Yesterday(11.24.2012) I posted a video blog that contains my thoughts on society’s acceptance of the ‘holiday 10 pounds.’ That video can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
I still say that is NOT acceptable and completely UNNECESSARY, period. I want to take this challenge one step further. How am I going to take this one step further you ask, well, I’m glad you did.
I believe that there are two important steps that we can ALL take for the next 36 days that will help form healthy habits for a very long time.
Two very simple steps to the 10 Minutes a day challenge:
Step 1. 10 minutes of fitness a day!
So many people use the excuse of, ‘but I don’t have time’, oh bull is my response to that! Sure, you may not have time for a 120 minute workout, but you can make 10 minutes a day and get a short workout done. “I don’t have time” is an excuse, not matter how we look at it and it’s time that you figure out how to remove that excuse. Need a few ideas of short workouts to do, simply ask, there are so many things that you can do for 10 minutes that will do a body good!
Step 2. Put your fork down between bites.
So many of us eat entirely too fast because we are in a hurry(this starts with school lunch programs, but that’s a different challenge). Putting your fork down will help train us to eat slower, which in turn will allow our body to tell the brain that we do not need more food, therefore we don’t over eat.(run on sentence big time, but you get the point)
I have created a FaceBook group called 10 Minute Challenge Group, this is an open group, and anybody can join and take part. I don’t care what walk of life you come from, where you are at with your fitness level, if you are fit or fat, join this group and let’s all help each other. I feel like this is an amazing way to show support for each other, help each other, hold each other accountable, etc. Post to the group daily how you are doing with the challenge.
It’s 36 days.
36 days that can help propel you into 2013
36 days toward a healthier life style
36 days toward a healthier family
10 minutes a day can and will make a HUGE difference in your life. Join me in this challenge and let’s make a difference in our own lives as well as others.
