19 day abs challenge - WANNA JOIN??? // ft. MY ADORB LITTLE SIS also im sick again

I'm just the type of person who is always up for a challenge -- mainly to prove to myself that I CAN DO IT.  (like uhm...remember the no sugar challenge?) this is bc I'm a highly competitive person. then I saw this 30 day abs challenge and was like yessssssss I'm gonna try this. 

I wanted to test my own strength, endurance, but also the idea of having a set amount laid out for my in a daily form was doable to me - something I could tackle. I just completed 19 days yesterday. Yes, guys, I did 85 sit ups, 120 crunches, 50 leg rises, and a 75 second plank. *dies bc omw that plank* 

BUT YOU SEE. I did it. I was sure that I could never complete a 1 minute and 15 second long plank bc WHOA THATS REALLY LONG K. but i did it. which totally means that you can too!!! 

I noticed that the last few days have been a struggle for me..not sure if it's bc I'm sick again for the 2nd time in like 3 weeks, or that it's just getting too hard? So, that's why the challenge has been cut down to 19 days. It's what I've completed and recommend. xD

I even got my dad to do this *laughs* It's really fun to yank my yoga mat onto the floor and be like "daaaaaaaddddd it's time for your exercises" #imdaughtergoalsk

tho often I'm like *points down* 



And yes, I've found myself being like NO I DONT WANNA DO THIS. but I have to. It was a struggle at first to complete the sit ups, and now? they're a breeze. I think the best part is about this, is the slow but sure progress that you make. It's way better than trying to speed through something. Results don't happen that way. 

also GO LOOK ALIYAH INTERVIEWED SARE AND ME. like it was a live one hahahaa #watchoutforcraziness -- so like, go follow her bc her photography is amazing and plus SHE'S JUST A DOLL <333

and yes, I'm aware that my little sister is so adorable. GUYS I SHOWED HER HOW TO DO A PLANK AND SHE CAN DO IT. like. wow. advanced kid.

did ya follow Aliyah's blog??

  1. Congratulations! Is it the best feeling or WHAT when you complete something?! No matter what it is. :D
    Oh my goodness gracious I just got sick, too! XD I'm a lot better now, but I had JUST gotten sick like, two weeks before so that was mortifying. *Groans because I'm going to have to start doing the dishes again* Lol

    1. YES. I actually don't mind the sit ups - it's the planks that are killing me. Crunches are hard too - but if I do them in like 10-15 set increments, I can do it. and SAME

  3. Hehe, everyone calls me the muscle lady in our house, just to randomly let you know lol! I do a lot of gymnastic stuff. And I'm always up to a challenge! I'm doing 5 push ups a day, and 10 whatever they're called where you lay down and lift your legs straight up then down a couple inches from the floor, and up again-those things.. *deep breath* so yeah-i already do abs! =)
    Awe, she's cute! My little sis loves "working out" with me and my other sis! How many siblings do you have?
    I'm off to finish math-*sigh* *whaps math* -and then do dishes. :( (but then I'll eat chocolate, so I'll be fine!)

    1. hahaa! I love randomness and I also love nicknames - so win-win. ;) oh wow that sounds like fun and hard work! and aren't challenges the best thing ever?
      awwwwww that's the sweetest! I've never really done it before bc I tend to do my exercises later at night. also, sorry, I don't put that kind of info out ;P
      hahhaa nothing like math and dishes BUT YES CHOCOLATE. how about ice cream tho? yes yes yes yes

    2. Haha, yes, I would've ate ice cream [cause it's the best thing that happened to the world] but we didn't have any. *sobs at the awful memory* I ate ice cream tonight tho, cause we kinda have a habit now.😕

  4. Woohoo good job!

    Okay so I'm the sort of person where if you give me a dare, I will most likely do it or kill myself trying. At the beginning of this year my sisters, knowing me so well as they do, dared me to learn/be able to do 100 push ups in a row within six months. SO OF COURSE I SAID OKAY.
    So I've been doing some insane sort of push up challenge thing and it actually is kinda working?? I mean, at the beginning I could /just/ do 15 push ups in a row, now I can do 35 so I'm quite pleased about that. *nods*
