Welcome to Day 9 of our 10 Day Countdown to fitness!
I’m assuming that you have done the previous assignments from the first 8 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.
For day 9, we’re going to once again use our time in front of the TV to lose some weight and get fit! Beginning today, I want you to start taking an exercise break while watching TV in the evening. During the first commercial break, hit the floor and do as many push ups as you can until the show resumes. IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MANY YOU CAN OR CAN NOT DO! Just do the best you can, and that’s good enough. :-)
When the next commercial break begins, stand up and do some squats. Again, it doesn’t matter how many you can do; just do the best you can until your show resumes.
For the next commercial break, hit the floor and do crunches. Do as many as you can during the commercial. And again, it doesn’t matter how many you can do. Do what you can, and be proud of the fact that you’re exercising!
Congratulations…you have just completed a full body work out. Do this once a day, and you will quickly see and feel many changes in your body.
If you have kids, I’d suggest getting them involved in doing this with you. It’s a great way to start building the exercise habit in them, and you will have fun as well.
See you tomorrow for the last day in our Countdown!
