How To Get a Six Pack

Hi friends!  Thank you all so much for your best wishes yesterday for our anniversary!  Unfortunately the Hubs was in Mexico for work but he did send me some beautiful flowers and we are going out to dinner when he is back!  

On Monday we talked about the Bliss Fat Girl Slim Lean Machine for reducing cellulite, well, today we are going to get a six pack! I don’t know about you but I’ve never been one that thought my abs were my best asset.  While not flabby, I wouldn’t say I have a ripped six pack.  Any bulges that create the appearance of muscles are usually the result of a recent pasta binge.  What can I say, I love my carbs!

In reality though, I do a lot of cardio and a lot of core work.  I think they are both essential to a healthy body but I also kind of want to look like I have an awesome bikini body.  So when Bliss asked me to try out their Fat Girl Six Pack, I was super excited!  I decided it is my mission to get a six pack and I put together a little tutorial for you on how to achieve a six pack!

1.      Cardio– Everyone has ab muscles but whether or not they are defined depends on how much you have covering them up.  If you are carrying around any extra bodyweight, your ab muscles are going to be covered by a layer of fat.  No matter how many crunches you do, you won’t be able to see definition in these muscles until you can burn away the fat.  The best way to get rid of fat is with cardio.

2.      Eat ab-tastic foods– Certain foods will help you banish belly fat better than others.  For example, good fats like raw nuts, avocados and fish like salmon.  Low-fat dairy like Greek yogurt is good for you and contains probiotics that aid digestion.  Healthy, fiber-rich grains like quinoa will help achieve that flat belly look.  And of course the winner in all things health related– fruits and vegetables!

3.      Crunch, twist & tone– Yes, my friends, the good old ab crunch will help you achieve that perfect six pack look you are going for!  I put together a few ab moves at the end of this post for you to try!

4.      Drink lots of water–  Water helps with your digestion and naturally flushes out waste from your body.  Filling up on H20 will also keep you from noshing if you aren’t really hungry.     

5.      Eat small, frequent meals throughout the day–  Grazing will help keep you full but not overly stuffed.

6.      Lay off the salt–  Salt makes you retain water, which can lead to bloating.  By cutting back on sodium (which is also good for your ticker!), you can avoid unnecessary puffiness.

7.      Try Fat Girl Slim Sixpack- In combination with eating healthy and exercise, Fat Girl Slim Six Pack is designed to give your skin a more toned, six pack look.  The caffeine contained in the gel helps diminish bloat giving you smoother looking skin.  Amino acids support natural microcircluation in the mid-section.  Creatine supports natural cell metabolism.  Oat Kernel Extract creates the appearance of tightening.  It also helps reduce visible sagging.  All in all, the Fat Girl Slim Six Pack is designed to help you achieve a more toned looking tummy.

    It is great to have our secret tips like the Fat Girl Six Pack. Reminding us to always do our cardio, crunches and twists is the best!

    I think you just about covered them! It’s key to get rid of that fat layer and then work that core!! The best advice is that “abs are made in the kitchen!” So much about getting a six pack is from what you eat…but you already knew that 🙂
    LOVE those beautiful flowers. Enjoy them!

    I always say – “I have a 6 pack, I just like to keep it covered .” I know that my problem is my eating (and happy hour) because I do tons of cardio and core work – for the most part, I’m OK with not having a true 6 pack.

    Just ‘clicked’ away for you! I realllllly hate doing my abs. For sure my least favorite workout. I like your tips, though!! 🙂

    For me, it’s all about eating… back in the day when I was lean and mean, I had a six pack… oh how I miss those days.

    Cute post idea! I totally can get abs — certainly not a 6 pack, but some definition! — when I’ve been eating nice and clean. Right now I have a couple of pounds covering them up, so I need to cut down the sugar and wine over the next bunch of weeks….starting tomorrow…Ha! Though I’m totally serious 🙂

    I love all of these tips and all of your moves! I notice the most improvement in my (wannabe) 6 pack when I clean up my diet. When I cut the sugar and white flour, I notice my waist trimming down and the love handle going away pretty quickly. Too bad the sugary stuff is so dang yummy though!
