I have missed a week or two of these challenges. Did you miss them? To remind us all: do the challenge of the day either for 10 minutes straight or -most of the time – for one minute at a time, ten times a day.
Monday: Counter push-offs. Stand about 2-3 feet away from the edge of a counter. Hands on the edge, drop down into the counter and push yourself back away. Yep, push-ups from the counter instead of the floor. Adjust your feet so you get a nice stretch along the back of the legs when you drop. Do for one minute.
Tuesday: Knee ups. Stand erect with butt slightly tucked under, if you need the support stand against a wall. Pull one knee up to your chest, using your hands to assist in completing the move. Alternate legs and do for one minute.
Wednesday: Leg Swings. Stand along side a chair or counter with your weight supported on the inside leg. Swing the outside out to the side and then in crossing over the body. Keep your back neutral -don’t let it arch. Do about 30 each leg.
Thursday: Skip. Ok, we might not want to be seen in public skipping around the neighborhood – though if you do, I completely applaud. But when you’re inside, decide that today you will skip around the house. Notice if you feel younger -or just start smiling when you do this.
Friday: Arm Circles. Stand with your arms out to the side. Make giant circles, then small circles. Circles all around for a minute.
