It’s day two of restarting the blog and I’m going strong! I’m feeling super encouraged after seeing how many people visited me last night and today and are excited to see what’s happening in the world of BrookeOnADiet. Awesome stuff!?
The Great Sit-Up and Crunch Challenge
Today, I’m blogging about my latest fitness challenge for myself. I started this plan yesterday but I’m working my way to 100 push-ups and 100 crunches a day. I started out yesterday doing 50 of each in sets of 25. I did the same thing today. I will do 50 of each per day this week, and start adding 10 more each week until I reach 100 per day which should be sometime in April. I think it’s going to be tough to do once I get closer to 100 and because it will be “extra” to my regular workouts — but I’m committed. I feel like the push-ups will really help tone my arms (and what girls doesn’t some shame with their upper arms) and the crunches will help whittle away some of the belly I’ve still got happening. I’m getting tank top and bathing suit ready! I know you’re probably thinking it’s only March… But March leads to April and then May and then… Bathing suit season is officially upon us. So really, starting now is exactly perfect.
Who’s with me?
