hey, i absolutly love your blog <3333
its one of my very favorites (:
i have 2 quick questions. 1; how do you lose lower belly fat? 2; how do you build up ab muscles in your lower abs.?
hope that made sense.
thank youu (:
thank you!! :D
there is no way to target the fat on a specific part of your body, whether its your arms or lower belly. the only way to lose the fat in that area is by losing fat all over your body through a combination of strength training and cardio.
to build up muscles in your lower abs, do strength moves that target those muscles. for me, i love leg raises (lie down, place your hands under your tailbone, palms facing the floor, and lift your leg up 90 degrees. lower them until theyre inches above the ground, then lift up again. that’s one rep. do 10-15).
Invest in a mini fridge. Keep it stocked with healthy snacks you can reach for when hunger strikes. Apples, oranges, peanut butter, lean deli meats and string cheese are all wonderful options.
Take a lap around the dining hall before filling your plate. If you have a meal plan, make sure to take a lap around the dining hall to assess your options before piling a bunch of food on your plate. This way you’ll fill up your plate with the nutritious foods you want the most and not that hard roll or dry slab of meat that looked only somewhat appealing.
Make fruits and veggies 50 percent. When plating your lunch or dinner at a dining hall, allow fruits and vegetables to take up 50 percent of the space on your plate. Fill the other 50 percent evenly between whole grains and lean protein.
Beware of the salad bar. Salad bars are wonderful for those hoping to take in a nutritious meal… That is until you pile on gobs of dressing. Enjoy the salad bar but select lighter dressing like olive oil and vinegar or a balsamic vinaigrette rather than dressings full of saturated fat.
Drinks add up. Shots. Lemon drops. Margaritas. They add up. Of course alcohol enjoyed in moderation can be part of a healthy lifestyle, but many college students hit the bars night in and night out, downing drink after drink and then wonder why the pounds start to pack on when they eat healthy otherwise. Hmmm…
Make like-minded friends. Working out and eating healthy is much more fun when your friends are on board as well. Suggest trying out a new local healthy restaurant with your friends and share your latest healthy snack discoveries with each other.
Awesome! I need stuff like this for next year. This year I’m gonna be a senior. :)
Ok i actually LOVE your blog!!! Its amazing and shows such great achievement along with inspiration, how long have you been working for your new body?
thank you so much!
for a verrryyy long time. i started really losing weight in gr.10, and i kept going on and off with my diet. i didn’t do it the healthy way, either. it wasn’t until senior year when i decided i don’t just want to be skinny - i want to be healthy.
