This morning felt really great. The feeling that my team had reached and completed an entire week of dieting and exercising was really satisfying. What I felt? Gratitude and pride. Like, I did this! I helped my team go a full week, wow!

It’s really empowering to know that someone out there will achieve some of her health and fitness goals because of me. Yes, empowered women empower women!! That’s it. Empower your sisters, aunties, girlfriends, mothers and all women out there.

The beauty about helping a woman is, she’ll teach some of what she has learn to someone else. “Educate a woman, educate a nation,” they said. They didn’t lie.

So today was also another power abs day.

Still going with Wheres Sinead’s exercises below:

1.Rolling planks x20 -3

2. Sit up to twists x20 -3

3. Glute bridge leg raises x20 -3

4. Slow extensions x20 -3

5. Weighted alternate leg raises x20 -3

6. Weighted leg raise x20 -3

7. Plank Jacks x20 -3

8. Downward dog crunches(10 each side) x20 -3

9. Visit Marches x20 -3

Note: The 3 at the end of each exercise represents the number of sets and the 20s represents repeats.

Our meal plan:

⁃ Two glasses of lukewarm lemon/turmeric water before breakfast

⁃ Breakfast: Any whole wheat cereal(use plain yoghurt to taste) or 250ml of plain yoghurt

⁃ Lunch: 4 steamed Irish potatoes + 1 cucumber

⁃ Dinner: 250ml plain yogurt + 1 banana

⁃ Team members are encouraged to eat a fruit between meals if they feel super hungry

⁃ Taking a glass of water every two hours

I can’t fully express the joy I’m feeling. This whole challenge started as a joke but here we are. One week down, three more to go. I’m so proud of my team. I’ve come to know them and understand their personalities, weaknesses and challenges.

I’m so happy to be a part of their fitness journey. I can’t wait to see all of us achieve bigger health and fitness milestones.

You can keep up with the challenge on social media using the hashtag #28dayworkoutchallenge.
