Welcome to Week 2 of the 60-Day SPRING FITNESS CHALLENGE!
Our theme this week is: DETERMINATION.
In Week 1, our theme was ACTION. In Week 2, we’re going to continue to take action and we’re going to add DEDICATION into the mix. It’s easy to start any challenge with energy & enthusiasm, but often we see energy levels drop off as move further into it. If we start to lose interest or get tired, we call upon our secret weapon—DEDICATION—to keep us fighting strong for success!
It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently. —Anthony Robbins
Goals for the Week
The challenge this week is going to be to keep our energy levels up and keep our eyes on the prize! While this goal ties all of us together, we also have our own unique individual goals. My main goal for the next 60 days is to lose 8 pounds. Each week I also share my weekly individual goals.
Discipline is an exercise of repetition. Not once or twice but until completed. —Unknown
Here are my goals for this week:
- Five minute meditation each morning before I do anything else
- Twenty minutes of non-stop movement each morning (stretching, light cardio, light weights)
- Yoga (Wednesday & Friday)
- No fried food (except for stir fry)
- No eating out (I am joining my friend & fellow challenge participant, Brad, in his challenge to stop eating out so much in April)
As I’ve mentioned, I’ve embarked on plenty of fitness challenges in the past. Some have been successful, but the majority have not. Many of my efforts failed because of my lack of accountability. When I know that no one is watching, I tend to slip—cheat a little bit and it’s a slippery slope from there. This challenge is different because I am 100% accountable to the other challenge participants and to my entire Evolution You community!
Here are my Week 1 vs. Week 2 “Accountability Pictures”. It’s still scary, but I know that this is a necessary element of my journey.
Anything I’ve ever done that ultimately was worthwhile…initially scared me to death. —Betty Bender
I can see some minor differences already, but I am definitely going to step it up in Week 2 to produce even greater results! Remember, if you want to post your own Accountability Pictures, head over to the forum and get to posting!
Call to Action
“I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen” —Frank Lloyd Wright
As we move into the 2nd week of our Spring Fitness Challenge, let’s focus intently on what we hope to accomplish. Creating positive change can be challenging, but we can always look within to find the determination to move us forward. Some days will be harder than others. It’s alright if we fall down once in awhile; the critical thing is that we get back up—every single time.
Remember that our theme this week is determination. Write the word DETERMINATION in big letters and put it somewhere that you will see it every day—the bathroom mirror, your dashboard, the refrigerator door.
I can’t wait to watch you make great things happen this week!
In love & light,
