Healthy Choice Challenge Week 6

Hello lovlies, it's time for this weeks edition of Healthy Choice Challenge. If you are just now joining us get caught up by reading Healthy Choice Challenge Week 1, HCC Week 2, HCC Week 3, HCC Week 4, and HCC Week 5. How did last weeks challenge go, did you enjoy your outdoor challenge and find something fun to do? I'm going to be honest, it was hot here in Oklahoma. I worked on some projects and sweated (I don't think that's a word but it is now) like crazy being outside in the heat. It doesn't cool down here until about mid-night and you can't exactly see what you are painting when you are outside at that time.

Last week Jarr decided we needed to start a new work-out routine since we haven't really been to the gym since the end of May. With harvest and then our vacations we really didn't have any time to go and workout. We are still using the gym at our old college until we move and they have limited hours during the summer. Neither of us want to pay for a gym membership just for a few weeks so we try to make it work.

Anyways, this new workout is kicking my butt. Seriously, this is the first day in 6 days that I haven't cringed every time I walk. Our leg workout is killer, and my arms feel like jello most of the time. Also, my abs hurt when I move, laugh, talk, sneeze, breathe, so all the time. BUT, this is amazing. I love this feeling after starting a new workout and I know that it will all be worth it once I am back in shape.

So in honor of the new workout I am doing my challenge for you this week is to do some kind of workout. You can do anything you want, go swimming, walk around your block, do 5 crunches (yes just 5 is okay) chase your kids around the backyard and run with them, or deep clean your house. I know that last one might throw you but seriously who doesn't sweat up a storm when they clean? And if you are scrubbing your whole house for a deep clean you are getting in a workout.

For some more ideas go and check out Lazy Girl Fitness at Violet Sage. She has some awesome easy workouts you can do while you are doing your normal routine. Seriously go and check her out, she has some awesome workouts that don't take any time out of your normal routine and are super easy and will work wonders!

So go out and do something fun and get a little workout in. Nothing to strenuous, just a little something that will make you feel like crud for a few minutes and then you will feel so much better tomorrow!

  1. Hi Morgan, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving some love :) Your Healthy Choice Challenge is such a good one. I walk everyday, everywhere, and usually take the stairs. And I go 30-45mins of yoga everyday. There are days when I'm really busy or tired, on those days I still try to do 15mins of yoga before I go to bed. And I congratulate myself all the time to keep me motivated. Wishing you all the best for this weeks challenge :) xoxox
