Flat Abs

Okay. Okay. I get it. You want flat abs! When I sent out my survey, I got tons of responses asking for a quick workout to get those abs flat once and for all. You got it!

To really get those abs tight, you’ll also need to watch what you eat. I know you’ve heard it a million times before, but it’s true. Here’s a sample flat abs day of food:

Breakfast: Scramble 2 eggs and a handful of baby spinach in cooking spray. Top with 1/4 cup black beans, 1 tablespoon salsa, 1 tablespoon 2% Greek yogurt, and 2 tablespoons crumbled feta or blue cheese. Serve with 1/2 cup blueberries.

Lunch: 2 cups mixed greens topped with 3 ounces skinless roasted chicken breast, 2 tablespoons raisins, 2 tablespoons crumbled feta or blue cheese, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar. For dessert, have 1/2 cup sliced strawberries and 1/2 ounce of dark chocolate.

Snack: 7-ounce container of 2% Greek yogurt mixed with 1 teaspoon honey or agave and 1/2 cup blueberries

Dinner: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet. Add 1/2 cup parsley and 1/4 cup diced bell peppers and cook until peppers are soft and parsley is wilted. Add 6 ounces shrimp and cook until pink. Stir in 1 cup cooked pasta and top with 2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese.

Snack: 1 glass of wine with 1/2 ounce of dark chocolate

Stick with your workouts and healthy food choices for about a month and your abs will be flatter than ever. Take some before pictures so you can celebrate how far you’ve come at the end of the month!
