Week 3 #CarlsCrew Challeng

We are already into week 3 of the #CarlsCrew Challenge. The weather is getting a bit nicer and we had the chance to finally walk outside. It feels so nice to smell the fresh air.




This week the challenge is to do squats. They burn a lot of calories and work big muscle groups. If you can't do squats because of knee problems you could always do planks this week.

Try to start slow and do 10 squats in the morning and 10 in the evening. What you could do is to increase your squat count by 10 every day. Don't forget to take couple rest days also.

Hopefully you will continue to drink your water and eat your fruits/veggies. I do and I feel so good. I have been adding 2 cups of kale every day to my daily smoothie.

GIVEAWAY:  To add to this fun challenge I am offering one $25 Subway Gift Card to one lucky reader. Please fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter. Good luck!
