By the time we take our next rest day from the ab challenge, on Monday, we will mark the half way point, but it’s the really hard part that awaits us! For today, day 13, we do 60 sit ups, 75 crunches, 40 leg raises and 50 seconds in plank. I find once I get through the sit ups, I know I can make it. Please be careful. People are reporting some aches and pains which may be related to taking on too many sit ups at one time. When your abs are not conditioned, your neck will get majorly involved in the work which can cause neck and back issues, so please be smart. It’s great to feel some soreness in the area of desire, but it’s never good to be injured or in real pain. Please continue to be smart as you tackle this challenge.
Mitch and I are having the thrill of some fruit ripening in the yard. Mangoes are just beginning to ripen and we have been able to enjoy a couple of them. They are great but get even greater as the season continues. By next week I am hoping to be able to share some….Yesterday, we had a big thrill as we pulled our first (of four) pineapples off and will hope to make a mango and pineapple fruit salad over the weekend. Or, then again, maybe some pineapple-mango drinks…hmmmmm
Here it is Friday the 13th and I hear that we will have a full moon tonight. So enjoy, stay safe, watch out for all the crazy people. Remember that Gardein products are BOGO at Publix (and though I am NOT a big fan of processed foods, these are a great go to product for those times you just want something quick and easy with the big bonus of knowing no animals were harmed in the making.
Have a great Friday …the 13th everyone.
