12 Days of Fitness 2018: Day 12 – 31 Days

December 22, 2018 0 Comments

(This is part 12 of a 12 part series to provide you with some helpful health and fitness tips over the holiday season)

Today’s post I share with you something I saw in an article from my friends at My Fitness Pal earlier this year. It’s a challenge of sorts, 31 days to be exact, that you can start anytime, anywhere. All you have to do is be willing to follow it, stick to it, and keep a really good attitude. When the New Year hits, everyone gets all jazzed up about turning a new leaf. So no matter how trivial or mundane the task may seem always understand that little things add up to big things and success breeds more success. Give it a whirl and see if you are able to catch some success.

  1. Drink a glass of water first thing
  2. Take the stairs
  3. Prepare a vegetable in a new healthy way
  4. Put your phone away at meals
  5. Walk 500 extra steps today
  6. Log your water intake today
  7. Take stock of your progress and repeat one task from this week
