Change Your Life Challenge #3

Remember the Change Your Life Challenge?

I got all pumped up about it and my friends were talking about it and then it just kind of...fizzled away.

I (kind of) ate vegetarian for a week. I donated clothes like I was supposed to. And I haven't done anything since then. Well, not true. I have made some really awesome progress on my 101 in 1001 list, but I was really misisng that week-long CHALLENGE. Something that jump-started my own personal goals.

Enter my own Change Your Life Challenege. If the powers that be aren't brainstorming anymore, I'll do them on my own (and hope that you will play along!)

Who: Me, and whoever else would like to join!

What: Exercise for 30+ minutes every day of the week

When: Starting today, Sunday May 22, through Saturday, May 28. (I know this isn't a lot of prep time, so if you can't start until Tuesday, start Tuesday and go through next Monday!)

Why: It's so easy to get unmotivated when it comes to exercise, so I just need a little kick in the pants! Especially with the warmer weather and all the fun social activities that means!

How: Today I walked for 50 minutes (to my office and back home, 3 miles!). I intend to take a yoga class at Red Hot Yoga with a Living Social coupon I purchased, play tennis at least once, go on another walk, and who knows what else! You could do a class at a gym, 30 minutes of weight lifting in your apartment complex fitness room, a yoga video, Wii Fit for 30 minutes, walk your dog for 30 minutes...the possibilities are endless!

  1. Hmm. Does it count if I already do this? haha. No but really.

  2. Really great idea! I recommend to help maintain some sort of accountability for exercising. It's easy to get slack if nobody's watching, but that site is basically a facebook for exercising (not just running), so you can create a network of exercising buddies, and it's a great way to keep track of everything you've done. Just a thought.
