Miss you too, girl!

I did about 50 crunches yesterday as part of a water aerobics class...30 water burpees! These are awesome! I decided to try water aerobics last week and this and it's great. Would love to get certified as an Aqua Zumba instructor someday!

The good news...down to 147.6! Woot!

Eating very clean still, all natural, organic foods, no sugar, etc. I'm back in my JEANS people! Feeling good.

OMG!!! I miss you all. I have worked everyday since the last week in January and will be working everyday until mid April.
But my success has been that I'm making good food choices(not perfect, but I'm ok with it for now) and I've carved out time to do a considerable amount of exercise!
It's Thursday now and I will commit to 50 crunches Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday! For 200 total!
So today's entry is 50/200
Thanks for this challenge!

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:

Here, also, is Coach Nicole's Ab Video that you can do, if you choose:
Don't forget to get your 3 points, too, for reading it.
