Anyone up for a little challenge?  A two-part challenge. Starting today!!

BTW, I never ever, ever, ever start anything midweek…this is so not like me.  I decided, what the hell, why wait till Monday when I’m ready for a challenge today?  So here we go!

Part 1 – It’s nothing crazy.  If you can do push-ups, squats & sit-ups, then you are good to go.   And if you can’t now, you definitely will once this 3 weeks is up.

Every day for 3 weeks complete each of the following exercises:

Not too bad, right?  You have all day to get it done.  Split it up.  Do half in the morning and the other half at night.  Or if your like me, I like to get it all done before I hop in the shower each morning.  Get your whole family involved.  It’s quick and doable.

Part 2 – Water.  Fun little tidbit – water is the second most popular drink behind soft drinks.  What about wine?

Staying hydrated.  How much water should we drink each day?  The rule of thumb is 8×8.   Eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters, or half a gallon.  I always remember I need half an ounce of water for each pound I weigh.  For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, that would be 75 ounces of water per day.  Bailey and I like to call it the “clear pee challenge” lol.  I have  a large water bottle I keep at my desk….I know that I need to drink at least 4 of them through the day.  Lately I’ve been busy and not even paying attention to my water intake.  So this is part 2.  Drinking your recommended water intake each day on top of the exercises.  Once again, not bad, right?

Working out always makes me feel powerful and energized.  How about you? Let’s chat in 3 weeks and see how we all did.  I hope that completing these goals each day for the next 3 weeks will make these goals, forever goals.  That after the 3 weeks is up – I just continue this challenge out of routine.  Push-ups + Squats + Sit-ups + Water = amazing combo 🙂

  1. You and Toni have been on my mind the last several weeks, because my FB memories reflect back on a running class we landed in together. That was an awesome challenge we achieved. With that said, I’m in!
