Today is Day 12. 

Yes.. that means that I’ve been doing 100+ squats already.  They are KILLER!

But I have noticed that the first 20-30 have been getting so much easier.. thank  God for that!

I’ve been so good that when we went to my brother’s place in Los Angeles this weekend, I was doing 105 squats in his apartment! 

I think the reason I’m pretty determined to do this is because I am noticing results.

Not only is it getting easier, I’m not waking up the next day sore anymore.  My body has gotten used to it and so it does make it easier to pick up the next day.

Also, I’ve been making better choices on what foods to eat and how much I intake, so I am starting to see a difference.

I’ve already lost the 4 lbs that I gained from being non-active for several months. 

One day at a time…

On yesterday’s blog post, here, I mentioned that I was going to work on my diet and just let the exercise eventually find it’s way back into my system..

Around Thursday of last week, I learned about the 30 day squat challenge..

Hubby and I decided to do this together.. which I LOVE.  I love that we are doing this together.. it’s a bonding experience and since we are doing it at home, M can watch us doing it..  She likes when one of us holds her while squatting.. And she also likes squatting herself.. by the way.. she’s really good! 

Hubby and I are on Day 7.  It’s a challenge.. those squats hurt!  I look forward to the Rest days like no body’s business.

This challenge is great because it goes along the lines of my “one day at a time” mentality.  I don’t look at it as an entire 30 day challenge.  I look at them like 30 separate daily challenges..

So today, I tell myself.. “Today, I will do 80 squats.”  I have to do it because I said I would do it today.  I don’t think about the resting tomorrow.  I dont’ think about starting up again on Friday.. I think about only today.

I’ve been eating much better, and slightly smaller portions.. its is falling into place without the pressure I put on myself earlier this year..

I weighed myself yesterday.. 145lbs.
