The #100DaysOfFitness Challenge: 25 Days Later

I embarked on a journey. A journey of fitness to be exact.

They say that it takes 21 days to create a new habit but I don’t think that’s the case for me. Personally, I struggle to stick to things so I need to really reinforce my new habits.

That is why I started the #100DaysOfFitness challenge!

If you’ve been following me online for a while, you’ll know that I’m trying to lose some weight. Last year, I lost three stone which just isn’t enough for me. I wish I lost more and thinking about it now, I could have been at my goal already if I’d just worked harder.

But that’s all in the past now. All I can do now is work harder and keep going.

So, how did my first 25 days of the challenge go?

Day 1

I went to the gym. I did some tummy exercises and a lot of cardio. I think cardio is my favourite type of workout. Oh, and I walked over 13,000 steps which isn’t the best but I’ll take it.

Day 2

I skipped the gym to walk around the shops with Simon. I did reach my daily step goal though so I’m happy and content. I also did 10 minutes of yoga which I haven’t done in months!

Day 3

I walked to town and back instead of having a lazy Sunday like I usually do. It’s about a 40 minute round trip. I didn’t quite hit my daily step goal but I was close.

Day 4

I went to the gym and DEMOLISHED a programme that was designed by Simon. I’ve never sweated so much at the gym before! Oh, and I did 15,000 steps to make up for the lazy day the day before. I did some yoga before bed!

Day 5

I absolutely killed my workout at the gym. Finished up super sweaty but it was all worth it. Also, I demolished my daily step goal..

Day 6

It snowed so I couldn’t walk outside much because I’m super clumsy. It meant that I didn’t reached my daily step goal. I did do some beginner’s yoga though!

Day 7

I walked 13,000 steps. That’s the only fitness thing that I did.

Day 8

I went to the gym even though I really didnโ€™t want to. I had tummy pain all day but still managed to do over 15,000 steps..

Day 9

I only just hit my daily step goal. I didn’t go to the gym but I did do some stretches in the evening.

Day 10

I did a lot of walking. 21,000 steps to be exact. That is definitely more than I usually do on a Sunday. I did take some measurements though so I can compare my results to the end of the 100 days.

Day 11

I had the ultimate lazy day. No exercise was done at all.

Day 12

I went to the gym and mostly did stretches and yoga as my back hurt. I also walked 24,800 steps!

Day 13

It was another snow day so I stayed in. I did some stretches though as I keep getting aches in my legs.

Day 14

Another day of snow (it was turning into ice) so we walked to town and walked around a little (very slowly). I did record some weight loss goals for my YouTube channel though. You can check that out here.

Day 15

I walked 26,200 steps. I was super tired and slept well that night!

Day 16

I reached my step goal by walking 21,600 steps. We only walked so much because we went shopping.

Day 17

Only walked 7,800 steps but that’s okay because not all days can be great!

Day 18

I went to the gym on my own and although my anxiety was high, I enjoyed myself in the end. I will go on my own more often from now on.

Day 19

I went to the gym. Didn’t do much because my back was still sore but I did do some stretches. I created a fitness Instagram account though.

Day 20

I went to the gym again. Still had a sore back so just stretches for me.

Day 21

I had a morning doctors appointment so couldn’t make it to the gym. The doctor said I have asthma (again) which could be why I’m getting back pain.

Day 22

I did a heck of a lot of walking. I did two days worth of steps. I didn’t make it to the gym though.

Day 23

Once again, there was no gym but I did reach my daily step going by doing 15,100 steps.

Day 24

I felt ill so I didn’t reach my step goal nor did I go to the gym.

Day 25

Once again, there was no gym but I did reach my daily step goal which is good.

So, I started off doing really well but then it went downhill. Hopefully the next 25 days will be better!

One thought on “The #100DaysOfFitness Challenge: 25 Days Later

  1. You’re a quarter into this challenge, and doing well. I barely make it to the gym once a week and since I’m in a wheelchair, I can’t do a daily step goal.
    Good luck with the rest of the challenge!
