I’m sure you’ve all seen this viral video this month. It’s been everywhere…umm…hence…viral! Facebook, blogs, you name it. If you haven’t seen it – please take the time – it’s inspirational to all who have seen it.
This woman is Lakeisha Shurn. Lakeisha recorded a video diary every day for 100 days on her efforts to lose weight and boost her self-esteem. In return she not only accomplished her goals, she also inspired thousands of people to “love thyself”.
I decided to give and STICK to a goal of 10k steps a day for 100 days. That was always a goal I had for myself since getting the Fitbit & it’s kind of worked but there were days where I would just toss in the towel and say “f-it”. Lakeisha’s message about loving thyself really stuck with me.
When I saw the video I was home with Natie, who was home sick with the stomach bug. I swear…there’s nothing worst than seeing your child sick & feeling so helpless.
(I love how he looks like a little superhero soaring through the sky here….)
He wanted lots & lots of snuggle time and he got it! <3 In those moments when he was sleeping peacefully I decided to get off the couch & walk…in the house. I actually paced from one end of the house to the other. Now, my house isn’t big, so I did a lot of laps. Something that would have bored me to death was actually quite fun thanks to being able to catch up on my Kindle list of books!
It ended up raining all weekend plus I wasn’t feeling good, but with pacing the house and reading my book…I ended up hitting my goal every day! Something I really wouldn’t have done or committed to if it wasn’t for Lakeisha Shurn!
Here have been my Fitbit step stats since committing to “love thyself”!

It’s really pushed me to get off my butt & move!
I’m hoping after the 100 days I’m going to set a goal of 15k…or maybe even 20k!
Have you seen Lakeisha Shurn’s video? Did it inspire you to “love thyself”? Did you make a 100 days challenge?
***and no…I’m not actually doing the Give it 100 project video. I’m just keeping it real with myself…and you!
I created a page on my blog to track my progress…because I”m going to smash this challenge with myself!
