So, the 30 Days Active Challenge is over, guys.
It’s been quite a few weeks for me. If you think about it – the past few weeks were a demonstration of what life is all about when you’re trying to stay healthy – circumstances getting in the way of your workouts, birthdays and celebrations messing up your healthy eating plans. Weather forecast, 11-year-old girls and their dramas, work stress, stars lining up the wrong way – all that is always going to be there and will be getting in your way.
By taking on this challenge I left myself no way to back out. I had to stay active and make good choices every day regardless of all the above.
And that’s the biggest lesson I’m taking away from this.
You have to pick yourself up and keep going – after that extra piece of cake (no guilt, enjoy it), that drama, those stars, that stress…
So here’s the last recap for this 30 Days Active Challenge for you guys. I hope you enjoyed following my adventure!
I totally rocked the dinner that night (hubby helped grilling):
After dinner we went for a nice long walk. Good steps that day!
On Thursday we decided to go for a bike ride. Yours truly dresses up in all the bright colors to be visible on the road, put on the cycling shoes…only to discover that my husband’s bike had a flat that needed a while to fix. The time was 7:00 pm and we only had 1.5 hour of the daylight left. So we decided to go for a walk instead.
It was such a gorgeous evening! We walked to and around the college football/baseball fields, and it was just amazing out there! We ended up walking over 3 miles that night.
Smoothie of the day was watermelon – peach goodness. Yum!
Casual Friday morning started with Vibrams and a watermelon-mint smoothie 🙂
Friday night was a yoga night. My instructor had been gone for a couple weeks, so it was good to be back in his class and do some much needed stretching.
Funny thing about yoga – your body gets so used to it when you do it regularly that aches and pains come right back if you miss a few classes on your regular schedule.
Was awesome to be back into it on Friday!
I was up bright and early to go to Megan’s cycling class.
I love her classes! I never asked, but I think she’s a cyclist – her classes are always built so realistically – just what you would do on a regular bike, no funky moves or profiles! And – they kick.your.ass. Big time!
Saturday awesomeness continued with a much needed 4 (!!!) hour nap and getting this in the mail:
I can’t wait to go running!
And that was it for the 30 Days Active Challenge, guys. I’m done with it and back to my regular workout schedule with those “take-aways” I talked about in the beginning of this post.
I think I will continue with Wednesday workout recaps on this blog, what do you think? 🙂
Thanks for following along and cheering me on in the past 30 days! I couldn’t have done that without you!
