3 WEEK: 3 MOVE CHALLENGE – DAY 1

As promised I started the 3week : 3day challenge this morning! Yes as soon as I got up this morning it was down to business. I decided to split my workout up into sets:
• 25 sit ups
• 8 push ups
• 25 sit ups
• 8 push ups
• 25 sit ups
• 10 push ups
• 25 sit ups

REMEMBER!! You don’t have to do your daily workout routine all at the one time, you can break it up over your day as you please, this is just easier for me as the morning before work is the most time I have in the day! For example you could do 50 sit ups in the morning, 13 push ups at lunch, 50 sit ups at dinner and 13 push ups in the evening. Do what suits you best, you will still reap the same results! Designing your workout plan to suit your timetable is essential in order to help you stick to the plan and not miss a day!

Don’t forget to take the stairs at any chance you get today, that ELEVATOR IS YOUR ENEMY! 🙂 Lucky for me I work on the fifth floor of a very big building, all the more walking!

Get in those pints of lemon water too! They will leave you feeling energised , rejuvenated and it is a great alkaline booster, improves digestion, cleanses your liver, boosts your immune system, helping to fight infections and provides the body with antioxidants.

I was running a little late this morning with my new routine in place so may not of drank my morning pint of lemon water but there’s always the rest of the day to squeeze it in! Its never to late! If you haven’t started already you always can now! 🙂

Tips to get you exercising!

motivation-by-shirokazan

1. Join a GYM: There is no point joining if you are not going to go, so before you join, make a promise to yourself to go and plan when you will go. Try planning to go before work or on your way home from work so that it becomes apart of routine.

2. Plan and set challenges for yourself: Be REALISTIC. Set goals that are achievable and that you will strive to work towards.

3. Buy a bike: Use your new wheels to bring you to the shop, work, gym or even just for a cycle. Cycling is a great exercise and by swapping the car for your bike for one journey a day will make a difference.

4. Join a team or class, whether it’s a work team or a new class in the gym, it will have you working out and socializing at the same time!

5. Start a new hobby: Even the likes of knitting or weeding your garden is exercise!

6. Buy a resistance band: These are great, exercise in front of the telly or anywhere around the house.

7. Do it with a buddy: If you have a friend doing it with you, you both have each others support for those times when your feeling less motivated.

8. Think POSITIVE! : Nothing is easy to do without positive thinking and a little motivation. To get you motivated and ready to get exercising, find a reason or motivation of why you want to do it in the first place. When you need a little motivation to exercise think of the reasons for doing it and the outcome you desire. If this doesn’t work, you always have your buddy 🙂 .
