  • @carrieandtim good eyes! Every fifth day is a rest day, so I'm assuming we take it off? I never would have noticed.

    I'm glad so many of us are doing this!

  • I'm in! I need to get rid of this dang belly fat! My jeans fit but the are not comfy with all the excess. I'm thinking about doing the no sugar thing too. I have a sugar addiction and since I can't tolerate pop any more might as well keep goin with it. :)

    Ok, so it's May 1st and although I didn't respond to the initial invite after being up all night (not LO's related) I decided to do this..... Holy shit were the leg drops hard. If like to blame it on carrying twins, and csection but I was obese and very out of shape before this. Since having the twins I'm down 43lbs, and 23lbs total before pre pregnancy! I'm finally motivated to do something about it!

  • Eeek, that was no joke! I thought, 10 leg drops, no big deal. I did 7 and then had to rest before doing the remaining 3. I feel good though, it's nice to get moving. I'm also doing to throw in the squat challenge. Hopefully I can keep up!
  • Phew- just did the muffin top and squats workouts. Ugh, leg drops are rough and I've always been bad at squats. I had to take quick rests during the squats - definitely didn't do them all steady and back to back. Looking forward to results.

  • I'm in!!! :) this is a great idea.

    @mrsdahamm‌ I had a c/s too and leg drops felt weird but actually didn't hurt! It just felt like a strange tugging at my absentee ab muscles!
  •     
  • Alright I did it. Honestly I wasn't going to til I started reading that you guys have already. I'm just not sure I'm doing the elbow exercise right. Am I supposed to touch my knee with my elbow, cause that's far from happening. The leg drop was no joke & laying on the floor hurts my tailbone. I guess that's enough complaining.

  • @jazzyexpo‌ I googled a video and it looks like you just go "toward" the knee and not actually "to" it
  • @clo1982‌ I'm 13 weeks pp now so I'm hoping it doesn't hurt anymore. I haven't done mine yet bc I worked then DH and I went out to dinner and walked the mall with LO. Now he's sleeping but keeps waking up so I'm waiting til h can take him.
  •     
  • Update: managed to do the abs while he slept. Now I'm gonna eat a snickers dq blizzard lol then I'll do my squats

  • Successfully completed the muffin top and squat challenge. I had to wait for DH to get home to do the ab stuff, because LO wanted to be constantly held and feed today, but I got it done!

  • I'll do it too!  I finally fit into my pre-pregnancy pants and can even button/zip them up!  But I could never go out in public with that muffin top hanging over!

  •     
  • Day two done! My lower abs are burning from the leg drops.

    Should I start a separate main check in thread or do you guys want to check in here?

    Accountability people! Don't make me tag you all to make you feel guilty!

  • I think a separate thread would be better for checking in. I did mine this morning again, I was surprised how sore I am from yesterday. I love it! My upper abs hurt, not sure why.
  •     
  • I'm in. I missed two days, but I'll catch up b

    For those (like me) struggling with the leg lifts, you can modify it by putting your hands under your butt.
