Cardio helps burn fat.  Fat is what keeps your abs from showing so doing just ab workouts doesn't cut it. Using intervals for runs and doing high intensity circuit training will melt the fat and ab workouts will carve those abs. Got to pair up those workouts or you will just waste your time.

Well if you cardio already then great.
I do planks/side planks for core strength; v-ups, situps, flutterkicks, and frog-kicks for core development. I usually hit the planks for 1 minute a piece and do that for 9 minutes.  Then do three rounds of 30 seconds each of those exercises I mentioned.  After all that I do 1 burnout round of supermans for my lower back.

Plyometrix, aquatix, cardio etc.. it's all good but what counts is what you do OUTSIDE the gym.

Convert your micronutrients to 40/30/30. Eliminate meats.  Eliminate chicken.  Make vegetables and fish your main protein intake.  Drink minimal 1liter of h20 per meal.

I've found that the Mediterranean, zone and dash diet work very well for weight loss. If you really want to shed off pounds and keep it off I strongly suggest a vegetarian or Vegan diet. 

Your main protein sources would then come from plant sources and legumes and variety of fruits. I'm a vegan. It works!

Check out some vegan recipes I have at Facebook.Com/kinetixpts

What you are proposing might be great, but I don't think Sarah is ready for such a drastic change. She probably isn't in the shape you are. Also, a litre of water per meal, combined with the water in food and the water consumed outside of meals amounts to over a gallon per day. People have killed themselves drinking two litres within an hour... What I am trying to say is that Sarah might not be at the stage in her fitness plan where you are and might not have the same goals, so what works for you might be...

I'm actually trying to cut gluten out dairy (for the most part) and have only one meat night a week. I eat a lot of fruits & veg and my water bottle is my best friend. I don't drink juice or milk (for the most part lol) thank you for both trying to help me. :)

What I'm proposing is exactly what I mentioned: a gradual transition to one of 5 option meal changes. What works for me has worked for millions.

It sounded a lot like you were proposing all of that at once...
