Gearing up for an October Fitness Challenge! Are you in???

I really love challenges! Especially when I can get others involved!!!! October is quickly creeping up on us and I have been mulling over what we can do for an October fitness challenge.

I decided on Renegade Rows, or push-ups with a dumbbell row. ūüôā I will be 34 on October 10th, so I thought it fitting to do Four sets of 30 Renegade Rows with a 30 second rest in between each set.

They work quite a bit of your body, so we should all see some great ¬†results!!!! I don’t know about you, but I am excited about the October Challenge!!! #OctoberRenegades

Zoe and I did our run this morning. (Just under 2 miles) I felt great on my run. Still having some issues with my shins though, but the compression socks help, especially after my run! Zoe has really been getting into running too! I have been letting her out of the stroller on the last stretch and she just takes off and has a really great pace. I am super proud of her!!! Keeping your kiddos active is important!
I love our bonding time when working out!!! It truly is the best part of my day!!! ūüôā
Once we got home we had a post run smoothie. I had some Pumpkin left over from the muffins, so we had a Pumpkin, oat, banana, and spinach smoothie. Before you say eww gross lol, you can not taste the spinach. ūüėČ
Even Zoe loved it!!!
And it is super easy to make!
