How to Stay Motivated in the 75-day Soft Challenge

  • 2 min read

So you’ve decided to embark on the 75-Day Soft Challenge. That’s great!

While it’s certainly more manageable than its predecessor, the 75 Hard Challenge, maintaining any diet and exercise routine can easily prove difficult. It takes a commitment to get results. 

Here are some tips for keeping your goal in sight and making it happen.

Establish a Routine

Consistency is key. The two most important steps you can take out of the gate are establishing a daily routine and starting each day with a plan of action.

  • Schedule your workouts
  • Decide when you’ll do meal prep
  • Practice mindfulness
  • Incorporate variety in your routine (try mixing up the workouts, experimenting with new recipes, adding outdoor activities)

A dynamic and engaging routine can help you stay motivated and inspired to complete the challenge, which asks you to do the following for 75 days:

  • Complete one 45-minute workout per day (with one day of active recovery each week)
  • Drink approximately one gallon of water per day
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet and save the alcohol for social events
  • Read ten pages of any book per day

Make Healthy Eating a Breeze

Fueling your body with nutritious, wholesome foods is essential when participating in the 75-Day Soft Challenge. It’ll help sustain your energy levels and maintain focus. 

Signing up with a meal prep service is one of the easiest ways to ensure your refrigerator is filled with food that can nourish the body and soul.

Connect, Share, Inspire

Staying motivated with any endeavor, especially the 75-Day Soft Challenge, is easier when you share the journey with others. 

Consider joining online forums, participating in workout classes, and surrounding yourself with people that motivate and inspire you.

Share your successes and challenges with others, be an inspiration for others, and always remember that any setbacks you experience are an opportunity for growth and learning. 

Keep Your Eye on the Prize

Staying motivated throughout the challenge is not about perfection. It’s about the progress you make and the perseverance you have to reach your goal. Eat better, focus on your fitness, and become stronger and healthier.

Embrace the process, celebrate small wins, and be gentle with yourself if you stumble anywhere along the way. You’ve got this!
