One of the best ways to build a habit is to do it for 30 days straight. In July we had the 30 day Water Challenge. August we will be focusing on getting moving with the 30 Get Moving Challenge.
Last August I was a hard plateau on my weightloss, so I decided to make a goal to do at least 15 minutes of activity everyday for August. The results were great I got out of my plateau, but I also got a new appreciation for exercise. I actually started looking forward to getting moving everyday.
What is the 30 Get Moving Challenge?
The challenge is to do at least 15 minutes of activity every day for 30 days. You can do cardio, strength training or just go for a walk. But the idea is to add some activity to each day for the 30 days.
Only 15 Minutes?
If 15 minutes doesn’t seem very much for you and your activity level then change the goal to 30 minutes. This challenge is great because you can change it to your activity level and your skills. Disclaimer: Always check with your doctor before starting this or any new exercise routine.
What if I Miss A Day?
That’s okay just double your activity the next day and make it up.
