Move Monday Series: Fitness Series

I’ve always worked harder at pursing my fitness goals when I had a social challenge or some of external accountability going, which is why I jumped on board the Sleekgeek #MoveMore challenge. It’s a simple way of getting us to move daily. Easy right? That’s what I thought but I soon found myself having to catch up on these “simple” exercises. I mean who doesn’t love a good burpee. *sarcasm at it’s best*

Monday 01/08/2016- This was easy I truly love star jumps and can do them all day. We were required to do 30, which I did in 3 minutes. I came to 4855 minutes in total

I couldn't meet day 2 challenge so I did it again yesterday #movemore #witnessthefitness #10950minutesofexercise

This was the first time any Zimbabwean soccer team had made to the Olympics (men or women).

101 Goal update

22. Save money consistently – This is now a monthly practise and I have debit orders set up for everything I need to save.
