So why did I decide to do this
insane challenge? There are several reasons why.
Possibly the most important reason is
because I felt ready to actually push myself to do such a challenge.
Since May 2013, I made a conscious
choice to change my eating habits. I did not want to go on a diet, which I'v been on before, and while I've lost weight, I also gained it back not really learning my lesson.
No in May I spoke to my brother,
who is a personal trainer, to create a meal plan for me. It was hard, very, very hard to put myself on the regime since I was a 1 to 2 times a day eater.
Fast forward a couple of months of
eating less but more times a day, and for the most part making healthier choices and intermittent exercise (walking) I felt really good as well as had more energy. Along with that my weight loss was a thing of beauty, with the exception of one thing: the loss of my butt.
That is the second reason I
decided to do the insane 30 day squat challenge. I look at it as a way to get into another established routine like my eating, something that will help me in the long run. Also I want my booty back.
I am on day 14 and I am shocked that I completed 130 squats
so far (day 13). The goal at day 30 will be 250. I don't feel a change in my butt, however doing the squats with the eating and the occasional walking, I can say that my thighs are losing inches. How do I know this? My pants are fitting better around my thighs. It feels damn good.
Would I recommend anyone take on
this challenge? No. Unless you feel that you are in a good spot with yourself, then that is entirely up to you. For me it is a good way to challenge myself to keep going and to see how far I can truly go.
