Last week I was busy planking for a contest. What? Cassey Ho of Blogilates was holding a “popsters in plank photo contest”. There were three categories: Most people in a plank, oddest location to plank, and random plank. You can read more about it here. Why would I do this? Because I wanted to win this:
Cassey has her own activewear line called Bodypop active. Very cute stuff.
If there’s one thing I love as much as fitness its fitness clothes. When I saw this, I had to step out of my comfort zone and participate.
So I started to plank in some uncommon places
First on the toilet
Then in the home section of target. My favorite place to shop. I kind of embarrassed my 10-year-old son on this one.
And outside of Target on these fun concrete balls. My husband always loved to jump on them (before his Achilles rupture injury)
Next on my chiropractor’s table. I just happened to be wearing a dress that day which made it a little challenging.
Last, I wanted to include my dog Rusty, I tried a regular plank but he kept jumping off. I didn’t realize his 20lb body would make it so hard. It didn’t help that I kept laughing either 🙂
Then I tried a reverse plank but he wouldn’t stay long enough for me to actually do a reverse plank. Thanks a lot Rusty.
The winners were announced on Monday and I was not one of them 😦 but its okay because I had fun participating. I normally don’t like to share pictures of myself with the world but it turned out to be fun. I could not believe how many people entered and how creative they got. You can see the photos on Instagram under #popstersinplank. There were thousands!
Thanks for reading. I’ll be back soon with a recipe:)
