Recently I took up a 5 day ab challenge. I have a friend who is quite fit and fabulous, and she set out to challenge a bunch of us to work on our abs. So I thought I’d give it a go. As you can imagine I had a bit of a roller-coaster of emotions over those 5 days. Here’s how it went:
Day 1: Yes!! Let’s get this started! 🙂
Day 2: Ok, here we go, I’m tired from yesterday but I can do this.
Day 3: Yay it’s national wine day! Oh wait, I’m in the middle of a 5 day ab challenge. Ugh, why do bad things always happen to me?
Day 4: Is this thing still going on?
Day 5: Yes it’s finally over! Hey this was actually kind of cool, maybe I should just keep this up?
Did I mention that I happened to wake up with the flu on the very first day of the challenge? Yep, I had to do the entire challenge whilst also nursing the flu and taking care of a toddler. I’m glad I accepted the challenge though because if there’s one thing I need it’s to work on my abs. It wasn’t easy but it felt great to get through it and it has provided good motivation to keep up with the ab work. I won’t promis to do it every day, but I’m sure I can keep it up a few days a week.
Have you ever done some sort of fitness challenge? How did it go? Do you still keep it up?
