Baby Steps

Remember yesterday, when I said I was going to start incorporating other things, like pilates, weights, core, sleep, etc. into my training?  Well it started this morning.  After my morning run I did one plank.


Yep, just one.  For 60 seconds.  It’s harder than it sounds.  Go ahead and try it.  For 60 real seconds, not counting to 60 super fast.  Baby steps.

Now, if I could only stop eating 10 Christmas cookies and a glass of red wine a day, and also do a few more planks a day, you might be able to actually see my abs.

Like this:

Not like this (ick!):

If i get the nerve I may actually take – and post – a before and after picture of my (lack of) abs and see if progress is made during Lansing training.  Stay tuned.

Much more peaceful day today, thank goodness!

    Haha, I was doing a bunch of planks at PT yesterday. And, yes, a full minute is a LONG arse time (I usually do 30 seconds on my own)…I was dying during the last ones!!!! Full on arm shake and losing my form! I had no idea that much longer was going to be so much more difficult 🙂

    For whatever it’s worth, I think ripped abs looks awesome not icky 😦

    I am going to steal that before pic and post it on my fridge. And the cookie jar, and the snack drawer in my desk, and…. 🙂

    Oops, I meant to say that first ab pic. Not a before pic. Heck, if that’s someone’s before I may as well give up!
