Several of you have worked with me before and are familiar with the “All Day Challenage” as I have issued it out before. For others of you, it will be a new venture. In either case, I encourage all of us to try this challenge today!
1. Set a timer on your phone to go off every hour.
2. Every time that timer alarms, it is time to move! Here are a few examples: 10 push-ups; 10 crunches; 10 jumping jacks; 10 squats; 10 lunges; walk down the hall and back to your desk.
If you are doing 10 push-ups every hour in your office for 8-10 hours, you have accomplished a massive feat. However, 10 push-ups alone takes literally no time at all! I recommend that you do not do this challenge every waking hour, but rather your “active” waking hours. I also recommend that you do not have to “drop and give me 10” in the grocery store if your timer goes off…however, if you are like my dedicated and good friend Moriah, you just might!
I also encourage you not to feel silly at work. Set the standard at the office. Be the “active” person! If you do not have the privacy you need to feel comfortable enough to excute squats or push-ups, get up from your desk and take that quick walk every hour. Also, you could try executing this challenge on a day off to see how it goes! Either way, there is always something to push your limits.
I am doing it too!
