On Wednesday, Corinne of SkinnedCarTree told me about a 40 day fitness challenge she had signed up for. After reading her post and getting in touch with DWFitness, I was ready to sign on the dotted line. Back at the start of the month I challenged myself to work-out everyday through February...and it hasn't been going so well.
Turns out I don't do things well when I do them alone.
Already, #FitnessRevolution has a solid groups of dedicated members who have all started to get to know one another and support each other on this journey. And with a fair few bloggers being involved, I don't want to let the side down!
The idea is, instead if giving up something for Lent, we take on something - fitness. We commit ourselves to following a work-out plan provided by DWFitness for 40 days!
I'm scared just thinking about it! But we can do this! We can start a #FitnessRevolution - YES for the fitness cheese!
Week One of the #FitnessRevolution challenge has come to an end so I figured a round-up was in order! (The challenge started on Wednesday so this week looks a little shorter!)
Day 1 - Today's challenge was a 20 minute jog - Nailed it! I paired a 20 minute jog with a 20 minute total body work-out on the cross trainer.
Day 2 - 3 x 20 squats - Done!
Day 3 - Plank - Time held: 1 minute. I really didn't think I could hold my plank for that long! We do a lot of floor work in my exercise class which included planking, turns out it must be working!
Day 4 - 3 Minute Challenge; How many of the following can I do in one minute?
Jump Squats: 30
Star Jumps: 50
Sit Ups: 21
I found this really difficult! I don't think I had the best posture for doing my jump squats and by time I got to the sit-ups I was shattered!
Day 5 - Rest - I went ahead and did two 20 minute yoga sessions (Yoga with Adriene), I haven't done much yoga lately so I really want to get back into it, it's a great way to just spend a little time getting me back to me.
