Six week Shake it up and some


Well here we are again another week gone. I am suggesting that we keep this up. I for one would like to hit six weeks of doing something and I feel I haven’t yet. So we are going to make this a rolling challenge for a while.

That means (for me). I haven’t failed I just haven’t achieved it YET. I am determined to complete my challenge and I hope those of you that have done well can stay around and support those of us that haven’t.

Maybe share some tips and tricks to how you motivate yourself. Also if you have completed your challenge why not think of what else you would like to add in.










If you are new here this s what we are doing, please join in,

The 6 weeks shake it up challenge

The challenge is whatever you want it to be.

Add in something extra.

Keep up your new addition for 6 weeks.

Mine is I am learning to hoop, so for the next six weeks I will be doing at least three session a week. Also I want to build to assisted push ups. Three sessions a week. So I am doing a twofold challenge.

The list of ideas is unlimited but here a few suggestions


Pull ups

Push ups

Downward dog

Glute stretches




Sit ups


Etc. Etc. Etc.

Pick something you have always wanted to do and challenge yourself to try it for 6 weeks

Stay safe, don’t pick something too difficult, do your research make sure you know what you are doing and how to perform all moves safely

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone want to do.

The weekend was a wash out. I was in bed on Saturday with a sinus problem that made me want to throw up eveytime I stood up. Luckily it has subsided now but I will take an the extra day off today to make sure it is all gone.

Well I am starting the six week challenge again as I do not feel I have done well at all and want to draw a line under it and restart. So I am learning to hoop and wall push ups for my challenge.

Week one here I come. 💪💪💪.

Mummycav please join in too, if you want.

Oh no, I hope you’re feeling much much better RFC? Planned my week and incorporating some swimming & yogalates so that should be interesting

I’d like to join this challenge please RFC, I feel like I ought to do more swimming as it’s a really enjoyable way of building strength

Sounds like a plan to me. I’m trying to make sure I still go to the pool. When I started this challenge I went every week then I added something new in and the pool session dropped off😂, let’s try and do a swim each this week. icklegui is swimming as well.

Good luck.

I am still swimming, hurrah! Once a week last two weeks but better than nothing!

29 press-ups... 30 is just a mental block I’m sure! Happy to call it week one... can I go back to 10? 😂😂

Well done, you are doing so well, I’m sure 30 is just round the corner. Hehe, No you can’t go back to 10, we need to look up to you 😀.

I’m on the floor, you’ll have to look down on me 😂

I am happy to continue with the challenge - I will continue to practice the plank, see if I can get less wobbly! :)

RealfoodieclubGoal1 in reply to sunny369

Great news. Wobbly is good, it means you are really getting into to activating those muscles. It is the challenge that makes them work harder as you begin. I’m still at wobbly stage too. 😀

I like that positive way of looking at it. Maybe we will be a bit less wobbly in another 6 weeks :)
