The two areas of my body that I'm really self conscious about, especially when faced with wearing a bikini, are my thighs and my stomach so I chose to do the Squat Challenge & the Crunch Challenge. Due to my lack of frequent exercising, I found the challenges difficult (but not impossible) when I started them, it got to the point where I would actually just give up for a couple of weeks and then start again from scratch, which was a shame because I had started to enjoy doing them, especially since seeing some results - and I never ever thought I'd be ever saying that!
So the way I've been dealing with the challenges is putting no pressure on myself to complete them in the 30 days. Exercise is a good thing in moderation and sometimes I think you can push yourself too much & it can cause more damage than good. I've been using the challenges as a sort of guide - for example I'm at 100 squats right now which I find a bit of a push so I'll do 100 each day until they become easier and then move up to the next number. It obviously means that it isn't exactly a '30 Day Challenge' but in time I'm hoping that both the squats and crunches can become a bit of a daily exercise routine for myself over time rather than something I do for a month straight here and there.
I'd love to find some more quick and effective daily exercises or find out if anyone else has had any good results from these challenges too!
