If you’re a chronic migraineur, then you’re probably very much out of shape like I am. I spend 80% of my life propped up in bed due to my pain. It’s daunting to just THINK about working out. However, on my last doctor’s visit I was told to exercise. As a result, exercise is the 5th step of my “My-graine” Action Plan; and now I’m challenging you to join me (whether you’re a migraineur or not) – once you get the okay from your doctor of course.
- Follow this 30 day beginners Blogilates calendar. Only workout on tolerable days. If you skip a day or days due to intense migraine symptoms just pick up where you left off – this is not a race.
- Tweet to @migrainepuzzle & @blogilates each time you finish a workout and add a link featuring the workout you just completed with the hashtags #GFDCM #Blogilates. E.g. here’s a tweet I posted today: Just finished these #PopPilates #workouts despite #chronicmigraine. Started pain level 6 still at 6 so far. http://www.blogilates.com/beginners-2-0-day-2/ … #migraine N.B. if you don’t have migraines but want to participate tweet to @migrainepuzzle & @blogilates hashtags #GFBC1 (see more hashtags below) and #Blogilates
- When you’ve completed the beginner’s challenge, write a blog post about your progress (let me know to read it) and then start one of the other 30 day challenges on the Blogilates website. Each time you finish a challenge write a post and start another.
N.B. This challenge is for six months and starts TOMORROW – July 18, 2015. If you prefer to do another type of workout that’s fine. Just tweet what you’ve done to @migrainepuzzle #GFDCM/GFBC1 (if you’re not a migraineur), and after 30 days write a blog post and let me know to read it. Oh and don’t worry if you’re joining us late. It’s never too late to start a healthy routine. Now please spread the word!!! 🙂
P.S. Here’s the breakdown of the hashtags to use.
Chronic Migraineurs: #GFDCM – Get Fit Despite Chronic Migraine
Episodic Migraineurs: #GFDM1 – Get Fit Despite Migraine
Non-Migraineurs: #GFBC1 – Get Fit Blog Challenge
Headache Disorders – #GFDHD1 – Get Fit Despite Headache Disorder
