I've made it halfway through the #TMPlanks challenge and it is getting a lot harder. At this point I don't know if holding a 5 minute plank (at the end) will be possible. The 2.5 min one is challenging enough and my back still hasn't felt any better during the process. But I think my point of starting this challenge wasn't necessarily to get to 5 minutes but to motivate myself and others to try. They say aim for the moon and if you fail you will still land amongst the stars. That is how I feel about this challenge. Maybe I won't get to a 5 minute plank but I am already holding a plank longer than ever before. And along this journey I have been encouraged and inspired by a group of amazing ladies. All in all I'm thinking this thing is a win and it's not even over yet.
Speaking of health, Coke is trying to claim to be a “wellness” brand at BlogHer this year. Um seriously? I don't think so and neither does a lot of other bloggers. Leah, the awesome chick behind Mamavation, is putting together a Twitter party to blow the whistle on this craziness. Want to learn more?
Come join me at the #StepsToWellness Twitter Party where I will be one of the panelists supporting Leah as she brings awareness to this ridiculous campaign by Coke.
How are you fitness goals holding up during the summer?
2.5 minutes?! Wow, I’m impressed. Great job! 🙂
Love that you are sticking with the plank challenge. Even though you dont think you will hold a 5 minute plank you can. Our mind always quits before our minds. If you think you can, you can. Keep going strong!!
