Three more things:

1.  You may be wondering what a dog leg is! Also known as the "peeing dog" exercise, it involves getting on your hands and knees and slowly swinging each leg out to the side (so that you look like a peeing dog-- it looks and sounds ridiculous but tones your tush and thighs like crazy!) 

2 .I'm planning to accompany this challenge with cardio like swimming, the elliptical machine, the "zombies run" app (depending on how well it works), and the Just Dance Wii games when I have free time. 

3. Don't forget it's okay to make little modifications-- you can break up the jumping jacks into little bursts of 25 or 50, do planks on your knees or using your elbows instead of your hands, do leg raises lying on your back, on your stomach Superman-style (or both, like I am!) or by doing wide-leg or tippy-toe squats. Whatever works best for you! 


Good luck and let me know how the plan goes for you by using the hashtag #FITWITHNISH!
