Day 3 of The ABsolutely FABulous Challenge

ABsolutely FABulous 
14 Day Challenge 

14 days worth of Ab Workouts, Healthy Habits & Positive Thinking

Day 3

JackKnife 1

Jack Knife 2

Ab Challenge:  Meet Jack Knifes.  They are ABsolutely one of my favorite ab exercises.  I forgot about them until I went to an abs class at the gym the other night and our instructor had us do them.  They hurt the next a good way.  Enjoy!

Do 4 sets of 12.

Healthy Habit Challenge:  Only eat foods today that are not processed, boxed up or pre made.  This one is a bit hard for me because  it requires a little planning and more time in the kitchen.  My food for the day will likely be eggs for breakfast, salad for lunch & fish with veggies for dinner.

Positive Thinking Challenge:  Give compliments!  To strangers, friends, co-workers......whoever.  The other day someone stopped me on the street and told me they loved my hair.  It was so random but felt SO GOOD.  I feel the same way when someone leaves a comment on my blog.  Warm fuzzies.  I love that.

I'm giving one of my compliments virtually to my friend Carolyn below.

Carolyn - You are one of the most interesting and and inspiring people I know.  5 minutes after meeting you I knew you I wanted to become your life long friend!  



  1. Oh my goodness yes they do!! We just did this last weekend with a super set time do the jack knife and then a push up....we almost vimitted haha Love you sarah! We should also workout when I come out there!!!

  2. I pretty much have our whole agenda planned for when you get here. Working out is for sure on there. You are coming to my spin class.....YAY.


  3. YESSSS Jack Knifes! You've inspired me- I'm off to do some right now! :)

    P.S. Your blog is beautiful!

  4. Keelie- You are beautiful! Thanks for the sweet message. Have fun doing the Jack Knifes!

  5. Hi Sarah! What *nice* pictures of your jack knives. I think a stability ball under me looks a little less stable!

    I am a random compliment-er. Most people love that, a few think I'm kooky for that. Women need to give women compliments, especially about hair and clothes, etc..., because many husbands and and other family members really don't compliment that much.
