I love reading other fitness/health/nutrition blogs. I find a lot of inspiration and motivation from reading other blogger’s fitness journeys. I feel very connected with other bloggers like me who post about their ups and downs, their good days and bad, their struggles and triumphs. I was reading this post from Tammy at Insatiable Thinker. In her post, she talked about doing a 30 Day Squat Challenge. She had a link on her post to Fitnessbunny123, who made the challenge. I followed the link to this post. I was really intrigued with it and decided to accept the challenge as well.
I look at the squat schedule I will have to follow for the next 30 days. I will be the first to admit it is very daunting (since I will be doing the 30 day Squat challenge in conjunction with my BeFit in 90 workout). I honestly can’t picture myself doing 245 squats in ONE day. I just can’t see it…. and that’s why I want to do it. I want to prove myself wrong. I hate hearing the small voice in the back of my head whisper “you can’t do that. its too hard. too much. impossible for someone like you”. I love to challenge that negative side of me and put it to shame. I don’t give in to it. I fight back. I will never live the healthy lifestyle I want if I listen to the negativity and the “I can’t’s”.
There’s no time like the present so I have already started Day 1 of the 30 day Squat Challenge. The first day starts with 50 squats. I did all 50 of them. My legs were feeling the burn and the last 10 were difficult but not TOO much. 50 squats is probably the most squats I have ever done at one time. My legs felt like jelly afterwards. I’m nervous of how I will feel tomorrow but I know I can do this! You have to build muscle to burn fat!
Are you starting any challenges this week or month? Are you currently doing a challenge? Do you want to start this challenge with me? Let me know! I will be letting you know what I think of the challenge and how I feel throughout!
