Day 14: Get Equipped For Exercise | 30-Day Weight Loss-athon

Here we are at Day 14 of the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon.

All tasks in the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon are adapted from the 52 Weight Loss Missions program.

Read the steps first, then take 10 minutes to complete them.

Move fast, act quickly and stop over-thinking. Ready?

What You Need:

  • Pen
  • Paper
  • A shopping trip.

Step 1

On Day 13 we we tackled any actions needed to clear the way for exercising. Today let’s turn to supplies.

Let’s start by making a list of any clothes, equipment or other stuff you need for your exercise program.


  • Workout clothes
  • Supportive sports bra
  • Appropriate shoes – eg if running, get shoes that offer running support
  • Gym/sports bag
  • Water bottle
  • Towel
  • Sport-specific equipment – eg racquets, balls, skipping rope, swimming costume, boxing gloves, etc
  • iPod
  • Gadgets – eg heart rate monitor, pedometer, etc
  • Workout diary (to track your workouts and log improvements).

Step 2

Next, either head out now to collect your supplies, or make a date in your diary for this shopping trip.

If your budget allows, I recommend you get yourself the cutest workout clothes you can find. Also consider upgrading your water bottle, iPod, and exercise accouterments if they’re old or scruffy. Let’s get every bit of motivation working for you.

So… what’s on your list?

    walked my main mate this morning and have washed my runners and done a few squats to get my sore arthritic knee “oiled up”! I love the support of this programme it is terrific to hear people getting out there.

    After I filled out my calendar for the month, I took a picture of it on my phone so I can view the month at a glance. I could enter them in my phone calendar individually, but it takes too long & I don’t like that calendar much for viewing the month.

    Already done for the present for 52 Missions. On the lookout for 6 and 8 # weights for near and farther future though and will need new workout clothes in a couple of months as mine are wearing out….. Already on the list.

  4. Cathy Beale says:

    I have good shoes, I have clothes that will do the job – don’t have the money for new stuff at the moment & if I can stay motivated they won’t fit for long anyway, need to find a good workout app to help track improvements though. Must do my daily physio exercises for my ankle tendonitis – tends to set me back if I am in pain before I exercise.
