Ready for the New Year? Drop the resolutions and create a new health habit this January with the 30/31 fitness challenge!
Are you ready for the New Year? I am (sort of)! I am looking forward to a fresh year ahead, but I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions per se. I prefer to set goals throughout the year instead of making resolutions for the whole year. For January, my goal is to move for at least 30 minutes daily to create a healthy new habit. To stay accountable, I decided to turn my goal for January into a challenge so others can join in, too!
If you want to set aside the New Year’s resolutions and work to create a healthy habit, join my 30/31 Challenge on ChallengeLoop! The goal is simple: move for at least 30 minutes daily every day in January (31 days).
You get to choose how you want to move (Zumba, rock climbing, walking, yoga, hiking, weight lifting, CrossFit…whatever!) as long as you are moving for at least 30 minutes daily. I encourage you to choose activities that you love and enjoy, but I also want participants to be adventurous and find some new ways to move!
The challenge starts January 1st, but you can join any time. Keep track of everyone’s progress and share your activities with the hashtag #30in31
Did I mention that there will be prizes? The 30/31 Challenge is a prize challenge! If you participate in the challenge on ChallengeLoop by checking in with your activities and progress, you will be entered to win prizes each week from some amazing sponsors. Feel free to support these great companies by liking them on Facebook and following on Twitter: it’s not mandatory, but much appreciated!
