plank challenge and weekly board

I found this 30 day plank challenge on Pinterest. I don’t know how far I will get but I’m going for it. My wrists (left one in particular – may have injured it) start hurting around the 1:30 min mark.  I started pushing away from the floor more and using my shoulders more.  That helps some.  I have also been elevating on the edge of the couch and taking extra days to complete the time. But, I’ve still been doing a plank every day no matter what.

Also, I’ve been keeping track of my workouts, the plank challenge, and a brief list of my food on my fridge. I found this dry erase board at Walmart.  My workouts stay pretty similar every week.  But I schedule everything so that I don’t even have to think about it…or debate it.  Usually if I get to the debate stage, I’m more likely to quit, choose something easier, or half-ass it.  My food is listed to the right – breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.  It’s very simple and there’s no calorie counts.  I just like to keep a list so I can reflect on how well I did for the day or week and what needs to be changed in the future.
