Lunch Without a Sandwich - Day 4 "30 Day Plank Challenge"

Thank you so much for doing the 30 Day Plank Challenge with me! It was meant to help get my butt up off the couch and try to help strengthen my core, but it has turned into this sea of support for one another.
Doing that first plank was TOUGH! My legs were shaking and my arms were about to give out from under me, but I kept going!
YOU HAVE INSPIRED ME TO DO MORE! So again, thank YOU so much for doing this challenge with me!
My plank last night was not easy either. Those 30 seconds felt like an hour! But I got online and saw where many of you were doing your planks and holding them longer, so I got back up and did another set. The second time I held it for 1 minute and :15 seconds! I'm 1/5 of the way to the 5 minute goal!
This is NOT a contest though! Only do what YOU can do. It's a personal challenge, and I am here to help support you through it. So be careful, be safe, and don't hurt yourself. :)
If you haven't started the challenge yet, will you join us? It's super easy! Here is the chart to follow along, and you can start at ANY time! You just need a spare 20 seconds!
To go along with my planks, I'm paying close attention to my diet! Last night, I made my own homemade lunchables for me and my boyfriend.
They are super easy to make, and you can put ANY thing you like best in them!
I'll be checking in with you later tonight to see if you have done your planks! Plus I will let you know how mine go. Wish me luck! This is tough, but with support I think we can all feel healthier and happier!

Citing Ty Herndon as inspiration yesterday... Billy Gillman filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. He is also gay.
Billy claims the fact that he is gay has kept him from signing a major record deal. If that's true, that is sad and...
Ty Herndon has come out of the closet! Read the entire story from People Magazine HERE.
Here's a couple of my favorite Ty Herndon songs from the 90's:
Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
Meghan Trainor (who sings "All About That Bass") steps up to the mic and belts out an AWESOME version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"! This is addicting! Check it out.
