Here on our little hillside, in WV, we try to live a simple life. One where we can try to make the best decisions in regards to what we feed our family, and where we source our foods. We try to make green decision that are not only good for our family but for our community and planet as well. There is no place I would rather raise a family, than these WV hills! So I guess it is our responsibility to preserve them, and our heritage.

30 Day Fitness Challenge

After the birth of my daughter, I started to get a little more serious about my health.  I have always ate well, but we started eating better, for her.  I also knew that to keep up with this little one, I needed to be in better shape.  If I want to do and experience all the natural wonders around us, I need to be fit enough to reach our destinations, packing a child and all our gear.  I seemed to do a great job, dropped all my baby weight, and another 30 lbs.  Woot woot!!

Then along came Thanksgiving, Christmas cookies, and a very long winter.  Needless to say I gained a few of those pounds back.  I do not like the way I feel.  When I exercise daily, I feel better.  I move better.  I am in a better mood.  I noticed that when I participate in the 30 day challenges, I seem to do better.  I have a schedule.  A challenge to meet.  A goal to complete..... ALL 30 days......It keeps me motivated.

I have done the 30 day ab challenge, as well as the 30 day squat challenge.  I have even done them at the same time.  I like the challenge, but wanted to add to it.  I wanted to ad some cardio and arms and try for a more total body workout.  I saw a 30 day yoga challenge and LOVED it, so I incorporated this idea in as well.  I personally hope to do more than 30 sec per pose a day.  I guess you could always double the count if it seems too simple.

 I want something that I can do at home with no equipment.  If you wanted to add a cross fit aspect, you could give yourself a 30 sec rest between each set.  I wasn't sure what to add.  I am not a fitness expert, just a girl trying to stay in shape.  This is what I decided on.  What do you think?  Are you up for this 30 day challenge?  I know we can do it!!   Do you have any other suggestions of what to add?  Please feel free to share, and to share your results as well.
