Thank you so much for joining our BWLW’s January Exercise Challenge!
We heard from many ladies in the BWLW sisterhood who were unable to join our December Exercise Challenge, so we decided to focus on exercise for our first accountability challenge of 2021. The fun starts on January 1st.
Goal: 5 Days of Exercise Each Week – Include the Exercise of the Day in your workout.
Exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes per workout.
- Work at your own pace, but challenge yourself to work hard as well.
- Do what works for you: Feel free to work out more than 5 days a week if that is your usual routine. 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 the “5 Days a Week” goal. Again, it’s very important that you chose a goal and exercise routine that fits your current level of fitness.
- Stay Hydrated: Drink at least 64 oz of water each day. (If you typically drink much more than that or much less because you have medical limitations (due to kidney issues or other ailments), that’s fine too.)
- Rest Days: On your rest days, take 15-20 minutes to stretch, do yoga, do pilates, or take a relaxing walk. Do something physical but relaxing.
Exercise of the Day: You’ll find an exercise listed each day. Include this move in your workout. Do a minimum of 2 sets of 8 reps. If you don’t recognize an exercise, look up it up on Youtube for proper form. You’ll also find videos for modifying many of these moves.
Check-in Every Day and Stay Accountable: Visit our Facebook page or Instagram account every evening and leave a comment to join the daily check-in, Jan 1st thru Jan 30th. The post will appear at 6:30pm. (If you work out in the evening, check-in after you’ve completed your workout.)
Want to avoid holiday weight gain? Cut back on junk food, soda, processed foods, sugary foods, etc., 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 walks.
