Guided Fitness’ weekly challenge begins tomorrow. This week, 250 minutes of movement this week! For those of us who find ourselves not moving enough, this is a great way to keep track for the week and find more moments to add in movement!
Notice how this is not “exercise” or “cardio” specific. I just want people to make an effort to move some more! Whether it is a class, a walk, doing squats at your desk, anything that has your body moving around.
250 Minutes of movement for the week!
250 seems like a huge number, but if we look at it on a daily breakdown, it is only an increase of 35ish minutes. Completely doable!
So let’s get ready to move, #MovementChallenge. Try a new group fitness class, take the stairs, or simply dance around the house 😉 The possibilities are endless.
This is Guided Fitness‘ first weekly challenge. A weekly series that includes a challenge based on health and wellness. These challenges are created to be inclusive, and guess what? You can work these challenges in with your home life, get the kids involved too!
Drink a minimum of 2L of water EVERYDAY!
Seems simple enough… It is a great place for us to start our challenges. If you normally get that much a day, try adding another 500mL. Water has so many health benefits including energy boosting, healthier looking complexion, keeping you regular… So many benefits. This time of year with all those resolutions, water can help curb appetite, especially if you find yourself emotionally eating.
Keep Yourself Accountable
Post your water intake on social media. #waterchallenge Use an app like MyFitnessPal to keep track and share your success (and trials) with your friends. Get them involved too. Why not get the kids involved too? Create a sticker board at home for the kids. Every time they drink a cup of water they get a sticker. 8 stickers means they reached the goal. Heck, I want a sticker board! It is a great visual for accomplishments.
So let’s get started on this challenge. Be sure to check out our Facebook Page for updates! Wonder what kind of fun we will have next week 😉
