Jenn's 30 Day Challenge

“No Matter What, Sweat Everyday.” - UnderArmour

Week 1

I have decided, I am going to! Thus, my 30 day workout challenge! I was terrified to start this challenge that Stephie suggested I do as I was worried I would fail. After a nice long motivational talk with her, there is no way I will fail. So here I am on day three of my challenge, I never thought I could work out three days in a row. I am determined! I will do 30 days and set new habits. Day three was much easier than day one was, and I’m sure as I keep going it will get easier and easier. I’m doing this for me because I deserve to feel good. I have been doing a lot of treadmill exercises, the first couple days I did a 200 calorie workout in 20 minutes. That was really hard! I struggled and parts of the exercise I had to hold onto the sides to help me. By day three of doing the same exercise I was able to do it without holding onto anything, I could have kept going! I like changing it up though, so I went to a Zumba class for a fun workout. This is only week one, and next week I plan on pushing myself to do 30 minute workouts. It feels great exercising again. It has been 5 days and I can really feel my energy rising! I still don’t really look forward to working out, but I look forward to the feeling afterward. I feel fantastic after! When I have a really busy day I fit in time to exercise after Noah has gone to bed.

Week 2

This week was a harder week for me, I had a personal physical issue that limited my workout routine. I still made time because I am taking this challenge very seriously. In the first week I felt like I was counting each and every single day, and forcing myself. I feel weird now if I don’t work out. This week I also started losing track on which day it was, because it is becoming a routine! I am feeling less bloated and my legs are feeling tighter, my shins look a little more toned. The biggest difference is my energy. Even though this week I wasn’t feeling the greatest, doing a 10 minute workout would really make a difference. This week was a lot less exercise compared to what I did in the first week. I tried doing 10 minute sessions of yoga, stretching, lots of cleaning, and Zumba one of the days. Every day I made of point of doing something! Now that I’m feeling 100% again I am so excited to get back into harder workouts. Most importantly I am feeling empowered!

I am so excited to share with all of you the difference 30 days of exercise has done for me. I’m halfway there, I can do this... and so can you!!
