56. work out every day for one month for at least 45min a day

Jogging. Walking. Sit-ups. Crunches. Leg Raises. Planks. Squats. Push Ups. Mountain Climbers.

These are the some of things that I did this month and I finally crossed it off the list – work out every day for one month for at least 45 minutes a day.

When I wrote my 101 in 1001 list, I didn’t think to specify that I meant 45 minutes a day on weekdays, so I made myself exercise 45 minutes a day everyday, which takes more discipline than I usually have {just ask my husband who saw me doing some of these exercises at 10pm because I had put them off all day}.  This morning I finished the 30 days of 45 with a 5 mile run {well technically a 4.75 mile run and a .25 walk}.

My favorite benefit from working out everyday? This month I had considerably less headaches.  While I can’t say for certain that exercise was the reason, there are articles that support this {here, here, and here}, and exercise was one of the only two things I changed this month to my regular routine {the other being I drank 72 oz of water a day, which has also been linked to decrease headaches, more on that later}.

So here’s to hopefully a new habit sticking around and to headaches staying away.

How often do you workout? What are your favorite exercises?
