I've read many studies that show that it is helpful to weight loss to change the way you workout. Doing the same thing all of the time means your body gets used to it and stops burning calories as efficiently during that activity.
I am guilty of always doing the same thing. I get into a routine and find it very difficult to change it. I suspect a lot of people have this problem.
So this week, I am making a challenge to you. Do something different. For just two exercise sessions this week, do something that you don't normally do.
For example, this week, I am going to do some in-line skating. Something I have not done in many years.
Now for the give-away:
The prize: A value tee from my shop that says, "Do Something Different!"
Share in my comments what you plan on doing. Then come back after you've done it and
share in my comments again how it felt to do. You have until April 14th, 2009 to enter. A random number generator will pick the winner on April 15th.
Not limited to just the US. Anyone can participate.
Extra entry: You may get one extra entry by linking me to or e-mailing me a picture of you doing the activity. (Pictures may be used in a future blog post.)
