Squats have always been my nemesis! I had knee surgery in 1987 (WOW! I'm OLD!) to have a benign tumor removed from my knee cap. After the surgery, the physical therapist gave me some exercises to do and said, "Keep doing these for a while." Well, to a 14 year old girl, a while is 2 weeks. Until about 5 years ago, I did not have the strength in my quads to do squats. I have now just started week 4 of this challenge and I am amazed at what I can do! Now, the first week was holy hell, but since then, I am just getting stronger.
Sit-ups are Satan's way of sprinkling evil on our core. Okay, maybe that goes a little far, but I don't like 'em. I am starting this challenge today. I started it last week, but since I broke my arm on Tuesday, I decided to wait another week on this one. So I will be doing this in a few before the kiddos get home.
