How To Get Your Belly Back After Baby – November Plank Challenge

NOVEMBER PLANK CHALLENGE

Everyone wants the secret to awesome abs and I am happy to share it, it’s ‘not doing sit ups’. Yup. That’s it, secret’s out. Ditch sit ups and replace with planks and I have a plan for you to build up your core strength one day at a time. This is for beginners and Mumma’s wanting their body back, this is a great place to start. If you are not a beginner you can still chuck this on the end of your daily workout as you too can benefit from this by focusing on your form.howtoplank

HOW TO PLANK

#1 Push the balls of your feet into the floor to activate your legs

#2 Squeeze your butt

#3 Brace your core, feel it contracting 360 around your body

#4 Don’t hold the tension in your neck just gaze down in front of you

#5 Shoulders should sit naturally over elbows

See all that, legs, butt, shoulders,  360 core so much more than a sit up. It is using lots of your body so it will be difficult at first and you will get the shakes, this means it’s working. How to plank for longer and get stronger at the same time, by doing a little each day. 20 seconds sounds like nothing but it will work you especially if you are new to this. We will start at 20 seconds today and you can see how we work our way up to 2 minutes using my guide below.

I want you to save this plank challenge as your desktop background so it’s the first thing you see when you sit on your butt to look at Facebook etc. I want it to be in your face reminding you to do it. It starts off realisably easy as I am being very realistic here, we are starting from the beginning and we will work up to a 2 minute plank by the end of November. I will give you the tools you just have to do the work, so get down on the floor and plank for 20 seconds already.

Healthy Oatmeal & Coconut Biscuits

Looking for more clean snack ideas today I have put these little babies together. So simple and so yummy without dairy and sugar, shut up right!!cookies

You Will Need:

1 Ripe Banana

Dash of Cinnamon

2 Cups of Oats

1/2 Cup of Shredded Coconut

1/4 Cup of Coconut oil

I just chucked all this in the mixer then added a splash of boiled water just to make the mix stick and soften the oats a bit. I made some cookie type bite sized blobs but you I also made what will become bar size snacks too. Cook at 150c for 15-20 minutes depending if you want them soft or hard.

So easy, and such a clean snack. You can get creative and add anything you want like nuts, dried fruit, cocoa powder, LSA anything.  I didn’t get to take an shot of them cooked as they all got snatched up by everyone so that is a pretty good reivew right there.
