500 Days of Squats

#apinkwarrior is the hashtag I will be using for this journey. Join me if you are feeling up to the challenge. It begins January 1 2019 and will go till May 15 2020.

So why squats? I get this question a lot. It goes back to the HUGE transformation photo before photo… didn’t read that post no worries I will post it again because I’m damn proud of it.

The photo on the left was the first day I began squat everyday. My original plan was to squat for a 100 days. Once I reached 100 I was like why stop there. The photo on the right was day 365. Now during this I changed my diet and began intermittent fasting. Squats became my warm up before every training session. I loved how I felt. I would mix it up between front squats, wide, box, narrow etc. I only made it to 452 days due to ending up in the hospital, not because of lifting, but it was the first time my blood clot from cancer made an appearance. I will discuss more on clot in a later post.

Through cancer I have been trying to gain some control back in my life. It was time to reach my goal of 500 days of squats. Join me, follow me, it will if anything be an adventure.

I will be posting updates here, on my Instagram @krissirae3 and on my twitter @krissirae333

I was diagnosed with two different breast cancers in August 2017. In June 2019 one of them spread to my brain. What started as a fight through breast cancer became a battle living with metastatic disease.

    1. Haha I would say customize it for yourself. Make it challenging but not something you don’t stick with. My volume will change each day depending on my type of squat.
