The Woman Challenge

This weekend I was reading one of my favorite magazines, Health, when I came across a small blurb for The Woman Challenge.

A program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, The Woman Challenge encourages women across the country to enlist in an eight week health challenge pledging to get at least 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week.  An on-line activity tracker monitors your progress as well as gives you news and exercise tips.

I made my pledge this past Sunday with a vigorous walk in the a.m. and bike ride in the p.m. even though the official kick off isn't until May 10th.  Warming up a week before can only help!

Occasionally I will post progress, photos and my imPRession of how this challenge is going. Want to join my virtual team?  I'd love it if you'd join me and post comments along the way. You can see the columbus imPRessions team profile here.
