Go Figure

"I for one know that I need to get into a better routine of exercising at least 5 times a week.

I'm glad I'm not alone, it's always nice to have support, someone to encourage and motivate you to keep you going.

That's why we decided to start a new feature called Go Figure!

Every Friday we are going to share tips on exercise, weight loss and health.

We'd love for you to join us and let us know what works for you."

Here are my exercise tips for the week:

When falling off the wagon, don't wait for Monday to jump back on. Make your very next choice a good one.

Suck in your tummy. I have problems with having a flat stomach and did a great deal of research on postpartum diastasis recti, in other words a vertically split abdomen. The best exercises are the ones that affect the transverse muscle which are called the "girdle" of the stomach. So, suck it in, suck it in, suck it in!

Go Figure

Starting this Friday I am joining women across blogdom to put a few (*coughs*) pounds behind us, over at Mulit-tasking Moms with Amber's help:

"Leslie Sansone's In Home Walking has agreed to sponsor us! That's right, they are helping us kick off "Go Figure" by donating Leslie Sansone's Walk Slim System!!!

How great is that! Are you excited?! I know I am!"

I have to agree with Amber on this one. So in my efforts to join in and take one for the team I am going to share by two bits for this entry,

  1. Make exercise fun. What ever it takes, if that means buying a cute work-outfit or putting on your favorite it!
  2. My second "trick" is to drink water first when I get cravings. It is hot here next to the earths core (AZ) and I am sure there is no humanly possible way to drink all the water that I should be getting. This way it is the first off the list before diving into my temptation.
