2020 Mini Challenge Week 49, November 30 – December 6

Killer Bs, you probably know that I’m an avid runner 🏃 but did you also know that I am a TOTAL creature of habit?  (Okay, yes, you probably knew this, too – it’s not a secret! 😂) 

I eat the same breakfast and usually the same lunch, I have “my spot” on the couch, and yes, I definitely have my favorite running route. 🗺️

And why would I change things up?  I LOVE my regular routine!

But recently, I did something unexpected:  instead of running clockwise (which is of course the far superior direction to run), I made a snap decision to turn right instead of left and what happened next was A TOTAL SURPRISE to me!

I had no idea where I was. 🤯

Houses that were usually on my right were now on my left!  The sidewalks were cracked the opposite way!  I literally had to read the street signs to know when to turn!

My whole brain and body were tuned in to that run in ways that they normally aren’t – all because I did the same ol’ thing just A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.

Which made me think of YOU, of course!

Are you always pushing play on your same favorite videos, repeating them until you can say the same things I do at the same times during the workouts?🥱

Maybe it’s time to let somebody else – me! – choose a weekly exercise routine for you.  The Mini Challenge is a fun and sweaty mix of (probably) NEW-TO-YOU WORKOUTS that can wake up your brain and your body to get you NEW RESULTS!

Here’s how the Mini Challenge works:

  • Choose a GOAL – weight loss (for weight loss) or body shaping (for maintaining your weight and improving your fitness)
  • Follow the WORKOUTS for your goal – if you’re losing weight, each day’s effort should feel very moderate and consistent (because weight loss over 50 is driven by eating the right number of calories consistently); if you’re shaping your body, one day will be an intense push, two days will be very relaxed and the rest of the days should feel mild to moderate. Changing your intensity is what changes your body.
  • The BONUS CONTENT is appropriate for either goal.
