Get Fit, Stay Fab : A weekly fitness link up

Welcome back Everyone.
I hope you've had a productive week.
I have been celebrating and researching all week.

First I'll share the celebration.
Last year in January 2013 me, my mom and sister took measurements of our hips, waist and bust.
We had started to follow Operation Transformation and we wanted to see if there was any change after all our work.
Fast forward 6 months and we totally forgot about the measurements.
It wasn't until this past weekend that we remembered them.
My daughter had her tiny measuring tape and was checking how big everyone was.
Then we remembered, found the old ones and compared them.
I was shocked.
I knew I had toned up a bit but nothing like this.
I have lost 4 inches of my waist and 4.5 off my hips.
That is such an amazing feeling.
It's like finding a €10 in the pocket of an old pair of jeans.
It has really motivated me to keep going.
I wasn't doing a whole pile to loose those inches but can you imagine the results if I really pushed myself.

So I started the research to find something that I can do at home or at the gym.
Something that I can do even when the kids are with me.
Something that was easy to follow and doable.

I came across Sadie on instagram.
This is the photo that caught my attention.
Yes that is the same woman.
Amazing, right?
So after a little blog stalking, I realized that she has been doing Crossfit for year and was after starting a 6 week at home Crossfit workout.
The workout is for all us busy moms that can't find time to workout.
Well I'm going to MAKE time to do this.

I'm late to the game, as usual, but I'm looking forward to doing this program.
There are a few posts of Sadies that I think you should all read before you do the program.

Make sure you have a look around her blog. She talks about her AT HOME CROSSFIT GYM and her PALEO diet. She even has a HEALTH AND FITNESS QUESTIONS ANSWERED post.

Here is the first week of the program. Click here for the full post.

I'm still doing the ab challenge and i'm starting to feel the burn now.
I'm getting kind of bored of it though.
I'm going to stick with it and start Sadie's workout today too and see how I go.
If you want to see what the ab challenge is check out last weeks post.

I hope you'll come along with me on this journey with me.
We're all just trying to find time and support to get back to where we once were.

We CAN do it!!
Don't forget to use the #getfitstayfab4life on instagram if you're posting workout/progress photos.
