I've talked about my struggles to get healthier a lot recently. However, I've only been focusing on eating better. I've been lazy, I'll admit it! But when I look in the mirror and see what having two kids and poor eating habits has done to my body, I know I need to add in some exercise in to my routine.
I also have bad asthma, so I've been using that as an excuse not to do any physical activity. I need to start small! I usually get elaborate ideas and then almost kill myself trying to achieve the new goals I set for myself. Small, realistic goals will hopefully lead to success.
I've heard that it takes 30 days of doing something to create a new habit. I don't know if it's true or not, but I think it's worth a shot. The MapMyFITNESS Quaker Challenge is a simple challenge and the first step to making lasting healthy choices. Quaker is asking us to add just 15 fitness activities into our routine over the next 30 days. That's only 15 workouts in 30 days!!! SUPER EASY!
There will be no hard core workouts here, I can't do that. What I can do is add in a nightly walk after supper with my kids and husband! Not only will this get me up and moving, it will get the kids active too and burn off that last little bit of energy before bed! My husband will also be able to hold me accountable...trust me, he is going to love that!
The MapMyFITNESS Quaker Challenge is such an easy challenge. I think it will be a great first start to adding an exercise routine back into my life. Whatever I end up doing, I know that I am making better choices for my body.
