Not the best way to get a flat tummy, Lynn, but at least you can see the brighter side..

GREAT!

:)

I'm doing little bitty crunches trying to get my ab strength back since surgery put a 19" scar across my abdomen...the good news is that I now have a flat tummy, the flat tummy I've always wanted. The bad news is that it's weak. No pilates for me yet!

Apparently I inadvertently gave you all a week off again...time to get exercising!

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 about that here: tinyurl.com/2ylxp7

When I switched to the paleo diet in January, I cut out all refined sugar. That meant coffee for me since almost all creamers, those one's I was addicted to, have an enormous amount of sugar. Too, the "fake" stuff is terrible for you. I was using 4-5 packs of Sweet-n-Low a day (in fact, we have a MC for that!)

But I digress...read on! The MC for this week is to focus on our abdominal area in one of two ways (don't get all overboard now!) 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 the 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. emoticon

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.

Hugs ya'll and let's whip those abs into shape!
