This is called the spirited toddler flow. It is a 90 second class & not for the faint of heart.

Plie Squat with Lateral Arm Raise

This multitasking move will target your thighs and biceps at the same time.

Stand with legs wide and toes pointed outward slightly. Hold a pair of dumbbells in your hands with your arms straight and your palms facing down.
Bend your knees until they are over your ankles while raising arms to just below shoulder height. Arms should be in line with your legs — you should see the weights in your peripheral vision.
Straighten your legs, and lower your arms simultaneously.
Complete three sets of 12 to 15 reps.

I am happier now allowing myself to have “junk food” free of guilt than I ever was forcing lettuce down my throat and struggling to eat under 1,200 calories a day while exhausting myself over exercising.

This is recovery.

“About the 3 30 day challenges you just reblogged: could you do them all at once or would that be too much?”
-Anonymous

It wouldn’t kill you to do all three of them. Just make sure, as you go, that you’re not over-exerting yourself. But since the rest days match up and they all increase at a reasonable pace, you should be able to use the three challenges together for your workout.
