Keep your EYE ON THE BALL. What is the goal?Will this action get you closer?
slowly but surely.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

face your stuff. don't stuff your face.

be so busy improving yourself that you have no time to find fault with others

Did you watch that video??? OMG!

I plan to pledge 100 (25 of different types) per day, for a total of 500.

Get ready!

PS:
In case you are interested and own a NutriBullet or MagicBullet system, I've created a new Team call: NutriBullet Rx-Pro-900 / MagicBullet Recipes

I'd love to see your recipes and I'll be sharing mine as well!

So, if this is something that interests you & you own one of these systems, please stop by & join us (well, me right now....LOL).

Exercise Week! Who-Hoooooo!

So here it is! The dreaded but oh so good for you (and me!) 100+ Crunches MC!

Did you know that refined sugar goes and salt may be the biggest contributors to a bloated abdominal area AND did you know that stress is a factor in belly fat? Read this article and find out more: tinyurl.com/2ylxp7

I have been trying to not do any refined sugar for the last 2 days....it's harder that it seems! That means no coffee (Remember? We got of the pink/yellow/blue stuff a while back?)

Read on! The MC for this week is to focus on our abdominal area by EITHER:
1) completing at least 100 Abdominal crunches, of any type you desire, for 4 of the 7 days this MC is in effect, for a total of 400 crunches in a week.

OR

2) declaring a goal of how many crunches you wish to accomplish in the week and then posting your progress, like this:

By Tuesday, I declare 500 total crunches for the week: 500/0
On Tuesday I do 120, so I would post: 500/120
On Wednesday I do 50, so I would post: 500/170

and so on. You choose which way you'd like to handle the challenge by declaring which method of MC on Monday, the day it starts. All that I ask is that if you choose #2, that you think about what will challenge you as far as number. If 200, or even 300 is a challenge for you, then post that, but if you are already whipping out 300 each week with no problem, push yourself; challenge yourself, REACH!

Some folks have a hard time with this MC because of neck or back problems. For those folks, do it this way: lay on the floor and lift both legs at a time off the floor as far as you can and hold it. You can do this for #2 of the Challenge and plan for yourself what is comfortable.You may also try a standing leg lift crunch, either holding or not holding a weight.

Also, it also wouldn't hurt to increase your water, decrease your refined sugar and de-stress, but hey, one step and one MC at a time, right? :)

As always, post your progress in this Forum. :)

If you choose, you can combine any other of the tips from the articles, but they are not required for this weeks MC.

Here is an SP article with a few suggestions for different kinds of crunches: tinyurl.com/2fqpum

Here, also, is Coach Nicole's Ab Video that you can do, if you choose: tinyurl.com/3cz6je

Don't forget to get your 3 points, too, for reading it.
