  • Alright! Let’s step this up a notch:)

    I have been locked in a sound booth for about 3 weeks, although I still have work to do, It’s time to squeeze fitness back into my life. I have been eating really well, which is great. (except for yesterday…friends birthday party equals= a few beer and deep fried food…oops:)

    So now the challenge. Starting today I am hiking a local mountain called Grouse, and I am going to a yoga class for 7 days in a row! Hike and yoga everyday for 7 days. I know what my body can handle, and if I just hiked for a week, or just did yoga, it wouldn’t be as big of a challenge. For me, this is a challenge. I completed my first day and I feel great. A bit tired since I was out kinda late last night, but I am ready to give’r. Check out a yoga studio near you, they usually have an amazing introductory deal.For example I paid $20 to give yoga a try at a new place near me.

    What is a challenge to you? We are all at different levels in our fitness. For my friend Lindy, a challenge for her would probably be running 25km a day, for Sequel’s founder Brendan Brazier, he works out 8 hours a day when he is in training mode. However, depending on what level you are at, a challenge could be a 30 minute walk everyday, swimming a few laps before work, doing stairs in your apartment, or going to an aerobics class at your local gym.

    What could you do to challenge yourself for one week? You can do it!!! I find that if I set the bar high for a short amount of time, it is easier to get back in the flow of making it a regular, habitual thing.
    I need to get back in the flow of consistent training, no matter what the day planner looks like. I sleep better, my skin is better, I am happier. Plus, showing ourselves discipline is a huge confidence booster! I heard it takes 21 days to turn something into a habit, so go for 7 and you may keep on rolling from there:)Me hiking this morning
