Having purple as your favorite color means you are sensitive and compassionate, understanding and supportive, thinking of others before yourself - you are the person others come to for help - being needed motivates you but sometimes people take advantage of you.

Being a personality color purple, you have a peaceful and tranquil quality and a quiet dignity about you. You are usually introverted rather than extroverted and may give the impression of being shy although this is not the case.

With your personality color purple you inspire others with your creative thinking and your ability to deal positively with adversity.

As a personality color purple, you are a generous giver, asking for little in return except friendship.

You are a visionary, with high ambitions, dreams and desires, and a compulsion to help humanity and to improve the planet earth. You are a good judge of character and sum others up quite quickly and accurately, although you usually see the best in everybody.

    Karen R (ADALOUISE) from the Scarlet Dragons would like you to join her this month in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Challenge! Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many of us, and we all know early detection is the key, whether male or female!

    So before you give the tatas a once-over, let’s get in a workout first! The exercises listed have a modifier with each, so you can join in at any fitness level! If there’s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isn’t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now let’s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!

    S-50 SQUATS (50 Adductor/Abductors)

    E-50 FRONT JABS (50 Seated Biceps Curls)

    L- 30 LATERAL LUNGES (30 Seated Hip Extensions)

    F-30 FORWARD LUNGES (30 Squats, holding the back of a chair)

    E-50 JUMPING JACKS (50 Seated Jumping Jacks)

    X-30 PUSH UPS (30 Wall Pushups)

    A-30 ALTERNATING HAMSTRING CURLS (30 Standing Hip Flexion/Extension holding the back of a chair or wall)

    M-50 HIGH KNEE MARCH IN PLACE (50 Seated High Knee Marches)

    Do what you can, modify what you need to, but try your best, regardless of fitness level! If you’ve got a suggestion on an exercise you’d like to see incorporated into the challenges, please let us know!
