Crunch the numbers and live a little lighter

I’m so happy to see so many people getting off their duff and incorporating fitness into their lives from purchasing standing desks, to wearing FitBits during their lunch hours. It feels so good to live life a little lighter!

Since Chobani is encouraging us all to “crunch the numbers” in honor of the launch of their Simply 100 Crunch Greek yogurt, I thought it would be a great opportunity to start a “crunch the numbers” challenge with my friends.

100 stairs

I walk a lot already, so I thought adding stair stepping would challenge me more. So, I’m going to climb at least 100 stairs per day. I plan on putting my office downstairs in our house so I will be motivated to run up and down the stairs all day. Try taking the stairs at your work instead of the elevator, or if you have a two floor mall, walk the mall and use the stairs.

100 standing abs

I’m working on trying to get that “six pack” before our yearly Florida trip, so I’ve been doing standing abs workouts lately. Yes, I stand to work them abs (I HATE sit ups!). I’ll be doing 100 standing abs a day. The cool thing is you can do this anywhere! Check out standing ab workouts on Youtube.



Eat 100 less

I’m big on eating as minimally processed as possible, but when I’m on the go pre-packaged snacks are a time saver, but I’m super picky about what I choose.

 I’m obsessed with the greek yogurts and I love Chobani! Right now, they even have a new Simply 100 yogurt that doesn’t contain any synthetic sweeteners (they use stevia), and they don’t use unnecessary additives. That makes it guilt-free for those who count their calories.

 Workout for 100 

Here’s a big challenge: workout for a 100 days in a row! I tend to workout in some form everyday as it is, but I know there have been days I’ve skipped here and there. I count walking as a workout, so even if you make that your workout, get out there and just do it!
