Summer is coming and its that last minute bikini body panic rush to hit the gym and tighten that tummy ready for the beach!
But if you don’t have a fancy, or not so fancy, gym membership, there are loads of ways to get your exercise fix at home without the need for special equipment or a personal trainer, and one way you can do this, and do your bit for a fantastic charity is by taking part in the ToughNBuff Challenge, hosted by The Children’s Society
Firstly, who is The Children’s Society?
The Children’s Society are working for the futures of children in the UK; children on the streets, children who are suffering abuse, refugee children, the list goes on..
For some of these children, happy endings only seem to exist in fairytales. They have seen things that no child should ever have to see, and done things no child should ever have to do, and even when its all over for them, they live with the memories that can haunt them forever.
The Children’s Society does believe in happy endings. They believe in fighting child poverty, nurturing and supporting destitute families, and tackling neglect by providing counselling and support to the victims of abuse.
They are changing the lives of these children, and they need help to do it.
I will be taking part in the 30 day ToughNBuff Challenge throughout June, and you can too! Its super easy:
1. Sign up at toughnbuff.com – they do all the hard work, setting you up a Just Giving page and everything!
2. Pick your challenge – you can choose between burpees, press-ups, squats and plank challenges!
3. Get exercising, and get fundraising – complete your daily challenge, and nag everyone you know to donate, its a great cause!
So I chose 30 days of planking. I start today with 20 seconds, and by the end of the month I’ll (with any luck!) be holding a 5 minute plank! You can keep up with my daily progress on my Instagram and Twitter accounts, and I’ll be posting updates here every 5-7 days. If you’re feeling generous, pop across to my Just Giving page to donate, and on top of that warm, fuzzy feeling, I’ll love you forever!
Let’s do this!
