Yay it’s January 1st. This day always brings about so much hope and excitement.
Apparently I wasn’t the only one to think of the term 40 days of fitness… I guess it is true there aren’t any new things under the sun. Livestrong has a 40 days of fitness challenge. It’s awesome. The premise is make one healthy choice everyday for 40 days. What I’ll be doing here is similar, but a little bit different. I will be giving you ideas/ tips/ mini challenges for you to do everyday for the 40 days. The hope is to make some positive changes in the new year that stick.
So day 1 is to pick your thing… yup your one little thing that you are going to do everyday these 40 days. I am going to do 50 push ups everyday. Pick something small that takes less than 10 minutes so that you are able to do it everyday. You can do something positive like adding a glass of water a day, eating 5 fruits/veggies a day, walk an extra block with your dog everyday, doing 25 crunches or it can be a bad choice that you give up like taking the elevator, cookies, french fries, or soda.
Think about it – what is something you wouldn’t mind doing too much – 40 days is a pretty long time and you’ll be really energized if you do it everyday!
In these 40 days I’ll give you small tips, encouragement, and test out some of the workouts that they have available on Pinterest for free. Hopefully it’ll be a great experience for all of us. Good Luck!
