Show Us Your Walking Shoes!
**Disclosure: This is a post written by me on behalf of United HealthCare. All thoughts and opinions, as always, are my own.
Alright folks, it’s time for another October fitness challenge from yours truly and the folks at Source4Women and United Healthcare. This is a website created by United Healthcare that provides healthy living information on things like nutrition exercise, health screenings and more for women. Every month they do a photo contest to encourage you to live a healthy and active lifestyle. This month’s photo challenge was to upload a photo of your walking shoes. This is an easy one because I always have my walking shoes handy! Here’s the pic I uploaded:
Walking has become my go-to activity lately. Why? Because I’m 31 weeks pregnant and under doctor’s orders to only partake in low impact exercise right now. So all I’ve been doing is walking, swimming, and stand-up paddleboarding. My feet have swelled up since I’ve been pregnant and I have had to loosen my shoelaces a bit, but I am still walking almost everyday. I am also wearing my Fitbit Flex regularly to track my steps and make sure I get in 10,000 per day. It’s getting hard, but I know I need to do it.
Speaking of walking, did you know that only 21-34% of average U.S. adults get the average recommended walking time or 30 minutes 5x per week in? Do you get this much walking in per week?
Here are some of my favorites from the We Dare You gallery:
- Monkey Feet
- B Ball Shoes
- Soccer Cleats
- Sweet Neon Orange Running Shoes
- One of my favorites – Flip Flops!
