FIRST MAKE SURE EVERYONE HAS SIGNED FOR 7 on the 7th!! Almost 50 people right now, but we can do better!! RunningLaur has made us a fun logo and people are offering up prizes...I'm just saying...
How about a 30 day ab challenge?? I know we can't keep going with busting our humps every day to earn points, so in thinking a little more creatively I've come up with the 30 day ab challange.
I think it would be great for each of us to select a different program and then report in on the results... we've all started a program to never truly finish it...but now you'd be responsible to others for reporting and well not looking like a slacker. What's the worst that could happen..your jeans fit better?! Plus every runner and walker needs a strong core to keep them injury free, now is your chance to committ publicly to working on it.
FREEBIES TO TEST
Abs-for-life is willing to send out a book with complete details for someone to test...first one who says they are truly willing to follow the plan and tell us all if it works...gets it.
Abs Diet for Women will send you a copy of the book to follow! Again will you follow it? Let me know.
Skinny Bitch has sent a Bootcamp and Body DVD for someone to test and review...first two who are interested in realllly following it...get one. (Note these are best for beginners, not those of you who are doing an intense weight lifting or ab routine right now.)
So do you have a DVD that you do sporadically?? Have something you've been considering, but just haven't gotten the motivation to start?
Felice maybe you could borrow that Ab Rocket from your Mom and give it a 30 day go?? 5 minutes a day according to the website...and look up to 5 inches gone magically!

Yeah good run this morning!! I can run so much faster outside, it's crazy..I don't really understand it because it used to be the opposite. Maybe it's because of the incline on the treadmill it feels easier outside...twinges on the downhill, but otherwise fantastic!! Time now for some abs...yup I'm reviewing some options now
