Time To Tackle My Belly Fat: New 30-Day Challenge Is Here!

September brings a new 30-Day Challenge. This time I'm zeroing in on my belly fat with a month long focus on my abs.

September brings a new 30-Day Challenge. This time I’m zeroing in on my belly fat with a month-long focus on my abs.

I wrapped up my 30-Day Flabby Arm Challenge at the end of August and now I’m on to my next monthly challenge. The loose skin around my belly is still upsetting me so I decided that September is the month to work on my abs.

The 30-Day Abs Challenge calls for sit ups, crunches, leg raises and the dreaded plank. I’m really excited about this challenge, as the plank is one of my least favorite exercises. I’ve avoided the position as much as possible.

However, with all the upper bodywork I’ve done, I expect to do OK. I’m on Day 3 of the challenge and my plank has held up nicely. Of course I don’t expect this to last. Holding a plank for 15 seconds is much different from holding the position for 1 minute (or 2 minutes by the end of the challenge).

This should make my trainer happy as she loves crunches, sit-ups and leg raises. I normally do 30-45 of each during our sessions. So I’m really expecting the challenge to get tough by Day 9.

If you’re interested in doing this or other 30-Day Challenges, check out 30-Day Fitness Challenges. There you’ll find arm, leg, core and strength challenges, plus video showing you how to properly do the exercises.

    Did you lose any inches from your arms? Mine are bat wings, but I’m thinking of trying the arm challenge.

    • I haven’t had time to take my measurements since doing my arm challenge. I’m planning to at the end of September. But I’ve lost inches off my arms the last few months. Sadly, you can’t zero in on any body part to lose weight. All I can do is work to build muscle (which might show an increase in arm size) and tone.

  4. Thanks for inspiring! Going to go check out your routines 😉 Baby steps for me though.
