Well, I am looking down on my tummy from this seat. It is going inward at the top and out a bit at the bottom. It used to be one big pillow in front of my hips. Now it looks deflated. Yes! My tummy has always been a big problem for me. That was always the first place I held fat at. I would think that I looked weird because I have these little legs and little arms and a huge belly! I felt like an apple with straws coming out of it! Thankfully I have a good program to combat this busting bulging belly. It is Hip Hop Abs. This is an old workout videos, probably from the 90's. But it works for me! I used it in '09 to get a smaller belly and it worked.The moves really target the middle and the cardio helps to burn fat. I love that video! Anyone who knows Shaun T from Insanity or Asylum will know him in Hip Hop Abs. It is a gentle version of Shaun T. One that I can follow. Great job to you who can follow Insanity or Asylum!
I have a problem that I battle almost every night. I wrote about this before but I will again. I sleep eat. I am a sleep walker since childhood. I would wake up all over the house as a kid and not know how I got there. I had some trouble in the past few years where I would wake up and just start to binge. I would know that I did it because I would later wake up full, have dirty dishes, food on my clothes and on my face. It is not pretty. The night before last I did it again. It is like a dream. I remember a gigantic bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. Then I was knocked out for hours with a sugar high. I woke and remembered the "dream" about the bowl of cereal and knew it was more like a nightmare come true. Dang it!
Last night I did better. I did not get up once! I slept until the morning and I waited until it was near 8 am to eat! That is progress! I guess I have to have a full day of activities to tucker me out so that I can sleep soundly. The work outs are helping too!
My hubby calls my tummy "Quanzos", kinda like that mutant in Total Recall that was in the guys belly. DH tells me to fight Quanzo. And I am. I am gonna kick Quanzo's ax! lol
Getting the belly down is a big deal to me. My waist is still large, 48 inches around. But it is smaller than it was. I think at one point I was 52 inches. Still far to go, but I am on my way. Baby steps. One day at a time.
