Lose Your Mummy Tummy with these 7 Ways
ďCongratulations! Youíre pregnant again! When are you due?Ē
And then you try with every muscle in your body to force a fake smile and reply in your politest voice: ďOh, Iím not pregnant.Ē
This has happened to me a million times and while Iím struggling to reply as civil as I can, I have killed that person in my mind a thousand times and silently cursed my mummy tummy.
Going back to your pre-pregnancy waistline may be hard, but not impossible at all. Say goodbye to your mummy tummy with these 7 ways:
Exercise your whole body
Being a mom is not an excuse to slack off and keep that bulge. Be empowered to be a healthier you by making sure that you have a daily exercise routine. Jogging, aerobics, yoga, treadmill, lunges or indoor cycling are great options as these provide full-body workouts.
Breastfeeding is not only the best way to nourish your baby; it is also one of the easiest ways to get back to your pre-pregnancy weight. Your body burns approximately 300-500 calories while breastfeeding. You donít have to do much, by simply breastfeeding, you can wear your skinny jeans again.
Go green tea
Green tea has been a staple drink for those who want to lose weight. Say hello to a flatter tummy by drinking green tea every day. It is high in antioxidants called catechins which is a great aid in weight loss. Next time you try to reach out for a can of soda, have some green tea instead.
Eat tummy-friendly foods
You can actually eat your way to a smaller tummy. You heard that right. There are superfoods that can boost your metabolism and get rid of your mummy tummy. The next time that you do your groceries, make sure that you have these foods on your ďto buyĒ list:
Itís hard to have a full one hour workout session every day when youíre juggling between taking care of the baby and the rest of your family, doing all the household chores and still working full-time. Make every moment an opportunity to move those muscles. Play some ball with your your other kids outside. Itís not only a great way to bond, itís also a clever way to burn that mummy tummy.
Most moms can agree that too much stress can result in binge-eating. Munching on those extra calories will just add more pounds to your already screaming tummy. Manage stress by taking some time off to relax, breath and appreciate all the blessings that you have.
Have a massage
