Only three more weeks left in the Do or Do Not Challenge! Can you believe it? If you’ve made it this far, I’d love it if you’d share the changes you’ve seen in your health and fitness levels. Are you ready for this week’s challenges?
1. This week try one or two fruits or veggies that you’ve never had before. The variety of fresh fruit and veggie selections should be improving by now at your local grocery or farmer’s market, so this is the perfect time to find some new favorites.
We had a blast in the produce section of our grocery store this week! It’s so exciting to me to see my kids (and me!) get excited about fruit. I am loving the whole seasonal fruit and veggies thing. About the time you start getting tired of one season’s produce, it’s time for a whole new seasons of delicious fruits at great prices.
This week we loaded up on fresh pineapple (I don’t like canned pineapple, but I love fresh), strawberries and grapes at fantastic prices. I love when my kids ask for a snack and walk out of the kitchen with a bowl of fruit.
2. Do 100 sit-ups at least 4 days this week. Yep, that’s right: one-hundred. You can do it! Mix it up and make sure you’re working both upper and lower abs, as well as your obliques. Don’t skimp on this one — swim suit season is right around the corner. (Okay, okay, even with swim suit season, no one will actually be seeing my abs, but they’ll still be able to see the pudge if I don’t work on flattening it.)
There you go, you’re Week 14 challenges. Remember: Do or do not; there is no try!
