A New Adventure AKA Challenge Time!

Tomorrow I am starting a new fitness challenge.

Originally it was in my mind that I was going to do a 48 day challenge, as my husband is being sent away for some probably super fun military training for 6-7 weeks and I figured that would be a good pastime for me, as well as something to accomplish while he is away.

As I was writing out my plan, and as always I get super anxious and excited about starting these challenges. If you have followed me over the years – though its been a while- I have done a few challenges like the 30 day squat challenge, 30 day plank challenge, 30 day Barre workout challenges as well as many eating and no drinking( man it sucks) challenges.  So, with this challenge, as usually – I want to start right away…. like right now.

I obviously need to learn and exercise(exercise… hahaha!) a little patience. It’s a work in progress, but instead of a 48 day challenge, I will be starting a 60 day challenge. This gives me essentially 8 weeks to give it my all and see what I can accomplish.

While I have already written out what my daily fitness goals will be – I am not going to be sharing them before hand. This is because I might be changing them as I go along. I have written out my daily goals as a guideline. I am going to push myself, I am going to work hard, but I am also going to listen to my body and do what is right for that day. If I have a little extra energy at the gym – maybe I will do a little more. If my body is telling me no – I will listen to it and take a rest day.

Along with fitness, I will also be working on some eating goals. I have two kids, my husband will be gone for most of this challenge, I am hoping that this will go smoothly and I won’t be hiding in my room binging on a bag of chips because I haven’t eaten all day due to crazy kids sucking all my energy and motivations since they woke up. 😛

I am going to attempt to cut out all POP, JUNK FOOD, TAKE OUT, FAST FOOD, PIZZA, etc. I am going to attempt no eating out – however If I do take the kids out – I will choose wisely and healthily. I feel lucky that my daughters favourite restaurant is Swiss chalet and they have a pretty good selection of healthier foods to choose from.

I will be taking my body measurements, and I hopefully will take some before photos. Both of which I may or may not share at the end of this challenge. I am hoping, and will be working hard to see results. Big results or small results – i don’t care, I am just looking to spend the next 60 days working towards a better version of me. A hobby to keep me busy and something “ME” to focus on.

I hope that you will follow my journey over the next 60 days as I post pictures and updates on how things are going. This is my accountability, my motivation to keep myself going. Without you, I might deteriorate into a couch potato eating junk and not doing anything to improve myself. So please pop onto my feed once in a while and like a photo, leave me a comment, or if you haven’t seen me update for a bit – ask me what the heck am I doing?! 😛

    Listen to Metallica when you work out it works for me. Once the head it right the body will follow. One other thing if it doesn’t hurt it’s not working. Maybe the last one is because I’m 57 and everything hurts. Good luck behind you 100%.
