The 30 day flat abs challenge

Since I started my journey with my gym and healthy lifestyle many people have been messaging and asking me for tips on how to get a flat tummy or to at least lose the belly fat they have. I have decided to write this blog so as to share my tips on how I lost my belly fat and got my “flat tummy” that I have been raving to everyone about.

Let me just put it out there that it is not an easy task, it requires discipline as well as dedication. We all know that nothing worth having comes easy and if one wants the results they will have to do the work.

I decided to take the “30 Day Flat Abs Challenge”, not with the intention of really having abs but just to have a flat stomach, and the results have been AMAZING to say the least, and I am currently on “day 25” so I have 5 more days to go.

30 day flat abs challenge Me

Just to reiterate, the glasses of water shown on on the “challenge” is EXTRA water given, I challenged myself by drinking at least 1,5 liter of water a day, drinking more water helps because water has NO CALORIES, plus it also gives you the impression that you are full thus enabling you to eat less throughout the day.

Although gym helps, not many of us have the luxury of gym or the time to go, these simple exercises take less than 20 minutes and they actually really work. I know a lot of people might have overdone it during the holidays and actually gained more belly weight, eating the right type of food also helps, as well as the right amount.

EAT LESS. I achieved this by eating smaller portions of food. Use a smaller plate than your usual big plate, you can fill a small plate with food but not actually eat a huge portion.

Small Food

EAT HEALTHY! EAT HEALTHY! I cannot emphasize that enough. I joined this challenge with my big sister and we both did the exercises, but because she is a fan of junk-food her progress has been rather slow. Try to avoid junk food at all costs, and stay away from situations which will tempt you to eat Junk Food. Do not tempt yourself!

FRUIT! FRUIT! You can never go wrong with fruit and vegetables. They are low in calories and very healthy for you. What I do everyday is I carry a container at work with sliced carrots and cucumber so whenever my colleagues go to buy snacks I also have something to snack on which keeps me occupied and is also good for my diet.

BE ACTIVE!! Walk to places which are near as opposed to using transport, it is both good for your pocket as well as your health.

Try using the stairs instead of the lift, it is good to stay active during the day because you burn more calories the more active you are and that helps with getting a flat tummy.

I have 5 more days to go to finish my challenge. If you want a flat tummy, I dare you to try this!! If you have any questions, drop me a line on the comments section and I will gladly assist, Let’s do this!!!!! Flat tummies for all!!!!!!

Mholo, Hello, Groete, Sawubona, Lotjhani, Dumela, Ndaa, Avuxeni! I’m Sibahle Teyise, JAGWAT founder and head content writer. I have an Undergraduate Degree from UCT majoring in Public Policy and Literature, as well as a Postgraduate Diploma from UCT specialising in Marketing, Events Management and Business Communication. I am an author under construction, working on my book to be published soon- "When It Happens For Girls Like Us". I started JAGWAT in 2017, following the success of my personal blog - Tales Of The Mute. The inspiration to start JAGWAT came after hearing the sad stories of women being murdered on a daily basis, the violence against women as well as the many stories of women taking their own lives because of suffering in silence. JAGWAT provides a platform for women to take back the power by sharing their stories on a public central platform and with this, they show other women that they are not alone. I believe that when women stand together great things happen. No women should suffer in silence and the more we speak up as women and create a sisterhood and support group, the more powerful we can become. I am passionate about communities with women from disadvantaged backgrounds and JAGWAT supports Women Initiatives as well as making a difference in various schools from the township by offering assistance to learners in the form of mentorship and tutoring. I am a self-proclaimed book-worm and although I am a shy person, I am a motivational public speaker. I was heavily bullied in primary as well as high school and I am extremely passionate about Anti-Bullying campaigns and initiatives. I read, I write, I gym, I pray, I cycle, , I hike, I run, and pretty much everything in between. I am a weight loss motivator having lost 16kg in the past 2 years, which is quite an achievement for someone who can’t cook. (Thank GOD for food that can easily be boiled!!) I am a firm believer that an empowered women can empower other women and JAGWAT aims to be that platform for Women Empowerment. On a lighter note: I have the worst music playlist in the history of playlists.

  1. Hi Lisa, thank you so much for taking your time to read my blog and actually noticing the new revamp, much appreciated! No you do not HAVE to start at the beginning of the month. The challenge is for 30 days so you can start any day you want just as long as you finish those 30 days. You are also allowed to give yourself a day off (If you feel tired, although I doubt it). Good luck and do keep me posted 🙂
