About That Flat Abs Challenge . . . .

Neutrals

A couple a weeks ago I told you guys about MankoFit’s Flat Abs Challenge & how I was taking that challenge. . . .

Yeah, so about that. I fell completely off that thing. lol! I honestly tried my hardest & did pretty good up until Easter Sunday. I’m a southern girl so all that good cooking was calling my name & that was all she wrote! lol!

The idea was awesome but that was too much for me starting out. Like many of you I don’t more like haven’t) made time for the gym in my daily schedule but I workout whenever I can. I noticed was pretty successful with my fast during Lent and I know an important part of getting the body you want is your diet so I decided to continue fasting & improve my eating habits.

For the month of April I’m giving up something I LOVE: SWEETS!!! -so no desserts, no candy, no cereal, no pastries & no juice (except orange). Basically if it’s not naturally sweet or healthy I can’t have it. So far I’m 12 days in & only fiend for the goods when it’s in my face -which I try to avoid at all costs! lol! The calorie counting app My Fitness Pal has been helping a lot too, I make sure to watch my portions and I try to work out 3 times a week! 🙂

They say nothing worth having comes easy and I’m willing to do what it takes to get this body whipped in to shape! Are you?

Muah!

Flat Abs Challenge

Like many of you, I made it a goal of mine (not gonna call it a new years resolution cause I started my journey in November) to get fit & have the hot body I always dreamed of! Not jus for spring break, not jus for summer, I wanna be hot year round! I will admit I’ve fallen off the wagon more times than I can count -sugar & junk food are usually my demise- but that’s okay! Each time I start over I’m more disciplined because I know nobody is gonna GIVE me the body I want, I’m gonna hafta GO GET IT!!!
Now enough of my Tuesday inspiration. Lol! One of the things that keeps me on track is instagram! I get to stalk my body crushes (I have a crush on their bodies) Draya Michelle & Rosa Acosta & learn new exercises & techniques from fitness accounts. My all time fave is MankoFit -she has an AMAZING body, gives recipes & advice AND has regular fitness challenges -talk about a win/win/win!! This weekis the Flat Abs Challenge & is a continuation of last week -I’m just starting this week but I’m trying to catch up.

This no dairy thing is really kicking my ass!! I eat cheese, yogurt, milk, & ice cream at least twice a day! Plus downing all that water?! Whoo! But I made it through yesterday & am determined to make it the rest of the week.
For my HIIT I’ve letting Julian Michaels kick my butt

& doing full body weight training at the gym with my guy friends -exercising with a partner/partners helps a lot! Plus I like being the chick tough enough to workout with the boys. I keep up with everything with the “My Fitness Pal” app & taking pics every week.
If you think about it, fashion & fitness go hand in hand. If you look good on the inside you’ll look good on the outside & have more confidence to show off the best you you can be! I’m going to share more fitness advice, challenges & exercises for you guys & I want you to share the same with me. Leave tips in the comments or @ me (on twitter or IG) @BlondiesLipstk. It’s time for the sexier & fitter you to emerge so let’s get these bodies tight & right!!
