: Anyone up for a pre-swim suit season fitness challenge?
So it's March, which in my neck of the woods means tank top, shorts, and swim suit season is about 10 weeks away. I'm personally at an all time high weight because of various health issues (PCOS and digestive problems)and the death of my teenage metabolism (RIP eating whatever I want). I'd love to try to lose a few lbs before the summer, but it's hard to stay motivated to get to the gym without some accountability.
Would anyone be up for a fitness challenge? I know there is a separate fitness board but I thought this forum would get more responses and also maybe rope in some people who wouldn't otherwise join in because they don't look at the fitness board.
If anyone is up for a 10 week challenge, feel free to join in, post your goals, and check in to stay accountable!
If this catches on, I'm thinking a rule of at least one update per week would be good. That's only 10 updates, so it's not a huge commitment to update daily or anything like that (unless you want to obviously!)
-Gym 4x per week, combining cardio and weight training at least 2 days
-Yoga 2x per week.
-Take the stairs, not the elevator (I live on the 4th floor of my building)
-Cut soda to 1 per day and drink more water
-Feel better in a two-piece than I would if I put one on right now. I'm going to guess that would amount to about 10 lbs, but I don't have a scale and I think going by how I feel is a better gauge anyway.
