Core Ab Moves


We don't own a scale. Every once in awhile, I'm sort of curious, but not curious enough to actually go out and buy a scale. I think if we did have a scale, I'd be too fascinated by it, and I'd probably be on it all of the time, which would drive me nuts.

Instead of having a scale, I feel like if my pants fit, I'm in business.

My pants DO fit, but after having two kids, I think things have shifted. Shifted into sort of a fanny pack position in the front. And I HATE FANNY PACKS.
