Some of you have children going back to school like I do and some of you are just excited about the cooler weather. Whatever excites you about this beautiful time of year is worth getting excited about. Life is EXCITING and as women we don’t want to just exist daily, but to really THRIVE! So I would like to encourage you to get out your appointment books and make you and your health one of your top PRIORITIES on your schedule this month and for the rest of the year. No matter how you do your scheduling be sure to write your workouts down on paper and in pen. That way they are hard to change and you can schedule your other appointments around your fitness time. Your commitment to your workouts is just as important as any other appointments you make. Your body will not just exercise on it’s own. As you know YOU have to move your body and make it HAPPEN.
This month as OC Fitness Mama we are doing a fitness challenge to help our clients get back on track…come fall back into fitness with a 21 day cardio challenge from September 9-30. For 21 days we what to encourage you do do cardio EVERY day for a minimum 21 minutes. You are welcome to do more if you choose. You can go to our Facebook event page and sign up to do the challenge.

Why did we choose 21 days? Because it takes 21 days to make a healthy habit. Join us from September 9-30 to create a healthy habit for yourself. choose any cardio activity that raises your heart rate and brings you JOY! Cardio helps to decrease stress, depression, and increase your endorphin’s so you can FEEL good all day long. Examples of cardio: walking, running, biking, swimming, dancing, cycling, roller skating, hula-hooping, jump-roping, jumping on a mini trampoline, home cardio DVD, playing tag with your children and any other moving activity that you enjoy. Our hope is that after 21 days you FEEL so AMAZING that you’ll want to continue to do cardio and strengthen the most important muscle in your body-your HEART! Now if your reading this post and it is past our challenge dates please try it on your own anyway. You can start it and do it for 21 days in a row, get a calendar and keep track of your cardio and what you do daily for 21 days and create a healthy habit for yourself.
