Today"s Movie: Castaway Action Items for Tuesday, May 5th: Fitness Challenge: 100 push ups, 100 sit ups. Compare how you do to last week - Did it take you the same amount of time? How do you feel mentally about the challenge, knowing that you have done it TWICE before? Try a different tactic. See how many you can do without stopping! Don't let the number scare you - you can do this challenge in two different ways: 1. Timed Complete all 100 push ups and sit ups 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, 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.
Mindfulness Challenge: Sit and do nothing for 5 minutes. Potentially the most difficult task to do for the week! Even if you can't make it the whole 5 minutes, dedicate time to sitting and doing nothing. Compare how it feels to the past two weeks - if you are doing it 100%, it should feel much different than the first time you attempted it!
Lifestyle Challenge: Look up something that means something to you and tell us about it! It doesn't have to be a full on presentation - just a fun fact about something you were curious about!
