Today I am starting my 3 weeks to flat abs series. I'll be posting pics ALL DAY on my instagram feed (michellecfitness) so hop over and follow for all the goods :)
This is the beginning:
These are my self-professed squishy abs and I'm embarking upon a 3 week journey to see a difference. Why? Um, because I want to! LOL, no really I have noticed some back pain as well and aches and pains popping up, which generally means my core has gotten a bit lazy. So, what's my plan? It's easy enough:
Every morning starts with a mug of hot water, apple cider vinegar and cinnamon. This is followed by a Shakeology shake right before my workout.
My workouts are 6 day splits with 2-3 days focused on glutes and shoulders and the rest covering everything else. Here's the schedule for this week:
Monday: Butt, shoulders, abs, cardio
Tuesday: Arms, boxing, HIITS
Thursday: Butt, shoulders, abs, cardio
Friday: Arms, Boxing, HIITS
Saturday: 100's, lower body focus
Sunday: rest and recover
Now, the number 1 rule of flat abs is NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST!
I have cut my breads out and opted for oats, cut the creamers or milk from coffee and eliminated ALL sugars. Yeast feeds on sugar and yeast can build in the abdomen causing that bloated feeling.
My goal is to lift heavier and not have any treats or cheats for 3 full weeks. I'll be out of town for a few days so this should be fun :)
In order to avoid cravings, I plan my meals and snacks ahead of time as preparation is key.
Herbal teas are my friend, especially green tea and a sweet cinnamon tea that helps quiet the sugar monster.
So, check out the pics on Instagram! If you don't have it, I'll be trying to throw some on Twitter or Facebook as well.
Feel free to follow along and let me know what YOU accomplish in 3 weeks :)
