Goodbye Muffin Top
Who else has gotten lazy with their core?
Am I the only one? I think I’m surrounded by fibbers.
Actually, I’m probably not surrounded by fibbers; it’s me. I’ve gotten lazy with my whole body. Again. What’s wrong with me???!!!
I’ve been sitting on my butt trying to finish my manuscript like a real writer should.
This means I’ve been literally sitting on my butt at my desk for sometimes hours at a time.
I think my butt has gotten bigger. My left hip is definitely aching for its lack of attention.
Did I ever mention I have hip dysplasia? It’s fun. Actually, it doesn’t bother me in the least. But it does mean my legs from my hips down to my feet curve inward and my hips hurt if I don’t pay attention to them by exercising them on a regular basis.
I was doing really well for the last two years – no hip pain whatsoever. But since I’ve cracked down on my writing, my exercising has gone by the wayside and my hips hurt again.
(By the way, I’m almost done with my rewrite. 3 chapters left and then I go back and edit about 280 pages. Fun.)
(Yeah, I honestly am having a lot of fun.)
I should concentrate on my whole body but right now I want to concentrate on my flabby doughnut belly.
This should be not simple but doable. Easy to understand at least.
It’ll hurt a lot the first week I should think but hopefully after that the burn will be normal. I had surgery about a decade ago that left scars on my abdomen. When I neglect my core exercises, some of the scars get tight and will pull when I start up again. Very painful. After a while they limber up and it’s fine again. I guess it’s just like the hips…except not really.
What makes you neglect your fitness?
