Hey guys! Hope your Tuesday’s been a good one 🙂 Thanks so much for all of your uplifting comments about what you want to see more of on the blog…you really know how to make a girl smile! I’ll just keep doin’ what I’m doin’ 🙂
This was such a great lunch…I really can’t get over how awesome this sandwich is! I think I said it before, but it’s basically a deconstructed chile relleno, and it’s face-rocking good! You should go make it now 🙂 Tonight we’re going to our community group, and I’m taking a FREE SALAD that I got from lunch just in case there’s nothing meat-free being eaten. I bet there’ll be something good, but I’m gonna take it just in case! I made a little somethin’ last night that I’ll be sharing later, but it’s a secret still 😉
SO, on to the reason for the title of this post. Please observe the item wrapped around the waist here:
This picture is NOT so that everyone can check this guy out. I was on my walk today and kept having to remind myself to pull my abdominal muscles in, and started to get pretty frustrated with myself. Now, I know these bands are mainly marketed as “slimming you down” by sweating out all the water in your stomach (really guys? really?), but I was thinking about hitting up Walmart for one for the sole purpose of wearing it as a reminder to keep my core strong and firm. I don’t want to wear it to lose weight or anything, but mainly as a way to strengthen my core.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it would be a better idea to just get over it and constantly remind myself? What fitness products have you tried? Which ones have worked? Which ones haven’t? Confession: I’ve actually owned one of these bad boys before, and although it didn’t make me “lose weight” in just my stomach, I do feel that it helped me to remember to pull my core in during a workout!
