Abs. Fab. Friday.
So, one of those shallow moments in my life... It's Friday. A little entitled.
I'll probably never have abs like the dudes in the pictures, or Keith Boykin who motivates us with his fitness journal, or most of the guys on Hoodsworld. I've resigned myself to that... no spilled milk, crying, or violins. Besides, I really REALLY like bread... and cereal.
However, I HAVE noticed that by concentrating on my ab and core work as soon as I get to the gym, instead of waiting until the end like I used to do, I have a lot more energy and excitement about ab work. And with this new eating plan I'm on that's lost me not one pound, my pants and t-shirts fit so cool because of the concentrated effort on abs and core.
So I guess what the yoga and fitness folks say is true... a little bit of core and abs work can make all the difference.
