Monthly Challenge: Work Out Every Day

Monthly Challenge: Work Out Every Day

December is here, and with it the unhealthiest time of the year!

The most wonderful, yes, but also the unhealthiest.

Since I have decided to challenge myself to try something new every month, or to try and complete a certain task, December's challenge is going to be all about health, wellness and fitness!

The Challenge is simple and nicely accompanies my 5 tips for holiday fitness:

For the month of December, I will work out every day.


Working out every day doesn't mean that I have to hit the gym, but it also means I have to go above and beyond my regular activity for at LEAST 20 minutes to get my body moving.

Here are my rules:

  • my daily walks to and from the office don't count - BUT a power walk on the weekend does!
  • I don't have to hit the gym, a HIIT workout or some yoga in my living room is fine (as long as I am focused on it)
  • NO BREAKS! The intensity can vary but consistency is the key here.
  • I should try to do the 20 minutes every day regardless and STILL find time to get to the gym (I'm skeptical about this one, but I'll see what I can do)
  • Yes. I have to work out on Christmas.

I'll be checking in mid way through the month to let you know how it's going, and will provide a recap on December 31st! 

Wish me luck!
