Well, it’s now week 5, which means the Ab Challenge is finally over! *Cheers*
I feel pretty accomplished with completing my first challenge. Some days it was extremely difficult to not just head home immediately after my workouts. But, I stuck it out and now I’m much better at a lot more ab exercises than before.
My goals for the challenge were:
- To get better at doing the actual core exercises
- To make doing core work after my regular workouts more habitual.
In my opinion, I’ve achieved both, so I’m calling the challenge a success!
Here’s my before and after picture.
I can sort of see a difference. Aside from my braids being gone, and my mirror being dirtier, my abs have become a little more defined. I wasn’t expecting much to change physically, so I’m happy with the minimal changes for now. What do you guys think? Do you see a difference?
I’m not sure if I’ll do another challenge immediately or not. Maybe in a month or two, or if I find one that really appeals to me. Until then I’ll continue with my ab workouts without the pressure of a challenge hovering over my back 😃
I numbered the posts for the ab challenge horribly, but I’ll go back later and fix them so that they’re accurate and easier to follow. Until then here’s a look back at my past updates from the very beginning:
Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, & Week 4
Take a look at them and try out the challenge for yourself!
