Countdown to Christmas Workout

You guess it, another month … another challenge to share. I’m not great with challenges. I start out with good intentions and then somehow get lost, then stop it all together. The last 30 day challenge I did was the Thigh Challenge and had to stop around Day 14 due to an injury.

The Fall into Fitness 30 Day Challenge is coming to an end next week…crazy, eh! It’s been 30 days of blogging about my workouts, my meal planning (since that was a goal of mine) and I might be sad to see it end. I’ve met some great bloggers which I’ll continue to follow, so that’s a bonus.

I did sign up for the #HollyJollyFitness Challenge for the month of December. The Challenge is: to work out 4 days a week and post on the page about it. Which brings me to the “Countdown to Christmas” workout by Jodi Higgs.

Countdown to Christmas by Jodi Higgs


Days 1, 7, 13 and 19 are Ab Days, with a cardio element thrown in between each exercise.

Days 2, 8, 14 and 20 are Arm Days, with some jumprope added in between.

Days 3, 9, 15 and 21 are Back Days, again adding some cardio between each set.

Days 4, 10, 16 and 22 are Thigh Days, with the skaters cardio exercise in between.

Days 5, 11, 17 and 23 involve simple squats, crunches and bicep curls, while

Days 6, 12, 18 and 24 promote some of the principles of the Eat Clean Challenge with a rest from the physical workout.

Again, I did not create this workout…just sharing and *trying* to challenge myself this December!

Do you like 30 Day Challenges?

Do you stick with the challenge or give up?

Anyone doing a challenge this month? Do share…. 🙂

  1. Hmm that looks like a pretty good challenge with a decent mix of exercises. I have done the squat challenge and I completed that one. I loved it I could definitely tell a difference by the end. You start off doing 50 squats and by the end you do 250.
    I have attempted to do other of these challenges but never managed to stick to it.

    • You’re hard core! That’s a lot of squats.

      I like that this one has a variety of exercises and is more of a whole body approach. I’d like to try another one in the winter but not sure which one yet.

      • Yea I like the whole body approach as well. Most of the 30 day exercise challenges are usually just exercises targeting one area.
        The good thing about the squat challenge was I didn’t need anything to do it. I didn’t even need to change into workout clothes so it was easy for me to stick to. Also I was doing it along with 2 friends so we would text each other to make sure we did out squats haha
