This past week started the Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge sponsored by Lorna Jane and Fit Approach. Each day has a new challenge and if you post your proof to instagram you can win a $1000 shopping spree to Lorna Jane!
The first week focused on Move- making sure you move your body every day. The first challenge was to post a picture of your favorite way to sweat. Since this summer, my favorite way to sweat is running but thanks to the polar vortex and snow storms I was stuck inside so I did my second favorite, yoga.
Day two was to try a new way to work out. I tried a Tabata workout. I liked that it was easier to push myself when I knew each exercise was only going to last 20 seconds at a time. At the end I felt great!
Day three was 5 minutes of planking. I did a regular workout earlier in the day that had 1 min of a plank in it. I finished the other 4 minutes while watching TV later.
Day four was to buddy up and workout with a friend. I love working out with my dogs! I would have gone for a run with them but it was still too cold and snowy. Instead I worked out inside while they were hanging out with me. The puppy was not a fan of lunges. Every time I went to step out into a lunge he barked at my feet and tried to bite them. I’ll stick to running with the dogs!
Day five was your five fitness favorites. 1. Beyonce- I love working out to music and Beyonce is the best! 2. Pinterest- this is where I get most of my workout ideas if I’m not running. 3. My dogs- Have I mentioned I like to run with them? 4. Alex- My favorite workout buddy from afar. She lives in Austin, TX but we keep each other motivated! 5. My Active Living Diary- I got this for Alex for Christmas and had to get a copy for myself too. It has great inspiration and is perfect for logging my workouts and healthy eating!
I can’t believe I made it through the first week and posted every day! The second week is all about Nourish- nourishing my body from the inside out.
