My workouts have been few and far between lately. This usually means that I’m crabby (think Lorelai Gilmore without coffee…sorry if you don’t get the reference). As I was thinking of something new to try this past week, I remembered a post on Lift Like a Girl about 30 day challenges. A typical 30 day challenge involves a pretty big commitment (juice cleanses, cabbage soup, 300 kettlebell swings, 200 push-ups, etc.). Has anyone else wanted to throw a brick through the TV while doing the 30 Day Shred? Well, this challenge is going to be much more manageable.
Every day in August, I will be doing at least 10 minutes of physical activity. It’s that simple. I’m hoping it will help me get back into a good routine. I might not be able to get to the gym, but I don’t have many valid excuses for skipping a 10 minute walk or lifting session.
What experiences have you had with challenges like this? Have you found any with lasting benefits?
