5×5 – Flawless Challenge

Let’s start the countdown! My “honeymoon” vacation in Mediterranean Europe is coming up in exactly 55 days!

I’ve created this 55 day strength training challenge called: 5️⃣ by 5️⃣ !

My bestie Mahi and I challenged each other to do a set of exercises, eat healthy low carb/sugar and high fiber meals everyday –> NO CHEAT DAYS!!!

We had to do an exception for wine, vodka and whiskey. They are allowed as long we drink in moderation! Of course, it’s so obvious that I did even had to mention it.

We’ve got to do that each single day.

85 minutes (1h25) work out 🏋 

600 active calories 🏃🏽‍♀️

1940 total calories 🤸🏽‍♀️

11,250 steps 🚶🏽‍♀️
