I haven’t done a fitness challenge in a long time. I can’t explain how excited I am for this one! But, I want you to call all the shots and pull all the reigns during your challenge. I’ve built an awesome guide, but it’s up to you to set your goals! The challenge will start May 10th!
This challenge is to inspire you to MOVE. To me, that’s what fitness is. It’s simply moving. It doesn’t mean you have to run a million miles, lift heavy weights, or hike a million mountains; it just means to get moving! Go for a twenty-minute walk instead of playing on your phone, walk during your lunch break, take the stairs, hike on the weekends, ride a bike, or go out and dance. I even consider cleaning your house “fitness.”
My goal is to stay active by walking the dogs, going for light jogs, hiking, biking, and a light circuit every other day. My goal is to drink more water, more herbal tea, less processed foods, more lean protein, and focus on stretching each morning and evening.
This challenge will have awesome giveaways, a hashtag that’ll bring challengers together, and support from me! I’ll be looking out for your posts with the #SIMPLY40DAYS 😊
As I mentioned before, I want YOU to set YOUR goals! What do you want to get out of this challenge? Fill out the questions below before you start. I put mine on the front of my planner, so I can see it every day to remind me of why I’m doing this challenge. You could put it on your fridge, too!
I printed 40 of these worksheets so I can keep track each day! You could use a plain notebook to track your days, or use one of your favorite apps!
I filled out one of the worksheets as an example! Don’t forget to share yours with #SIMPLY40DAYS to win prizes!

For me, I love FUN fitness and it motivates me to get active more often! I love playing sports, hiking, walking the beach, walking my dogs, yoga, and swimming. If you can, find the fitness you love to participate in! Getting your friends involved helps as well.
I’ll be adding in some small circuits during the challenge. I hope to do one every other day! I’ll be in Hawaii for half of the challenge, so I’ll be using the beach and the backyard to complete them. I’m including some of my favorite AT-HOME / GO-TO workouts that you can do anywhere! If you don’t have dumbbells, you can use books, canned goods, filled water bottles, or anything with weight! Get creative with your surroundings!
Click here for a list of ten 15-minute workouts! You can print them and take them anywhere!
Below is a list of 24 workouts you can do every other day throughout the 40 days if you’d like a guide! I will be doing several of these.
I can’t wait to start this challenge with you! I’ll be getting my groceries bought, my goals set, and everything prepped for the challenge! I look forward to seeing your posts, the giveaways, and all of us reaching our goals together! Remeber, this is YOUR challenge! Everything is at your own pace 🙂 #SIMPLY40DAYS @SIMPLYTARALYNNFITCHALLENGE!
