40 Consecutive Days of Fitness

The List includes: 40 consecutive days of fitness (and I am thinking dancing may count)

When I wrote the list, I didn’t know how hard that would be! I just was hoping that this phrase I copied from a Lululemon was true:

A daily hit of athletic-induced endorphins gives you the power to make better decisions,

helps you be at peace with yourself, and offsets stress.

I have started down the path of accomplishing this “thing” about four times since the end of June (when I realized that all the good food the bon appetit category was catching up with me). I am finding that I am more of an excercise 5 out of 7 days kind of girl.

Some quotes from the draft blog posts that have never seen the light of day:

  • “Okay, so I didn’t commit via blog to this one on Day 1. Instead I made it to Day 7 before admitting I am on the path to 40 STRAIGHT days.” (made it 9 before I took a two day hiatus).
  • “Walk a Mile…that doesn’t sound to hard. Walk a mile every day in August.” Actually averaged 2 miles a day – just only made it about 22 days. But I started hot yoga again.
  • “Did I really think this idea would be FABULOUS? Maybe if I can keep up the routine, I will look FABULOUS!”
I do have to say that I have seen success. I have enjoyed walking with my neighbor Vickie, had some great 5:30 am workouts with the group at Victory Get Fit, sweated profusely at Bikram Hot Yoga — all combined has lead to two inches off the waistline, .5 inches from the hips and an argument with the scale. And the best part: My favorite jeans are comfortable. FABULOUS! So back to the quote — I am less stressed and more at peace with myself. (I didn’t want to have an internal argument about giving up the food I am writing about – or my dark chocolate vices).
Time to go pack my walking clothes for tomorrow while Bailie is in the pool. Good night!
