one of those times, exercise outdoors. If you would like to share a #WRFChallenge adventure, you can guest post for me. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can link me up from your own blog post.
This challenge is already working for Maggie and me. I think it could motivate you too!
Maggie C. is a writer, poet and humorist. I hope you’ll check out her blog here!
