A friend of mine just completed a 100 day challenge of exercising, eating well, and generally being great to himself.
It has inspired me to do the same.
My diet is pretty good and I don’t want to mess with it right now as I’m nursing my little peanut… BUT I could certainly use more exercise in my life!
So here’s my 108-day challenge:
- 10 jumping jacks
- 10 high knees
- 10 burpies (ugg!)
- 10 push-up arm raise things (see this awesome video of my friend, Chris)
- 10 leg lifts
- 10 bicycle crunches
- 10 bridge lifts
- 10 russian twists
- 10 cobras with chest extension (again, see Chris here)
- 10 superman lifts
- and 8 deep breathes
These are all moves that can be done anywhere with no equipment and don’t take very long – this last point is especially important when you have a fussy baby that likes to be held constantly and only naps in 30-minute chunks. :)
Why 108 days? 108 is a very auspicious number and I like the idea of a day for every bead in my beautiful mala. 108 days brings me to August 3rd… Let’s do this!
What can you do for yourself in 108 days?
