At the beginning of the month, I did a review of my health and fitness goals, and one of the things that came up from that review was that I wanted to put together another fitness challenge like the one I attempted to do in preparation for my wedding. I actually had a lot of fun doing that one, when I actually did it… and it felt really good, so I spent some time making myself a new chart for the next month and a bit.
My schedule for work is going to be a bit chaotic, so I have attempted to take that in to account on the schedule. I’m hoping that if I don’t “fail” because I scheduled something wrong with work, then I’m more likely to keep going… in theory, anyway…
My new chart starts today… But I slept in this morning (hence the lunchtime blog posting), so I missed my morning workout time, which means if I’m not going “fail” on day one, I’ll have to make some time tonight to do my exercises. I made one change in exercises from my summer challenge, I got rid of the mountain climbers (I just don’t really like that exercise…) and replaced it with some leg raises. Not sure if it will be as effective, but I’ll give it a try.
So, without further ado, here’s my new fitness challenge chart:
Wish me luck & send me motivation, I’m definitely going to need it!
This morning, when I did my Monday morning weigh-in (for one of my other updated health goals to lose weight before the end of the year), I was unfortunately up a couple pounds… Yup, my goal of 10lbs is now a goal of 12lbs… I’m going to say it is because I started getting back in to the exercise routine last week, so I am first gaining muscle and then I’ll start losing the fat… right? Please say that sort of makes sense… I’ll roll with it for now. Hopefully it adds to my motivation.
Do you have any fall plans for your fitness? Want to join me in my challenge?
