TODAY'S CHALLENGE IS:
Yes, yes, I know. Maybe you don't want to exercise. Maybe you try to exercise but can't make yourself stick with it. Maybe you do exercise and are sitting here saying "Lol, today's challenge is in the BAG." Neither of this are valid excuses, this is Newvember, a chance to become better than what you were before.
This might be a challenge for some people, but what it comes down to is your will to succeed. Motivation is probably the biggest challenge people will have with this one. This problem will likely come up disguised as "time." You have time to work out. If you are reading this blog post, then you definitely have a half hour a day you can spare. It all depends on how badly you want to improve yourself.
This challenge is to START exercising, to begin. You must find a workout regimen that you can do on a regular basis, and you must stick with it for at least the rest of the month.
Here is my regimen so far, it's pretty shitty, but it's what I've been doing:
Mon/Wed: DDR (350 cal or 30 minutes), Fencing (45 minutes), Strength Training (30 minutes)
Tues/Thurs: DDR (350 cal or 30 minutes), Running (Couch To 5K program)
On weekends I work in a kitchen all day. I plan on adding some more stuff to that, but that is what I am doing right now. You don't have to try to match that, although it would be a huge step if you did (come at me, bro). Not that I'm bragging, I'm sure there are people who do a LOT more than me who are reading this.
Adding just one exercise to your daily routine can make a huge difference. You probably won't enjoy it during the act, but you will feel better afterward, and the long-term effects of doing it regularly far outweigh the short-term benefit of taking it easy instead.
Here are some resources to help you.
The Couch To 5K Running Program:
The routine I plan on following (Note: I don't know how great this routine is, you can probably ask someone on /fit/, as they know much more than I do):
