Step It Up Sunday: The 30 Day Ab Challenge, Getting Rid of The Michelin Man

Happy Sunday!

I started this little section of my blog to try and help push myself further and set goals for myself that once shared I don't feel like I can really back out of. I have been saying for the last 4 month's that I would like to tone my body and lose some weight to help me feel more like my pre- pregnancy self but for some reason I cant find any motivation. I decided to try concentrating on just one area of my body that was getting me down the most instead of setting myself so many goals that I felt destined to fail. After having Isabelle (2yr old daughter) I don't think I have ever been entirely happy with my stomach/hip area, the stretch marks I can deal with but the deflated tyre is just pushing me over the edge and I am too young to crack the big knickers out just yet. I had seen a picture making its way round social media sites called the 30 day Ab challenge. It looked like the perfect start to having a body overhaul and may help me find that motivation I seem to be lacking in so much recently. After searching pinterest for the picture (here is the link if you would like to take a look) I actually decided to download an app I thought this would be easier for me to keep track of my progression and also to encourage me to do this routine daily.

Above is the screenshot's of the app logo and also the app homepage, you can see that the homepage is a tracker which shows you your progress and logs if you have completed that's days workout. What is the 30 day ab challenge? Basically it is a series of 4 exercises (crunches, sit ups, leg raises and planks) meant to push your core muscles in to change quickly. Each day the exercises will increase but still only taking you a matter of minutes to complete, making it the perfect routine for busy women. 

I'm hoping this may give me the kick up the backside I need to help me feel more comfortable in my own skin. I will let you know next Sunday what my thoughts are on this crazy exercise and how it is working for me.

Saying bye bye to the tyre's and hello to the six pack
