Challenge week 1

It’s the first week of the 46 Day Challenge, and that exactly what it’s been.  A Challenge.  See, this past week or so has been very busy for me.  At work, personal, business, social, everything.  So finding time to get in some exercise has been tough.

But that’s the thing about the 46 Day Challenge.  It’s not about finding time.  It’s about making time.

You don’t find time for important things in life, you make time for them.  So, it takes a little forethought about how your day is going to go.  You know you have something in the evening, then you make time in the morning or at lunch to go for a walk.  Your morning is jam packed with meetings, then reserve a little time after work to blow off steam before dinner.  You have no idea how your day is going to go, then you better get moving early in the day to avoid any surprise pit falls later in the day.

So here’s how I’ve been doing.  How about you?

3/9 – Walk 1/2 mile
3/10 – Walk 1/2 mile
3/11 – Run 2.5 miles
3/12 – Run 4 miles
3/13 – Ziplining 2 hours
3/14 – Run 2.1 miles
3/15 – Walk 2.5 miles
3/16 – Run 3 miles

  1. I’ve been using this tool to keep track of my workouts this year. I’m trying to run 1100 miles in 2011, and it’s perfect for keeping track by the day, week, month, and year. LOVE!

  2. i’ve been doing the 46 day challenge, thanks to your inspiration, + it’s going great. some days i rock out a full yoga class, while some days it’s just a 10 minute brisk walk with the dog, but that’s just what i need. i set a goal about a month ago to do at least 30 minutes of exercise every day, + i found that when i didn’t succeed, i felt guilty. this way, i’m setting myself up for success. thanks for the idea!

  3. Amy, I’m so happy that this has been a successful inspiration for you! It’s all about knowing your limits, while still forming a healthy habit! High five!
