Take the 7 day Fitness Boot Camp Challenge!
This is something I like to do for myself when I feel like I’m losing motivation. I plan out a few days of seriously putting effort into my fitness and healthy, take accountability for what I’m doing and remind myself why I love the activities I do! This can be seriously motivating but it also helps you get into healthy habits and get excited about your workouts.
Try making a prize at the end of it, you could even assign prizes based on how many checked boxes (both workouts and daily goals) you completed!
You can do this any week you have enough time for it so whether you start tomorrow or save it for in 2 weeks when midterms are over it’s something you can start any time!
