It Starts Tomorrow

The 30 Day Challenge to myself and for those that are going to join me will start tomorrow (Monday).

To refresh your memory the challenge is to for the month of November to do 30 of each of these exercises....crunches, reverse crunches, bicycle crunch, abdominal twist, tricep kick back, hammer curls and tricep dips using whatever size of weights you are comfortable using.

Each of these exercises will tone and strengthen either the tummy or arms.

Who doesn't want rock hard abs and lean, toned arms??? I know I want them!!!

I placed links on this post for proper form for each of these exercises if you want to check them out.

On another note my husband and I were discussing my lack of motivation to exercise lately and we came up with a great idea that I know will make me want to get in a workout daily.
My husband is also going to 'pay' me $5.00 for each day that I do at least a 20 minute workout starting today until he is done work!! That could translate into about $50.00. I will then use that money to buy a couple of new books or a subscription to a magazine.

Guess who got a workout in this morning?!?!? lol
Its all about the pay off!

    I wanted to say thank you too for all of your wonderful comments, encouragement and support on my blog. I didn't even realize that you had been commenting on the blog until last night.
