If it is, first of all... Congrats! :) And second, I was wondering what you did to get that. I'm already that body type, just my abs aren't very much developed... I do track so we do a lot of ab work, but is there anything specific you did to get it like that? The shape of your abs is just so graceful and pretty. :)
If I got the wrong person... Than oops! I'm so sorry! I do like your blog, though. So here's a follow!!!
Gah I really wish I could honestly answer yes to that. My body type is in between that before & after picture, so I could relate to it & that is why I posted it!
I used to have abs that were defined [a ways back] so I can still list some tips for you!
What you eat is super important. If I had a dime for every time I’ve heard “Abs are made in the kitchen, not at the gym” I’d have enough to pay a personal trainer!
Avoid sugars, sodium, processed/canned foods, & limit your carb intake. Don’t get rid of carbs altogether though! You’re body needs them. If you eat bread make sure it’s whole grain. Whole wheat is better than white, but whole grains are the best.
Some belly fat fighting foods: almonds, cherries, berries, grapefruit, oranges, green tea, oatmeal, olive oil, eggs, beans, lean meats/fish, peanut butter, greens, low fat milk, avocados, tea [iced-made with tea bag, or hot]… high proteins & good fats.
I also recommend vitamins. I picked up some at the grocery store just yesterday. Some good ones I’d look into are Fish Oil, Flaxseed Oil, & Biotin. The oils give you healthy fat in the form of Omega 3 & Biotin helps the digestion of proteins & carbs.
Exercises: I like to do P90x 2-3 times a week to focus mainly on abs. Cardio is great for getting rid of that stubborn layer of fat on top of the abdominal muscles [or anywhere really!]. HIIT [high intensity interval training] is great for that because it confuses your body causing you to work harder. Do it on the elliptical or treadmill by alternating resistance, hills, or speed, or take a spin class!
I hope this helps :)
