Abs of steel contest

Me and Susan are having a 6 pack contest. Basically if you want to join us (which I encourage you to do so) post a before picture this week. In 30 days (approximately April 11) we will have a revealing. Everyone will get a finisher's medal and there may be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize, also a MOST IMPROVED award. Write on my wall if you want to be included. Great motivation for bikini season folks..(or in our mind...running in sports bra). No guys allowed (sorry guys...much too easy for you to achieve 6 pack status). Heres my befores... I took two. Obviously one had been after I was studying..you can see the crease lines from bending over staring at the books. The other one I took this morning....nice leopard sports bra eh? haha.

I think you have fantastic abs already! That is a great contest though. I can't join cause list o' excuses starting with 30 days I could barely get 1 roll off in that time. LOL! Now, road map abs that I could win :-O Good luck to you, I bet you are going to have a serious 6 pack chickie :-)
supah cute sports bra

Jamie said...

Too easy to get 6 pack status?! I call BS. Or am I just a slacker and am ignoring some genetic abilities I was previously unaware of?

Hmm..

Well I'm competing in my OWN contest, WITHOUT you stupid girls. :-P

Jess said...

I agree with Viv. You already have good abs. And I run in a sports bra year round -- I stopped caring what that looked like long ago. It's hot here. All the time.

Marcy said...

ROFLMAO my abs were shot after I dropped my first kid. I say you already have nice abs :-)

Sarah said...

I'm agreeing - your abs look pretty good already!

And I'll join in this! I need a reason to get my stomach in shape!! (But can I give you my before picture after the 30 days...because it is seriously embarrassing right now!) : )

jahowie said...

You just made me drop my pen!! Wow!! You'll be hard to beat!!

My Life & Running said...

First... where did you find that sports bra?!?

And second... yeah, I don't compete with people like you... already tan and with at least a 3 pack going on there.... phsss. ;)

I'm with Jamie on this one.. I am proud of my abs, but I have had to work REALLY hard to get 'em. Maybe we will start our own GUYS ONLY abs contest and it will be really cool... OK maybe not so much.

Doug said...

I think you're starting a gender war here, Christine, because I'm with Bill and Jamie.

We might have to start our own contest, and make it ten times more fun! Maybe we'll give away free stuff, and maybe I'll talk Bill into buying it!

Seriously though, good idea. Competition will definitely make you bust your abs harder than you would otherwise. Good luck!

Vanilla said...

I'm with Jamie and Bill, I don't think it's easier for guys because that would make me a slacker for not having a 6-pack already. I'm going to participate in your contest on my own. Kind of like a silent protest. :)

Susan Oseen said...

Darn, Girl!!! I really am going to have to work hard now. Maybe you should give me 2 weeks extra just so I can catch up to your starting position.
I'd love to blame the kids for my stomach right now, but I think realistically it's probably all the Boston Cream donuts and other goodness. Okay...April 11th..I can do it!!! Are you going to post new pics every week or just at the end of the 30 days?

Christine said...

hey guys!!! no hard feelings! I encourage you to start your own contest...and also google men and women's body fat to see my point. Its harder for women to get their body fat low enough to actually expose the finals muscles in a 6 pack. The real reason is Im terrified of your fierce competition! However I'm looking forward to seeing all your washboard stomachs at the end!

Trevor Oseen said...

I think your guys' gig is great as that means I get to hang out with a six packed wife...

Benson said...

You're already making me look bad. I'm still looking for my one-pack.
Good luck ladies. Chix with six = Awesome.

Cara said...

Holy moly, what are you improving on?

Paul said...

I'd say you're gonna win this one. You're already there!

Laura said...

I'm with everyone who says... what are you improving upon? Seriously, if my tummy looked like that, I'd be eating ice cream every day without a care. (Maybe that is why my abs are in their current state).

Christine said...

Well..the problem is...I eat CRAP! LIke today...I just ate cake..and the frozen pizza is in the oven. So were gonna see what happens when I buckle down and eat properly (starting tomorrow)...and also I'm going to add in core training which I never do. Hopefully the end result is a six pack, which would be an improvement over this.

RunnerGirl said...

I can't wait until its warm enough to run in a sports bra again! Good luck with the contest, I think you're well on your way girl!

Brian said...

Is surgery allowed? What about an 8 pack if you add my love handles? Yes females by the book have more body fat but it's still tough for guys. We also like to eat and drink.

Flatman said...

^yeah that!

Kim said...

um, what more of an improvement can you make? not fair. hmpf.

Stef said...

Great contest! I will decide on Saturday whether I will enter. If I have a good photo at the finish of my race (depending on what top I decide to wear) I will post a photo. Yeah I know that's a lot of ifs but hey, I'm a girl so there ya go . . . . :-)

jkrunning said...

My abs are not fit to be photographed so I'm going to have to sit this one out.

But where did you get that sports bra? I need one.

Ted said...

Did you actually suck in your breath in order to tuck in your abs??? Cheating???
