I have been gone for a while from this part of my blog, and it's mainly been due to lack of hours in the day.
In an ideal world I'd love to be able to post here regularly, exercise regularly, eat sensibly all of the time, as I am only too aware of what happens to me and my body and my mood if I don't make the right choices.
I am not 100% happy with my shape at the moment, and although I fit into standard 8-10 clothes all over, I feel I am so un-toned and just *soft* for lack of better way of describing it.
I have personally always preferred to be toned and fit and have been known to have a six -pack stomach at various stages of my life an even though I have 2 kids I don't accept that as an excuse to myself for NOT looking my absolute best.
I have decided to part take in a "30 day Ab challenge" run by Melissa from
Melissa is a fitness fanatic (whom I used to work with in a gym many years ago) who ran half a marathon this year with a group of girls from Twitter formed by the lovely @BangsandaBun and when she tweeted about it recently I thought here's my cue to make the month of November the month where I get back on track and get those abs back in shape!
There really is no excuse for me, I know I am capable of being a lot fitter - but sometimes lazing about in the evenings and wasting time of Social Media sites is a much preferred option!
My inspirational picture would have to be this of Anna Kournikova.. Yes please!
She's got a fab body, abs of steel yet still maintaining a girly feminine look
SO NO MORE EXCUSES! I hate excuses and I hate when I hear myself making them!
I am the only person holding me back and I cannot excuse myself anymore.
So Mel will be running the 30 day challenge through her blog and Twitter and there is a group of us who've committed to taking part and we'll be following a grueling abs routine for 30 days and tweet and blog about it, and keep each other motivated
I have decided that as well as doing the abs challenge I will change my food & general exercise habits for the month of November, and obviously hope that the the good habits stick after November.
If anything I'll be in great shape for Christmas parties ;)
So all there is left to say now is -WISH ME LUCK- Join us if you want to - all the details are right here:thru the blue.me/category/30-day-ab-challenge
I shall be posting about my progress here and definitely on Twitter as Chic Beauty Blog on Twitter - Ciao for now x
