In Which Your Humble Blogger Becomes A Humble Vlogger, Because 30-Day Plank Challenge

First, some ‘splaining.

As you may or may not know, there are basically two kinds of people on the Internet: those who love The Plus (that’s Google Plus) for its vibrant, intelligent, interactive community and those who get on the Plus without already knowing anyone else who’s active on The Plus and go, “Um, but guys … there’s nobody here!”

I am a member of the former category: an involved (except when I’m not), active (except when I’m not) member of an extensive network of crazy Plussers who do all kinds of interesting things that mostly revolve around riding bikes, other physical stuff, nerdery, writing, and obsessing over food.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, then, one of my Pleeps (as we half-mockingly call ourselves) whipped up a little Plus community called “Fitness Challenges” and invited me to join. I’m a sucker for a challenge, so of course I said, “Sign me up!”

Anyway, our first challenge is a 30-Day Plank Challenge. The goal is to plank a little longer each day, with the ultimate goal of planking it out for a full 5 minutes (or longer, if you’re crazy).

For some reason, I decided that this challenge required video.

And then I decided that the video needed, well, a song.

You’re welcome.

In other news, I’m planning (G-d help me) my first recipe for the “Cooking with ADHD” series. The idea is to start with a really simple dinner and work from there. More to come!

  1. 5 minutes?! Wow, keep us updated on how that goes. I feel like I should take on the challenge as well – planking does a body good!
    Adorable kitty, by the way.

    • I will definitely keep you posted! I tried this last year and never made it past 3 minutes, so I’m going the video blog will keep me honest 😀

      Also, Mr. Merkah says thanks!
