This May I’m participating along with my coworkers in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving and support BC Cancer patients! I'm joining others across the province to move, no matter where we are, every single day of the month.
One in two British Columbians are affected by cancer, including many of my family and friends. That's why I've committed to move and raise funds for patients, survivors and those we've lost. Please consider donating to the cause, and if you do, I'd be extra appreciative if you selected the "rest day pass" option to buy me a day off once if a while :)
My last "day off pass"! Thanks to my parents for buying me a day off on a rainy, busy day!

40 minute walk with the kids! They are getting harder and harder to get out the door but we did it!

Paul was off today and it was a beautiful, sunny day so we walked about an hour. It was a hot one!

Another 45ish minute walk around the neighborhood with the kids.
by Sara Hudson on Fri, May 29, 2020 @ 1:15 PM
Remembered the sunscreen today so we walked about 45 minutes!
by Sara Hudson on Fri, May 29, 2020 @ 1:13 PM
I can't believe it's been 25 days! Today we just walked half an hour because kids were fighting, I'm still feeling a little tired, and the sun came out full force and we forgot sunscreen. We might go out again later for another walk though!

Paul bought me a day off today as I was feeling pretty tired from donating blood still. Back to it tomorrow though!
by Sara Hudson on Tue, May 26, 2020 @ 11:35 AM
2 walks today! Each was about 45 minutes or maybe longer. I also donated blood!
by Sara Hudson on Tue, May 26, 2020 @ 11:34 AM
We walked 4 km today, so a little over an hour. I even ran a very small part of it chasing Gabriel!
by Sara Hudson on Fri, May 22, 2020 @ 4:36 PM
Just a 50 minute walk today because we had a Zoom appointment before lunch, plus it was pretty rainy and the kids started shivering!

Day 20- another rest day
I took the opportunity to sleep way in today and was to busy the rest of the day to fit in a walk, so rest day it is!
by Sara Hudson on Fri, May 22, 2020 @ 4:33 PM
Day 19- rest day
Today Ted and I had our shoes on and were ready to go, but Gabriel was having none of it. We (okay, I) decided to take a rest day even though it's a beautiful day for a walk. Some things just aren't worth the struggle, plus I have a few rest day passes left to use! Looking forward to getting back to it tomorrow.

Another sunny day! We kind of did our route in reverse today but still walked about an hour. We would have stayed out longer but I had sourdough bread to make and that takes most of the day!
by Sara Hudson on Tue, May 19, 2020 @ 9:34 PM
Totally forgot to log this day but we walked at least an hour!
by Sara Hudson on Tue, May 19, 2020 @ 9:32 PM
Day 16- over half done!
Today we walked 4 km in a little over an hour. Not the fastest pace but that's how it goes with the kids. It only rained on us a little bit, so I think we timed our walk well!

Day 15- Ted's birthday!
Today is the day I am counting as the "not a day off" that my Gramma donated. Her donation came un the form of a cheque with a hand written note stating that I was NOT to take a day off, I was to do a day for her. Well, this morning my feet hurt and I was feeling extra tired so I considered using a day off pass, but it was such a nice day that I didn't want to stay inside. We walked about 50 minutes and for some reason by the end of it my feet didn't hurt anymore! So glad I didn't take the day off :)
by Sara Hudson on Sat, May 16, 2020 @ 2:26 PM
We walked about an hour today and would have kept going but we had a Zoom meeting to get to. Another nice day for a walk!
by Sara Hudson on Thu, May 14, 2020 @ 7:41 PM
45 minutes today with Ted on my back and Gabriel on his scooter- which means a faster pace with the occasional dead stop :p And lots of anxiety on my part so I definitely got my heart rate up today!
by Sara Hudson on Thu, May 14, 2020 @ 7:39 PM
Just 45 minutes today because it was raining and we had to drop some stuff off for a friend before lunch, but I still got at least 30 minutes un even though I was not feeling super motivated when I started out. Happy that I did it though!
by Sara Hudson on Tue, May 12, 2020 @ 1:34 PM
LONG walk today, a couple minutes shy of 2 hours! Making up for my day off yesterday :p The weather is beautiful and the rain is coming, plus my mom was in my backyard pruning my tree and I didn't want the kids to know she was there since kids are crap at social distancing. So we just kept walking!
by Sara Hudson on Tue, May 12, 2020 @ 1:32 PM
Day 10- Mother's Day!
Today I used a day off pass. In all honesty I walked for about 30 minutes, but a lot of it was slow (both kids on foot) and I stopped to play Pokemon Go a bit, and I had a big ol' cup of sangria with me the whole time, so I'm counting this as my first "day off"! Many thanks to Uncle Jim and Uncle Brian for buying me a day off by donating <3

Family walk today, not the longest again because it was HOT! I believe it went up to 28 degrees today so we sunscreened up and walked about 50 minutes. We may go for another walk later too :)
by Sara Hudson on Sat, May 09, 2020 @ 4:28 PM
2 shorter walks today totalling about an hour. Not the longest because of the kids short attention spans but still more than 30 minutes!
by Sara Hudson on Sat, May 09, 2020 @ 4:25 PM
It's been a week! We did a shorter walk today because Gabriel was on his scooter. Still got over 30 minutes in though! These sunny days make it pretty easy to get out and moving.
by Sara Hudson on Thu, May 07, 2020 @ 6:50 PM
It's been almost a week of long walks every day and the kids are starting to get used to the routine. And so am I :p 70 minutes today!
by Sara Hudson on Thu, May 07, 2020 @ 6:48 PM
Another sunny day, another walk with the kids. An hour and 20 minutes today. Ted only screamed for 10 minutes of it so I consider that a win. He was mad when I turned to do a second loop of the park and had no trouble letting me know until the loop was done.
Looking forward to tomorrow's walk :D
by Sara Hudson on Tue, May 05, 2020 @ 10:35 PM
I was all pumped and ready for a walk pushing 90ish pounds of kid + stroller when I remembered that Gabriel had a Zoom meeting in 30 minutes... so we walked 25 minutes, came back for the meeting, then loaded the stroller back up for another 55 minutes.
I'm over half way to my fundraising goal and haven't had to use a day off pass yet so I'm feeling pretty good!
by Sara Hudson on Mon, May 04, 2020 @ 5:31 PM
Over 12,000 steps and 81 active minutes according to my Fitbit! Day three went well!
by Sara Hudson on Mon, May 04, 2020 @ 5:26 PM
Another walk today, only 40 minutes because it was raining and Gabriel decided to hit Ted in the face with a toy. But I did it! Still feeling good :)
