I’ve been doing the same workouts for quite a while, and I’m starting to get bored with them. So much so that I’ve been putting them off. The problem is that I really need to do something physical every day, so I’ve decided that for the health month (labeled as health month by Jon and Missy Butcher in Lifebook Membership) I’m going to do a 30-day fun fitness challenge. I know there are 31 days in January, and I’ll find something to do on the 31st day, but the 30-day calendar is so pretty that I didn’t want to ruin it.
The fact is that I usually create goals like lose weight or eat better or drink more water for health month, but this time I want to do something fun with my month. There are a few reasons that I decided to do a fun fitness challenge instead of just the standard health goals.
The Fun Fitness Challenge Will Help Me Hit Some Other Goals
This fun fitness challenge is going to help me tackle one of the habits I set out for the month, which is getting at least 8000 steps per day. Sitting on a computer all day working means you don’t get many steps in unless you consciously get up and get moving. I do take a morning walk daily, where I get about 5000 steps in easily, but some days I’m on my butt much more than I would like. And if I’m doing anything that requires bodyweight or weight workouts, I don’t tend to do much stepping. So, this month’s fun fitness challenge is going to help me get up and get moving!
I also want to mix up my workout more. I’ve been doing the longevity routine and a Wii fitness video I have for so long that I’m bored of them. I need to find some new things that I like that motivate me to get up and workout.
Lastly, I tend to be very rigid with my routine where I believe I need to do the same thing over and over again. That’s a character trait I would like to break. This fun fitness challenge will hopefully help me realize that I can mix it up and still get the results I’m looking for.
My 30-Day Fun Fitness Challenge Template
I made my template with Canva. Creating these templates is just another way I plan to use Canva going forward in 2021.
If you want to download a blank version of this template, you can do that here. Then I recommend you check out Canva for yourself and you can fill in each day with your own text. Or just print it off and write in it.
It’s pretty cold here, but I wanted to include some outdoor activities because I love going outdoors. So, I included a hike, a 90-minute walk, and badminton to get me outside.
On my first day, I wasn’t too creative with the stairs, but as I went along, I started to think about workout routines and what I might like. Then I realized that there are a lot of workout channels on YouTube that I’ve never checked out and I might as well check out as many as I can during this 30-day fun fitness challenge.
I found an article that listed the top workout channels on YouTube and included some of them in my challenge.
I also thought of some people from the past that I’ve never worked out with, such as Richard Simmons and Jane Fonda.
Then I remembered a workout video I used to do as a kid all the time with Alyssa Milano (I spelled her name wrong in the template!). I loved that workout. So, I included it in my challenge.
I noticed after the fact that I included the stairs again on day 7 at half the amount of day 1. It must have been my subconscious mind’s way of saying that I wouldn’t want to do much on that day, so I’ll leave it alone.
Hopefully, I will come out of this challenge with either a love for mixing it up daily or a brand-new workout routine that I want to do daily.
I still plan on doing a workout video game from Wii that I like because it alternatives between ab, arm, and leg workouts. But I only plan on doing that for 15 minutes a day because there’s only so much time in a day!
