Health & Fitness in May

In May, I decided to challenge myself with two quick ab centered workouts each day.  I had been struggling with my running and thought maybe this would help as much as anything else I'd tried.  I'm happy to report that I completed every single one of the ab and squat challenges in May.  And it did make a significant difference with I started running again toward the middle of the month.

I didn't record my meals as closely as I had in previous months, but I took my lunch to work almost everyday.  This has been helpful in not only being able to control portion sizes, but also in providing myself with healthy options.  We also have not eaten out much this month choosing instead to try new, healthy recipes at home.

  1. That's awesome, Andrea! :) Keep it up. You rock!

  2. Sometimes you do just need something different to focus on when running isn't happening for whatever reason. Good job keeping active!

  3. I'm doing a 30 day ab challenge too :) I can feel myself getting stronger every day!
