So, in light of the Grays I figured I'd highlight some things I'm totally stoked (Did i just say that? Am I a frat boy?) about with my body. They aren't yet the six pack I'm shooting for, but much progress has been made! I'm calling them the Lil Abners....
And just so we know where I'm coming from..... A pic of me the night before I gave birth to my third baby. You see the need for the tummy tuck, no? Oh I do NOT miss my gelatinous skin apron...
I do actually work on my abs. A lot. The tummy tuck alone took care of the separated muscles and skin- but didn't build muscle and tone. And I want muscle. It's coming...slowly but surely.
Here are my tummy blasters that I do at least 3 days a week:
Planks, planks, planks
(military, side, and with hip touches to work obliques)
I like all things that don't actually involve sit ups.
I think I'm going for more of a J Lo or Scarlett Johasson look these days. Gwyneth Paltrow used to be my idol. (Hello unattainable and unrealistic goal!) Then I realized waifish wasn't all that becoming. Plus I'm not blonde, fair skinned and married to Chris Martin. I'm enjoying the curves and booty. I think it's sexy and timeless. I don't mind some booty if I'm fit and toned. And the girls ain't too shabby either. I mean, they sustained this for 6 month alone:
Sexy and timeless.
That's my new theme. No more unrealistic goals.
Skinny jeans can kiss my ass.
Mary Kate and Ashely- drink a mocha or two please.
With a donut.
