Day 18 / 150 of Canada 150 challenge. Working on core strength today by focusing on the upper and lower abs. The biggest thing I like to remind people about when it comes to wanting definition in their abs is nutrition if you have a high body fat percentage then you won't be able to see those strong abs. A good nutrition strategy is key for achieving that six pack goal. But working on the abs still has a lot of benefits, a strong core helps protect the back and helps transmit force effectively throughout the body like during squats.
Today we are doing
75 leg lifts
75 curl ups
Break them up as needed into smaller sets and mix if needed as well. Lauren and I did all leg lifts and then all curl ups, those curl ups got in a hurt
Today is my first attempt at a workout in 7 days.
This week was supposed to be week 3 of my 3 week program. I was supposed to end with a bang. Kick it's ass.
But can I be honest? I just...couldnt. My mind wasn't there and neither was my body. I was tired. You know the tired I'm talking about? It lives in your bones tired. We all experience it from time to time. No amount of sleep seemed to matter either.
Also, My scoliosis had my hip all out of whack and I was in pain. I don't talk about that enough. I struggle daily with back and hip pain. Ironically, the very thing that helps it the most, exercise, was making me feel worse.
So I simply allowed myself a rest period. Not a day. A period until l started feeling even slightly back to normal and then I would go.
And here I am. I'm running today. I'll pick back up Monday with my program. This isn't about being ripped or <enter some arbitrary clothing size here>. This is about my life. My health. And the quality of both. It's not always easy...rarely actually. But it's possible. Determination and consistency and support.
