Congratulations Kim!!! You will be receiving lots of emails soon!! What a fun way to start your summer!!
This week for my Workin' It Wednesday post I decided it was time to focus on my summer fitness.
This past year I feel like my body has really changed. I am not any heavier, actually I don't know how much I weigh, I don't own a scale. My clothes fit, but they fit differently. As I am aging my body parts have headed south and it's not a pretty sight!
Blogging and spending so much time on my computer, driving my kids around and just not eating as much as I should, have taken a toll and the main area is my gluteus maximus, or should I say gluteus minimus!!
Seriously, I have no butt. It is gone. I am suffering from severe Soggy Bottom!!
My daughter commented the other day after I came back from a surf and said, "Whoa, your butt is so flat, it doesn't even fill up your bikini bottoms!"
What a way to make a girl feel good!!
I hate to post this picture, it is not me of course, it's Cindy Crawford. We are the same age and I have to say we have the same butt!! (That's about all we have in common, lol)
So my goal this summer is to get off my butt, and work those glutes. I love to run and surf, but those exercises are not helping to increase my muscle in that area, they are having the opposite effect.
I have made a commitment to run/surf 3-4 times per week and try to add in squats and lunges every day!
I found a few articles and I think this exercise is one I really need to try!
I know that genetics has a lot to do with my saggy bottom as well. My mother has never had a butt as long as I can remember and I am destined to this same fate, if I don't do something about it.
Another big factor is my diet. I eat when I am hungry and that's not very often. My stomach only growls when I am REALLY hungry. I am one of those crazy people that gets going and forgets to eat! I often end up with headaches and no energy because of it!!
So that is my next step to alleviate my soggy bottom crisis. I need to plan my meals! I am working on it and I will give you more details next week!!
