Days 29 & 30: Make it Count!

Screen Shot 2017-11-28 at 3.22.54 PM

Sometimes I wonder if the time goes by faster because I am writing posts with dates and I watch the days click by…I’m not sure if this is the case but it sure feels like it!

Oh well…we can’t stop time…but we can make it count!

We make it count by making time for ourselves, by striving for the goals we set for ourselves, by pushing past our excuses and getting it done even when we don’t want to!

Invest in yourself, use the time you set aside for yourself wisely and make it count! Two more days in Novembers…then we start December, which I promise is coming together as a simple and familiar routine that you can get done in 15 minute or less EVERY DAY!

Let’s do this Crew….MAKE IT COUNT!


Before we get to the nitty gritty…we have a winner for the Thanksgiving #Countdowntothefeast Sqoosh contest! I put the names of all each Core Crew member who completed the Thanksgiving workout and tagged their post into a random name generator and the winner is….(insert drum roll here)….

Day 29 “how to” videos:

Overhead Circles with Medicine Ball or Dumbbell: If you use a dumbbell for this exercise, please be careful and don’t hit yourself in the head! 🙂

Dumbbell Side Bend: This video says “for me” but come on…we know women can do this just as well or better! 😉 Hold that core tight to get the most out of this exercise!

Medicine Ball Reverse Lunge with Twist: This can also be done with a dumbbell or any kind of weight. Great way to add core strength with a leg workout.

Squat Curl & Press: This move has it all! Quads, glutes, core, arms! Watch the video to see how it’s done properly.

Bear Crawl Box: Another great compound move. This one will work our core (hold it tight!), legs, glutes and arms! One full box is one rep!

Squat Jumpback: Take it easy on the jump back then give it some power going forward!

Plank & Wall Sit: You know how to do these…add one :30 plank and one :30 wall sit at the end of each round!
