AHH!! I’m so excited for you! It’s day 7!
Hey, it’s Candice from Little Steps, Big Happy.
You have almost completed this Beginner Fitness Challenge and that is so awesome! You are one workout away from crushing this fitness challenge!
Making it this far shows a real commitment to improving your health and fitness. That’s something to be seriously proud of.
Your daily dose of motivation:
Here is the quote I wanted to share with you today:
“I want to see what happens if I don’t give up.”
That quote is so powerful!
So many women I know are so afraid of failing at their goals that they give up partway through. If they even get up the nerve to try to achieve them in the first place.
They will convince themselves that they have a good excuse for stopping. Either things just “didn’t work out.” Or maybe they “didn’t have the time.”
The truth is though, they gave up on themselves. Whatever label they put on it, the reality is they stopped trying.
I don’t want that to be the story of your health and fitness journey. I want you to get really interested and curious about what happens if you don’t give up on your goals.
Because not giving up is the real secret to success. Not getting it right every time. Not having the perfect diet plan and fitness routine.
It’s about consistently showing up every day and trying over and over again until you get it right. It’s about refusing to give up on yourself.
I know that you have everything it takes inside of you to work towards the life that you want. Just don’t give up until you get there ok?
Here is your last workout in our 7-Day Beginner Fitness Challenge.
Day 7: 15 Minute Walk/Jog
For your last workout, I want you to give it all you got and do a 15-minute walk/jog. You are either going to alternate walking and jogging or jog for the full 15 minutes.
If you are feeling good, I want you to jog for the whole 15 minutes. Don’t worry about how fast you go, just try to maintain a steady speed the whole time.
If jogging the whole fifteen minutes is too hard, I want you to alternate jogging for 30 seconds and walking briskly for 2 minutes. Make sure when you do slow down to a walk, you are keeping a quick walking pace.
And it’s totally OK to opt for alternating a walk/jog. That’s where I started when I first started running. The best place to start is exactly where you are at. If you put the work in, you won’t be there for long.
