I know what you’re thinking, “Another challenge in the blog world? Really?!”
Before we get to the 100’s challenge, I wanted to share my new favorite dairy-free smoothie.
I have been missing my yogurt!
Unfortunately, I wasn’t a big fan of the texture. It was a bit grainy and not as thick as I like. So, I opted to use it in my smoothies instead of whey protein powder.
I threw in 1 frozen banana, a cup of strawberries, a handful of ice, one container of soy yogurt, and enough almond milk to blend.
The vitamix rocks! I absolutely love the consistency.
Delicious! So, for those of you looking for a dairy-free smoothie option without sacrificing a creamy texture, this is a winner!
The 100’s Challenge
Like I said, I’m not a huge fan of challenges. I feel like they can be a bit overdone. However, I DO like the camaraderie and accountability behind them.
So, you’ll have to give me a pass on this one.
I need some accountability on my end as I return to my pre-pregnancy fitness.
Because it takes 21 days to break a habit or implement a good one, I selected that time frame for this challenge. Start whenever you like, but commit to 21 days straight.
I selected 3 fundamental moves that can be done anywhere. The idea is at some point during your day, you complete 100 squats, 100 push-ups, and 100 sit-ups. They do not need to be consecutive. Sneak a few rounds in during a commercial or before a meal–really whenever you can.
How to Do a Squat Properly
Quality counts, so be sure to review how to do a squat and watch for common mistakes.
How to do a Push-up Correctly
I will be starting with modified push-ups until I build back my core and upper strength. I don’t want to sacrifice range of motion and proper mechanics.
Sound good? If you do decide to participate, be sure to let me know by tweeting @blondeponytail or on instagram at blondeponytail using the hashtag #100challenge. I’d love some partners in crime for this!
