#100FITDays - Day One-Hundred
You have reached the end of your 100FITdays challange.
How do you feel? Hopefully, like me, you will feel fit, healthy, happy and less stressed than you did on August 4 when we started our journey. You will look better too.
Looking better is a big motivator in terms of fitness, but while I am happy to have reached my goal of getting back to my pre-baby shape and weight, but what I am really grateful to 100FITdays for is that it gave me the motivation and the tools to manage the stresses of a busy life, to manage my time, my work and my parenting responsibilities properly, and, of course, for giving me back that delicious healthy, strong feeling you get from being fit.
I really do find that everything falls into place a lot easier when you are exercising first thing in the morning and eating well. The discipline that is required tends to bleed into other areas of your life. You work better, you parent better, you make better decisions, you are more available to friends and family.
Our challenge may be up, but we are hoping that you will continue to investing in your health and wellbeing by continuing the 100FITdays lifestyle.
Between fitmagazine.ie and Health&Living magazine every Monday, we will continue to give you the tools and knowledge to support a fit lifestyle and we hope that you continue to give us feedback so that we can serve you better. Our mission is to show you that the benefits of a fit lifestyle are available to everybody, regardless of budget or time constraints, who is willing to work hard and put in the hours.
Yesterday, in Health & Living magazine you will have seen Siobhan Byrne's article on foam rolling. We have another article on this next Monday and after that we will be giving you workouts that you can do at home with dumbbells and/ or a kettlebell.
For those of you reading this who didn't follow the plan - the 100FITdays programme will live on in fitmagazine.ie and we will be available to provide support and answer any queries so feel free to jump in any time.
Or you could join our FITJanuary campaign - which will be even bigger and better!
