30 Day Exercise Challenge For People Who Don't Like to Work Out

It's that time of year..... the end of the year parties, get-togethers and over abundance of tempting food.  The time of year everyone indulges, splurges on food they love, or just snacks on items because they are in front of them.  To add insult, the TV advertisers feel this is a perfect time to start making you feel guilty about your pants being snug and advertise all their weight loss options.  Every other commercial is a weight loss gimmick or program or the latest and greatest piece of exercise equipment.

I used to jog
Then on top of that, due to holiday season all of my social media is flooded with all the direct sales programs for losing weight, working out, or a way to balance your diet, and pro-biotic health of some sort.  I am gonna let you guys in on a little secret.  I say if these things work for you, then I give you a lot of credit because  I'm cheap and lazy when it comes to my health.

I hate buying exercise equipment because I'll use it for a week and then it will collect dust in my closet somewhere.  I'm also cheap, I can't justify purchasing something I need to sign up for auto-refills on or need to keep in touch with a sales person to order.  Along with being cheap, I'm secretive.  I don't want to have to contact someone every time I need to order a product.  I want to go to the store, use the u-scan machine and get on with life.  I don't want to contact anyone to purchase anything.  I guess you can say I'm complicated when it comes to my health and working out.

What I need is accountability. I used to jog and run 5K races.  I spent a whole year training to run and competing in local 5K races and even ran an 8K race.  But I had a friend I met with to work out.  I need someone to compete against when working out.  I need to be able to work out with someone else in order to get me there every day.  But going back to my statement about being cheap, I don't like to go to the gym.  So I realized unless I motivate myself to get in gear, I am never going to do anything about it.

I decided to do a 30 day work out challenge.....but which one?  Do I want to focus on my butt, abs, gut, or arms?  So I thought, since I'm doing one challenge, how hard can it be to do all of the challenges?  I decided to merge together three challenges to make a total body work out challenge that didn't require the gym, exercise equipment, or leaving my house.  Now, let me just say I am not a fitness expert, I have no idea if this will work, if it's healthy, or if it's a good idea.  I just want to try it, and am making an accountability group to help with with actually doing the work out.  So if you want to join me, consult your doctor prior to doing the exercises and if at any time these are too much for you, by all means, stop doing the work out.  But if you are game for a crazy adventure, lets work out together. And from now on I will be using exercize with a z, because we are snazzy like that.
