Finish February Fit Challenge – 4th & Final Week

Hey, it’s Saturday and I am writing this weekend post from Albuquerque, NM where Pete and I are spending a few days as a late anniversary trip.image

I’ve been hittin up all my favorite places, which is super fun when you are buying groceries for the next 6 months. It’s easier to justify buying one of everything…well, maybe not, exactly, but I’m doing a shout out for Trader Joes, and Sprouts Market. Supplying my pantry one 5 mile long receipt at a time. 🙂 Funny…but true.

Also I’ve been eating my bodyweight in hummus and berries, drinking lots of yummy coffee, working out at a new gym (woot for guest passes) and enjoying some together time with the hubby, which is always awesome.image

And freezing my bootay off! Who knew Albuquerque was cold! This WI girl has truly turned beach babe forever.

Oh…and firsts:
I could have won a pair of free jeans at AE just for trying them on…but alas, we are like the only people in this country without a smart phone, so I couldn’t text the coupon code to the # to see if I won. Fail.

I drank kombucha with chia seeds in it…holy yum. I’m definitely doing that at home.

Had our order taken at a restaurant on a tablet…I know, welcome to the first century Liesl.

And we ate lunch everyday in our truck. Cheese, crackers, hummus and veg! Yep…we are classy like that.image

Anyways, it’s been a fun time, and I hope you’ve had a great week too.

How did your workouts go? Bodyweight…what did you think? Did you try my Burn IT workout? Feedback?

Well, it’s week 4, hard to believe that February is almost over. I’ll be traveling more this week, and working on paperwork, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to Finish February Fit!

This week is all about staying consistent with your workouts, plus adding a bonus strength sesh to each day to really get you feeling your very best as you move into spring. So…ready to hit this last week hard with me?!

Week 4’s Challenge – 100s! image

This week’s challenge is simple:
Do – 100 squats
100 pushups
100 situps or v-ups
100 count plank hold
Every single day, in addition to your normal workout routine.

Some things to remember:
* You do not have to do all 100 reps at once, consecutively. You can break them up however you like, and do them throughout your day. I like 4 sets of 25.
* Make sure you are using proper form as you do each exercise, they are not meant to be done quickly.
* If you get sick of regular pushups or squats, mix it up! Try plie squats, or some wall squats, or one of these pushup variations.
* Have fun with it!!

You’ve done an amazing job this month and you should be really proud of yourself. This week I’d love to hear what you’ve learned about your fitness potential, and about yourself in general. I’d love to hear about gains you’ve made, or set backs you’ve had. And what you’ve liked or disliked about the challenges.

This blog, Fitness in the Kitchen, is for you guys. Free tips, exercise routines, and healthy recipes that encourage me to be creative and to keep things fresh, however, it is my hope that they also encourage you to live a healthier lifestyle. 🙂 So…let me know what’d you’d like to see more of in the future. I love your feedback.

Thanks for reading, and stay strong this week, I’ll be pounding out those 100s with you!
