It’s become painfully clear that I’m not spending enough time focusing on my own personal fitness. With that, I have decided to hold myself accountable by exposing my very own abs to you and pledging to do better by them while you watch.
Yes, those are my abs. Call it my “before” photo. While I realize that my abs don’t look all that horrendous to some, rest assure it’s because I’m standing up very straight and sucking my belly button into my spine as hard as I possibly can.
When is all said and done, I need to do some work on my abs and my entire core.
Here’s what I propose – I will commit to doing 300 abdominal reps, every other day. I have chosen this number and this time frame because I know it’s something I can stick with. I am pushing myself, but not going crazy. I will do this for one month, and then reassess the situation. Lets see what my abs look like in one month. I promise to let you see, for better or for worse.
How about you – I would love for you take this challenge with me. It’s always more fun to exercise with someone even if we never meet. So, if you’d like to be part of this, email me, comment on this posting, or do it in secret. You can set your own rules. Rules that work for you.
Here’s a list of suggested ab/core exercises to get us started. More to come…

Impressive abs! I can suck my belly button to my spine and it’s still more like rolling foothills than the salt flats of Utah. I should join in your challenge…but 300 is a daunting number. Can I even count that high?

You can set your own number. Choose something that makes sense to you. How about 200? Come on! You can do 200.
