Challenges (No Kidding)

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I decided to challenge myself a bit (Thanks Shay for the motivation). Needless to say, "Challenge" is an understatement. I read the challenges and thought, "Oh, easy peasy!". Um, no. I have a long long way to go to be able to compete with these challenges.


Planks: As long as you can hold it (30 seconds)

(3X Challenge)
10 pushups emoticon
20 situps emoticon
25 squats (I was only able to do 15!)
20 lunges(10/leg) emoticon They weren't pretty, but I accomplished it.
80 jumping jacks (I was only able to do 25)
60s wall sit ( I was only able to do 25 seconds)

You are supposed to do that routine 3X. I only did it ONCE! I was huffing and puffing by the end of it. So much for "easy peasy". I guess that is why it is a "Challenge".

I'm just going to look at this as my starting point and build myself up until I am able to complete this challenge! Wish me luck!

    LOVE IT!

    See, it IS challenging! I thought 'easy peasy' too but when you try it, holy cow! You just die!

    I forced myself through all 3 rounds of it, even if it took me nearly 2 hours to complete it and those wall sits?!?! KILLER!!!

    I really hope you stick to it and keep me posted! Would love to hear how you are doing! I actually have a FB group open to my friends and only 2 of them I know have done and are doing this challenge! Maybe join??? :)

    Thanks for at least trying it! and you will improve. trust me, I have!

    That sounds hard! I always thought I had really strong legs, but doing the lunges and squats in Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred had me singing a different tune. Hang in there! emoticon
