Last year, around this time, I ran a 30 day challenge. It was designed for those busy moms who needed a jump start into fitness. Many of them had gotten away from training because of work, kids, schedules, etc. Some of them had been working out but just weren’t sure of the next step. And some just wanted a different focus… to move more from “toning” stuff to building some strength.
Some of my participants worked out in a gym, some worked out at home. So it worked for everyone! I’m running it again. The start of school is a busy time of year and sometimes we get caught up in all that is going on and our workouts fall by the wayside.
You up for a challenge??
Here’s what you need to do sometime this week:
1. Take measurements: Chest (around breasts, under the armpits), waist (around belly button), hips (around booty), thigh (midpoint between your hip and knee) and bicep (midpoint between your shoulder and elbow). These should all be relaxed/ non-flexed measurements.
2. Pushups Test: Time one minute and see how many pushups you can do in one minute. You can do them modified (on your knees) if you want. Just make a note if you modify so when you retest, you can do the same.
3. Situps Test: Time one minute and see how many situps you can do in one minute. (Or you can do a plank test.)
4. Take pictures: Yes. You have to do this. I don’t care if you share them with other people or not. Take them in a pair of shorts and a sports bra (or a bikini).
If you would like to send me your pictures and results, you can, for accountability purposes. (Think about it… if you send it off, you’ll feel more accountable to finishing the challenge!)
Sound good?? We will start on Monday, Sept 10th. Each day will have a workout and/or a nutrition challenge, tip or a recipe. Also, if you sign up for the newsletter (see over there on the right?), you will be reminded each week of what’s coming up and also a few things that won’t be posted to the site! (Score!)
See you Monday!
