TGIF! Happy Friday! Happy start to a 3 day weekend for some of us! My plans for today include a visit to my eye doctor to get fitted for glasses (WOOHOO!!!), a makeover at Sephora, and dinner with hubby and friends. A great way to start the weekend.
August is ending rapidly and a new month starts Monday. I always see tons of different fitness challenges for each month. I have tried some and succeeded and tried others and failed. I decided to create one for everyone to succeed at – especially those beginning a fitness routine or maybe getting back into fitness after an injury.
This challenge is all about doing one thing daily (#1ThingDaily). There is one exercise a day for 5 days and then it repeats. You will notice there are no numbers assigned to each exercise. It is about doing what YOU can and then working to beat yourself.

So, an example – squats on Monday. Maybe you get up and do a few while getting ready. Maybe a few more before lunch. More before dinner. More before bed. Total those up. The next time squats come around – try to beat YOUR number. If you are not sure where to start – start with 5-10 of the exercise at a time.
When you start the challenge on Monday, think of a reward you can give yourself for completing the challenge. Maybe a pedicure, a new workout outfit, a gift card to the iTunes store, anything that YOU want.
Throughout the month I will be checking in with you to see how you are doing. I will provide some motivation and variations of the exercises listed.
Share what you are doing on social media with the hashtag #1ThingDaily!
Will you join me in the September #1ThingDaily challenge?
Have a healthy day!
