It doesn’t matter whether your goal for the new year is a weight loss goal or a goal to run a marathon — anything that gives you reason to exercise is amazing. And don’t think about setting yourself just one big goal. You should set yourself a ton of small goals that will ultimately contribute to that bigger goal, and these can be set as often as you like. ??Daily Goal Example (I will go walking for 10 minutes today)?Weekly Goal Example (I will do a minimum of 3 workouts this week)?Hourly Goal Example (I will get up every hour and do 30 push ups)??Always having something to work for, big or small will keep you motivated on a daily basis and takes the enthesis away from the odd goal you might not be able to complete with out completely giving up on the big picture.
Part of doing what we do each day has to do with routine and habits. If you can make exercise a habit, you’re that much closer to making it easier to do. It helps to have a regular day and time you workout so that, once that time comes, you know it’s time to get busy. Find ways to make your workout just another part of your life, like brushing your teeth.
Joey’s January Fitness Challenge
My January program isn’t about losing weight, but more about learning to
focus on making healthy choices each day which by the end of the month
should become habits. My daily challenges are designed
to keep you active and conscious of making better food choices.
I would love you to join me for my 20 challenges over the next 30-days
This isn’t a weight loss program, although you will lose weight during the next 30 days. In fact, I encourage you not to weigh yourself throughout this entire process. As I want you to focus on the journey, not the destination. Here’s how it works:
Every week day I will be sending an email detailing your challenges for the day. That’s 20 challenges for the new years 1st month. These challenges will include:
An Active Challenge – these challenges will require you to be more active throughout the day with a variety of ideas.
An Exercise Challenge – these challenges offer more structured cardio and strength routines. You’ll have many choices for your workout, but always feel free to do your own routine if you like.
A Flexibility Challenge – these challenges will help you increase your flexibility with stretching, yoga type exercises.
A Nutrition Challenge – these challenges vary and will help you become more aware of your own eating habits (this isn’t a diet)
A Mind/Body Challenge – here you’ll find a number of challenges that help you relax, regroup and enjoy some quiet moments throughout the day.
Each email will also include a checklist which you can fill out at the end of each day.
Not all challenges will work for you. Always feel free to substitute or create your own challenges. Each checklist contains blanks where you can enter your own personal goals and accomplishments.
If you’re ready to join me, simply sign up and get ready for your first of the 20 Fitness Challenges. First email goes out the day of January 2nd and you should start your 1st challenge on the morning of Monday January 3rd 2011.
