*Note: I’m writing this a little late, so by the time you read this, it’ll be day 22!
Just wanted to do a little check-in to let you know how things are going with my 100 Days of Running Challenge! Have you been following? I hope so. If you need to catch up on the latest happenings, check out my original post about this challenge here. Continue reading →
As I’ve mentioned before, running is a form of personally prescribed therapy for me. I’ve been a runner my entire life and sometimes after a run I feel like a completely new person. I feel accomplished and ready to take on the rest of the day. It’s not always like that, but for the most part I enjoy it and find it necessary for my sanity. So, I’ve been thinking for a while now about how I can challenge myself through running. I know… running and training for races is already a challenge, but what I want to do will be a bit more personal and solid. Continue reading →
Another oldie but a goodie! This move will work your legs something serious. Glutes, hamstrings and quads.
Day 25: Plank Push-Ups!
By now, you guys know I love core moves. The plank is one of the best moves for your core – EVER. Today’s move is a great variation to just your standard plank: The Plank Push-Up! This is easily executed in a few simple steps. It works not only your core, but your upper body as well. Especially your shoulders. Let’s get that core nice and strong with the Plank Push-Up!

Moving right along, folks! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! I know I did. Did you go out and do any Black Friday shopping? Well, while you’re standing in line this afternoon, burn some calories and tone those legs with the front lung and twist! This one’s very easy and engages your core and obliques when you twist. (I LOVE working my core! Can’t you tell?) Let’s do it! Continue reading →
FROGGER BURPEES! This is definitely a fat burning, calorie-blasting cardio move that will help you work off some of that Thanksgiving turkey, stuffing, dessert and pies!
This is REALLY going to target not only your core, but your glutes (butt). Specifically your gluteus minimus and medius.
It’s Day 19! NINETEEN! We are almost done! 10 more days after this. INCLUDING THANKSGIVING! Yup, we will be #MakingMoves on Thanksgiving too! So, let’s get to it!
This is another oldie, but a goodie! This is a great variation to the standard crunch by making it slightly more challenging. It also focuses directly on each side of your core. We’re almost half way through this challenge and everyone is doing so great and hanging in there. It’s tough but just remember: if your body isn’t challenged, it won’t change. Also remember you can use these moves even after this challenge is over to up the ante with your workouts. So, let’s get to it! Continue reading →
It’s Day 6 and we’re moving right along! What’s more important is that today is Election Day! I really hope you all got out to vote this morning or are planning to tonight. I pray this election turns out the best for everyone in this country. So… in honor of today’s buzz words (election, vote, ballot, etc.) I thought I’d make today’s move V(ote)-Ups! Or much better known as V-Ups. This move is intense and really takes some core strength so be patient with it and do your best. Remember, in this challenge, you are supposed to TRY and do 20 of each move. I know you can do it! Continue reading →
