Whittle My Middle (Day 2 & 3)

Today my stomach did not feel sore. I've improved over yesterday already. Shoes are important to do some of these exercises I've decided. Also it helped to be more familiar with what I was doing.
Since the improvement isn't based on strength, at this point, I'm going to call this my baseline... it will be interesting how I can improve over the next 28 days.
Day 2 (Dec 2):

  • Plank: 48 seconds
  • Side plank: Right Side: 36 seconds, 46 seconds Left Side: 32 seconds, 42 seconds
  • Plank with elbows on stability ball  41 seconds!!!
  • Stability Ball Jackknifes 38 seconds, 15reps
  • Stability ball roll out  
  • Plank Rotations 15 seconds,  3reps
  • TOTAL TIME: 5 minutes. 
Day 3 (Dec 3):

  • Plank: 61 seconds, 15 seconds
  • Side plank: Right Side: 57 seconds,  Left Side: 48 seconds
  • Plank with elbows on stability ball  42 seconds!!!
  • Stability Ball Jackknifes 35 seconds, 14reps
  • Stability ball roll out   75 seconds, 15reps
  • Plank Rotations 15 seconds,  2.5reps
  • TOTAL TIME: 5  minutes. 
I'm getting better.  I should tell you that my side planks are modified.  (my arm is not straight at my side, rather I use it to help support me.)  All other modifications are unintentional.  lol.
