90 Day Challenge- Epic Fail?

90 Day Challenge- Epic Fail or Moderate Win?

So back in March of this year I decided to try and move forward with one of my many crazy ideas and issue myself a 90-day exercise/fitness/well being challenge.   The big question at the end of all this is, did I achieve anything?

Let’s look at how it started:

The plan
Days 1-30
Daily Yoga, meditation(15 minutes or more), and martial arts
The goal is to be regularly engaging in 45 minutes of physical exercise by the end of day 30.
Large diet changes are not on the agenda here.
Days 31-60
Continuing in the above, but do 30-60 minutes of meditation, and 60-90 minutes of physical exercise by the end of day 60.
Adjust any diet/food issues during this time.
Days 61-90
Continuing in all of the above, but have worked up to 60-90 minutes of meditation, and 90-120 minutes of physical exercise by the end of day 90.
Hopefully having re-developed daily healthy living habits by the end of this odyssey.

I’m not making any attempts here at sounding flowery or making excuses.  Here’s how things turned out…

In no particular order, I tightened my diet up a bit more.  I still indulge, but I’ve adjusted my carb/fat/protein ratio a little bit to account for trying to be more lean.  I’m exercising 4-5 out of 7 days.  I know it isn’t every day, and perhaps I’ll get it to every day.  The days I’m not “exercising” I’m usually walking a lot on my breaks during work.  Pokemon Go has been a big help for that.

The exercise I am doing is weight lifting, basic martial arts movements(cardio), and chinese saber.  I am meditating, but not enough for me to say that I’m really meditating with any regularity.  I’m also not doing yoga.

So that’s it.  Short and sweet summary.  I think it is a moderate win.  I certainly didn’t blog as much about it either.  I think I’m probably just a terrible blogger.  I really don’t know how you people do it.

At any rate, I think it’s moderate win because I am in better shape than I was when I started, I am exercising more, and I think overall it’s helped me and my family because we’re doing a lot more things together and that’s always a good thing.

So keep on trying with whatever you do.
