Work out for at least 25 days out of 31 – Your choice of exercise. Zumba, walking, running, exercise classes, boot camp, HIIT, CrossFit, yoga… YOU name it. We suggest at least 20 minutes of exercise per day on your workout days if you are a beginner (low impact, beginner level exercises). If you are intermediate to advanced, you’ll likely be doing 30 minutes to an hour (or more) of exercise each day. *Work at your own pace.
You may want to have a 3-ring binder and a notebook or journal for this challenge – In your binder, you can keep your 31-day tracking calendar and fitness worksheets. You’ll also need paper or a notebook to record your answers to the questions in the calendar. On workout days, dedicate a few minutes a day to completing your worksheet. Take the time to document and celebrate your hard work. We also suggest that you choose a binder with a clear pocket in the front. Print out your favorite motivational quote or an inspiring image and put it on the cover for motivation.
Eat as CLEAN as possible.– You can’t exercise away a bad diet. Cut back on junk food, soda, fast food, and sugary foods in August, and eat more whole foods. You’ll have a better chance of seeing results on the scale, and you may have more energy during your workouts. Food is fuel, so give your body the nutrients and vitamins it needs, not empty calories.
