Default Challenge Yourself for the Week of April 17-23, 2011

Good luck this week!!

Weekly challenges are a great way to stay accountable on your goals over shorter terms. You choose your goal for the week. It may or may not be sustainable over the long term. If a challenge/goal is not working after one week, re-evaluate and modify or move on. If you're thriving and you like it, feel free to reuse goals week to week as you integrate the healthy habits you develop with your routine!

Let us know your goal for this week and be sure to check in along the way and at the end to let us know how you're doing!

Feel free to tell us about how your goal went last week too!

[ july - august ]

My challenge this week (starting tomorrow, I'm on a train right now)

Get up and work out in the morning on M/T/W/T so I can study in the evenings and have no excuses on either!

17: X (was traveling)
18: ✓ (C25K W8D1, Arc trainer)
19: X slept in
20 X
21 X
22 X
23 X

Well, this goal was a giant fail for me. Being a morning exerciser is still something I would like to be in theory, but it's so difficult to put into practice, especially with my looming licensing exam! I'll have to figure out a more realistic goal for next week.

[ july - august ]

-workout 5 days
-80 oz of water per day
-finish P1 strong!

April 17: check, check, check!
April 18: well, I may need to modify my goal for the week...took a major fall at work today and don't think will be doing any high impact workouts as I have a very bad ankle right now! Maybe I can be ok with pilates this week, though.
