Why do I love Beachbody on Demand? For $99/year I get every Beachbody program, including the new releases, and it’s all digital.
While I am loving my current yoga and walking routine, (Boho Beautiful has taken me to a new place with my yoga practice) I was feeling like I needed a challenge that would get my energy back up. I was lacking cardio and I could tell I was getting too comfortable being stagnant.
Enter Shaun Week.
I’ll be honest. I am NOT a fan of Shaun’s. He is HARD and cardio is not my favorite way of getting fit. I tried T25 and I hated every day until I finally just dropped it. As I talked about in my consistency post, it’s so important to find a fitness routine that you will do daily.
That being said, I figured I could do a week, and a week was exactly what I had before I have a family beach trip. Who doesn’t want to look their best in their bikini? If that’s not motivation, I don’t know what is!
I’m not done yet. Today is Day 3. I’m writing this now for two reasons: 1) accountability ( I know I’ll do all 7 days if I blog about it) but more so, 2) I’m so impressed with this program that I wanted to share now. I also wanted to post so I could maybe start a conversation with others also in Shaun Week. 😉
Know Your “Why”
I think fitness has to be more than just a bikini. That can be your short-term goal but you need a much bigger why in order to never “start over” again.
My “why” currently are my kids. I want to have the energy to jump around with them, play an impromptu game of tag at the park or run around when they get crazy. I know myself. I’m not a natural high-energy, run around person. I’d much rather chill. But I want to be an active mom and I’m finding that I need to keep up my cardio in order to feel physically fit enough to do just that.
Now that I wrote this, I’m off to punish myself and sweat. Seriously. This guy makes it look like a took a shower! But that’s a good thing. We’re meant to sweat. So don’t be afraid to get uncomfortable.
I’m curious: Are you doing Shaun Week? What’s your “why” for getting/staying active and fit?
Until next time,
