This week for Amy’s 2nd Weekly Challenge, she challenged us to get outside to a park to do a workout. Well, there are no parks anywhere near where I live. I live in the boonies, this is the view I have right now….lots of corn around the house, a dirt road, and only 3 houses on the entire 2 mile long road.


I had to get creative. I pulled our picnic table out into the yard and did some push-ups (the camera ate my pic!)

some reverse crunches, regular crunches, and bicycle crunches ( I think the dogs thought I was a little crazy for laying on top of the picnic table!)


some step-ups


some tricep dips (again, the camera ate this picture!)

 and some squats (didn’t get a pic of these!). Then I did some sprints across the yard


 and did some swinging on the swingset just for fun!

I really don’t know a lot of different excercises to do, but it was fun to get outside in the sunshine to do a little workout! I will definately be trying to get outside more! Thanks, Amy!

    Great job using what you do have! I also live in the boonies so you’re quite inspiring. No excuses!

I'm Becci, a twenty something from a small farming community in Michigan. I grew up on a farm and still live on one...I can't imagine it any other way! Although, I do love to travel and see the amazing places the world has to offer! I have always struggled with my weight and living a healthy lifestyle, but that's about to change! This is my journey to eating healthy, traveling, and hopefully accomplishing my goal of running a marathon all while enjoying the country life!
