Parent Perfect Body Blasting 30-Day Challenges (DO THIS!)

Ok. It's the new year. Time to put the holiday madness behind us, get our life and the routine back on track, and, somehow, shed those extra holiday pounds.  If only, there were enough time in the day, right? Well, if you have a few seconds I think I have a solution!  Below are a few of my favorite 30-day challenges to get you moving and toned in a few seconds a day.


1. Tell yourself to do just one day. RIGHT NOW!  Chances are, you will do tomorrow's reps too...
2. Pin or print your favorite plan, put it on the refrigerator/wall and check off each day.
3. You will actually see results, but it wouldn't hurt to keep going after your reps. Walk in place for five minutes, or climb the stairs a few times. Maybe add a few lunges or sit-ups. You'll be amazed how when you start... you can't stop!
4. Recruit a friend, then make a pact to celebrate in a fun way if you BOTH complete the challenge.

Without further ado... Parent Perfect Body Blasting 30-Day Challenges:
