Sweat Pink No Excuses Polished Lifting

This year it's all about #NoExcuses. This could mean that some days are longer than others in order to meet or exceed goals. As a Sweat Pink ambassador I challenge you to join me! 

Each day has a fitness related prompt to follow that just about everyone can do. Today's prompt (Monday 1/12) is to do 30 sec planks in any variation. Post a photo of you doing your planks to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and/or your blog. Use #NoExcuses and if you want to make sure I see it, #PolishedLifting. Let's see those planks!

In addition to the daily challenge, I filled out a Mad Lib style goal sheet made by the lovely ladies of Sweat Pink. Copy it from below and let me know how you plan to dominate 2015. 

  • Hey 2015, it’s me Breedlovehoops aka Courtney(nickname, spirit animal, real name, blog name)
  • This year I would like to deadlift 250lbs, benchpress 150lbs, and squat 200lbs.
  • It would also be super duper awesome if I also hiked more this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because I want to enjoy it!
  • The thing I am looking forward to most this year is spending more time with my fiance as we reach our fitness goals.
  • I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is coffee to help me get up, get moving(verb) and get after my #NoExcuses 2015.
  • Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is "I'm exhausted" and I have used it to get out of doing yardwork and cardio on more than 10 (number) occasions.
  • I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to drink more coffee.
  • Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the dog in the middle of the night, I'll still roll my lazy butt out of bed.
  • I will stop blaming the pet rock [ex: kids, dog, husband] for eating the rest of the cookies when everyone knows it was really me.
  • My fiance [job, hair, car, husband, kids] is not the reason I make excuses. I will show my fiance [same as before] who's boss this year and get my weightlifting [type of sweaty activity] on.
  • I know that weightlifting [type of workout] is better than cardio [noun]
  • I will reward myself by getting a new succulent or air plant when I reach a goal.
  • No Excuses 2015 has just begun and already I am imagining myself a winner. I can’t wait to rock a Zeal hoodie (article of clothing) from Augusta Active. I can’t wait till my sweaty friends are jealous of how fresh, clean and refreshed (adj) I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking a deadlift[yoga pose / workout move] in Tie One On Leggings [article of clothing from Actio926] from Actio926 and looking fit and fly while doing it. And of course, I’ll be taking my workouts to the next level and improving my core [noun] with my new ActivMotion Bar to help me train for my first 5k [distance] race with Sasquatch Racing.
  • Oh, and let’s not forget how amazing my hoodie & leggings [article of clothing] will smell in my / during leg day [favorite type of workout] after washing with some WIN Detergent. And lastly, I’ll keep rocking my 2015 with clean eats and nutrition from Beaming with Health!
  • Tag, Tweet, shout-out, call, text, fax or email 3 friends to take this survey and share how they will have a #NoExcuses 2015. Remind your friends to simply fill in the underlined parts!
  • Use the #NoExcuses hashtag and post to win prizes from Augusta Active, ShowerPill, ActivMotion Bar, WIN Detergent, Actio926, Beaming with Health, and Sasquatch Racing.

The second to last bullet point said that I should call out a few people. I would love to see Kendahl (Firecracker Lacquer), Mary A. (Polish Gauntlet), Rachel K. (Polish Gauntlet), and my dear mom kill it this year!

I look forward to meeting my goals and helping you do the same. Let's kick ass this year, and make 2015 rock!
