Fitness and Learning Challenge Week 5 and Beyond: Sustaining the Momentum image

We are down to the last couple of days for this challenge. Let's keep up the momentum!

Week 5: Sustaining the Momentum

  1. Plan Next Month’s Routine: Based on this month’s experiences, plan a slightly more challenging routine for the next month.
  2. Reflect on Changes: Think about how the past month has affected your physical and mental well-being.
  3. Write a Reflective Letter: Pen down your experiences, challenges, and how you’ve grown during this challenge.

Week 5 Suggestions: Gradually increase intensity and duration and encourage regular practice of the activities you enjoyed the most.

  • Depending on capability, turn your walk into a brisk walk or introduce short jogging intervals.
  • For those who feel comfortable, try more challenging poses or Pilates exercises.
  • Create a simple circuit of exercises like squats, lunges, and light dumbbell exercises, with short rest intervals in between.
  • Engage in light group sports activities like badminton or table tennis for fun and social interaction.
  • Introduce small challenges, like a certain number of daily steps or a mini-triathlon spread over a week.

Remember, each exercise should be done according to your pace and physical capability. It’s essential to consult with a healthcare provider before starting any new exercise regimen, especially for those undergoing cancer treatment.

Start each day with planning on “putting your shoes on.” Once you’ve accomplished that, success is yours before stepping outside your comfort zone.
