November Challenge

I joined Christine's November challenge and started today. I love how these stretches target my abdominal and arm muscles as those are the ones I need the most work on. I have not done these stretches/exercises in years and I just finished all the sets. Wow, do I need improvement! So I'm glad for this challenge. Hopefully by the end of the month I'll be doing these with ease.

Here is what the challenge exercises are: (right from Christine's blog)

30 Crunches (or sit ups)

30 Push ups

Do this every day for the month of November.
Anyone want to join me?

Margene, I confess to being ignorant to most things associated with exercise. What, exactly, is a "reverse crunch"? A crunch is a sit-up of sorts, right?

I can't join you in this challenge (this time), because I have a tear in my left bicep, which means I need to pamper that arm until it is healed, but I'll cheer you on and maybe take up something similar next month (assuming the muscle has repaired itself by then).

Yeah you on day one!!!
I second that about hoping it gets easier!!
We can do this!!

Margene, I think I am going to try, but I don't know how well I will do. I will keep a log every day and work to get up to 30 each. I will start them as soon as I finish up this post. Thanks for the challenge and constant encouragement. :)

Good afternoon Margene. I'm a bit late but will unofficial work this challenge with you. I was looking for fish flopping exercises and this sound right up the alley I needed. Plus you know I love challenges.
Thanks for your kind words today. You always know what to say when I need it most.
I'm off to see what I can do for your challenge (well Christine's). Take care and God Bless!!

I'll try to join you in this challenge but I scan't even do ONE push up so it's going to be a long journey.

Btw, you have impeccable timing. I needed one more person to tag on a blogpost and you suddenly showed up. It's pure silliness, but if you have time come and see!

I so need to get in on this!! I need to mix up my exercise.
I just started my own challenge this month for the first time too, but it's more to lift our spirits than sagging under arms lol!!
Thank you for sharing!!
