Remember January? When we all started the year with such high aspirations and awesome goals? It kind of seems like a long time ago, huh? But no worries. While January is a great time to set goals, so is EVERY. DAMN. DAY. Which is why this month’s Fit Bottomed Challenge theme is Back on Track! (Download and/or print the full May 2015 calendar here. And if you need a little more help figuring out how the Fit Bottomed Challenge works and why we created it, check out this handy dandy page.)
No matter where you’ve been, what goals you have or haven’t reached or what weight you’ve put on or dropped, it is a new day and a new month. And we challenge you to get Fit Bottomed with us — inside and out! After all, health isn’t just about the size and shape of your booty! So who’s in? Share the below image here, there and everywhere with #FBGChallenge for a chance to win free fit prizes like DVDs, books, beauty products and fitness apparel!
Here’s what fun y’all are in for this week … !
What to Expect This Week of the Fit Bottomed Challenge: May 4-10
Monday, May 4: Okay, so maybe your healthy eating resolutions in January didn’t exactly stick. That’s okay, ’cause we’ve got the real principles of eating healthy — minus the diet! Get them here, then follow ’em this month for easy ways to eat better, minus the diet drama.
Tuesday, May 5: Tend to be a perfectionist? Read this and commit to focusing on progress … not perfection.
Wednesday, May 6: Work it, girl! Today you’re doing a 15-minute AMRAP workout. Which means, do “as many rounds as possible” of the following moves in 15 minutes: 10 tricep dips, 10 push-ups, 10 squats. As you go, be sure to write down the number of rounds you complete. You may just see this workout again — and you may just want to beat your number.
Thursday, May 7: You refreshed yourself on the principles of healthy eating, and now it’s time to do the same on the principles of mindful eating. Read this and then start being mindful at meal-time.
Friday, May 8: Work on your balance with this workout. (It’s harder than it sounds!)
Saturday, May 9: Um, who fartleked? Well, it should be you! Today, we challenge you to hit the track for 20 minutes of fartleks. And, yes, making “fartlek” jokes is highly encouraged and probably burns extra calories.
Sunday, May 10: On this Sunday Funday we want you to brainstorm five workouts to try. Pick ones that you’ve always been interested in — or, ones that you’ve been too shy to try. Make a list and share with us with #FBGChallenge on Twitter or Instagram!
Getting back on track was never so much fun, right? Which day are you most psyched about? I always need to be reminded about “progress not perfection,” but I’m probably most pumped about that AMRAP. Simple, quick — and I bet I’ll feel the burn, like whoa! —Jenn
