So the results of my squat challenge in short…I bulked up!! Which is awesome because that was the goal! It definitely helped that I’ve been intentionally eating much more than normal; usually I eat until I’m comfortable, lately I’ve been eating until I’m full.
But now for an honesty hour, shall we?
I failed at the 30 day squat challenge…
I came up one day short. Not that I’m using this as an excuse, but I got sick on day 29 and come day 30, I was knocked out for the count. I even attempted to do the last 250 squats; successfully did 20 of them and then proceeded to fall asleep on the floor.
Shame, shame, shame.
And if I can be completely honest…I also switched a rest day with a squat day at one point. That’s right, I was simply too stressed and tired to work out; I immediately came home form work and went to bed.
I say all this to say…I’m going to try again! But this time, I’m going to split squats and crunches to get closer to a full body workout. That means on day 1, rather than doing 50 squats, I’m going to do 25 squats (with a heavier weight) and 25 crunches.
I guess you could call it a semi-squat challenge. But it will be another 30 day challenge. I like the idea of forming short term steps to reach an ultimate goal; it makes the process seem easier and less daunting.
For now, check out my before and after picturess below to see the change made after my
30 29 day squat challenge!
