My daughter and I have agreed to a fitness challenge for the month of September. I’m not exactly sure where she got the idea: maybe from this website or this TED Talk by Google software engineer Matt Cutts. The idea is to stick with a new routine for an entire month with the outside goal that the regular lengthy commitment may end with a new well-established habit.
Our particular challenge is 10 minutes of aerobics, 10 minutes of strength training, 10 minutes of yoga or Qigong. The idea of committing to someone else is to be held accountable- so much so that you actually complete the challenge for the full 30 days.
This is not an exclusive club. Join us- 30 minutes of your choice of exercise daily for this month of September-Let’s meet back here at September 30th and see how we did.
