Summer Boot Camp Day 1: Choose Your Summer Activity

Posted by   + Show Post

Summer, aka: bathing suit season, starts in 6 weeks! Don't let the season sneak up on you: six weeks is plenty of time to shape up and get on the healthy track!

Your activity for Day 1 is: Choose an exercise or activity you really like

Could you walk forever but hate to jog? Do you love to dance? Prefer the outdoors over the gym? Figure out the aerobic activities you love and focus on those this summer. You'll be much more likely to stick with a workout you enjoy than one you're forcing yourself to get through. Once you've got an activity, make a plan to do said activity at least 3 times a week. Write it down on the calendar for all the summer months, and cross that day out each time you do it. Trust us, writing it down can be very motivating!

What activity are you choosing as your summer exercise of choice? Tell us in the replies!

Running early in the morning. It's the time of the day when My DH is home and available to watch the kids, so I can take an hour or two to get in a really good butt kicking workout in.

I enjoy walking. I can literally walk for miles. I am trying to walk once a week and do an exercise video once a week. I have a very active job so somedays I do not have any energy left to exercise.

AWESOME! I'm in!

We just bought bikes and a trailer for the kiddos so my plan is to bike a lot more... ideally to parks and things... it would be cool to barely use our car during the summer and just bike to the lake, park etc...
