I had a triple-decker something-or-other this morning with a wheel-barrel-sized helping of homefries so you know that something's got to be done to prevent me from splitting my pants. I love Mythology, I love Doug's cooking, I have no plans of giving it up and despite what the weather is doing at the moment, I am choosing to believe that it will actually be spring one day and following spring will swimsuit season. Eventually. So... I need a freakin' intervention. Or...
How 'bout I propose a 30-day challenge to myself (and anyone else who loves a fried breakfast as much as I do) inspired by my girl Natalia. Natalia is brand spanking new to LEKfit and was browsing through all of the options on Lauren's OnDemand website when she came across a mini core workout. It's only five minutes long, but it packs a punch - right to the gut. Right where I need it.
Natalia became so enthused after doing it, proclaiming it was exactly what her middle cried out for, and that she was going to do it everyday for the rest of her life or until she saw that muffin-top vanish. I was like hell yeah, you go girl! And then I went for breakfast and ate way too much.
Now I'm like, she might be onto something, dammit.
So this is what I propose...
Starting today - (several hours from now once I awaken from my carb-induced coma) I am going to do my regular LEKfit workout along with that mini-core add on.
And I am going to attempt to do it everyday for the next 30 days.
So what is today?... April 15th (Chef Emery birthday) until May 14th (the day after Mother's day). The reason this is so timely is because I'm going into another extremely busy period at work, so there are just going to be days where getting a full workout in might feel impossible, but everybody, no matter how busy they are, can find five minutes in their day to work their core right? So I have no excuse. I'm gonna do that workout (and whatever else I can manage to fit in) every day for 30 days and I'm betting I'll see a huge difference in my marshmallow middle.
I'll letcha know how it goes and if you elect to do it with me, that would be awesome because
Happy Day 1 of the 30-Day Core Challenge beauties!
