I was at the doctors office a few weeks back and saw an article about some actress, can’t remember her name but blond hair and blue eyes and think (yes I know that really narrows it down). Actually I want to say Cameron Diaz but don’t quote me on that one. Anyway it said how this actress did not like to work out but to keep her core nice and tight she did intervals of plank position everyday. Holding it for a minute or two and sometimes dong leg raises while in plank.
Well, I like to work out but am having trouble fitting it in so I have decided to add this along with my TV jogging for the next couple of weeks. There is proof, my 4 year old is getting good at taking pics for my blogs so I have attached one.
I am going to see how long I can stand to hold the position and see if I can get just a few more seconds everyday. Then add some leg raises etc. Today was 132 seconds and then 4-5 small intervals while we tried to get the picture right. My tummy hurts a bit!
This way I can squeeze in short exercise and toning while I chaise down my two kids, do laundry, and make dinner. So far my stomach inches are still at 42. I have not lost nay since my last inch but have not gained so I still have a number to use in my experiment.
Remember that if you want to do this to you have to suck in the stomach and squeeze the butt in order to get the full effect!
