Muffin Top! Muffin Top!

Muffins.. Hmmm.. Hmmm.. Hmmm... Don't you love them? I do. Especially those filled with blueberry goodness and chocolate chips. Just yummy.. But not so much when they are of the excessive flesh hanging over your jeans variety.. Yes, ladies, I am talking about those muffin tops.

Sad to say that I have one of those.. :)~~~ No, I am not going to put up some pictorial evidence of it. Just believe you me, it's there..

Most days, I just slip on the knee length Crony Envy Long Drawer and the muffin top would go away for a few hours. (Itupun belum bayar kat ibu lagi. hihihihi.. Halal je la mommy, ok?) Once I take it off, there it is once again, just like a loyal dog waiting for its master. *sigh* Sometimes, I use these words of wisdoms to hide them: Tips to lose the muffin tops or 10 ways to stop muffin tops On days that I am not able to, I would have kind(?) friends / acquaintances / strangers ask me how far along am I in my pregnancy.

So, I guess it is high time that I did something about it..

  • Breakfast is limited to cereals and milk - minimize the nasi gorengs, nasi lemaks and what nots. Success rate? Been having Post Breakfast Cereal since Tuesday with Adeeb. Slipped a little today when I had the cereal AND nasi lemak.
  • No rice for lunch. Haven't had rice since Tuesday too. (Tapi, evening breaks dah makan burger on Tuesday and half a plate of nasi goreng on Wednesday. How, la?)
  • Cut out the sugary stuff in drinks - Now, going with limau ais kosong, watermelon/pineapple/apple juice taknak gula and the lot. Air suam is better.
  • The 30-minutes after makan drink ban is still on.
  • Need to start fasting (can also ganti my 8 days) by next week.
  • Go up the stairs from Level 3 to Level 9 Menara TM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Success rate: Not too bad, did it on Monday! :)
  • Try to jog / walk up and down and up and down Pantai Hillpark at least once a week. Success rate: Walked down - Ran up - Walked down - Ran 1/4 and walked 3/4 up on Thursday! Yeay!
  • Squeeze one session at the swimming pool - min 20-short laps. Success rate: The week is not yet over, honey! *snap*snap*
Cukup la tu. Banyak-banyak kang tak terbuat pulak. You know me, the Queen of HHTA..

Along said...

Oh my god. I also have muffin top!! Yesterday I tried on my old jeans, and I could hardly button it up.

Yeah...I'm thinking of starting an exercise routine when I get back to the office too. Tapi Along pun jenis HHTA jugak..muahmuahmuah...camne?

dillazag said...

You just gave birth to a 40-odd day girl, you are ALLOWED to have a mmuffin top. What are you blabbing about, girl? hihihihihihihi

Lain la makcik yang dah lama meninggalkan persada beranak nih.. I have no excuse, except if I am actually pregnant, lah. Which I am not. So, there..

But, you could always start small.. Naik tangga dulu, beb.. Kurangkan penggunaan elektrik!

I think kita kena buat club HHTA kat Menara ni. Baru semangat..

Semangat! Semangat!

I used to do it in the following sequence:
- week 1 - start avoiding carbonated drinks
- week 2 - start reducing rice intake to 3 times a week
- week 3 - start going to gym twice a week

The rest of them were started in the following months. Cannot do too many things at one go.
My total body fat actually went down and I lost about 6kg after 6 months. It's quite slow but I managed to maintain the new weight for a few years (before I got pregnant).

The most important thing is getting more than 6 hours sleep every night.
