My Activity Tracking
My target 10000 Crunches
I’m crunching to support families facing childhood cancer
This March I’m committing to crunching everyday from the 1st to the 31st of March to support children and their families facing cancer.
I’ve created this page because my family experienced first hand the amazing work that Redkite do and the tangible, practical assistance they provide families facing childhood cancer. I’m inspired by the work that Redkite does and wanted to support them by raising funds through my participation in the crunch4kids with cancer challenge.
Help me help them by donating to my page through the donate button now! The more people who support Redkite enables them to support more children and families, so please donate and share my page with your friends and family! Thank you for your generous support, it means a lot!

Vertigo is funSunday 21st Mar So turns out I really don’t know how to do a proper crunch so trying to smash out 500+ crunches in one session probably wasn’t a good idea. I’ve strained my neck and have been nursing a nasty bout of vertigo for the last week. Tried pushing on with crunches but the vertigo was just getting worse so I’ve opted for ab workouts that won’t strain my neck. Scissor Kicks, Jack Knifes and leg raises aplenty!
At the halfway markMonday 15th Mar So I’ve had a bit of a bumpy run so far as I missed a couple of days last week but hoping I can make them up before the end of the month. Hitting at least 600 crunches the last few days. The abs still resemble a dropped pie but the extra hamburgers and midnight Mars Bars haven’t helped in that department. It’s a process right?
This 500 a day target really was a stretchWednesday 3rd Mar Ooof. 500 crunches a day may have been a tad over ambitious. I am gradually increasing by 50 a day and got to 300 this evening without crying. The struggle that Artie went through and all the pain he had to abide is solid motivation to just get on with it. So; eyes on the prize, aiming for 400 tomorrow and 500 a day before the end of the week.
200 is the new 500 right??Monday 1st Mar When I asked Laura last week how many crunches I should aim for a day, she throws out “a casual 500 should be easy enough, you’ve got the core of a nuclear reactor young squire!” And I thought to myself, ya know what, she’s right, if I just do a few in the morning, day and night I could smash this! Fast forward a few days, and true to form, I’ve left it to the last minute and arrogantly thought I could knock out 500 cheeky crunches in the half hour before bed. Turns out, as I suspected, I’ve got the core of a rotten apple and a really sensitive coccyx so 200 was a good as I could manage this evening without crying for mercy...Hey, it’s a solid first effort. I’ll take the win. Back at it tomorrow and aim for the 500.
