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 2:  I'll admit legs were STIFF this morning, and the thought of doing squats was so not appeling.  I sucked it up and streateched for a minute, then started up today's challenge of 55.  Just one squat into this I was reacing for the back of the chair for support.  I managed to knock out todays challenge pretty quick, but I am feeling it in my legs.  My legs were pretty stiff the first 10 or so, but after that It was much easier.  My legs do not have the rubbery jello feel, but I am feeling the burn.  And unexpected bonus....My arms.  I do my squats with my arms straight out, so my arms are getting a work out too!
