How to Maintain a Workout Routine (and Not Hate it!)

rediscover-me-header Registration for the Rediscover Me 28 Day Challenge opened last Friday and today I’m sharing the last of four sneak peek videos from the challenge.  If you’ve already signed up, I can’t wait to share this life changing month with you!

In my first sneak peek video, I talked about an effective way to set goals.  In the second video, I shared a way to remove tolerations from your life and last week I introduced you to upgrades.  You can check out those videos at the following links:

Week One – Goal Setting

Week Two – Tolerations

Week Three – Upgrades

Today, I’m sharing one of the videos from the healthy living and wellness portion of the challenge.  It’s all about taking baby steps that lead to sustainable lifestyle changes.  Healthy living should be a lifestyle, not something you try out once a year as part of a resolution – just to get overwhelmed by it and quit.  By making small, sustainable changes, you can create lasting change. 

I’m talking about exercise in today’s video and sharing a way to feel pulled toward working out instead of pushing yourself through it.

I mention a 28 Day Challenge Facebook group in the video.  This group will be open for challenge participants starting.

It’s Your Turn:  Tell me about some activities that you love in the comments.  What do you look forward to that pulls you to work out?

Don’t miss out on the Rediscover Me 28 Day Challenge!  There will be NO late registration for this challenge.

    I love yoga too and now I might be hooked on aerial yoga! Looking into getting my own hammock for my home! 🙂

    • Aerial yoga sounds like fun Bebe! 🙂

    I did one of my old Power Walk Dvd’s after listening to your video Alison…Thank you!!!! I love your idea of doing it for yourself and doing something you enjoy. You totally inspired me :). And just signed up for the Challenge! Thank you, Karen S.

    • So glad Karen. Welcome!

    I absolutely agree: the key is to find an activity you love. For me this seems to be Zumba. I fell in love with my Zumba class two years ago and today I go twice a week to dance everything off. At this time I´m looking for a different activity to do at home and I really enjoy some of Jillian Michaels workouts. Tonight I will try Yoga Extreme for the first time.

    • I love how you do a variety Silke! I’m very impressed. I might do the same too!

        I can absolutely recommend this Yoga Extreme DVD. Workouts are done in 30 minutes and I can easily fit them into my day (as an after work workout).

  • Dog walking is my daily go-to exercise as well! My pooch and I walk fast on a hilly route for a good 40+ minutes so it is good exercise for both of us.

    I have also discovered in the past year a wonderful online streaming site called Suzanne Bowen Fitness. She teaches a fusion of barre, pilates and interval cardio and I just love it. There is so much variety and yet all of the workouts feel do-able and non-punishing (while still being effective). It’s great!
