Nothing Is Impossible: How to Remove Lower Belly Fat

icanhasflatstomachplez:

Step 1

Cut back on your bad eating habits. Give up the fried foods, processed meats, refined baked goods and sweets. Eat nothing but fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, lean meats, fish, whole grains, beans and low-fat dairy products. Keep your portion sizes under control as well.

Step 2

Partake in cardiovascular training to burn the fat in your lower belly, as well as the rest of your body. Do any type of cardio that causes you to sweat and raises your heart rate, such as running, spinning, inline skating, stair climbing, elliptical training and power walking. Aim for 45 to 60 minutes of cardio, three days a week on nonconsecutive days.

Step 3

Lift weights to build metabolically active muscle mass. Do exercises that work all your major muscle groups: bench presses, shoulder presses, back rows, triceps extensions, biceps curls and squats. Perform 10 to 12 reps, three or four sets and work out three days a week on the opposing days of your cardio.

Step 4

Lie flat on your back to do flutter kicks. Straighten both legs and lift them 6 inches off the floor. This is your starting point. Leave your right leg where it is and raise your left leg 2 to 3 feet higher. Lower your left leg as you simultaneously lift your right leg. Alternate back and forth in a steady motion for 15 to 20 repetitions. Place your hands under your butt if you feel stress on your lower back.

Step 5

Execute a set of mountain climbers to work your lower abs and burn calories. Align your body in a racing position with your hands shoulder-width apart on the floor and feet in a staggered stance. Keep your hips low as you quickly shift your feet back and forth on the floor as if you were running in place. Alternate each leg forward until you’ve done 15 to 20 reps with each leg.

Step 6

Perform knee tucks on a stability ball. Place your hands shoulder-width apart on the floor, place your lower shins together on the ball and straighten your arms. Lift your hips up to get your body into a push-up position and roll the ball toward your face as you tuck your knees into your chest. Hold for a second, then roll the ball back out; repeat 15 to 20 times.

Tips * Perform three to four sets of your ab exercises and workout after your cardio sessions.

Hi, this is me 2 years ago, when I was anorexic and was 95 pounds.
Not so pretty right?
EAT FOOD. Anorexia killed me, literally. My heart stopped for 8 minutes. 8. that’s classified as dead. I made myself better. On my own, for my life. You can do it too.

I’ve been getting off track lately

I’ve hit 129.8 twice so far but haven’t been able to get bellow it and have been fluctuating between 129.8-134. 

It’s so ridiculous! I tried to get back into my routine of not eating after 5 today and I did ok until about 9pm and I actually think I had a binge. I know people hate when others use the term “binge” loosely, but I can honestly say I believe this was a binge. I don’t even remember all the things I ate but I kept eating even after I felt sick. I really want to reach my goal weight before I start school and I know I can! I just need a little more determination. 

Well, it’s a new day and it’s never too late to start over. 

Three meals a day, two snacks, cardio everyday, weights three times a week. 

I can do this, I know I can.
