And heeeeeere’s day 2!!! Wooooohooooo!
Ok. Whatever. Just trying to get some excitement stirred up for exercise! Did it work for you? ‘Cuz it really didn’t work for me.
I highly recommend getting a little notebook and writing down what you are doing each day. It’ll be awesome motivation later on…trust me.
If you are new here this is a 30-day challenge for very beginner exercisers. It’s meant to be non-intimidating. I’m creating it as I go based on what I can do each day as a late 40s woman who hasn’t worked out in a dozen or so years and is still about 50 pounds overweight. You can find the start of the of the challenge at 30-day Beginner Fitness Challenge: Day 1
2 Modified push-ups: I managed two. Barely. Maybe it was more like 1-1/2. Feel free to stay at one. No pressure here for you to move on. If one push-up was too difficult then continue to just do one a day until it’s a little bit easier. Or do the one push-up and then just go halfway down for the second on…hence the 1-1/2 push-ups. You can customize this challenge to be whatever works. You do you.
13 crunches: Remember, form is everything with crunches. The following video is a good demonstration of the crunch I’m talking about. He says his knees are at 90 degrees and they are so clearly not, but I shall forgive him for that since he is so nice to look at.
13 second plank: Remember to count slow, keep your body flat, and do not hold your breath!
5 squats: I kept this at 5 because I’m worried about my knees. Especially my left knee. Still unsure if I should be doing squats.
So how was that for day 2? I’m just super happy I managed to do something two days in a row! If you have spent any time here at all you know that consistency is not my strongest attribute!
