Making it work without a challenge?

Sunday, December 18, 2011

After I finished the year-long challenge, I wanted to take a break and see how I do without the structure. The verdict? Pretty well! I now make a point to work exercise into every day, even without the challenge, and I'm proud of that. I've also been trying to mix things up when I can: In the last two weeks, I've done classes in Zumba, step aerobics, and aerobics, and I enjoyed them all. And I got back to the gym for some strength training too. I'd been letting that lapse and it was great to get back and see that, thanks to the classes, I haven't lost my strength. So, woo hoo! I want 2012 to be healthy, healthy, healthy!
To be honest with myself, though, I have to admit that I've let my eating slide. I need to make a new effort to work those fruits and vegetables on to my plate every day, and I need much more calcium. The 365-day "just 10 minutes" challenge worked so well for me. Maybe I need to do a food challenge. Hmmmm, food for thought.

    Wow! That's quite a challenge you've accomplished! Good for you! And you're back in the gym doing different things! I wish I could be that ambitious. I need to work on my fruits and veggies, too. Sounds like I've got myself a couple of challenges thanks to reading your blog.
