21DFC Day 15 – Create Your Fitness Mantra!

This is Day 15 of the 21-Day Fitness Challenge (21DFC) for Feb 2012. View all posts made during the challenge: 21DFC Overview.


Hello and welcome to Day 15 (Feb 17) of the 21-Day Fitness Challenge! 😀 We’re now in the last week of the challenge! 😀

Final Week – Are You Ready???

Now that we are in the last leg of the challenge, it’s time for us to give it all we’ve got and put all them athletes out there to shame!!!!! 😆 Are you ready to do that or not??? :dance: :dance:

Seriously speaking, this week is the golden opportunity for us to give it our all. Doesn’t matter if you missed a session, or two, or three, or even (gasp) skipped all your sessions in the past week. It’s all in the past now. What matters now is this new week and what we’re going to make out if it. Our objective is to make the best out of our remaining time together, both on the individual level with our fitness sessions, and on the group level with our daily comments, support and discussions.

If you haven’t been falling in the daily posts with your progress report, now is the time to do so. If you have been sharing your daily progress but haven’t been participating in the group conversations, now is the time to join in. No more holding back guys – let’s give this last week our best shot!

Week 3 – New Tips Format

Last week, the daily posts for 21DFC involved a reflective question to ponder over, as you stick to your daily fitness activity. Here’s a quick snapshot of the 7 questions posed to you during Week 2:

Thank you to all of you for your amazing responses! There have been some highly conscious discussions going on among the participants. If you haven’t been reading them / participating in them, I highly recommend you do that! You may well get something out of it for yourself.

Just like how I switched the challenge format from Week 1 (self journaling) to Week 2 (reflective questioning), I’ll be introducing a new format for this last week. For Week 3, I’ll be assigning daily tasks for us to do, on top of our fitness activities. These tasks will be short and to the point, fitness-related, and definitely helpful in helping us cultivate the life-long habit of being physically active. Think of it like 30DLBL, but for fitness.

Are you ready? Let’s get started! 😉

21DFC Day 15 – Create Your Fitness Mantra!

Mantra – An often repeated word, formula, or phrase, often a truism (Dictionary.com)

Do you have a fitness mantra? One that pushes you to keep going even when you may feel tired during your workouts? One that makes you want to go for your daily fitness session, even when your muscles may be sore, your mind may be weak, and your spirit may be unwilling?

I have a few mantras that do just that for me. They include, but are not limited to:

(In relation to something that’s physically challenging) “This is nothing. If others can do it, so can I.”

“I love exercising. It keeps me looking thin, healthy, sexy, fit and strong.”

“The more I do this, the better I get!”

(When I’m worn out mid-way during a run) “Slowly Celes – One step at a time.”

Your task for today is to create YOUR own fitness mantra(s). As a mantra, it should be short, to the point, and most importantly, inspiring – to YOU. Doesn’t matter if no one gets head or tail or what exactly it means, because it’s not for them; it’s for you.

Once you’ve created your mantra, share it with everyone in the comments section below!
