Eliminate the Love Handles

Eliminiate Love Handles GRIT by BritHey hey ladies and gents!  Hope you had a FABULOUS weekend!  One of my best best friends from London came to visit me in Dallas this weekend.   We had a great time dining, laying by the pool and catching up on life.  This Friday we’ll be heading to Greece for our much awaiting summer vacation – eek!

As last-minute prep for our beach bodies, I designed this ab workout to focus primarily on the love handles (yes…that little layer of fat that sits so nicely on my side above my low-rise pants).  The workout incorporates some techniques that I use in my PiYo Strength (Pilates/Yoga fusion classes).  BTW, if you live in Dallas, you better come join me for PiYo on the deck every Saturday – it’s free and we have the best view in Dallas at the W Hotel 16th floor wet deck!

My “Eliminate the love handles” workout only takes 8 minutes – try it out and let me know what you think! Trust me, you will be sore tomorrow 🙂

Best ABS Ever!

I think you’re FABULOUS!  xoxo, Brit

Melt the Muffin Top: Complete workout for your CORE

Alright y’all.  Summer time is quickly approaching.  While I’ve learned to love my “love handles” and opt for high-waist pants rather than low-rise ones, I still feel a need to address the much dreaded “muffin top.”  Now, we all come in different shapes and sizes and we should embrace our natural curves.  However, excess belly fat and fat storage around the hips is neither HEALTHY nor SEXY.  Belly fat, which is called visceral or intra-abdominal fat, is linked to high cholesterol, high insulin, high triglycerides, high blood pressure and other health problems. You can click here to read up on more health risks of excess belly fat.

Below is a workout I designed that will strengthen your core and lower back and also help provide some definition to you lower waist.  For best results, do this workout 3 times per week for 4 weeks along with 30-45 minutes of high intensity cardio intervals.  I’ve also included some pics of me doing the workout this morning to help guide you.  Try it out and let me know how it goes.  Enjoy!  Luv, Brit 🙂

Lose the POOCH! Complete workout for your LOWER ABS

lose the pooch

FUPA = Front Upper Pubic Area

(aka “pooch”)

Alright, you guys asked for it so here it is – the ultimate workout for our biggest problem area: LOWER ABS!

Now, if you truly want to lose your pooch you have to minimize belly fat.  That means you have to eat clean & sweat.  That’s right folks, hit that treadmill, drink that water and eat those apples – just keepin’ it real.

Also, keep note that there are 3 key mistakes we often make that cause our tummy to look super saggy.  Avoid these!

  1. Slouching – Stand up straight, puff out that chest and suck in that tummy.  Just standing up straight can make us look up to 10 pounds lighter, no joke!  Also, walking around like a hunchback makes us look  sloppy and insecure…not cute.
  2. Too much sodium – Salt makes us retain water and causes stomach bloating.  If you need to slim down for a big event, cut back on the salt!
  3. Not enough water – Dehydration causes “bowel issues” which also causes bloating.  Drink up and flush out 😉

Try the workout along with some CARDIO and let me know how it goes.  Once you get the exercises down, repeat the circuit up to 5 times for a #hardcore burn – enjoy!

Lots of luv, Brit
