I’ve taken up the squat challenge and I’m on day 13 today. Now by no means I have a perfect body or aspiring for perfect bod, I just want a healthy toned body. This challenge has not only motivated me but also made me realize my true potential.
Before starting the challenge I closely analyzed the daily increments in number of squats. Unfortunately I walked into this with preconceived notion that I might not be able to get past 100 squats. It sounds crazy, ridiculous and practically impossible for my body to cope with this.
Despite all my reservations and misconstrued notions I commenced the challenge. I must say day 2 and 3 was when I felt really sore. I expected that to last for rest of month due to daily increments. Anyway today I’m on Day 13 and I don’t feel sore at all. I guess my body told me it can take more and ready for the challenge. I’m more determined than ever to complete my 30th day with 250 squats.
In saying so, I haven’t stopped at squats only, it would be silly if my lower body starts looking toned and upper needs work. Therefore I have been simultaneously doing weight training for my arms. I just love and enjoy this whole process. After the challenge I intend on taking up the 30 Days Abs Challenge.
The 30 Day Fitness Challenges website has so many challenges that it can take a whole year. The word challenge in itself is motivating and preparing me to push over the edge to achieve it.
