Walk to Victory: #VionicWalkabout


Les Petites, I have had a really difficult holiday season. The day after Christmas I lost my mother to cancer and to be completely honest and transparent with you I am broken and devastated. It's been difficult to get out of bed and be functional so when I received an email from my friends over at VIONIC about the annual #VionicWalkabout a challenge where participants pledge to walk for thirty minutes a day for thirty days I instantly felt that this could be something that can help me work through my grief (deep breath). Here's the details and I invite you all to join me to walk for thirty days with me and Voinic. The challenge starts on Feburary 1st - all you need is determination and some good supportive shoes (Vionic makes some great ones hint, hint!). 

WHAT IS WALKABOUT?
A Walkabout is an Australian journey for well-being during which one seeks to clarify his/her life purpose. The Vionic Walkabout challenge is inspired by the Aussies and aims to improve physical and mental well-being by creating healthy habits over the course of 30 days.
WHY WALK?
Walking can improve physical health by helping you manage your weight, boost your immune system, lower blood pressure, strengthen your heart and much more. It can also improve your mood, ease depression and help maintain mental efficiency!
