October Challenge - 2018 - Week 2
Even though I failed this challenge the first week, I decided not to just give up and quit. This is a journey and the ultimate goal is to lose weight. Part of doing so, is to create good habits that will lead to a healthier lifestyle and natural weight loss.
As such, I'm using this challenge to create a habit of at least 30 active minutes each and every day. Whether I work out or not, I should have at least 30 active minutes. So, on Monday, I picked the reigns back up, brushed myself off, and got back to work. It was a successful week.
Wednesday, I barely met goal. I don't remember which day it was, but there was one day that I had completely forgotten to get up out of my chair and be active. Then I was chatting with Beck that evening where she mentioned active minutes which reminded me to get up. So I barely got the active minutes for that day, but I got them. That's the important thing.
I'm hoping that eventually I won't need reminders and it will become a habit to get up every hour or so and be active. I have a desk job so when I get focused on work, or hobbies even, hours fly by without me even standing up much. Perhaps I'll start setting a timer to remind me each hour to at least get up and stretch. We'll see how that works.
Feeling a little more like a badass this week!
