You’ve had a child, or two, or three…now what? What are you supposed to do with the leftover pouch that has you feeling like a kangaroo?
First off, you are not a kangaroo. You had a human being growing inside of your stomach for months. How about patting yourself on the back for that! Second, if you are serious about getting rid of your little bit of belly fat, continue on reading!
Now, this is going to be painful so get ready for the good news and bad news.
The good news is that you will see results in as little as one month. The bad news is that you will have to do a 30-45 second plank every month and night, while only drinking water. Yep, I know it burns. That means, as soon as you wake up and take a trip to the lavatory, get into plank position and hold it for as long as you can! Not only do planks help with your upper body strength, tightening your gluts, and shrinking your stomach’s fat tissue, the benefits of water helps to tackle problem areas even by improving on circulation while working out. Drink water, and only water, for an entire month. No milk, no soda, no liquor. Just, water. I know, ouch.
You see, you have to wake up your organs so they can work overtime to get rid of unwanted things in the body, even fat. Although some fat is good, other fat is unhealthy especially around the belly area where we carry stress. No belly equals no stress.
This isn’t to say you should be ashamed of your mom belly. We all should treat it as a reward from our babies. What we do not have to do is allow excuses to pile up in our mid-section especially if our kids are far beyond toddlerhood. Let’s knock out two birds with one stone by getting rid of the belly fat, and the excuses! Today!
