Give me seven!
Can you believe it's April 2 already?? Today I want to talk to those of you who woke up this morning and saw the calendar and wondered where this year has gone so far..
I want to reach out to those of you who maybe set fitness or health goals on January 1, started out strong, and then life got in the way. This post is for everyone out there that is looking for a gentle push to get motivated again.
I would like to offer up a challenge to you and to me. It's a Seven Day Challenge.
And it starts TODAY. And yes, I am aware that it is not a Monday.
Who says we can only make life changing decisions on Mondays??
I want to encourage you to take a good look at where you are and then where you want to be. What are you doing right now, or not doing, that you know you need to change?
Next, and this is the fun part, create your own seven day challenge. It can be anything! Here are some ideas:
-Take a 20 minute walk each day for the next seven days.
-Alternate between walking, riding your bike, and maybe an exercise DVD each day for seven days.
Need to be further challenged?
-Add in a completely different workout or strength training to your existing routine for the next seven days.
There is really no limit to what this challenge can entail. Maybe it's a food thing you want to try.
Again this is totally up to you. For your own support and accountability, I invite you to comment below with your own personal seven day challenge. Then, when the week is up, let's meet back here and post how our challenge went.
Need additional motivation? I am going to be giving away two little "way-to-go" gifts at the end of this? How do you enter to win?
There are two opportunities to enter to win:
1. Comment below and share your seven day challenge.
2. Share pics of yourself during your seven day challenge with the hashtag #simplysolesearching7days on either Instagram or Facebook.
Two winners will be randomly chosen at the end of next week and announced here and on facebook.
My prayer for all of us is that we will use these next seven days to our advantage. Work hard and you will feel awesome!
