Four weeks from today my family and I will be sailing off on a Disney Cruise. Between now and then join me in the challenge to uncover your abs. As we have discussed recently, the main factors are moving more and eating right. For the next 4 weeks I challenge you to add the following to your routine:
1. Complete my 10 minute ab program (LRWOC #52 Core Buuuurner) three (nonconsecutive) days per week. Strengthening the core muscles will help the definition and are good for overall health and fitness.
2. Drink water: 2/3 of an ounce for every pound of body weight every day. Roughly 2/3 of your body is made up of water! Drink enough water every day will help keep your muscles and skin toned, assists in weight loss, transports oxygen and nutrients to cells, eliminates toxins and wastes from the body, and regulates body temperature.
3. Consume 30g of fiber every day. Recent studies showed that increasing your daily fiber intake by 5g (from the recommended 25g to 30 for women) can result in the same amount of weight loss as a very specific diet plan prescribed by the American Heart Association.
*The water and fiber together will keep your digestive track well-regulated and reduce
bloating. However, if you aren't used to a higher fiber diet, it might have the adverse effect for the first few days. Hang in there!

Download the challenge checklist and hang it somewhere as a reminder. Check off your water and fiber each day and your 3 workouts a week to track your progress.
