7 Day Fitness Challenge Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of your 7 Day Challenge. You only have one day left…how’s it going? Are you struggling with any particular challenge? If so, that’s something to think about. None of us are going to be perfect all the time, right? Just do the best you can and you’ll get a nice prize at the end. Okay, there’s no prize, but you should still reward yourself for all the hard work you’re doing.

Your Active Challenge

While watching TV, get up during every commercial break and exercise, stretch or walk around.

Even if you have a DVR, you still have to get up and move around. Do this for one hour-long show or for every TV show you watch this evening. Try crunches, squats, pushups, lower body stretches, etc.

Your Exercise Challenge

Set aside about 15-25 minutes to do this Basic Total Body Dumbbell Workout. Obviously, you’ll need some dumbbells, but this one is quick and easy, so you’ll be done in no time. Do just one set of each exercise or, if you’re feeling frisky, try 2-3 sets.

Your Flexibility Challenge

Do this Core and Flexibility Workout.

You’ll need an exercise ball and a resistance band and some of the moves can be intense. Feel free to go back to previous flexibility exercises or workouts if this one doesn’t float your boat.

Your Nutrition Challenge

Stay hydrated.

This is always a boring challenge, I know, but most of us probably don’t drink as much water as we should. Today, pay attention to how thirsty you are. Get a water bottle and see how many times you can fill it up. Keep in mind that some foods contain water, too, like fruits and veggies, so those count. You’ll know you’re hydrated when your pee is clear. And because you’ll have to pee about every 15 minutes. Sorry about that.

Your Mind/Body Challenge

Before you go to bed, take five minutes and write down at least 5 things you accomplished today and at least 5 things you’d like to accomplish tomorrow.

You can also use this time to write down anything you’re worried about, make a to-do list or anything else that will help you prepare yourself for the coming day, allowing you to fully relax and sleep knowing everything’s under control.

Daily Challenge Checklist

How’d you do with your challenges today? Use this checklist to cross off everything you accomplished or make notes on what you didn’t accomplish and why. You can also use the checklist to make substitutions for any challenges that didn’t work for you or create even more challenges for yourself.
