Week 4 Update on the Commit to Fit Challenge

I’m over halfway done the SUBWAY Canada Commit to Fit Challenge with only two more weeks left. Time has flown by! I last updated you in Week 3 about my challenge of finding a friend to help me stay motivated in the challenge. I really wanted John to come out for a walk with me. He’s been complaining about being overweight and has mentioned a few times before that he would like to start walking. However, saying you want to and actually doing it are two completely different things. Over the course of the week, I planted the seed in his head about joining me for a walk. Finally on the weekend, he said he wanted to come – success!


It was great having him along and I enjoyed our chat. We talked about the houses in our neighbourhood and stopped at the local park for a few minutes. John joked about staying at the park and have me walk home get the car and go pick him up. I told him no way! Thankfully he was kidding.

Carl sent us over our challenge for Week 4 and it was an easy one for me: take your workout outdoors. I was already doing that with my walks. However, this week, we’ve had a lot of rain so it kept me away from my walks in the neighbourhood. In the end, week 4 has been a challenge surprisingly since this one should have been super simple for me to do.

Today, for example, is dark and overcast and looks like it will rain any second. I know I shouldn’t sit inside and wait for “the right moment” to begin because who can predict weather??? I will stick closer to home than I normally do in case I have to make a mad dash inside if it starts to downpour.

Next week I have a nutrition consultation with Helene from HC Nutrition. I’ve never had one before so I’m looking forward to what she has to say!
