108 days…

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:

  1. 10 jumping jacks
  2. 10 high knees
  3. 10 burpies (ugg!)
  4. 10 push-up arm raise things (see this awesome video of my friend, Chris)
  5. 10 leg lifts
  6. 10 bicycle crunches
  7. 10 bridge lifts
  8. 10 russian twists
  9. 10 cobras with chest extension (again, see Chris here)
  10. 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!
