Is it just me or do you also have trouble working out consistently? When I give into my urge to run, I keep it up for about a week or two, and then I am back on hiatus for a month. Then of course my body is all sore after working out again, because it’s not used to working certain muscles. So I get all motivated and decide to push through the pain only to repeat the cycle all over again. I admire those who dedicate themselves to an everyday or even several-days-a-week exercise regimen, but I haven’t had much success with that since my days of running track in high school.
Recently I came across a 30 day ab challenge on my Facebook timeline. I made a mental note to try that “someday” and kept scrolling, but a week later, I was still thinking about it. So I printed it out, and I’ve been diligently staying on course for a week now. It starts off in small increments of a set of 4 exercises: sit ups, crunches, leg raises, and plank. Day one’s set looked like this: 15 sit ups / 5 crunches / 5 leg raises / 10 second plank versus Day 30 is: 125 sit ups / 200 crunches / 65 leg raises / 120 second plank. I am on Day 10 and just finished 50 sit ups / 50 crunches / 30 leg raises / 38 second plank. I am already seeing results, so I am excited for what my abs will look like at Day 30. I also decided I want to strengthen my arms. I feel like I neglect those when I workout. So I printed off blogilates 30 day arm challenge as well, and just do the two in cohesion with one another.
