The results are in, and KD beat KO in this November step challenge. I will say that I thought the challenge was initially a great idea. By the end, I was obsessed with the steps and I hated the challenge. However, ultimately it got me out walking when I would have easily chosen to take the night off and sit on the couch.
Karen has now asked to continue this challenge into December. At first I said no way. However, I recognize that this challenge doesn’t have to be just about winning. Well, not 100%. The challenge did get me off my butt and walking around this fair city.
One other great bonus for me-I used to listen to music when I walked. The last couple walks, I started listening to podcasts. It is so informative! The latest podcasts are the ones from Liz Gilbert, author of Big Magic (Eat Pray Love). Which now has lead me to a long reading list of self help type books. So next step will be listening to some audio books, podcasts and maybe once in a while, some great tunes. Yes, I realize I am late to this.
And yes, I’m probably late to the game on Brene Brown’s Ted talk, but I listened to this after my last walk and it was great. I’m putting it here, as I’m going to listen to it again. Brene Brown and Vulnerability
