Dewey 24 Hour ReadaThon

Howdy Y’all! I am here to bribe Dewey’s participants to get up and move! My mini-challenge this time is relatively simple: Get up and move 15 min at some point between Hour 13 and Hour 17. I call this my #FitReader #ReadAThon get up off your butt challenge.

My plan: To get up 15 min each hour during this 4 hour block! You don’t have to do that much but I would encourage you to spend a solid 15 min loosening up your limbs. We are far enough in that the butt is probably getting a little sore from all the sitting. Give the bum a break and shake it a bit!

Here is a Mix from the 80s that will put you in a Rocky state of mind and PERFECT for dancing/walking/or whatever

Open Internationally (Void where prohibited): Book of your choice from Book Depository up to a $10 value! Good luck….

    This is great! Most of my movement consists of getting up to brew more tea, so it’s helpful to have the reminder that today could be quite sedentary. Jumping jacks between chapters it is!

  2. Erika

    I’ve been trying to keep moving all day. Unfortunately, it’s been raining here all day so I haven’t been able to get outside, but I’ve been doing dishes, folding laundry, and even did some squats and crunches (all while listening to an audiobook, so no reading time lost!). This is a great challenge! Thanks!

  3. Sierra

    Yes!! This is amazing!! It was so nice to get UP OFF MY BUTT, and go outside with the baby in her stroller and my audiobook and walk!

  4. Gabrielle

    I am participating in a Weekend FitBit Challenge and realized that I was basically at Level Sloth so I downloaded Amy Poehler’s “Yes Please” as an audiobook and marched around my room listening to it. for about 45 minutes. Or 5400 ish steps. I will probably do another chunk later to get to 10,000.

    I had had plans to go for a walk but I took a nap inside and now it is dark and raining.

    I am planting a tree. Seriously. Son is digging hole now. That’s next hour. This hour, I am making something to eat.

  6. Danika

    This was easy, since as it came up my roommate and I had just decided to walk to Starbucks from our apartment, a solid 15 minute walk! Thanks for encouraging healthy reading habits ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Jamie

    I have been out on the beach all day and have had lots of exercise alreadu but I took a strool away fromt eh chaos for a bit and walked the surf edge for 20 minutes ๐Ÿ™‚

    As soon as I’m done commenting I am going to get up and get myself a glass of wine. And, ok, do some stretches too. I’ve had to be careful with this readathon because I have a messed up back and prolonged sitting (or lounging on the couch) is super painful. Great idea to remind people to get up off their behinds! I wish I could dance around like a lunatic but the back prevents it! Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Sabrina

    I’m glad it’s almost 3 am here in Germany, so it’s pretty unlikely that anyone saw me jumping up and down to Eye of the Tiger ๐Ÿ˜€ Great challenge!

  10. Gisselle

    Nice idea! I’ve trying to get up and walk a little every now and then.
    Thanks for the challenge!

  11. Aileen

    I’ve been taking regular walking breaks and getting up now and then to move around while reading . Posted progress on my Instagram @dinahshouse

  12. Michelle

    I worked for 5 hours this morning on my feet the whole time. I do the pulling and shipping for Hastings. It means wandering the store and pulling the online orders and packaging them. I seriously need to grab a pedometer so I know how far I’ve walked. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Mer

    I’ve been prett stationary for 12 hours, but in an hour or so I’ll be walking to watch a soccer game, earphones in and audiobook on. Last read-a-thin I actually played a field hockey game in the middle and it turned out to be my best ga,e of the season, so reading and exercise do go well together!

  14. chris

    I often move around when I read, read-a-thon included. But my favorite activity is to min-cycle when I read. And most recently with the book The Color Purple I looked like the pic here, stirring and reading only I did have a bit more clothes on haha!

  15. Melody

    I got up and stretched for a while. It’s currently 3 am and my mum’s sleeping in the room beneath mine, so I wasn’t able to do anything livelier than that, but it really helped make me feel a bit more refreshed and awake. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. JennRenee

    Unfortunately I have been moving since noon and really would love to sit and read for a while…. So this 15 minute move will be good. planning on going for a walk in a bit, with an audio book,

  17. Ann-Kristine Hald

    Hi there. What a great challenge. Right now it is almost 2.30 AM in Denmark and I bet I’m not the only one who’s getting tired. So I’m doing Jumping Jacks and run a bit in the same spot.

  18. Trine229

    Been standing up, reading for a while. but! It is 2.23 am and I’ve been up since 7am yesterday, and its time for a few hours of napping!:p That is a different position at least;)

  19. Tascha

    I planned to do a little Taylor Swift Dance-Party in the middle of the night and because I was feeling tired I did it just after I read about your Challenge. I’m reading from Germany and it turned 2 am here and I started to feel a little tired and sleepy. Thank you for your challenge and the encouragement to finally get up and move a litte. I think I’ll move a litte more often in the next few hours.

  20. Molly

    I’m going to get up and play with my 2 dogs for a bit each hour! Just to play fetch or chase them around the house (they love that! Haha)

  21. Aimee

    I’ve done yoga several times today. I get either too easily distracted or sleepy if I don’t move around a little once in a while.

  22. Sadaf Hassan

    A lot going on at my end (family gatherings etc) so nothing seems to be going in my favor this readathon ๐Ÿ™
    I’m still trying though. I hope I can at least finish the one book I’ve been trying to since the readathon began. It’s The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman by the way.

  23. Nikki

    I actually have a standing desk, so I’ve been regularly getting up and moving at least a little when I come to type my updates! I’ve been spending at least five minutes doing that every hour.

  24. Tim

    I will take my dog out for a walk soon for a full hour. I go to balcony to smoke every hour for 5 mins or so. Not too bad ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Caity

    My fifteen minutes of moving are going to be me doing my physical therapy exercises for my knee. With my knee issues, anything else hurts these days.

  26. Emma

    I actually got up and paced around my room with my book when I got sick of sitting. Probably looked pretty strange, but you gotta avoid going numb!

  27. Malene H

    I didn’t exactly take a walk, but I did get of my butt and went outside to take a smoke (healthy – I know). Besides, there are stairs and all. ๐Ÿ˜›

  28. Shawn williams

    Throughout the last 13 hours I’ve been getting up and getting on the treadmill with a book. Sometimes it was a disaster. However, there was a few good moments!
