7 Day Ab Challenge Results!

The Results are in!

If you follow me on Instagram you've probably noticed a few 3 minute work out each morning, and if you read this post you already know why there were a few short and sweet workouts!

My good friend Meagan over at Megforit.com put together a 7 day challenge to help kickstart your journey towards a flat tummy. Since I had just been cleared to begin exercising again, I thought I'd give it a try with a few modifications.

Details of the challenge:

  • Complete the AB circuit 1-3 times 2x a day
  • Drink only water
  • No sugar

My Modifications:
  • Complete the circuit 1x each morning
  • no added sugar to my coffee 
  • make a conscious effort to drink water 

My Goal: 
  • Fit into a pair of non-maternity shorts comfortably
  • commit to 7 days of abdominal exercises 
We had a visit to see family as well as a Disney trip right in the middle of this, and I knew I'd not be able to avoid treats so  that is why I didn't want to commit to "no sugar", I did try to watch my intake of treats. 

My second born daughter joined in on the fun with me each day, I loved seeing her try to plank with me and do some crunches! I believe it's never to soon for children to see their parents making healthy choices.

The Results: 

Here I am at Disney at 7 weeks postpartum in a pair of non maternity shorts! 

I am very proud of myself for committing to all  7 days, I found that it only took about 3-4 minutes each morning to do 1 circuit, and if I didn't have 3-4 minutes for my health, I needed to reevaluate some things. 

Question: Do you have 3 minutes for your health?
