I finished the EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge this morning and I am so proud of myself. The last time I stuck with an exercise program for longer than a week was when I joined the Army (and that was a long time ago).
When I started this challenge, I couldn’t even exercise longer than 5 minutes without getting totally winded. Gosh, I remember for the first week afterwards my body was so sore that I thought I’d never walk straight again. And that was on the easy intensity level. After the second week, I was able to push myself to the medium intensity level and cycle through the workout two times. Sometimes I would even go for a full hour…
Now I can run up and down a flight a stairs without keeling over. I have more energy than I know what to do with and I genuinely feel better about myself.
So how did I celebrate my accomplishment? By beginning the 30 Day Challenge again, only this time I’m doing it at the high intensity level. As I stated before, I will start recording my stats again. Between this and the 21 Day Challenge with Pete Cohen, I know that I will meet my goal of being healthier.
