Started an abs and booty TABATA style challenge 30 days ago.

I have only been working out (and trying to get healthy) for about 19 months now and thrilled with how far I have come. Lost (52 totally lbs from my highest weight) and 40 in the last 19 months.... With the help of crossfit, running and paleo style eating.

Lost 5.2 lbs during the month of August and I did 8 to 12 mins a day devoted to this challenge. (Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday = abs) (Monday/Wednesday/Friday = booty) I am really happy with the results and plan to continue this workout addition for another 100 days. Take some after pics in another 100 days. :)

Below are before and after .... 30 days!

    it is amazing to me how in the first before photos you look like you're at goal and couldn't be any smaller. Then in the after photos you are so much smaller and the shape of your torso is so different. Incredible what exercise will do. you look fantastic.

    Thanks guys. I wasn't sure if it was working in appearance but my abs and booty was definitely tighter feeling. This is why I love pictures!

    This week I am easing up on my strictness and enjoying a few luxurious and starting another 100 day challenge with new goals (including continuing the TABATA for abs/booty).... Working on the rest of the goals too. By my 36 birthday in December I should have reached all my long term goals! Atleast that is the plan.

    No there was no video. tabata is a style of working out. 20 seconds of work and ten seconds of work .... 8 times. So one round is only 4 mins. Google it and you can get an idea. I picked my own four exercises to do TABATA style and every so often I would try out a new one. It kept it fresh.

    HOLY COW!!!! You had an amazing month. You look amazing! I just can't put another exclamation mark anywhere...!!!! There I did it :-P. Once again you are an inspiration (as if you ever stopped being so.) Time for my 30 day challenge. I have exactly 32 days until my half marathon. Time to see what I ca accomplish. No more complaining, no more procrastinating, no more excuses. You have kicked my butt into gear again. THANK YOU!

    I mean this in a kind way...you are absolutely beautiful. You were before, but now just differently so. Your before and after pictures are awesome, and I have done the same. I never did post mine out of fear. Time to kick the next 30 days A*$ and post some pics.

    I am so proud of you! (Last exclamation mark, promise)

    This is awesome! I am currently doing a 30 Day Squat challenge (I'm on Day 16) and was thinking about doing the Ab & Squat challenge for my next challenge. This has definitely motivated me to do that!
  • Wow, looking good.
