100 Day Challenge!

100 Day Challenge!

Happy Sunday morning!!! Hope your all having a fab weekend!

So I’ve been home from my holidays for a week, and I’m thinking I need to have something new to aim for. Like most people I was focusing on my holiday, eating well, keeping up my workouts and having the goal of feeling good in a bikini to keep me motivated! Anyway now the holiday is over and the girls are due to go back to school, I feel like I need a new challenge, a new goal to aim towards.

I’ve had a few emails from followers, asking how I stay motivated or get started on the fitness path? For me I need to have a focus, something to aim for. For example, when I first stopped drinking I logged my weight every 10 days, and wrote it down in the back of Jason Vales – Kick The Drink book that I had read at the start of my journey. I wanted to be the healthiest and fittest I could be as a result of not drinking and that was my new focus. I wasn’t obsessed with my weight but it was just good to see the weights coming off, very slowly sometimes but it was good to see it logged down. I know what works for me, and having a goal and tracking my progress to see how I am doing is personally a huge motivator.

There are all different kinds of challenges you can set yourself. You can be aiming for a month, 100 days of not drinking, then a year. It may be that you want to lose weight, drop a dress size, incorporate a new healthy food or drink for a month? Or maybe you could book a challenge such as a 5k, 10krun, a bike ride, a mud run challenge. I booked a Tough Mudder last year and although it scared me to death knowing I was actually doing one, it certainly made me train for it!!!

Once you have set your challenge whatever that maybe, it makes it a focus, a priority. We are all busy, we all spend a lot of time doing things for other people, work, kids, partners, parents, friends, and now I’ve a puppy thrown in the mix! But by setting yourself a challenge, you can prioritise it each day, to make sure you get one step nearer to your goal. You owe it to yourself, it’s important to you, make sure you make the time to do it and don’t let yourself down.

Once you’ve started to think this way, it will become a normal part of your day, and that’s when it becomes part of your lifestyle.

I’ve decided to set myself a 100 day challenge to exercise every day for at least 20 minutes to an hour. It can be anything from a full weights workout, a run, a fitness dvd to a family bike ride or power walk with the pup! But I will log it everyday on Instagram just to make sure I keep on track. If anyone wants to join me, that would be fab, even if it’s a totally different challenge! Maybe healthy eating for 100 days, then post your food pictures in the comments! Maybe you want to do a month or 50 days, whatever works for you? Let me know your goals and let’s motivate each other! We’ve got this!

Day one will start tomorrow.

And remember a one hour workout is 4% of your day!

  1. Hi Angie

    I would love to join your challenge. I have been trying to control/stop my drinking for years with the ultimate goal of having the perfect body and losing weight. Perhaps my expectations are unrealistic, but when I’m three stone lighter I am very very happy with my body.

    I am currently on 30 days AF. I have tracked my weight frequently over the last 30 days. I have fluctuated between 83 to 81 to 85 to 84 kilos.
    I have enrolled a personal trainer once a week. I have a fit bit where sometimes I reach 13,000 steps a day and sometimes only 4,000. I play tennis doubles (not much exercise) walk the dog (7,000 steps), yoga and swim.

    I’ve bought four months worth of Jane Plan where they deliver the food in controlled portion sizes. I tried it for a week but although I could stomach the breakfasts I didn’t like the soups being pre-packed and unfresh. Or the fish and main courses were nuked and dry by the time I’d heated them. Plus I ate the months worth of treats in one sitting.
    I didn’t realise I was such an emotional obsessive eater. I just crave the chocolate. Maybe it’s becauae I’m not eating normal carbs like pasta, rice and bread.

    I’ve tried Liezl Jane utube vidéos and bought all the Tupperware and portion cups and tried to prepare loads of calorie counted fresh meals.

    I’ve ordered and paid for Max Lowerie intermittent fasting menus but those weren’t portion controlled so I put on weight as I wasn’t disciplined enough to torture myself with HIIT, hence the introduction of a personal trainer. But it’s only once a week.

    I’d prefer to eat a healthy meal occasionally and then just snack. It’s the meals and vegetables and variety I find onerous. And as soon as I’ve finished eating I want a pudding with cream or some chocolate. Whereas I am fine before I eat.

    I am at a loss and would love some help and don’t know where to turn.

    1. Hi Hermione! Well firstly 30 days af is amazing, well done you!!! I would love you to join me! From what you said, it sounds like it has been mainly focused around food. I find that once I put myself on a type of eating plan, diet or regime I just get obsessed with eating the wrong foods!!!! Whereas if I concentrate on exercising then I automatically start eating healthier and my weights takes care of itself because I’m
      Not tho king about food all the time! So yes I would love you to join me on my challenge!!! Are you filling me on instagram? Or you can email me any updates or questions at weightsnotwine@gmail.com 👍🏻😊

  2. Hi Angie
    I will join too! 28 days no booze and exercise 5 days a week- I have been doing well on the exercise – so feel I am in a good place to keep that up! Booze is hard for me- been on / off it for years, but 28 days seems doable and I won’t think beyond that for now 🙂
