Oh Dear, What Have I done??


Friday 30 May, 2014 by Uncle Spike


ABS is a braking system, isn’t it? But for some rather strange and unknown reason, Uncle Spike ‘volunteered’ to join a Facebook Group of former work colleagues doing an ABS challenge. I think I read it wrong; they were talking about a 30 Day Ab Challenge Programme!!

Now call me brave, mad or stoopid, but hey, love a challenge I guess 🙂

My spare tyre comes and goes (I blame yummy Turkish bread that is baked in wood-fired brick ovens), but my feet and my eyes are parting company on occasion I’ve found, so me thinks that half-century looming or not, this old camel needs a bit of trimming up (or should that be down?).

I really have no idea what these exercises are, so I’ll have to check that out, but I already said YES – nutter!!

But I reckon that if I can fast during Ramadan every year during our long hot summers, then I must be stubborn enough to give this a fair crack of the whip 😀

Watch this space…

    Holy Crap on a Stick …. did you see what Day 30 looks like?!!!!!
    I think I need to go lie down. I might be a runner, hiker, cyclist, swimmer …. but core work makes me cry.
    Good luck – I’ll be cheering you on from over here in the shade on the sidelines 🙂

    I hope you didn’t volunteer to be a “crash dummy” Spike 🙂

    I don’t believe there is better exercise than shifting rocks and general duties about the ranch requiring muscle power, Uncle Spike.


  7. I did see this on Facebook, I wasn’t too sure, but you have inspired me, it’s only 30 days right, how hard can it be? Lol good luck.
