so i was looking for ab workouts other than crunches and stuff, and i came across these. all you do is contract your abdominal muscles and hold it in for as long as you can.
the routine i found for working this into your daily workout is:
Week 1: hold for 20 seconds; do 3 reps
Week 2: hold for 30 seconds; do 3 reps
Week 3: hold for 40 seconds; do 3 reps
i only tried is for like 10 seconds and boy did i feel it!
This actually works. Thought I’d share. But you HAVE to stick to it!
Don’t go by the numbers- aim to look healthy!((:

1. Hydrate. 2. Eat. 3. Move. Whether you overdid it with the turkey or the pie, it’s easy to beat yourself up for falling off the diet-wagon. But, instead of feeling guilty, be proactive! Feeling sorry for yourself won’t erase the calories so why torture yourself. Focus on the positive and get moving…
Booze and salty foods will leave your body dehydrated. The first thing you should do when you wake up is drink at least 8 ounces of water to get your body flowing. Keep hydrated and aim to get at least 64 ounces of water throughout the day. You will feel much better and less bloated if you make sure to keep hydrated.
Sounds counter-intuitive, right? But starving yourself the day after a long night of eating will only set yourself up for a binge. Eat a refreshing breakfast of fruit, especially bananas as they are rich in potassium. If you can manage to eat a larger meal, try to eat something with eggs. Eggs contain taurine and cysteine, both of which help flush toxins out of your body.
While you may be dead tired, drag yourself out of bed and do something active. Yoga, a light jog, it doesn’t matter, just get moving. Once your heart starts to pump and you sweat out those nasty toxins, you will feel lighter and more energized.
