When you think of February, hearts may come to mind – after all it is the month of Valentine’s Day. What a great focus for our newest HelloExercise challenge. We want to strive for a healthy heart in all areas – spiritually, emotionally and physically. The February HelloExercise Challenge will help you focus on your physical health.

This Month’s Exercise Challenge

If you recall from the mini HelloMornings MOVE Challenge in January, we talked about setting S.M.A.R.T. goals and making exercise a priority as a way to honor God with our bodies. In February, you will have an opportunity to set a personal goal and work towards achieving that goal, while being encouraged through the HelloExercise Tribe Facebook group.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Determine your goal for the month.
  2. Share your February goal below in the comments. For added accountability, join the HelloExercise Facebook group. On Wednesdays, there will be a GOAL CHECK-IN status posted in the HelloExercise Tribe’s Facebook group, where you can share your successes or setbacks.
  3. Share your progress throughout the weeks, and at the end of the month, there will be a few HelloExercise Tribe prizes/giveaways to celebrate our successes! (Note, this is only for those who participate on the Facebook group.)

More challenge details and sample goals are available in our free February exercise tracker. Subscribers, you will find the link to the tracker below this post in your email or RSS reader. If you would like to become a subscriber of our updates, you can do that here, and the link to download the challenge will be emailed to you after you confirm your subscription!

Share your goal with us below! (And, if you want to be a part of the challenge for a chance to win some free exercise tools, head on over to the HelloExercise Facebook group and share your goals there, too!)

    My goal is to begin re-taking off the 25# I lost last year and continue until I reach 90# lost by establishing a regular exercise routine and better eating habits. My goal for February is to walk an average of a mile a day and begin biking again as the weather permits. My body belongs to God and I haven’t treated His property the way it deserves to be treated. Thank you Hello Mornings for the much needed accountability.

    My goals for February are to get moving, no matter what it is. Spend more time with Him and in His word, and to cut out sodas. Monsters, and other energy drinks will be my next step. Baby steps, here!! lol I eventually want to get rid of all caffeine and carbonated drinks, that will happen in time. Right now, I need to get spiritual life and my physical life back in shape, so that’s what I’ll be working on this month.
