I Survived the 30 Day Squat Challenge

Image

Yes I survived the 30 Day Squat Challenge. Guess what? I am doing this challenge again. I did see results from doing this challenge the first time around. My booty is getting rounder (no I’m not showing you any pictures of that).

ImageThe second half of the 30 Day Squat Challenge really challenged me. LOL! I had to break out the David Morales Ministry of Sound Session Seven just to get through the workout.

ImageI have added the resistance bands to the squat challenge so I can do some upper body. This will add more resistance to the squats too.

ImageI have also added the ankle weights. I alternate days in which I use them.

Wish me luck!

Getting Back on the Fitness Wagon

Once again I’m getting back on the fitness wagon. I usually drop off a little in my fitness routine during the Winter months. I’m just not motivated during that time of the year. I made a promise to take better care of myself. I am making it a point to carve out more time to exercise. It has always been easier for me to exercise once the weather warms up.

I am easing my way into things by participating in the 30 Day Squat Challenge. Here is the link http://www.fitsugar.com/30-Day-Squat-Challenge-30806625

One of my Facebook friends suggested a group of use should to this challenge. So far so good. 😉 It is always nice to have a positive group of people around you during your fitness journey.

I also purchased two pairs of running shoes from Famous Footwear.

As always consult with your doctor before you start any fitness program.
