So I am proud to say that since May of last year I went from not being able to even fit into the biggest pant size I could find in Target (size 20) to buying a size 15 today!!!!!
My legs are smaller, my arms are smaller, everything is smaller!
I still have a long way to go but the main thing I want to work on right now is tightening up my tummy. that damn flap from being pregnant makes it to where I have to pull my pants up over it which (IMO) looks horrible. And I bet with out having to pull it over my tummy I could fit into even smaller pants.
So, how to I tighten up my stomach? I know crunches work but is there anything else I can do? That will get faster results?
Believe it or not crunches are actually bad for post baby belly. You can actually make it worse.
Something I do all day long is tighten my stomach. Washing dishes, watching TV, whatever I just tighten my core and I just picture pulling my belly button in towards my spine and hold it but, keep breathing. You can do that doing wall push ups too. I know this works because I've been doing this and I'm slowly but surely tightening the pooch. It trains your muscles to go back to what they were. I also work my legs (lazily because I don't get out much.)Whenever I'm standing in place, I stand on my very tippy toes and I can feel my calf muscle tighten and I stand like that the whole time. I do lunges randomly sometimes in the hallway. I get the most exercise chasing LO and going over the safety gate 150 times a day.
