This is the first of a series of blogs that will take us on Mary’s journey to achieving her goal of getting 6-pack abs. From her training to her nutrition find out exactly what it takes to get those chiseled abs!
In two short months, I will be turning 36, which in my mind is like almost 40!?!
You know what’s even crazier??? I have decided to see if I can get 6-pack abs in those two months.
My goal isn’t about being superficial and trying to get model-like abs, but rather making a commitment to achieve something I haven’t.
A commitment to training harder and eating stricter. A commitment to achieve a goal I have never really attempted. I am hoping it will make my move towards 40 easier.
Honestly, I never really thought a 6-pack would look good on me…or maybe I just didn’t want to put in the sacrifices needed to getting abs. Who knows if I even have a 6-pack under there anyways? I have never seen it and four pregnancies later, not sure if it will…but I will try my hardest to find it!
WILL DIET REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE
During this challenge, my hope is that I can show you how important a diet is to getting desired results. But, I also want to remind everyone not to lose sight of what’s important which is exercising regularly and eating healthy.
I don’t think having model type abs is the norm and I have never lived up to the pictures of fitness models ever in my life. Being in this industry, sometimes I feel like I am not good enough. But, then I remember everything I have overcome in my fitness journey to get me to where I am.
60 DAYS TO ABS
I will be blogging about the gains and pains during this journey and try to be as brutally honest as I can in the process to achieve this. I will also decide if this is a lifestyle change I am willing to make.
You have heard the saying that abs are made in the kitchen, well… 80% in the kitchen and 20% in the gym. I am going to try and prove that it’s true.
#FindYourStrength and Be Committed
To continue on Mary’s journey…
“I write blogs about my accomplishments, my failures, my doubts, my goals, and my inspiration. But, it’s really not about me. It’s about real life and the challenges we each face and continuing to find your strength along the way. I want to inspire people, but I also want them to see the real me. I am just a normal person trying to do the best I can with what I was given. This is my journey and you have yours. Nobody is perfect…all the time. We all suck at things.” -Mary Sheckler
