Challenge Monday

Fitness Challenge

I challenge you to complete my Drop It Low workout at least 5 days this week

Why Why Why

  • Squats and lunges challenge your lower body, endurance and your core
  • Both exercises, squat and lunges, lift and shape your booty while slimming your thighs
  • Squat and lunges are two of the most effective exercises you can do

Materials

  • Just yourself

Directions

Drop It Low

Beginners – 10 reps each exercise, for lunges 10 reps each leg, 5 sets

Intermediate – 18 reps each exercise, for lunges 18 reps each leg 5 sets

Advanced – 25 reps each exercise, for lunges 25 reps each leg 5 sets

Be mindful of your knees

if you have any knee issues keep squats and lunges shallow 
if you experience any knee pain do not do this routine 

My Take

I don’t like to show off my body on this blog, but I have a serious bubble butt. The size is genetics but the shape my squat regiment. I’ve had random teenagers, older women, and couples stop me in the street to compliment my backside. Summer is almost here and you want to fill out those shorts, bikini’s, and sun-dresses. If you complete this workout at least 5 times a week you will see a difference by the end of the week.

Self Improvement Challenge

Processed with Moldiv
I challenge you to give compliments that have nothing to do with appearance at least 5 times a day everyday this weeks

Why why Why

  • As humans we are fixated on the outward appearance
  • Acknowledging what’s on the inside challenges you to look deeper and have a better appreciation for that person
  • Most compliments are focused on appearance
  • Giving and receiving compliments can improve self-esteem in yourself and others

Materials

  • A thoughtful mind

Directions

  • Give at least 5 non-appearance compliments everyday this week
  • You can give these compliments to the same person or even to yourself
My Take
Most of the compliments I receive is all about my appearance. As much as I appreciate the kind words it sadden me that people don’t look any deeper. I’m excited about this challenge, can’t wait to get started.
XOXO,
MARY
