I know we’re already a week into May, but it’s never too late! Today, I just wanted to write about some challenges that I’m doing this month.
- Have at least half of my workouts for the week outside, or spend at least an hour outside being active after my workout.
- Step war! My sister just got a Polar watch and I have a Fitbit so we are going to compete to see who gets the most steps in over the next month.
- Track EVERYTHING I eat (I use myfitnesspal).
I must say, the first challenge has been my favorite. My husband and I go outside every day to play softball, tennis, or just go on a long walk in the park. It’s been good for my soul, and my husband and I get quality 1 on 1 time to wind down after a long day. We also just bought a kayak and even though I got severely sunburnt last week, I’m still so stoked to use it all summer!
Tracking my food has also made a world of difference. I had plateaued for over a month until I stared logging and tracking calories. I know it’s not for everyone and it’s a pain in the butt to get used to, but I’ve lost 4 lbs since I started 2 weeks ago. I finally feel like I’m 100% back on track now!
If you have any other good challenges, I’d love to hear them!
