50-5 Abs Countdown & Healthy Blogger “Oops”!

How’s this for a little Monday motivation?


I know I’m a little behind the times, but I’ve been meaning to post this for a couple of weeks now, ever since Ashton Kutcher’s much talked about speech at the Teen Choice Awards.  Such a great message.  I think sometimes it’s easy to focus on how we look on the outside and we lose sight of what is really important. Anytime you doubt yourself just remember, you are amazing and everything else “is crap”. 🙂

On the agenda today was a trip to Trader Joe’s for a few essentials.  One of those essentials included Greek yogurt.  I was in a bit of a hurry so I just grabbed the only flavored container I saw and went on my merry little way.  Then when I got home, I realized that I committed a big healthy living blogger/fitness junkie FAIL.  I didn’t check the nutrition facts (what?!) and what I came home with was a liiiittle higher in the calories and fat content than what I’m used to.  And by a little, I mean a lot.  I know what you are thinking, “C’mon Christa, this isn’t your first rodeo!”. One cup of this stuff contains 290 calories and 17 grams of fat!  A little too rich for my blood…lesson learned.  It’s also a reminder that yogurt cups and parfaits at most restaurants and fast food places can be a little deceiving, especially when you add in high calorie granola, nuts, etc.  I love myself some TJ’s, but note to self: leave this one on the shelf next time.

I’m coming to you this Monday with another all-out-all-abs workout.  All abs, all the time. 🙂  I always incorporate at least a few ab exercises throughout my circuit workouts, but sometimes it feels good to just focus and burn ’em out.
