I Did It!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Keep clapping!

I actually finished the squat challenge today.  My ass is on fire, my legs throb, butI did the whole
 damn thing.  Sergeant Emily was beside me every day.  Now I must confess my form may not have been the best, but my knees were at least bending every time.

This is what my butt looked like before:






And this is the challenge with a picture of my ass now:





Amazing, right?!  Doesn't my ass look awesome?   Not actually my ass, but almost as perky.  Seriously, my butt is tighter, along with my legs (of course they are all seized up), and it is actually higher.  

So what now you ask.  Emily can not leave soon enough because we are now doing this...

Push up challenge @Megan Ward Ward Ward McNally



I am on Day 7.  Let me tell ya, Day 6 sucked!

  3. OH MY GOD! I don't think I could do either challenge!!! Holy Toledo - you are my hero! Tell Emily it is time to go to school and that she should never visit me. Good lord! And I was feeling virtuous as I just walked 6.5Km!

  4. OMG. I feel your pain, sort of. I did this kind of thing once and couldn't sit on the toilet for a week. Hope this doesn't happen to you.
    I did a lazy yoga class with a bunch of gals in their 80's this summer, and couldn't believe the screaming pain my arms were in for days following.
    I really must get in better shape. Your are my hero.

    1. Oh me too! It was hilarious, I could only manage a half crouch.

    2. I remember doing an aerobics class in college. The teacher was a plump woman and just about killed me every time. I can fall back on the toilet, it's getting up.

  5. You always make me laugh. If we lived next door, we'd be besties, I tell you! I loved these kinds of challenges in my 20s, but noe in my early 30s the only challenge that sounds interesting is whether I can singlehandedly tackle that pint of Ben and Jerry's.
    I hope you're doing well, since I seem to remember from comments that one of the kidlets is flying the coop this weekend.

    1. Tyler left last Sunday and we are headed with Em this Thursday. Sigh. Excited and a bit sad but stressed more than anything right now. Love ya baby.

  6. Phew you are on the ball, I hate squats so much but have spent the last 8 months working my tush and have gained an inch - hurrah! I was shaped like the Tasmanian devil before but I'm now almost an hourglass - if you screw up up your eyes after sticking pins in them and chopping an onion.

    1. I was hoping to serve drinks off my butt however I will settle for a lot less jiggle when I wiggle.

  7. BB, you rock, girl, and may I say that your today-butt (and I totally know that that IS your butt) looks amazing? Can I ask (because I'm inspired to try this squat challenge right "behind" you (couldn't resist that, sorry), did you do these with dumbbells, barbell, no weights or what?

    Pushups challenge on the other hand -- not likely to follow you. I did a 100-pushup challenge a couple of years ago and still remember how much I hated it. :-)

    1. No weights...just my fat ass and gravity is all I needed. Truthfully, I only had two days where I had to stop in the middle and then pick up a few minutes later. The key now is to do 50 squats three times a week to keep this beautiful butt.

  8. Wow! well done you!!
    I hate squats too, and can't imagine doing that many in one go!

    I've spent a fair part of my adult life trying to get a bum. There was some growth in muscle and shape last year, but 2 months of crutches post-surgery this year made my derriere atrohpy back to its usual flat self :-(

    I can do heaps of push-ups, though!! (years of yoga!)

    1. I have baby arms and the push ups are tough especially since I am not allowed to do girlie ones.
