I am hyperventilating from actually posting this pic. Usually it would have been deleted RIGHT AWAY!! But I am being BRAVE and posting it here instead in the hopes that it will motivate me to stick to my goals.
I know that I am holding my son and its not the greatest picture but the reason why I am posting it is because my butt looks HUGE and my pants are pulling across my thigh. Pretty :) This was just taken on Memorial day a few weeks ago so its accurate. Even though I wish it wasnt.
Now for yesterdays update. I stayed right within my points. Yay! I drank all my water. Yay! and I went to the gym .Yay! I did the elliptical machine for 26 minutes so its not as long as I would like but at least its something.
I was reading an interesting article yesterday at the gym about Belly fat so I thought Id post it here.
Flat Abs in 3 steps
1. Do heart pumping cardio at least 3 days a week at an intensity rate of 7 or 8. Women doing five workouts weekly who did this for 16 weeks cut ab fat by 8%.
2. When doing crunches hold a 2 pound weight or medicine ball with both hands, arms extended overhead. This strategy improves core activation by nearly 300%.
3. Munch on an ounce of nuts a day. Eating nuts helped studied participants trim excess belly fat.
So there is my update for today! Lets keep up the good work!! -Krista
