FitSugar Squat Challenge

Hey stranger!

Hope the holidays haven’t driven you away from fitness like they have for me. Every year I swear I’ll stick to my workout routine and every year, I don’t. At. All. I know I should let certain things slide around the holiday season and chalk it up to a Cat Hair Coffee moment, but this season I’ve noticed a major side effect: SAD. OK, so maybe not to the extreme that some people are effected, but I definitely have found myself lacking in the energy department. Enter: The 30-Day Squat Challenge by PopSugar Fitness.

I found this challenge on PopSugar’s Facebook page and thought it seemed really reasonable. The whole “Squat Circuit Challenge: 4 Weeks to 200 Squats” sounded so cool to me! Well, maybe “cool” is the wrong word, but it definitely seemed like an attainable goal. Anyway, if you would like to join me, tweet about your experience by mentioning me @baileemorris OR @cathaircoffee and @POPSUGARFitness with the hashtag #200squatchallenge. Here’s the routine:
