It’s finally here! The last day of my fitness challenge. And upon publication of this blog and conclusion of the challenge it’s Dec. 31. The new year is upon us.

We’re coming down to the wire. It’s been an active past couple of days, so we’ll dial it back today. Today’s mission…go for a walk and read two fitness articles or blogs. It’s a day of learning and reflection. Try to squeeze in at least a 20 minute walk. Go to the park. Around the block. Take a few moments for some light cardio and quiet contemplation. And strengthen your mind by reading two fitness articles. Maybe it’s looking for […]
Today’s challenge…try something new, or revisit something you haven’t done in quite awhile. Maybe it’s taking that class at your gym or rec center you’ve always thought about, but never went. Maybe it’s trying a new type of workout: circuit training, yoga, Tai Chi or spinning. For me, it’s yoga. I used to go regularly a few years back. But fell behind in my practice (cause it’s a bit pricey). But, today I will do a few poses. Luckily there […]
About one week left to go!! Today’s workout is structured around a medicine ball. We’ll tackle a full body routine with a little extra resistance to help us reach our goals.

Repeat the circuit 3x: Squat with overhead press Alternating forward lunges with rotation Alternating elevated pushups (under one hand, roll to the other, etc.) Supermans – hold the […]
Today is cardio day! The challenge today is 45 minutes of cardio. Your choice. You can do one activity for the full 45 minutes, or break it up. I’m going with 20 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on a rower, 10 minute jog and wrap it up with 5 minutes on jump rope! Get that heart rate up fitfam!
For those of you following along at home, how are you feeling? Me…I’m beat. But the journey moves on. It’s Day 21 of my 31 Days of Fitness challenge. Today’s workout is legs and core.

Move onto the next ONLY when you’ve finished every rep 100 Lunges (50 ea leg) 100 Crunches 100 Jumping Squats 100 Russian […]
Grab your jump rope! We’re working on our skipping endurance today! Only 4 exercises, but they should effectively workout head to toe. No jump rope, or not all that coordinated? No problem. Jump as if you had one in your hands. 2 minutes of jumping rope 20 reverse lunges 10 Hindu pushups 10 plank builders (low plank to high plank, high plank to low plank = 1) x5
Day 19 is here! Today is an activity of your choice. Do something you love. Or try something new. Go for a run. Try a yoga class. Find a fitness related activity and commit to at least 20 minutes of movement today. Today, I’ll get my ass kicked by Wilkins Santiago with a 60 minute boxing conditioning workout. Leaves me in a puddle of sweat and barely making it to the car.
