There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

I couldn't really do any strength training on my core today because I did that yesterday, so I had to find something else to do. I raked leaves yesterday, and I found that that really worked my abs and back a lot, not to mention my arms and shoulders. I had to twist to rake which was probably working my obliques. I definitely felt it in my abs and back afterwards, so I did a little more of that today to complete the challenge.

Happy Friday to you!

Your challenge today is to work on your CORE areas (i.e. stomach, back, sides).

These are the areas that most of us have trouble with.

Exercising your core helps your posture and MAKES YOU LOOK THINNER.

Who can argue with that?

See the Spark Fitness area for CORE exercises that are appropriate for your fitness level.

Feel free to share what you did.

You can also share a fitness DVD or type of gym class that you worked out with.

The type of exercise might be different, but the results all point towards a leaner stomach and stronger back.

Have an AWESOME Friday!
