September 30 Day Challenge

I heard once that it takes about 10,000 repetitions to make an action second nature and about 21 consecutive days to make something a habit. With this in mind I have decided to start taking on more 30 day (or 29 or 31) challenges each month. It gives me enough time to really try something out and build a habit if I like it. On the flip side, if I don't like the end results I won't feel as though I have wasted a lot of time.

I have decided to tackle the 30 day squat and abs challenge that has been posted all over Pinterest lately for the month of September. I will be taking before and after photos and revealing them at the end of the month to see if there has been any noticeable progress. Feel free to join me on this challenge and if you do I'd love to hear from you about it! Use the comments section below, make your own blog post or even email me!

Good luck :)

Edit: tempo is everything so for the exercises I will be using a 4-1-2-0 tempo.


  1. What's a 4-1-2-0 tempo? I tried the squat challenge and found it pretty easy to stick with but then life got in the way and I was part of a facebook group and got discouraged when no one helped cheer me on. It was a big thing for me to share my bum via le interwebs and I felt like everyone else got feedback but me. Haha but. Motivation is my biggest problem. Maybe I'll join you in October!

  2. Yo Christine!
    I have nominated you for the Shine On Blogger award, because I think your blog is just plain groovy. As per the instructions given to me, you now need to tell us seven things about your lovely self, and then nominate seven other bloggers that you think take the cake! If you want to see how I did it, the link to my post is here:

    Thanks for sharing your vision with the world!

  3. I'm a little late for the month of Sept, but I'm going to start both these challenges today. Thanks for the info!
