Whittle My Middle

Better late than never!  I’m officially joining Angela’s Whittle My Middle in 30 Days Challenge.

The challenge began November 11 and goes until December 9.  I missed the first 9 days, but I’m still going to work my hardest for the remaining 21 days.  3 weeks is enough time to make a difference in my true waist, hip, and butt measurements.

Here are my before photos:



As soon as I find a tape measure in this messy apartment, I’ll add my measurements!

The challenge calls for 6 minutes of core work every day!  Wish me luck getting stronger and leaner.  (I might add lunges and squats and make it a 10 minute/day workout cuz my bum is getting flattened from sitting at work all day!)

    Thanks Meg! But I still think the challenge will be good because I’m always slacking with strength training. This will force me to focus on my core…and maybe get rid of some of the tightness in my right lower back. (And the six pack needs to stick around for next summer when I’m back in a bathing suit, haha)
