Trust me. The year’s not over yet. You can get a jumpstart on your new year resolutions and make November your fittest month yet by trying out this 30 day challenge: Napuplamo. Stay with me…
Have you heard about NaPuPlaMo? (nah-poo-play-moe)
I know you haven’t, cuz I just made it up.
NaPuPlaMo stands for National Push Play Month!
It’s 30 days of committing to fitness via daily exercise from the comfort of your own home.
The parameters are wide. The rules are few. Just push play on any workout for 30 days.
You can follow along with a yoga workout on youtube, use an old workout dvd that’s been collecting dust, just take a walk around your neighborhood, or do one of the many 30-day workouts you can find on pinterest.
It doesn’t matter!
What matters is that you push play on your exercise, daily.
Let’s make this a thing! You’ve heard of nablopomo and nanowrimo… but those are two initiatives that keep you hunched over at your computer screen. I’m proposing something new and active that won’t be too stressful.
January is right around the corner and it is the month where everyone re-starts their health and fitness routines, after making resolutions to lose weight and get fit. There is no reason not to make November your fittest month.
I’m down with resolutions. If we treat them as goals and work steadily toward them, we can make major change. However, most people don’t do this, and by February (or…mid-January) the resolution is by the wayside and many don’t try again until the following year.
I’ve mentioned before that there is no need to wait until the new year to start your health and fitness goals/plans. You can start right now. Like this very minute! (well, finish reading this blog post first though…and then share it with your friends…and then you can start.)
NaPuPlaMo is an initiative to start making healthier choices right at home. No gym membership is necessary. No big financial commitment. No crazy equipment needed. You just need YOU. …and maybe internet I guess, which you totally have because you’re reading a blog post right now.
