Fit February: Challenge #3
February has been SUPER productive and we're just getting started. So far, we've managed to get our butts moving five days a week as well as reduce our dairy intake. How's your progress been?
It takes roughly 21 days to form a habit and while it's still too early to experience any significant changes, I noticed that my body has already been adjusting to a cleaner dairy-free diet. I am not one to miss adding cream to my coffee but avoiding desserts (prepared with dairy) have been the real challenge for me. When I slipped up on Friday and shared a big bowl of Tiramisu Bingsoo aka. Korean shaved ice with a friend, I had the most painful stomach ache that night. It's so crazy to think my body has already started to reject milk, cream, and cheese in just five days. Thankfully, I don't miss ice cream too much and I definitely feel like I can keep up with my detox knowing that we have so many delicious vegan options in Vancouver.
Week 1: Work out 5 days a week Week 2: Saying NOPE to dairy
- Week 3: Take at least 10,000 steps a day for a week
- Week 4: Nix Processed foods & white sugar
This week, our challenge is to take at least 10,000 steps a day for an entire week. The best thing is you don't even need a fitness tracker. The 'Health' app is a decent reference to how many steps you've been taking on the daily. You could even partake in the challenge blind and guarantee you're getting your steps in by finding any excuse to get your blood pumping and feet moving. Park farther away when you’re running errands, take the stairs any chance you get, go on a stroll or light job before work, on your lunch break, and in the evening. Adjusting your daily activities to fit in a few more steps will go a long way.
