Motivation Monday:: Ciara’s Body Party

Heeey Friends! Sunday night, like millions of others, I was tuned in to the 2013 BET awards. One performance stood out for me and makes me want to take my workouts to a new, higher level, CIARA! Ciara performed two of her songs, Body Party and I’m out; she did an amazing job.  She revealed her toned body and her abs of steel! I was blown away by her fierceness and obvious dedication to her craft. Here’s a picture I snagged from Instagram of her performance. I love that she’s fit but not super muscular.

I will share workouts that I do as I embark on this.
