Hello, Hello! Happy Monday! It's time for another Someday...Monday.

Okay, I realize it is winter. We had both snow and rain over the weekend. But I saw this swimsuit and loved it! Of course it looks so cute on this teeny-tiny model...

Swimsuit Here

I'm sure you don't want to put a swimsuit on yet! (I know I don't) I read a fabulous book over the weekend... Lose your Mummy Tummy by Julie Tupler and Jodie Gould

The “mummy tummy” is another term for “diastasis recti”. It is a condition where the abdominal muscles get stretched out and separate. It happens during pregnancy because of the strain of carrying the baby. It causes the belly to pooch out (Yes, I have a pooch). It can also occur with excessive exercise or improper lifting of heavy objects. And do you know what else? Sit-ups make it worse!

I loved this book, and I have already started doing some of the exercises. I want to be ready to put on a cute new swimsuit this summer!

Oh, I have such a "Mummy Tummy"! I thought it would take surgery to fix it, though, because my muscles had separated. I would love to find out that exercises would help!

I also have a mummy tummy. I really didn't think there would ever be hope to lose it. I just started my quest back to the gym this past week and I am going to have to find this book now. Thanks!

Digger said...

I need to find this book as well. I work really hard to get back in shape after my kids, but just can't seem to get rid of the mummy tummy! Thanks so much!! Thanks for linking up with us at the Find Some Love Fest!!

I checked out this book from our library after researching the cost to repair my diastasis issue. My muscles separated with each pregnancy but it didn't go back after my third. I was ready for a tummy tuck. BUT as a last ditch effort I got this book. I started following some basics in this book and soon I started seeing a difference! I made sure that my muscles were strong enough before starting up running and exercising again. When I started out, I just would not do some things in pilates class because my muscles weren't ready. Now, I just apply the concepts to everything I am doing- sitting, pilates, running, etc. I am a small girl so that pooch was looking like I was pregnant (even though I was 1 yr post partum from my third!). I was so embarrassed when people would ask me things to find out if I was pregnant. The book is great! You don't have to be post pregnancy! Anytime. Sorry for a long comment. I'll stop now : )

Nice suit.There was a time, when I could of worn a suit like that - but the deal is, when you're young and thin - you think you're fat and not good enough. Now I look back at my old pictures and think, "what was I thinking?" I'd give anything to revisit my old days to be able to wear something like that again. Wow! DH would love it too!

Amy said...

I'm definitely intrigued! I feel like since I had my son 3 years ago, no matter how much I exercise or how fit the rest of my body is, I just can't get rid of that annoying pooch! Thanks for sharing at shine on fridays!!
