I know monthly challenges don’t fix anything but I really enjoy doing them as I feel a great sense of accomplishment once I finish and even if I don’t get to do a proper workout on certain days I still feel like I’ve achieved something, this month I’ve chosen a few different ones ^ plus of course the 30 day abs and 30 day squats beginner level 2
wish me luck and feel free to join me!
Okay peeps this is what I’m doing for the next 30 days. March 1st- April 1st. I would encourage anyone who wants or needs motivation for this kind of stuff to join in. I encourage you to take progress pics so that you can see where you are. Only post them here if you feel comfortable with that, but you don’t have to. You are doing this for you! Most of you know what I look like already so I probably will post pics for motivational reasons. I threw some cardio in because increasing the heart rate is good exercise. A good diet will be key as well to see results!! I created the flexibility part of the challenge and if that’s something you are interested in I also say give it a try. *note the flexibility challenge is designed for at least 90 days to see results*
This will be MY order for each day (do whatever is comfortable for you):
30 Jumping jacks
Abs Exercise 1
30 sec burpees
Abs Exercise 2
30 sec Mountain Climbers
Abs Exercise 3
30 sec High Knees
Abs Exercise 4

Happy Saturday peeps!!! Welcome to leg day! All the exercise will be focused on the legs and butt today, so make it worthwhile. Remember to do this thing at your own pace, but motivate yourself to complete the day. Complete the day. Just decide you are going to do it, and do it! You got it. Break up the reps… take a break. If it takes you 2 hours, that’s OK!! No judgment here! This is about YOU. YOU have to want it for YOU!
Hard work brings positive results!

****BANG FOR YOUR BUCK REP…. (MOTIVATE YOURSELF TO REPEAT ONE EXERCISE FROM THE SECOND SET TO ACTUALLY COMPLETE THE DAY* I know you can do it. Motivate YOURSELF to get it DONE!!
I couldn’t find anyone to do it with but I’m proud of myself for doing it. My boyfriend sat on the couch and tried to motivate me verbally since he didn’t want to do it and wouldn’t help me ( holding my feet or distracting the dog from thinking I’m playing).
I need to stop waiting for others and start getting things done myself. I’m not happy with how and look and it’s my job to change it, no anyone else’s.
How do other people deal with lack of support or motivation from others? I always turn to tumblr
