I have these really cute and comfy pants that my boys gave me for my 40th birthday. The waistline is low-raise and, since they are made for skateboarding, they are made with material that stretches. I love them, but I have to keep pulling down most of my shirts to keep my back from getting cold. Over the weekend I found a shirt to match them that is made longer so that it pulls over the top of the hips. Being so short, I could probably pull it down over my whole butt. Anyhow, this shirt is only as flattering as my stomach is flat so I’ll be sucking it in all day long. I hope that will burn some extra calories.
At lunch, I had a good work out in the fitness center where I did my 3 mile run followed by the required strength work. I focused on arms and core, with just a touch to my legs. Consequently, my salad felt heavy in my arms as I climbed the 3 flights of stairs to my office.
In the fitness center, I was happy for the mirrors. Not only does it remind me to suck it in, but also I can see the muscles working. I love that. It’s so rewording to actually see the cuts developing. If only my stomach responded as well as my deltoids have to the added attention. I’ll be patient for now and, in the meantime, I will continue to suck it in.
