I Guess I'll Be Planking In The SummerTime - 4Ms

It might seem that I'm small but I really do have a pooch and it's not a little thing either and I think it adds much to my pounds.

It has found home since the birth of my children and I have not treated it with much contempt :) See I want to get pregnant again a few times and figured I'd just exercise and try but not just beat it away, after all, it's going to stretch again.

We've been trying, but it's taking awhile and so I might as well just live and get rid of this pooch.

So I'll be planking :)

Hold me accountable y'all.

Its time for the Plank You Very Much Challenge!  For May, lets try an isometric exercise to tighten your core that you can do just about anywhere (and people do). The plank exercise helps strengthen midsection, upper-body and lower-body muscles along the front of your body. Planks also strengthen the inner core muscles that support your joints. The rules are simple, you must follow the three week schedule exactly and while you plank, you must keep a smile on your face the entire time. Plank You Very Much!

I found the challenge here.

Are you exercising?
Do you stay home? Go to the gym? or walk around the neighborhood?

Welcome to today's music.  I hope Monday find you with a smile and music to begin your week with light steps. 
I'm always coming to visit everyone on the linky so don't worry if I'm a bit late!

      Heatwave is coming our way too. It's bad when it's bad.

  3. Great challenge you've put out there for us. I would love to get into the groove & join you on this, but I'm having some really bad problems currently with my stomach and I can't do my usual routine. I hope to get a handle on this quickly. Best of luck to you!

    Love your fun, upbeat 4M pick. I was boogying right along to the tune. It always great to dance with you, dearie!

    1. Ahh Cathy, I hope you will get a handle on things and be healed quickly. I know it's no fun at all with ill health.

      Thank you and have a great week :)
