I’m trying something new. Some of my clients asked for a challenge, so I created Healthy Habits Challenges for the rest of this year. The first challenge starts this month. We’re doing a 21-day AB Challenge and a Water Challenge. Why not a 30 day challenge? Because it takes 21 days to create a habit and most people fall off after 2 weeks, so let’s see if 3 weeks works.
I’ve posted the 21-Day AB Challenge here and on my other social media sites:
July is all about Abs and Water
AB challenge: Review the 21-Day Challenge and choose the track that works for your fitness level and experience. You can always change tracks if the one you chose is too easy or too difficult. But only change once. Choices are: Baby Steps, Off and On, Warrior and Beast.
Just follow the challenge calendar. Simple. It’s by day rather than date so you can start as late as July 11th! If you want to compete just send me a message via FB post or email by July 11th. Not only will you receive bragging rights for completing your track, but you will be entered into a drawing for cool prizes! No pictures necessary, but they are welcomed. You must post by FB (or send email) your challenge day achievements every day for 21 only days. I’ll announce the winners the first week of August. This is the honor system people so please honor yourself and others by not cheating. Let’s have a little fun creating Healthy Habits!
Water challenge: Try to hit your water goal each day for the next 21 days. The easiest way to figure out if you are consuming enough water is to divide your weight in half. Take that number and drink that many ounces per day. (example: if Bob weighs 160 lbs half his weight is 80 lbs. Bob should drink 80 ounces of water daily.) That’s two Super Big Gulps or 2.5 liters of soda. Of course every body is different. My tummy can’t handle much at one time, so I have to sip water throughout the day unless I’m working out. Start slow and build up to your goal.
A tip to check for sufficient water consumption is to pinch the skin on your finger. If the skin stays pinched for more than a second, you need to drink up buttercup!
