This is just a general guideline. You will not be kicked out if you follow your own plan. The basic idea is to keep track of your daily fitness routine by posting it in this community. As long as you do that, you are in community guidelines always.
It's very close to 28 day plan only this is a 12 week fitness challenge (Why 12 weeks?) which is more focused on fitness than weight loss.
Everyday you should post with an update on the following: exercise, food, water, post, fit challenge, & mention what day you're on. Beside each of those (except day), mark if you think you did poor, fair, or very well (0, 1, or 2). It should look something like this:
Exercise: 2 - Jogged for an hour outside.
Food: 1 - Ate well all day except my friend's birthday cake.
Water: 2 - 8 full glasses!
Post: 2 - I'm posting. This is all or nothing.
Fit Challenge: 2 - Challenged myself to jog further than ever before! This is all or nothing.
The Fit Challenge is the challenge to find &/or do something new each day that makes you a fitter person. Say you're bad about eating cheese on everything but you didn't eat it today - that's a fit challenge success. Or say that you found out that jumping on the trampoline can be lots of fun - that's a fit challenge success. Make yourself a little better each day at a time.
There's no secret pill or anything to losing weight or becoming a fitter person other than to just DO IT. It's pretty simple & easy but people like to complicate it.
So our posts have dropped off, most likely to the fade of new years resolutions and busy schedules. I know I've slacked off horribly. So I thought I'd do a post about what I *have* done lately, rather than dwelling on all the things I've not done.
I think taking a step back has really helped me figure out what I need to work on, what I need to focus on making better. So I'll be back tomorrow. A whole new day! A whole new list of things to make better. Even though I suppose technically I never left.
Here's what I'm going to be focusing on:
- Exercise 6 out of 7 days of the week.
- Eat vegetables before every meal.
- Drink 4 full sized glasses of water.
- Take medicine EVERYDAY.
- Post EVERYDAY.
So I have failed on both tracking calories and exercise, thanks to an insane week. This is my first week back to school for the spring semester, my whole work week changed & my girlfriend got a new job which completely shifts her schedule. But rather than focus on what I haven't done, let's see what I did manage...
Hello fellow Fits (LOL)
Oh man. I haven't died off just yet. I've been so sadly busy. My days off seem more hectic than my days of working. But! My pants are fitting a tiny bit better.
Anyway, I'm just checking in. I'm still doing well. Still trying to be fitter. I'm struggling with updating when I get home at 11pm though. The urge to just come home after work & fall asleep is more prominent than the urge to update a community, sadly. But hopefully that will sway once more time passes. And maybe exercising will help too!
Stay positive! <3
