Well folks it is August 1 and we are 30 days away from the 90 Day Fitness Challenge. People are starting to sign up and that is a great thing! The more the merrier/sweatier!!
In another week or two I am going to post my fitness plan that I will be following for the 90 days. As for now…. read below…
OK so there are a lot of things involved with a fitness challenge.
- A plan!
- Being ready!
Well I am sure there is more, but I just wanted to point out a few things. The reason I am starting this Sept 1 is so we can be both physically prepared and mentally prepared. Using this time to create a plan is so important. You should really have the 90 days planned out as to your workouts and your diet. It is nice and easy to follow a plan and check off the days you have finished. That can be a real mental boost to see the days of the calendar marked off as a sweet workout!
The way I am going to that is by doing the following. This month I am going to be doing work outs 2 -3 times a week with 1 day of that being cardio. I know this is not a lot, but I have been doing nothing this summer and the last thing I want to do is start this contest and burn out in the first two weeks.
By doing this “pre workout” I can accomplish a few things. For one I can get into a bit better shape and not have to deal with the soreness I would normally have busting into some crazy fitness challenge. Two I am not only getting into better shape I am also getting more overall energy to get me through the beginning stages of the challenge. The first two weeks can be a nightmare, but if you can get through that you can get through the rest. Three this prepares me mentally as well. This gets me back into the mindset that, hey I love how I feel when I am working out and sweating. It also gets me used to waking up early and getting back into the routine.
All in all this is going to help tremendously. Could I do nothing until Sept 1 and jump right into the contest? Of course I could, but just doing a few things beforehand will really help out in the long run.
