Day 4: 14-day Flat Tummy Challenge

I’m later than normal for today’s post but that’s because I used the morning to chat with my sister over breakfast and spend time with the best nephew anyone could ask for!

Here’s the Day 4 video:

The video helps with becoming more aware of your body’s positions in order to improve and better your planks! Holly talks about getting rid of the “hunchback”. It mostly is related to strengthening your upper back and thus improving core strength. The video suggests that you incorporate a yoga position called the cat-cow stretch. I remember doing this in yoga class and it doesn’t just help you but it also feels good doing it so try it out!

Updates on me:
Did my planks just once yesterday instead of twice — 2 planks, 20 seconds each.
I was super bad with dinner — burger and fries.. but OMG they were good!
Like I mentioned yesterday, I had my appointment with a trainer at the gym. It was good to have that since it gives me a goal to work towards. My weight and measurements were not bad but I was quite disappointed about my body fat percentage. However, I am now determined more than ever to work hard and get that body fat percent down. The plan is to do cardio at least 4 times a week and weight training at least 2 times a week. I’ll keep you all posted on that every month!

Happy Friday and Happy Valentine’s Day — just don’t forget that it’s not the only day in the year to show your love.. do it every day!
