5 % Challenge LTGL Blog Day 1

Saturday, March 02, 2013

For the spring 5 percent challenge, the goal today is to chose a new healthy habit that I am going to work on.

That new habit is to take a recovery day. At least one a week. Currently this is me:

My goal for this new habit is to realize that I need to take a day off to let my body rest and recover. That this is a way to be healthy just as much as exercising every day. It might be hard and stressful for me, but it is needed. As my trainer says it does not have to be a day of sitting eating bond bonds and watching tv, I can still go for a nice walk with the dog, but I do not have to get 25,000 steps, I can take care of me.

    Rest days are very important for your body and are easily as important as the workout. Especially for strength training. That is when the muscle rebuilds itself stronger. Try to think of it as giving your body a day to make itself stronger and maybe that will help :) Good luck!!

    This is so hard to do, isn't it? I had struggled with this for a long time myself. I now give myself one or two days per week.

    Good luck! That sounds like a great goal. Everyone's body needs a rest every now and then.

  If you are doing 25K steps each day, then I think a day of rest is certainly in order. This is more than 10 miles a day! What stamina! Good luck.
