I am 3+ days behind in the 30-Day Ab Challenge (Day 14, Day 22 and Day 25, plus 130 crunches from Day 21). There’s only 4 days left, so I’ve given myself an extension until July 3rd.
I had to make adjustments so that I wouldn’t quit. I did the situps, crunches, and leg lifts in sets. For example, on Day 21, instead of 90 situps straight, I did 3 sets of 30. I did not break up the planks. I am up to 100 seconds.
Visually, I don’t see any improvement…no six pack abs…yet. But, I stepped up to the challenge most days, and found out that I can plank.
For July, I was invited to do the 30-Day Arm Challenge, but I gracefully declined. Pushups and arm dips are too ambitious for the summer.
I briefly clicked on the 30-Day Little Black Dress Challenge. But, at 46, I’m now more realistic. 1)Burpees — Not even closely related to slurpees. 2)No room for a little black dress in this season’s Project 333 capsule. 3)Again, it’s summer. I have abs-olutely zero motivation.
I’m going for Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred. Maybe Jillian can motivate me. A few years ago, when my son was trying to make weight for pee wee football, we bought this DVD and it helped him lose about 8 pounds. To be fair, we also cut out all sweetened drinks and french fries. Not sure I can do that…but we’ll see.
So what’s your workout for the summer? Or how do you deal with the sound of the ice cream truck?
