If you know me, you know that I love a challenge. More so recently I set out on the path with a group of friends to complete the 100 happy days challenge found here: www.100happydays.com
Unfortunately, I did not fully complete the challenge, but instead stopped on Day 30. I honestly felt like I had accomplished what I needed to do—which was to find something in each day that made me happy. I soon came to realize that I did not need such a challenge to find joy in everyday of my life. With that said I give kudos to those who have completed all 100 days (including my friend Nichelle) because frankly I wish I had crossed that finish line.
After not completing those 100 days, I soon realized I wanted (more like needed) to challenge myself again. But this time, in a way that would mean a lot more to me and would ultimately help me reach my personal goals at the same time.
So here goes nothing! I have devised a 100 Days Fit for LIFE challenge!
The terms of the challenge include the following guidelines:
- 100 days of at least 20 mins of physical activity/exercise each day
- No physical activity/exercise on Sundays
- Eat clean at least 75 % of time
- Drink plenty of water (check out my H20 Battle: Drink Up post to see how much you should be drinking)
- Keep personal journal and use hashtag #100toLIFE if want to track and share journey via social media
*Disclaimer: Do not over exert your body. If you are concerned that you only have one day to rest each week..remember that the minimum is 20 minutes and that your physical activity can be a light or less strenuous exercise like yoga, pilates, or simple stretching. –just make sure that it is purpose driven and intentional! Also, if necessary, consult your doctor before beginning the challenge.
By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.- Genesis 2:2
FYI – I have actually just completed DAY 6 of the challenge and of course Day 7 is my rest day (Sunday) – I needed to see if I could do it before I started challenging others. Also, I was supposed to have recorded my first vlog today and posted it below to show how things are going, BUT due to technical difficulties, I will have to wait to post it! Stay tuned!
For all of my subscribers, I apologize that this might seem last minute. Feel free to join in on this challenge anytime. We could even be on DAY 30! Know that this challenge is not only for me, but for anyone who would really like to make daily physical activity a lifestyle change for them.
