A few years ago, I participated in a 80 day fitness challenge. It was intense. No sugar, no soda, 80 ounces of water every day, 7 hours of sleep 3 times a week, exercise 6 times a week, 5 (I think) servings of fruits and vegetables every day... and, I feel like I am forgetting a thing or two. But, because I was competing, the follow through was a breeze. I came out on top!
I've needed to get my health back in order for far longer than I'd like to admit. I just can't ever seem to follow through on my own. It's too easy for me to talk myself into a midnight snack, a bowl of ice cream, a quick run to Sonic...
All that to say, I recently decided that my health could no longer be put on the back burner. It is time to get serious! But, knowing my weaknesses, I knew I could not do this alone. So, I drug my roommate into a fitness competition. But, what happened from there is like nothing I would have expected.
I put a little blurb on facebook about doing a fitness/health challenge and anyone interested could join. Over the course of a week and a half, over 20 women from five different states have joined. Today, we will begin "Get Fit Summer 2014" Or, #GF2K14 for short!
I can't take all the credit for this. I adapted the idea from Six Sisters Stuff - 8 Week Weight Loss. They have a free document to download. I just added a few things to best fit the needs of our group. So, thank you to the Six Sisters for sharing your creation for free!
I am inviting you to join me on our journey over the next eight weeks. It is going to be quite a ride. I will share every Monday a re-cap of our week! So, come along! And, if inspired, jump on in with us!
