What is wrong with me?! LOL! I love the motivation I have to finally start exercising and eating right! I think the 200 Squats Challenge and the 200 Situps Challenge work for me because they give me a goal to reach. Sure, I could probably set some of my own goals to reach, but they take the homework out of it, ya know what I mean? They teach you how to properly perform the exercises and give you the amounts to perform for each set and so on. I don’t know, I just really feel motivated by these challenges.
So, today I began the 200 Situps Challenge. And while they call them situps, they are actually talking about crunches or curl ups. I use my workout ball to rest my calves on while I do the crunches. I was able to pump out 75, although I’m not sure if my range of motion is up where it’s supposed to be. You’re not supposed to lift your lower back off the floor, and I didn’t, but I was only able to lift the upper part of my back, not the middle part….does that make sense? Anyway, I’m sure my range of motion will improve as I continue doing them. I think I will do them again tomorrow, starting out on week 1, Day 1. I think I will be a little less aggressive with these than I am with the squats…maybe…I really wanna lose the belly fat!!!
Will you join me in the 200 situps challenge? If so, please leave a comment and let me know you did so we can help keep each other motivated 🙂 Oh, and if you’re tracking your weigh loss progress, be sure to join the Plus Size Bloggers contest to win a Wii Fit Plus!
