Abdominal Help Wanted

My husband ran upstairs last night when he heard me "making a lot noise." By the time he got there I was face down on the floor recovering from two sets of ten sit-ups. 20 is definitely unimpressive, but I am working on it. If you'll recall back in July I was unable to do even one measly sit-up so 20 is progress.

I know I need to keep working on strengthening my abdominal muscles, but I feel pretty unmotivated to do it. I enjoy all the running and biking, but sit-ups and planks are pretty hard for me right now. Like most, I tend to want to do the things that come easy. I need to "suck it up" as my high school gym teacher used to bellow during class.

Anybody have any great suggestions or new improved workouts for abs? I wonder if I should buy an ab belt or one of those fat jiggling machines like my aunt used to have in her basement. Ahhhh... the easy way out?

Are those ladies enjoying vodka greyhounds?
