So very right....

Cannon is better, Maxi-Pup is better = I'm better. :D

When I did Zumba this week, when teaching my class, I concentrated on abs! Yay!

:D

Have you left me yet? I'm so sorry to have left you. I took the last month "off" (disappeared) because of so much going on.... In the last month, my pup is back to 100% or at least he appears to be. It was a hard road with taking him back to the vet every 3rd day and it cost a lot of money (pfffft) but his slipped disc seems to have slipped back in and healed itself. It was a lot of stress, worrying about him and I haven't lost a single pound in a month, I'm sure.

I don't know why it became so hard to post two posts on Spark each week but it did. I'm sorry.

I've been to Wyoming & Montana and back again and I feel terribly guilty about leaving you all like that. Here's this weeks challenge for all of those who have stuck with the group. I thank you.
________________________________________
____________________________

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.
