~Whittle Your Middle~

Welcome to the 30 Day ~Whittle Your Middle~ Challenge!

wanna follow my training
or see my results???

There are so many benefits to strengthening your Core and I feel that this area will help me fulfill my complete body fitness goal since having two babies in two years! I have some time before my official training schedule begins for my half marathon...although the original one I planned in June conflicts with my high school reunion...I still plan to find one that I can race in before the Triathlons in the fall. I hope that you will follow along in my journey and accept this challenge with me!

~Whittle Your Middle~

~Who: Any and Everybody I hope...but me for sure!
~What: Commit to doing 6-10 minutes of ab work 5 days a week.
~When: February 18-March 20
~Where: Anywhere and Everywhere
~How: Investigate and incorporate the foods that claim to whittle your middle.
I will take before & after measurement of my waist along with photos.
Document my achievements and nutrition research.
Follow the routine listed below:

1. Straight Arm Plank...hold for 60-90 seconds

2. Side Plank...30-60 seconds each side

3. Superman/Banana from P90x...thanks Lisa

4. Prone Plank

5. Prone Plank Reverse Curl 10-12 reps

6. Supine Bridge w/ Arm Extension 10-12 reps

I will continue with my yoga, cardio and strength training.

This is MY Mission...Do YOU accept it???
