Lorna Jane Fit Challenge: February Update

It has now been a month since I started the Lorna Jane fit challenge. I will admit I didn’t have my whole heart in it this month because 1.) I am marathon training and 2.) I went on a much needed vacation.

My marathon is in two weeks and I plan to go big or go home after that with the challenge, but I did manage to make some small changes this month thanks to the fit challenge.

I did several of the workouts included in my guide, and even tried a couple of new meals from the “nourish” portion. Something I definitely did a good job of this month is just getting outside. Even when it was cold out, I made it my goal to get outside and enjoy some fresh air. When I was on vacation I spent a ton of time outside, and I think in the winter months I forget just how much I enjoy it!

Because of my hip injury and physical therapy, I have been focusing a lot on not only the PT exercises given to me for my hip, but also the strength moves from the challenge and am already seeing an improvement in my stability and balance.

I am excited for March, I know once my race is over I can focus more on this instead of logging so many miles. I plan to keep up the strength work and hopefully add in some new recipes this month!

QOTD: Do you work on stability and balance?

Lorna Jane Fit Challenge

I love a good challenge! Since my marathon is in a month and then I don’t really have much on the schedule, I thought this challenge that lasts until the end of May would be a great one for me! What’s also great is you can join in too! There is also a Facebook group you can join to help keep you accountable. People are already on there posting great recipes, workout results, an being super motivating (one thing that really helps me!)


So, what is the Lorna Jane fit challenge?

It is 12 weeks of fun that is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The great part is, you don’t have to be a member of a gym to join in. All of the workouts are easy to follow and can be done in under 30 minutes, so no excuses ladies!

The 12 weeks have been broken into 3 phases with increased intensity. Each daily circuit is an all over, full body workout!
Every week there are two Outdoor Active Living days where you will get outside and get active! (walking your dogs, a hike with friends, etc.)

So head over to the website and join now! You will get a sweet membership kit that will help you thought the challenge:

  • The Lorna Jane Fit Challenge Move Guide: a 12-week Move challenge that will leave you feeling fit and fabulous!

Happy Friday friends! Spring has officially sprung in the south, I did some work outside yesterday because it was just too darn pretty. The dogs really enjoyed being outside too. We took a nice long walk down by the lake. Lots of new smells apparently.
