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:

Finally, finally, finally!! I hit my exercise goal this week — yay!

And tomorrow starts a new month… so look for a new challenge post tomorrow afternoon. 🙂

This Week’s Progress:

So I didn’t entirely bomb this week like I did last week, but between my book launch and a cold, I only managed to exercise a few times.

Truthfully, I was feeling frustrated over not hitting my goals again this week, but my friend Joy reminded last night the last two weeks have been very different than usual and I just need to practice what I preach and give myself grace. So I’m trying to do just that. 🙂

12 Months to a Healthier You Check-in: Week 3 (the week I completely BOMB the challenge!)

This Week’s Progress:

You may have noticed that I’ve been absent from here this week. That’s because I had a bit of a crazy week… one that didn’t allow time for blogging or exercise.

I spent most of the week doing interviews and media meetings in NYC (I’m posting a recap in a bit for those who are interested in getting a peek into my week). So I pretty much bombed my exercise plans.

Unless the one mile I ran on the treadmill or all the walking I did in NYC counts. Other than that, I did zero exercise. But I’m going to give myself grace… and get back up on the bandwagon again tomorrow. 🙂 And hopefully I’ll have a much more positive report to share next week.

This Week’s Progress:

It’s Week 2 of P90X and I’m still loving it. Although I have to admit that I was happy when my rest day rolled around on the schedule. But then I missed exercising and was excited to get back to it the next day.

I’m already seeing more muscle definition and toning… and I’ve only been at this for a 10 days. So that’s truly encouraging! Plus, I really can tell a difference in my energy levels! Yay!

Join the 12 Months to A Healthier You Challenge 2019
Happy New Year!

As I’ve been pondering what goals I want to have for this year, one area I really want to focus on is my health. It’s easy to let our health take a back burner to everything else on our to-do list. But as I share in my book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, I’ve experienced what happens when you put your health last… and it’s not pretty!

With this in mind, I’m committed to making my health even more of a priority this year. And I’d love to have you join me for the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge.

We’ll be focusing on one challenge area each month — all with the goal of being in a healthier place as a person by the end of next year. My hope is that as we work on instilling one new healthy habits each month, they won’t just be month-long challenges, but lifelong changes.

12 Months to a Healthier You Focus Areas

Here are the focus areas I’ve planned out for each month this year:

January: Exercise Regularly
February: Eat More Fresh Fruits & Veggies
March: Drink More Water
April: Cut Back on Sugar
May: Get More Rest
June: Create a Morning Routine
July: Read More
August: Go to Bed Earlier
September: Declutter Your Home
October: Cut Back on Caffeine
November: Keep a Gratitude Journal
December: Simplify & Say No

How This Challenge Will Work:

At the beginning of the month, I’ll introduce the focus area and encourage you to set a small goal for that specific area and I’ll share my goals.

Then, every Friday, I’ll have a check-in post where I’ll encourage you to share your progress & struggles and I’ll share mine, as well. If you want to blog about your progress, I’ll include a link-up at the end of the post so you can share your blog posts on this challenge.

In addition to the Friday check-ins, I’ll also probably share a few posts and guest posts on the monthly topics each month, along with sharing about related books, resources, or websites that I’ve found helpful.
