That’s right. I joined a fitness challenge for the first month of the year. I wanted the community support of the group to help guide me back to a healthy lifestyle. I have been working out here and there, but if the video doesn’t cue up or I’m sweating more than I want, I tend to throw in the towel. That stops NOW.
I joined the beach body health challenge and specifically with my high school friend (who’s a coach) in her 21 day fix wedding challenge. No, I am not prepping for a wedding. I’m actually coming up on 7 years of marriage with my hubby. But, my friend is awesome and let me join anyway! The health challenge is for 4 weeks, so there will be a bonus week thrown in. The challenge requires 3 workouts a week and 5 shakeology drinks per week. Now, I am not a fan of the cost of the drink and usually just get cellucor, but for this challenge, I had to get it and it was discounted with the year membership for their on demand videos.
I’m positive I can complete this challenge. I want to push myself further and complete the entire 21 day fix and possibly start either core de force or piyo immediately following. The reason I chose the on demand is so that I can sample workouts and choose a program that will fit my life and my schedule at that time. The challenge starts Sunday and I will take a before picture with all of the measurements and my current weight. I will post (even though I am slightly embarrassed) that photo in the kick off blog post. I may even start vlogging after completing my workout for the day and just doing a daily evaluation of my successes and failures for that day.
My new planner from Create 365 has a fitness addition that I will be tracking my meals, water consumption and exercise completed. At the end of each month it allows you to evaluate your month and plan for the upcoming month.
What are your goals for the month of January? Who is your support system? Do you need a community of peers to help keep you on track? I’m happy to provide support and encouragement for anyone looking to achieve their goals this year!
