ABSolutely Committed Blog #1

By Mary Sheckler

“In two short months I will be turning 36, which in my mind is like almost 40!?! Crazy.

You know what’s even crazier??? I have decided to get a 6-pack. I am not talking about drinking. 

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. Commitment to training harder commitment to eating stricter and a commitment to achieve a goal I have never really attempted. And, timing-wise, it will make my move towards 40 easier, right?  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!

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 – 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.

So, I have 60 days. During that time, I will be sharing my meal plan, which is specific for me and also be sharing my workout plans. I will be blogging about the gains and pains during this journey and I will be brutally honest on 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 prove that it’s true.”
