I Did It!


No, not THAT - get your head outta the gutter!  I made it all the way through the Fab Ab February workouts!  (I think I only missed 2 - one at the very beginning because I started late and 1 in the middle when I had the flu.)  Today was insanely hard and I had to stop a few times on the push ups and finish the plank on my knees 1/2 way through, but I got it done.  (Clearly I'm not as strong as I'd like and/or the NROLFW workout left me more fatigued than I thought it did since I can barely lift my water bottle this morning.)  I have seen an improvement in my shoulders and back, but not much in the abs department, which is disappointing, but I know I'm stronger because the NROLFW ab work wasn't very tough on Monday.  Since the NROLFW workout incorporates ab and shoulder work, I don't know if I'll keep the push ups going.  I'll just need to see how I feel.  Also, the author is really not a fan of the basic sit up or crunch since it really hasn't been shown to do anything (I think my lack of ab improvement just proves that), so I'll stick with his ab work.

Since today is also Wednesday Check-In for the Shrink Yo-Self in 2012 challenge with Shrinking Jeans, I can report I'm down 0.6 this week.  Not great, but I'll take it.  Obviously my body is not wanting to get rid of the extra flab, which totally sucks.  I've been tracking a bit more consistently too and actually trying to get in more protein per the NROLFW book (I'm not following their diet plan exactly though, just trying to swap out some less nutrient-rich foods for ones higher in protein and include protein with my breakfast each morning.)

Did you participate in Fab Ab February?  If you did, what did you think? Will you try to keep it going?

Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Is anybody out there?

So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016.  Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
