“Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else, but just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes.”

May 2013 Squat & Plank challenge!!
Feel free to print out and stick it anywhere for motivation! Don’t forget to drink plenty of water and eat clean and you should see awesome results by the end of the month. GOOD LUCK :)
If you complete this then this month you have:
- squatted 5,000 times!
- planked for over an hour! (64.30)
note 1: if you find the squats too difficult then try splitting them up into reps of about 50 at a time and spread them throughout your day.
note 2: please ensure you are squatting and planking correctly to avoid any injuries.
OH IT IS SO ON
You should have at least one rest day a week though. I’m going to do this and push everything forward so that my Sundays are rest days. It will mean I end this particular challenge a few days into June but it will also mean my muscles have the chance to rest and repair.
