{ Fit ME month challenge }


Get Ready, Get Set, GO!


So, here's my plan. {Click on image to get a larger view}. A workout planned for and scheduled everyday....a helpful tip...do it with a friend or pre-sign up. I'm much less likely to BAIL if someone is waiting for ME or I have forked over $$ for it. Each week I want to increase the amount of time and the intensity of my workouts. Oh, and I'd like to get rid of 5 lbs while I'm at.

Here are some specifics. I am going to use my Fit ME notepad - but you can jot it down in your planner or use a google calendar to plan & track for your daily workouts. The key is to do something. Even if it is just a 30 minute walk or jog. EVERYDAY.

I am going to use my free one month of yoga card (that I won back in January) so I am going to try to fit in as many yoga classes as possible in August. FREE.

I signed up for a 3 week Boot Camp Class at a fitness center here that will likely kick my butt (thus I will need lots of the aforementioned yoga). It's 2 nights a week for 1/5 hours per class - it begins August 12th. $125

I am going to spend a weekend in Moab with the girls (all moms) in mid-August doing lots of yoga & lots of hiking (I won't discuss the excessive margarita drinking that will likely occur). Fun, Fun!

I signed up today for a 1/2 Marathon this fall. Need to start running again. No more excuses. Enough said. $65.

Oh and did I mention I'd like my legs to look like this...


Stay tuned for my daily workouts, fitness tips, some great fitness related giveaways & more this month. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Whose with ME for the next 31 days? Join ME for a chance to win a LobotoME Fit ME notepad. Just leave ME a comment and let ME know how you are going to have a Fit ME month.

Tune in on Monday for a BIG, BIG Fit ME GIVEAWAY!

ps - I'll be posting my workouts, etc. on Twitter.

Please count me in. I would love to have legs like that as well :) I'm dedicating myself to workout at least 5 times a week this month!

Naomi said...

I'm contemplating signing up for a mommy-centric core fitness class to get rid of the baby pudge.

Lu said...

Count me in! I am trying to lose baby weight and I have been running on my own for a few weeks now. Being the first of my friends to have a child, no one else is motivated to run with me or workout at all! It is nice to have other people out there for "support" even if it is just over the internet!

And that chart looks pretty nifty....

Sara G said...

I've started running 3x's a week and eating better. I need to do more, your ideas are great! THanks for the giveaway--I need some extra help!

Leigh said...

Oh Oh this is just what I've been looking for. I started the couch to 5k plan (only on week 2 *wheeze wheeze*) but it's hard for me to keep track of what part of the work out I'm doing, and what I'm supposed to be doing next. My regular mom planner is already too crammed full :(

Brooke said...

I'm really struggling to get in good shape and mixing up my workouts regularly. I'm kind of training for my first 5K. I only every started jogging a few months ago and I'm thrilled to be up to 20 minutes!!! This could really help me keep track and keep trying!

Rachel said...

I'd like to join you too. My workouts are already planned pretty much since I have a marathon plan- but biggest thing is taking the time to stretch afterwords and I can really feel a difference if I don't.

See you on twitter!
