Jump for Joy in February!



February is just around the corner! Usually we think of candy hearts and homemade love notes.. But this month I am participating in my own Jumping Jack challenge! I would love to have you join me!

Why jumping jacks?

"Jumping jacks are an effective aerobic and strength-building exercise and their simplicity makes them versatile." (Thompson. LiveStrong)


Below you will find the challenge I have created for the month.  Every fifth day is a rest day.  As the number of jacks increase, you may choose to split them up over the course of the day.  For instance, on the 100 jacks day, do 50 in the morning and 50 in the evening.  It's up to you! 
Let me hear from you if you are joining me for this challenge! Post a comment here, and/or share your #jumpforjoy pics on the Simply Sole Searching facebook page!
Here is the challenge: (please note that I recommend that you consult your Doctor before starting any new physical activity.)
