Four days ago, on Monday morning, I resolved to do something to reduce my weight.
No! I am not overweight, at least not at 74kg in full Hijab and Niqab!!!!
After three straight days of abdominal crunches and sit-ups, my upper abdominal muscles are in a riot!!!
Actually, the plan was a four-day a week routine – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday: sit-ups twice with an assortment of crunches.
As today is Eid, I performed Thursday’s routine on Wednesday.
It has been fun so far, even the occasional “ah uh” on bending.
Mundane acts such as standing from a sitting position or going into a prone posture [back down first] have become life-threatening!!!!! Serious laughter!!
