New Challenges + Bodyweight Workout

Hello friends! :)


We are coming down to the wire with the 25 days of workouts challenge! I will admit that during this busy week, I slacked a bit on my vegetable goal. I hope that some day I will truly enjoy veggies, but for now I must smash them all into a shake in order to get them in.


If any of you made a small change or set some goals, did you stick to them? I really encourage you to write down those goals! Make them real – whether they are about fitness, health, work, or life in general. Once you write down that goal, it holds you accountable – make the change, not an excuse!



With the new year coming, comes the new workout challenge! I’ve teamed up with the brilliant Estela from Weekly Bite to bring you added nutrition information, tips, and goals round the clock! Combined with the No More Resolutions workout challenge, you are sure to reach your goals and maintain them in 2010.


In the next 2 days, I’ll be posting the first round of workouts for No More Resolutions.


You will find:


Workouts for beginners, intermediate, and advanced exercisers

Options for full body workouts, or upper/lower split workouts

Programs for working out 3, 4, or 5 days a week

Once a week plyometric goals

Goal setting


I am so excited to share this program with you! In the meantime, check out Estela’s post on NO DIET’S IN THE NEW YEAR!



Before we run full speed ahead into 2010, let’s end 2009 with some kickin’ workouts. :)


25 Days of Workouts

WORKOUT #23 – BODYWEIGHT BLAST


The gym may not be crowded yet, but just wait until next week – all equipment will be in full demand. If you want to skip the New Year’s rush and do some workouts at home, or if you can’t make it to the gym on New Year’s Day – kick that booty with this equipment-free workout!

Remember – you can always add weight (i.e dumbbells) as needed.


20 step ups – each leg

25 pushups

30 seconds mountain climbers

60 second plank hold

50 alternating lunges (25 each leg)

10 staggered pushups (each side)

60 second bicycle crunches

25 squats

90 second wall sit

20 triceps dips

REPEAT.


What are your non-fitness related goals for the New Year? Mine is to try and keep this darn house cleaner! :)
