Starting Saturday, March 6th
What is this Challenge all about? Why 50 Days of Movement?
Well as mentioned above our Mental Resilience is so closely tied to our Physical Resilience. Moving our bodies in an intentional way, making time for ourselves to breathe with purpose gives a much needed break each day. As my partner would say I am a nicer version of me when I fit my movement in.
What prompted this? Well, with our recent second lockdown and closing of Recreation and Fitness to the general public, I needed to find a way to motivate myself to keep moving so I set a goal of 50 Days of Movement.
I switched between my own workouts, ones on Pilates Anytime and some by @OilandGrain. I took time lapse videos each day to push myself to not quit, which was tough considering the super busy start to the year, but the personal commitment and the daily posting helped keep me accountable to my goal.
When I was just over half way done I knew I wanted to share my experience with others so I reached out to those that I knew either personally, from school, work (Calgary being a BIG Small Town) and those that I have admired from afar.
I was lucky enough to have an amazing group of Hosts agree to join me in this Challenge.
