I hope you’ve enjoyed my series on creating a fitness routine. I truly hope you’ve learned something or taken some time to reflect on your exercise routine or habits and have been able to implement something from this series.
Here’s where we’ve been with the J2K Challenge. We’ve all failed at fitness at one time or another (or even more times than not). So the challenge is to identify those shortcomings and move forward – failure will lead to success.
After we critiqued our failures, we compiled some goals, but not just any goal – S.M.A.R.T. goals. Then we discussed how we’d keep ourselves organized. I wrote about keeping good records and gave some examples of different ways to monitor your workouts, mostly online.
From there we realized people were starting to implement their new exercise program but the inevitable always shows up – distractions and changes in the schedule. So we talked about making adjustments to your plan so that you can stay on track and move towards your goals.
Have you noticed that I haven’t talked about exercises specifically? There’s a couple reasons for this.
- I’m establishing a framework for a fitness routine before I discuss the details.
- I have to establish an audience before I get into specific exercise recommendations.
- I didn’t know quite what to expect with a series and I’ve used this as a learning experience.
