I have been seeing this 30 day Squat Challenge floating around Facebook for a couple weeks, a decided to give it a whirl. I mean really, how hard could it be? Start at 50 at day 1, finish at 250 on day 30. OK, that last number was a little intimidating, but I saw that it was a slow progression. I printed up the paper and figured I could cross off each day as I went along. I also was talking about it with a friend, and roped her into doing this with me since she mentioned that she had started, then stopped when she was sick.  So now I have a workout buddy to harass me into doing this.

Day 19:  OK, back to doing my squats in the morning.  Unfortunately I have an slightly over achieving friend that I'm doing this with and my morning text from her was along the lines of, " 2 sets this morning, 100/60".  After dropping some loose change into the swear jar, and repeatedly texting her that I hated her (thankfully she knows I'm joking), I decided I could not be out done and got busy.  YES!  I managed to do just 2 sets! 100/60.  I'm not gonna lie, I was burning by 90, but I was not gonna be out done.  I completed my two sets, dropped more loose change into the swear jar, and shot off another string of messages about how much  hated her.  Not sure how much of it was joking at that point, but after the burn went away, no problems and no pain!
