A New Challenge: #ginmovechallenge
So it’s time for me to challenge myself again. Back in April, Dave (my husband) and I did a health challenge to help us loose weight and see who could loose the most body fat (by %). Dave won and I came in third. Since then I have lost over 16 lbs and I feel great.
For the last couple of years I have consistently been going to different exercise classes 3 to 4 times a week at Freestone Recreation Center here in Gilbert, AZ. I love their instructors, and I really enjoy working out in a class environment. You get to know the other ladies (and men) and support each other. And I get accountability to go, which I totally need.
I am a website designer so I spend most of my days behind a computer and not moving much. My body does not like it, I have back, shoulder and arm issues :(. So I know how important moving, getting massages and seeing a chiropractor is.
So I am challenging myself to do 30 minutes or more of exercise a day for the next 5 weeks in order give my body the movement it deserves. It will be doing classes, walking, swimming and biking.
on Day 1 (today) I went for a 45 minute walk as I will be missing my usual Monday afternoon Bootcamp class as I am going to see Shania Twain in concert in my girlfriends! 😉
I will be writing a post here and there with some updates as I will be tracking my weight (my next goal is to loose another 7 lbs) and measurements, and I will be posting on my Instagram daily with the hashtag #ginmovechallenge to keep me accountable! If you want to join me, post and use the hashtag.
