Let me show you something that no one has seen before... well, not for a few years, anyway! Say hello to my little friend, my beer belly. Isn't she so pudgy and cute?
|Say hello to my little friend... my beer belly!|
This gut is due to too many guilty food pleasures and not enough exercise. Giving birth twice may have had something to do with it, but even if I had never given birth I would still have this beer belly. Why? Because of my sheer laziness. I eat whatever takes my fancy and only get out of bed to make meals for my sons and I.
There's only one way to get rid of belly fat, and that is to sweat (from exercise) like there's no tomorrow. For the most part, the rest of my body I can deal with. My thighs do touch, but it'll stop once I start exercising. My arms are quite muscular and bulky looking due to pole dancing lessons I took a few years ago, but I guess that's a good thing? I hate how it looks but I hope that the muscle eats up all my fat, lol. I have an OK body, my friends are always harping on about how tall & skinny I am (which I'm not! I'm only 5'5 and weigh a whopping 60kg) but I must admit, I've been very lazy and not taking care of myself as a woman should be. So I'm... well, rather frumpy looking these days.
|I hate my belly.|
That up there is what I look like every day after eating. My gut size fluctuates depending on how much I've eaten. In the morning I have only a tiny little bump. By midday, I'm starting to look a little pregnant, and come dinner time, I look like I'm overdue to give birth. Ok, slight exaggeration, but it does get bigger by the end of the day! I don't like it very much.
|Belly from the side. Maybe I'm pregnant and just don't know it? And if I'm pregnant then damn, that was one very immaculate conception!|
I have a dream... A dream to get rid of my belly once and for all. There's only one way to do this: hard work and determination. And I'm going to start NOW.
|Take one last look at it. After today, you'll never see it again (I hope)!|
So here is my plan: eat less junky food and exercise more. It sounds simple enough, but for someone like me, this is going to take a miracle. I am probably the most lazy person on the planet and I absolutely love to eat. But, from this day forth I shall make sure that I eat only food that will be nutritious for my body (but allow for treats here and there, of course). I'll try to exercise at least half an hour a day, whether that be walking to the shops or dancing along to Yo Gabba Gabba with my son.
Hopefully, by the time the new year rolls in, I'll be a lean, mean, sexy machine (can you say DELUSIONAL?) My aim is not to lose weight (numbers don't matter to me), but to lose centimeters off my waist. So why not join me if you need to lose a few centimeters yourself (or kilos) and if you're super slim already, then wish me luck on this endeavour because I'm going to need it!
