7 Day Fitness Challenge Day 4

Today we’ve got some brand new challenges for you to try. Let’s get to it!

Your Active Challenge

Accumulate at least 10 minutes of extra walking today.

Be creative and look for ways to walk around more, timing each session. Some ideas:

  • Take an extra lap around the office or the house when you take a bathroom break.
  • Walk the dog for an extra five minutes.
  • Pace while you talk on the phone.
  • Take a lap around the block when you go out to get the mail or the paper.

 Your Flexibility Challenge

Choose one of the following flexibility workouts and do it twice, once after your cardio workout and then again any time throughout the day.

Your options:

Your Mind/Body Challenge

2-minute meditation.

Find a quiet place and sit or lie down comfortably with your hands resting on your thighs. Close your eyes and breathe deeply and slowly, feeling your belly expand on the inhale and contract on the exhale. With each exhale, relax the tension in your face, neck and shoulders. Soften your eyes, smooth your forehead and continue to breathe for at least 2 minutes.
