DAY 1

I wanted to issue myself a 30 day challenge to UP MY LEVEL of exercise a notch or two.

~~~   THE GOAL:  30 days alternating Peak 8 exercises* and 100 squats.

I put up my picture of me today at 164 pounds, and putting this out there, so I keep accountable to doing the full 30 days.

What are the Peak 8’s? 

*Peak 8 exercises can be any exercise I choose, but pushing it as hard as I can for 30 seconds, then resting until I recover completely.  Then do again (8 times total).

So in this 30 days, I will alternate between…

15 days of Peak 8 exercises (every other day) in the following formats:

~ Stairs in preparation for my Grand Canyon hike training
~ Stationary cycling
~ Skating (roller :)) because I LOVE IT!  And I’m a product of the 70’s and Xanadu!!!
~ Possibly some rebounding (jumping on the trampoline)

And 15 days of 100 squats on the days in between

~.~.~.~.~.~.~

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

1.     I’ve been curious to see if what my chiropractor says is true.  He tells me that I only need the Peak 8’s every other day for my body’s optimal health (as far as exercise is concerned).  I’ve never quite gotten to that point of keeping it up faithfully.

2.    NOW, that I’m pretty stable on a high raw vegan diet, I’m ready AND CRAVING to up my exercise and see what happens!  

Even though I’ve been high raw vegan for over a year, my weight has lingered around the same 160’s lately, perhaps because I don’t have a consistent exercise routine, perhaps because I haven’t been raw/vegan long enough, etc, etc.  But I’m ready and motivated to up the exercise to what I believe is a healthy minimum (more than what I’ve been doing).  I don’t think it’s overdoing it (I’m not out running for hours or something, no offense to those who like that).

3.    Plus I love Freelee’s 100 squats a day (and the other people who started it).

So I’m combining these two minor things, and seeing what results come in a month!  I’M NOT AT THE POINT OF DOING ANYTHING REALLY STRENUOUS YET… I think a lot of people relate to that and where I’m at, YA?

So JOIN IN with me if you like!

Comment below if you are IN!  I’ll check in occasionally on a post and/or video, and definitely at the end of the 30 days (around Thanksgiving)!  LET’S DO THIS & LET’S SEE HOW WE DO!

LOVE & HUGS!!!
