Action items for Friday, April 24th:
Fitness Challenge: 100 Burpees
Compare to how long it took you to complete the challenge last week, where you feel strong and where you need improvement.
This can be done two ways:
Complete all 100 burpees at once, timing yourself how long it takes to get done. Write down in your journal how long it takes, what you broke up the intervals into and where you felt fatigued most.
2. Throughout the Day
Instead of going all at once, break up into bite-sized intervals throughout the day. You can do 10 every hour or 50 in the morning and evening.. however you want to do it! Again, record in your journal what your intervals were, what your breakdown was, how you felt physically, etc.
Lifestyle Challenge: No tv
Added bonus challenge: Take that time you would use towards watching tv to go for a walk, start a new hobby or just relax and listen to some music!
Mindfulness Challenge: Write down your achievements for the week
List 5-10 achievements you have made in your life this week. This can be anything! What were you proud of doing this week? Accomplishments, first times (maybe in some of these challenges!), work tasks, chapters read.. just about anything!
Added bonus: reward yourself with your favorite meal, a special drink or an afternoon drive to your favorite spot!
Nutrition Challenge: Double your protein intake
This can be as easy as replacing one carb every meal with a protein! Your body can only absorb about 30g of protein per meal, so no need to go overboard. Most of us don't get NEARLY the amount of protein we should be eating every day, leading to hunger, cravings and muscle loss. This can even be as simple as adding a protein shake to your midday snack!
