Love My Abs Challenge, Week 4

If you’re just hearing about February’s Love My Abs Challenge for the first time, it’s not too late to join in the fun.  Basically, we started with a 100 dally ab exercises and tweeted about our achievements: #lovemyabs.  (This week we move up to 160 exercises.)  Then, each Wednesday, I’ll host a linky party for you to link up and share your recap post or add your Twitter handle.

That’s it.  Now sit-up and take action!  Show your abs some love this February!




To be honest, I am really not happy with this photo, but has nothing to do with results, because clearly my abs are showing.  My disappointment has more to do with bad lighting and PMS.  I must have taken (no lie) 50 photos of my abs but I just couldn’t get the lighting right.

And then, I wore the wrong shorts.  See, my cute little running shorts have a scrunchy elastic waist. So every time I sat at the computer to inspect my photos, I would get these little elastic marks in my abdomen.  Now, you may think, “No big deal. You can’t even see it.” Remember you are dealing with a woman PMSing and there is no rational behind loathing a photo.

Had the lighting or my knowledge on how to use my fancy DSLR camera been better, I think the definition and progress would have been clearer.  Oh well.  One more week to make the magic happen!

I may hate the photo but I love my abs!

  1. Congratulations on your results! I can’t do most of these exercises you have listed because I have a diastasis recti. I wonder what would be a safe (similar) program for mamas like me who are trying to heal this common side-effect of pregnancy?

    • Thank you! Please come join us! It’s not too late. Follow #lovemyabs on Twitter and tweet your reps. We have a wonderful support system and we will cheer for every rep you do.

  2. Wow, your results are certainly showing. I’ve started to get more active after ditching a whole lot of excuses at the door but my bout of ill health has kept me from exercising more these weeks. I’ll be dropping by for more inspiring posts! Way to go 🙂

  3. Look at your abs getting all ripped! Those are some definite results. I majorly could use some ab work and some ab definition. And remove all the cookies on top of those abs! WAY TO GO!

    • Thank you! It’s not too late to join in! Start now and swing back next week to share you progress. Follow #lovemyabs. All the cool kids are doing it. lol I’ve got another challenge lined up for March. Details to follow!
