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.
