Are you joining us for the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge? If so, it’s Friday and guess what that means? It’s time for our weekly check-in to post our progress.
We’re focusing on developing the habit of exercising more in January. I encourage you to set a simple and doable goal for exercise and to stick with it.
If you haven’t set your January Exercise Goal yet, be sure to do so and then leave a comment on this post telling us what your goal is. New to this challenge? Read more details on the plan for this year here.
My Exercise Goal for January
My goal for January is to consistently exercise at least 5 times per week. I plan to follow the P90X workout schedule except for the days when I’m traveling/out of town. On those days, I plan to stick with cardio/running.
This Week’s Progress:
I started P90X on Wednesday. I’ve gone through the program before, but it’s been quite a while and the first day kicked my tail.
The second day wasn’t quite as bad. And today (the third day), I actually woke up excited to exercise. In fact, I rolled out of bed, changed into my workout clothes, and started exercising first thing!
I’m incredibly encouraged (albeit a bit sore!) because after just three days, I feel stronger and healthier. I am especially thankful because I’ve been feeling somewhat in a funk the past few weeks and I’ve felt so much more energetic the past three days. I really think it has to do with starting my day with strenuous exercise.
It’s amazing how much good exercise does for your overall well-being! I’m hoping my enthusiasm doesn’t wear off as the days go by! 🙂
