My friend and I decided to start a 30 day exercise challenge.  After looking at a bunch of different ones on the internet, we chose the ones we preferred and adapted them into this easy to follow challenge. 

After posting on Facebook that I had started an Ab and Squat challenge, many of my friends were interested in it and wanted more info.  So I thought I might as well post it here too!  So here goes! 

Please comment below if you decide to follow it and how it's going!  I'm on day 4 right now and day 3 was pretty difficult..  But I'm not as sore today as I was yesterday, so hopefully my muscles are starting to get used to this..haha!

I'm loving this though...It's just in time for summer and I love knowing exactly what I need to be doing every day.  I also try to do either some walking, biking or elliptical every day so that I have maximum results.  It's not all about "looks" for me though.  It's about getting in shape and being healthy!  It's about being able to run up the stairs without feeling like I ran a marathon..lol  It's about playing with my kids without getting tired after 2 minutes..  It's about having more energy!! 

We made sooooo many good changes in this house in the past few years when it comes to the foods we eat.  And now I'm finally ready to push myself and get in shape!  I'm just 31.. I need to be more in shape...for myself and for my kids! :)

*Sit ups should include a combination of regular sit ups, leg raises and sit up twists (Google these if you’re unfamiliar with them and to make sure you’re doing them correctly).  Try to do as many exercises in one “sitting”.  If you can’t finish, take a break and try to finish a bit later.  The more exercise are done at one time, the better the results. 

* Don’t forget to take “before and after” pictures of yourself and even measure yourself (waist, hips, thighs..etc) on day one and again on day 30 so that you can clearly see your  results!!!!  :)

*Check with your doctor before starting any exercise plan.
