Some New Exercises: Health & Fitness Friday {February 22, 2013}

I'm glad to finally be back linking up with Jen for today's Health & Fitness Friday!

After having to take a little time off, it feels great to be back in my regular exercise routine!

I also had a healthy eating week.  With the exception of Zaxby's one night, Chickfila another and some eggos for breakfast one day, I ate clean all week.  I've also only been drinking water with an occasional {sugarless} coffee.

I've also found a lot of healthy, clean recipes and I'm looking forward to trying them out next week.

With swimsuit season right around the corner, I really want to work on defining my abs more.  While I do a lot of core work, I want to add in some more exercises specifically targeting my abs.  I found this workout from Women's Health Magazine on Pinterest yesterday and plan to start it.  

I'm also going to do this one:

Have you found any other good workouts to do to make sure you're bikini ready?

YAY!!!!!! I am so happy to have you back girlfriend!!! it looks like you had a fabulous health and fitness week. And thank you so much for linking those pinterest workouts. Both areas need some tuning up for me and as soon as I am done with Ripped in 30, I am totally going to add them to the mix :-) Be sure to share those clean recipes when you make them!!!

Do you drink your coffee black? I can't do that. I use the coffee mate natural bliss. Only a tablespoon. I need to do those rump exercises. That's probably the body part that bothers me the most. I have a big backside unfortunately.
