I hope you all had a good November?
I had a challenging one, in more ways than one.
My 30 day ab challenge on the whole went OK. There were days where there simply weren't enough hours in the day, and days where I was sore, so I didn't do any work. I was OK with doing my exercises - it was the food side I struggled with. Much as I keep telling myself I want to and need to eat GOOD, I do fall in with both feet now and again (too often).
But I am happy with my shape and weight now, so I need to live and be able to eat what I want in moderation (or at least that is what I have convinced myself).
I have plenty of new exercise DVDs that I shall continue doing and a new Swiss ball that I do my ab crunches on.
L: before- R: after
Not the biggest visual difference when standing like that, but when I lift my arms in a certain way (I know, so natural) I can see the six pack but there will always be a nice protective layer (of fat) over them -but my stomach has flattened down and my love handles at the back (jeans over spillage) has gone too.
I have in total gone down by 5lb from 1st November - 30th November.
It was a hard challenge and I am not sure I can commit myself to any other monthly challenges, as it felt so long and I wanted to have a break as I've been so busy with life.
I am keen to see how all the other Team 30 Day Ab Challengers got on, so I am off to stalk their blogs now :)
I was wondering what kind of posts would be interesting on this part of the blog- perhaps some fitness DVD reviews?
Speak to you all soon xxx
