When you’re a mom, it’s hard to fit a workout routine into your busy day. For you, regular exercise often consists of chasing your kids around, lugging laundry up the stairs, and picking up toys. You don’t have to accept that your six pack has turned into a spare tire, though! Here are some easy ways to squeeze fitness into your day and whittle away at your waistline while still being a mom:
When you sit down to read a book to your child, do so cross-legged and twist your torso to either side. Lay down and look at cloud shapes with your kids and curl upward to touch your toes, or raise both legs to the sky, then down again. Try it one at a time, as well. Then, with both legs straight up, lift your hips for easy abs of steel!
You can tighten that tummy cleaning up the playroom, too. When you’re picking up toys, squat and reach one arm up while the other is down, alternating as you go. Finally, when you’re taking that laundry basket upstairs, raise your knee to meet it with every step.
If you incorporate these exercises into your daily routine, but they just don’t seem to be doing the trick, not to worry! A tummy tuck performed by Dr. Lisa J. Learn can help you get your toned abs back. This procedure removes excess skin and fatty tissue, then tightens the remaining skin and muscle for the trim looking tummy of your pre-kid years. This surgery can also be combined with liposuction for an even slimmer stomach.
