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!

I'm going to start doing my Wii Fit. I used to enjoy it but haven't done it in a while. :)

I've tried a spin class. I'm going to try to go at least once a week and work up to being able to do the whole class.

I'm a runner.... (well, i say that and want to mean it, I dont see it, but I put on the shoes and go running on occasion, so that makes me a runner)

I wish I could play volleyball more, need a car and a place to play, lol. I want to dance more too... music is a powerful thing and I have been neglecting my love of music for awhile now.

Right now I am focusing on walking then building my way up to jogging. About 3 days ago I have been walking 2.3 miles every night. I have an app. on my phone that tracks my workouts for me, what I eat, and lets me know if I went over my calorie intake. It tracjs my ditance and the days that I work out.
