Monday Motivation: Legs Love Lunges Challenge


Amanda at 5 Miles to Empty has a great challenge going from August 10-Sept 10 challenging folks to do lunges 3x per week. Oh, wait and eck, she wants us to post pictures too! So here are my legs pre-lunge challenge. To make the picture even more attractive I happen to be wearing oversized, baggy/scrunchy shorts. I know, pretty HOT huh! Well, besides the need for photo's, I love challenges and in addition to the lunges, I am doing SOWL and Hard Core challenges, just click the buttons on the right hand side of my page to find out more about those.

If getting my tush, ahem, legs in shape via lunges is not motivating I don't know what is. I have commented alot about my weight loss, but now it is time to focus on toning up my body. The Hard Core, the SOWL and now this Lunge challenge are all great ways to keep my distracted self focused on success and that ladies and gentleman is motivating.

Thankful Three
  1. My hiking weekend with the hubby where he told me, "Honey, Deet is the sexiest perfume you've ever worn"
  2. That we made it home in time to put the kids to bed ourselves last night, I really missed my little ones this weekend
  3. For being invited to play co-ed softball tonight, yes I know what you are thinking and yes I needed one more activity to fill up my free time ;p

I agree with Amanda - you're starting with some awesome looking legs, I can't imagine how much better they'll look in a month!
