Let’s keep the momentum going! We are continuing our EWSL Accountability Challenge for August 2021. AND… We are trying something different for August. All of the nightly check-ins will occur in our Facebook group. (Not on our FB page or our Instagram)
Goals for August: Track your progress with this month’s calendar (you’ll find the download link below). Circle the letter associated with the task you’ve completed. These daily habits are SO powerful and SO practical. All you have to do is be consistent.
- E – Exercise for 30 minutes or more per workout. Your choice of an exercise routine because we want to make this challenge as flexible as possible. No excuses.
- W – Drink at least 64 oz of water each day. If you drink much more than that or much less due to medical limitations (due to kidney issues or other ailments), that’s fine. Do what works for you.
- S – Avoid added sugar. That means processed sugar, refined sugar, corn syrup, etc. (Naturally occurring sugars are fine.)
- L – Avoid eating after 8 pm/avoid late night eating. (Or… Stop eating at least 2 hours before bedtime.)
Let’s Connect: Join the nightly check-in in our Facebook group. (6:30 EST) Share your daily workouts and meals with the hashtag: #BWLWAug on your social media accounts.
REMINDER: Do what works for YOU! Working out five days a week is a great goal. However, if you can only work out for 2-3 days a week, commit to that. YOU know your level of fitness. We don’t want anyone to hurt themselves or risk injury just to reach a specific goal. Again, it’s very important that you choose a workout routine that fits your current fitness level.
Also, there are 31 days in the month of August. If you need a rest day or a cheat day, take one.
Want to take your efforts to the next level this month? Commit to eating clean. It’s not about only eating healthy food or being “perfect” with your eating habits. It’s about cutting back on junk food, soda, processed foods, sugary foods, etc., and eating whole, healthy foods 80% of the time (or more). You’ll have a better chance of seeing results on the scale, and you’ll have more energy during your workouts if you fuel your body with healthy food.
