10 Day Countdown to Fitness: Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of our 10 Day Countdown to Fitness!

I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July.

I’m assuming that you have done the previous assignments from the first 2 days of the Countdown. If not, PLEASE go back and do them. They’re essential parts of this whole process. If you are serious about using the 10 days to jump start exercising for weight loss, you will not get the long term results you want and deserve without doing the previous assignments. If you skipped over them, or if this is the first post you’re reading in this 10 day series, you can find Day 1 here.

Now let’s get started on Day 3.

Grab the physical activity list your made on Day 2, and your calendar/date book. Take the very first activity on the list (which should be the easiest activity for you to perform right NOW), and schedule yourself a 30 minute block of time to perform this activity at least 3 days every week for the next 30 days.

Now, you may not be able to perform the activity you’ve selected for the 30 minute block you’ve scheduled; that’s OK. Just get moving and do the best you can do. I promise you, by the end of the first 30 days, you will be increasing the amount of time you are able to exercise, as well as experiencing an increase in energy levels, and being a few pounds lighter. 🙂

As far as when you schedule your 30 minutes…just pick the time that works best for you.  It doesn’t matter if it’s morning, evening, or your lunch hour.  Just pick the time tht you will find it easiest to stick to.
For right now, we aren’t going to worry about the elements of effective workouts, like cardio, strength training, flexibility, etc.  The whole idea is to just get moving!  I’ll be writing plenty in the weeks and months ahead to help you learn more about exercising.  But for now…simply get moving.

And don’t forget to come back tomorrow for Day 4.

    Out of interest… can the 30 minute ‘block’ of exercise time be split into 2 e.g. 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening?

    KAZ — Yes, absolutely it can be. There’s a lot of advantages to splitting it up like that.
