I’ve been toying with the idea of doing the TikTok famous 75 Hard challenge for a couple of months now. I love a good mental fitness challenge but I’m feeling like that challenge is a bit much for what I am looking for right now — and that’s change with longevity and sustainability. I love holding myself accountable by hosting challenges that other people can join too. Enter this free 60-day summer challenge for the months of June and July. This is not going to be an easy challenge. I really want to see what I can accomplish toward my goals in this time. Here are all the specifics should you care to join too!
LJF 60-Day Summer Challenge
This challenge will take place in the months of June & July 2021. You can have 1 “off” day should you choose to take it!
Daily Goals for the Challenge
Water Intake: 2 Liters + (~68 ounces)
Exercise: 1 hour of intentional exercise (split options: 1×60 min. or 2x30min.)
I will share optional workout plans each week. Feel free to think outside the box too! Swimming with your kids, yard work — all counts!
Stretch: 15-30 min. Minimum
So important – with daily exercise especially. I will share my favorite stretching videos.
Reading: 10 pages or 20 min. Audio
Read any book(s) of your choice. A lot of people use this time to read self-improvement books but I think that sometimes an easy beach read is good for your mental health too.
Writing: Make your own goal for this. Daily journaling and affirmations have many benefits, so I’d encourage you to work that into your plan. I am including this as a challenge to get back into daily writing for work and am committed to writing for a minimum of 1 hour each day with no distraction.
Eating: Follow a sustainable “diet”.
For me, this is not restrictive but intuitive. I only plan to limit sugar and eat in a calorie deficit.
Other: Spend at least 20 minutes outdoors (Wear your sunscreen!)
Take measurements before and after the challenge
Take weekly progress photos
A note on scales: Reflect on whether you want to track your progress using a scale for a tool. I personally weigh myself daily but it took me a long time to really allow myself to fluctuate without “taking it personally”. The scale is a tool but it’s definitely not the only one for measuring progress and success. Those measurements and photos are really going to show any real change!
SHARE!! The more you check-in, the more accountable and supported you’ll feel. We’re all in this together!! Post to your social media platform of choice and/or share within the LJF Facebook community. #LJF_60days
