Day 27 – Combine My Workouts
Today you’re challenge is to combine all the little exercises I’ve given you over the last 27 days:
1. Plank (30 – 60 seconds) x 3
2. Get some steps. It’s a gorgeous day so get out for a walk/run/hike
3. Do the Body Weight Workout from Day 14 (do it twice)
4. Do 50 Push-ups (x1 or x2)
5. Squat. Find the perfect song and squat til you drop. (Well, not really drop.)
You can always find a workout somewhere. #everydayistrainingday

Day 15 – Find (aka Make) time to Meditate, Pray, Reflect, etc.
Whatever suits your religion/belief/lifestyle, give it a try. Some health benefits of prayer and meditation are:
- Lower blood pressure
- Sense of Inner Peace
- Increased longevity
- Reduced symptoms of depression
- Alleviation of anxiety, stress, and pain
- Help with insomnia and physical symptoms associated with chronic illnesses
The time you take to pray or meditate can be your time or time you share with family. Personally, my prayer time is strictly my time. It’s personal time I have with God each and every day. And it has been my “practice” to pray every day since I was a small child. But, even throughout my busy teenage years, I maintained my prayer time. And I can’t imagine not having that time each night. It’s the time I take to reflect on the day and to be thankful for all of the people and things and abilities I have been blessed with. And most of the time I go to sleep with a clear head and heart.
Your time does not have to be prayer if that is not your believe. But you, too, can take the time to reflect on your life or your day. To be thankful for what you have or to look forward to what’s to come. What’s great about meditation and prayer is that it’s your time and you can make of it what you want.
If it isn’t something you normally practice, try it for a week. See if you get clarity and joy and inner peace or strength. At least take the time to reflect.

Day 12 – Get Your Steps In
It’s Saturday. Get outside and take a walk or a hike or a run. Hit the dance, floor with your friends, dance around your living room, do some yard work, go to the gym, roam around the mall. Just set yourself a goal and get moving.
Did you know that even just a few minutes of exercise can boost your mood? So go ahead and make Saturday a great day!
