31 Day Challenge Ends (Fresh Start for November- Invite!)

Congrats to all of you who have made it through 31 Days of Fitting in Fitness!
Congratulations, also, to all of my Blogging friends who have made it through the Nester's #31Days! Thanks to the Nester for hosting this great challenge.


Our 31 Day Challenge is over today. I have been pondering our next phase from the beginning. The Holidays will be upon us in the blink of an eye, and our best intentions to fit in fitness will be squeezed out by festivities, fellowship and fun. I have so much more I want to share with you and yet, realistically, my desire for you and myself as well, is to keep it simple, straightforward and DONE, with regard to fitness. In other words, by "done" I mean that you are not thinking about fitting fitness in, not talking about it, not admiring the plans of others BUT actually to be living out small steps to building a new habit into your (our) life (lives)- or reviving an old habit that has died, as the case may be!   

So, instead of making a new plan for November, after a brief conversation (banter on Facebook) with Susie, I think that the best plan for November is to  DO the Fitting in Fitness Challenge  AGAIN! From the top, and for those of us who did it, we can do it better, for those who considered it but bailed halfway through - here is your FRESH NEW START!

There were a lot more topics in fitness I did not cover, so much more I wanted to share,  BUT maybe could do -going forward. I really felt led to write more on, motivation, inspiration and encouragement with regard to the topic. There were many thoughts, prompts, partial drafts and ideas I had that I felt, due to time constraints and other limitations, unable to share.

Also, honestly, this month has been a very difficult month, personally. The last two weeks of our challenge have been increasingly difficult and I fell short on the C25K routine in Week 4 (only squeezing in 1 of the 3 workouts). I missed 2 days in the last 2 weeks of The Core and More Challenge and did not bother to try to catch up and a couple of times I combined days. There, see. Not perfect. But, November we can try again. Which leads me directly to you...

Will you join me in November as do a Second Chance Fitting in Fitness Challenge?

Shall we join together and take on the Holidays by Fitting in Fitness, aiming for a little or a lot, adjusting as we need to make it doable, right in the middle of our, busy, bloggy, blustering, right NOWs? Something is better than nothing, and who doesn't love a Do Over?


In December, I am considering a 12 Days of Fitness something- stay tuned for more on that one. Meantime I will be working on our January Fitness Challenge- which I thought I would originally do ast the end of October's Challenge, but as you now know, am opting out of that plan. 

As for me, I am skipping the Optional Pre/Post Test and will just jump in fresh tomorrow with a new month of Fitting in Fitness:

 Come what may, 
come what might- 
if you are still not in, 
now is the time to make it right! 
Let's Do it! 

Grab the Scribd Document here or e-mail (dawn.paoletett@gmail.com) me for the Fitting in Fitness Packet. 

Let me know if you have any questions and I will see you for the Sunday Post, for sharing conclusions, thoughts  from the 31 Day Journey. 

Thank you for dropping in, offering words of encouragement and for your participation (however frequent or infrequent). May God bless you with health and wellness all of the days of your life...and secure you in His grace and truth forever.
