July Fitness Challenge: A Worthwhile Fail

Turns out vacation wasn't the best time to start my challenge, but it was a good reminder that focusing on the people I love is just as important.
Turns out vacation wasn’t the best time to start my challenge, but it was a good reminder that focusing on the people I love is also rejuvenating.

July is over and so is my 10-minutes-a-day (yoga) challenge. I did great until it was time to leave for vacation and then I completely lost focus. Turns out traveling with a 16-month-old required a lot of energy. The ten minutes I had to myself were generally spent doing something more time sensitive, like eating or taking a shower or appreciating the people around me.

Even so, the challenge was successful in making me realize how even 10 minutes of exercise impacts my overall feeling of well being, and most days, the 10 minutes stretched into more. The small time commitment made it easier to get started. Now that I’m home again, I’m going to attempt to make 10 minutes part of my regular self-care routine, as opposed to a temporary challenge.

If you participated, how did your month go? Did you stick to it? If not, did you still get something positive out of it? Hope you’ll share.

And, if you kept at it all month, virtual high five.

    1. You should! 10 minutes a day is a much easier commitment than a lot of fitness challenges, (and easily turns into more once you get going!). I’m hoping to try again this month too 🙂
