A Commitment for Breast Cancer Awareness

If you haven't already heard, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One of my new favorite blogs, Elastic Waist, is hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge. Since studies show that exercise can decrease your risk of developing breast cancer, Weetabix at Elastic Waist suggests we all work to get in 3o minutes of exercise every day for six weeks. The challenge started on Wednesday, but there's still plenty of time to join in.

Go ahead. Stop by Elastic Waist to check out the challenge, email Weetabix (weetabix at elasticwaist dot com) if you're interested in "officially" joining and start getting your workout on. It's only 30 minutes a day, and there aren't any rules that disqualify you for doing crunches and squats in front of television at the end of the day because you haven't managed to squeeze in a trip to the gym today. Just saying...

Kudo's for doing/writing/sharing anything that raises the awareness. Exercise is paramount to a healthy existence. Peace
