    I've started doing crunches as well. Between the close grip and wide push ups (250 wide, 100 close) I've really been blowing out my arms and chest so I haven't been able to go every day with them. I just wait until the soreness goes away before getting back to it.

    I've also started incorporating crunches and 6 inch killers for my torso work. After the first day of that my tail bone was super sore so I've been putting a towel under my lower back when I do them.

    Down 32.5lbs.

    Be more active. Specifically, I want to actively exercise as opposed to passively exercise. Like do more than walking long distances.
    Remove soda from my diet. My soda drinking hasn't been excessive but I won't lose much by getting rid of it. (Except weight.)
    Stand by more often. I think I am too quick to jump in and try to solve things. It leads to over extending myself.
    I've successfully removed soda from my diet. It was a little hard to fo whenever eating out, but I managed. Broke it during two special occasions, but I don't hold that against myself. While I do think I fell off it for a bit, being more passive and standing by has been working out. Calorie counting has been a fail, but it made me realize that I have a very irregular eating schedule and that I have no idea what a balanced meal looks like. The health class did give me a brief intro, but I'm switching this goal from "start calorie counting" to "educate myself on proper nutrition". Flat out didn't meet the exercise goal. Will try again this month.
    I am currently looking for someone to give me an in depth typing. Willing to pay money.

    That's healthier anyway. (This comes from someone who got overly obsessed with counting.)

    Squat and Plank Challenge week 4 update

    Last week, I did:

    1,050 squats
    21 minutes of planking

    Tomorrow is my last day, so I'll be back with the tallies for the entire month, which will also include today which wasn't part of last week's numbers.

    K. Here it is.

    Peter's Squat and Plank Challenge Totals

    In the last 30 days, I did:

    3,295 squats
    53 minutes and 20 seconds of planking

    Day 30 alone was:
    250 squats
    5 minute non-stop plank (I did switch between front, right, and left side at 2, 3, and 4 minutes respectively, and finished the last minute at front again, but NO dropping to the ground in between).

    I plan on sustaining fitness by doing 50 weighted squats and a 3 minute plank 5 times a week, plus extra varied exercises to target all muscle groups.

    My bf says my legs and abs look different already.

    i've been meaning to get in on the plank challenge as i actually love planks (i used it as currency during workouts with my trainer to get out of doing things i hated doing)

    so... now you have inspired me to do this first thing in the morning.

    i shall glorify and blame you for my burning body.

    Hey look, it’s me doing my second Spartan Sprint:



    Giving you the ol’ Blue Steel - and by that I mean, the ol’ mud-in-my-eyes.

    Actually posting this to brag about two things. One, I could do 2-3 more obstacles this year than last year, AND could carry a much heavier bucket in the bucket carry*, AND my legs weren’t sore at all by the end (even though my upper body was wrecked). Two, this is the first time in my life that I’ve ever had visible arm muscles and I’m real proud.


    *I accidentally carried the "elite" womens bucket weight, which meant that instead of 50-ish lbs (which I struggled a LOT with last year), I carried 70-80 lbs (which I KIND of struggled with but only because my arms were so sweaty that the bucket kept slipping).
