30 Day Fitness Challenge

30 Day Fitness Challenge – I Am Working Out Daily for 30 Days

I have been feeling pretty blah recently, so I’ve decided to work out every day for the next 30 days.

I’ve been feeling bloated and I’ve gained weight this spring. I am working through treadmill and bodyweight workouts. I am updating this post daily as my progress continues.

Starting Weight

I’m currently at 155.2 pounds. I haven’t tracked my weight since August, but at that time I was 148.6. It’s only 6.6 pounds. It’s pretty significant to me because I see it in the mirror and in photos and how some of my clothes are fitting.

I started with a body weight workout while I was watching tv in the morning. We took Hank on a long walk before 9 a.m. and I wanted to chill out before I got on the treadmill.

I juuuust completed the monthly iFit challenge, so I figured I’d select something I’m comfortable with. Once I got on the treadmill, I did workout number 2 & 3 of the Bora Bora Bootcamp Series. I completed nine full rounds of this series in 2022. So it’s kinda my favorite.

How to Stay Motivated

Staying motivated can be a challenge at times, but there are several strategies you can try to maintain your motivation. Here are some tips:

  • Set clear goals: Define specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound SMART goals. Having a clear vision of what you want to achieve will help you stay focused and motivated.
  • Break it down: Break your goals into smaller, manageable tasks. This makes them less overwhelming and allows you to track your progress more easily. Celebrate small victories along the way to stay motivated.
  • Find your “why”: Understand why your goals are important to you. Identifying your underlying motivations and the benefits you will gain from achieving your goals can provide you with a sense of purpose and drive.
  • Create a positive environment: Surround yourself with positive influences, supportive people, and an inspiring workspace. Remove distractions that hinder your progress and create an environment that promotes focus and productivity.
  • Visualize success: Use visualization techniques to imagine yourself successfully achieving your goals. Visualizing the desired outcome can boost your motivation and make it more likely to become a reality.
  • Maintain a routine: Establish a consistent routine that aligns with your goals. Having a structured schedule helps you stay disciplined and ensures that you allocate time and energy to work on your objectives.
  • Seek inspiration: Find sources of inspiration that resonate with you. Read books, listen to podcasts, watch motivational videos, or connect with individuals who have achieved similar goals. Their stories and insights can keep you motivated during challenging times.
  • Take care of yourself: Physical and mental well-being play a crucial role in maintaining motivation. Prioritize self-care activities such as exercise, proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and relaxation. When you feel energized and balanced, it becomes easier to stay motivated.
  • Track your progress: Keep a record of your achievements, no matter how small. Seeing the progress you’ve made can be incredibly motivating and reinforce your belief in your abilities. You can read more about how I lost 9.4 pounds in 3 months.
  • Embrace failure as a learning opportunity: Understand that setbacks and failures are a natural part of the journey. Instead of letting them discourage you, view them as valuable learning experiences that can help you grow and improve. Use failures as opportunities to adjust your approach and move forward.

Remember that motivation may fluctuate over time, and that’s normal. It’s important to stay committed to your goals, even when your motivation wanes. By implementing these strategies and finding what works best for you, you can cultivate a mindset that keeps you motivated on your path to success.
