We’re starting up a new community challenge/support team for physical fitness!
How it works
Each Friday morning a Fit Friday post will appear on GBG. Throughout the day you can either post to your own blog and link here or post in the comments of the Fit Friday post answering these four questions-
- How did you get moving this week?
- What was your go-to healthy food item or meal?
- What song got you moving?
- What are your plans for next week?
#1 can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it.
Monday- I walked for 45 minutes on the treadmill
- 40lb x10
- 40lb x10
- bodyweight x20
And so on.
#2 is the same. Tell us you were really digging oranges that week or offer us a great recipe for broiled tilapia. It’s up to you. Keep in mind that ‘healthy’ is relative to people. What Barbara eats may be too fatty for Jean to be healthy and what Jean eats may be too carby for Barbara to be healthy. Please, no “diet preaching”. We’re here to support each other in making steps not to evangelize.
#3 name the song and link to it if possible.
#4 if you don’t know, it’s fine! But having it out there has a way of keeping us accountable. The way I manage my workouts is to set one up for the week and repeat it all week. This is where I would list that set up and the next week I’d report on how I did.
If you only want to participate in #1 and ditch the rest, that’s fine. None of these are mandatory. It’s all meant for us to have some fun, get some support, learn about something new, and hold ourselves accountable.
