Flattening my ab :)- by Lisa Irby

The best exercise for the stomach is probably not the one you're thinking of. It's not the traditional sit-up or ab crunch. It's not even ab related.

So before you go out and buy the Gut Buster 2000, you should know that the best exercise you can do for your stomach won't cost you a red cent.

All you need are your two feet because the exercise that I'm talking about is none other than walking or jogging.

If you've found that your stomach is flabbier than you'd prefer it to be, it's likely there are other parts of your body that need firming up as well.

Your body cannot just eliminate fat in one area. So if you are trying to crunch your way to a flatter stomach without exercising the rest of your body, you'll never see results.

To achieve a flat stomach, your entire body has to get leaner. Read that sentence again.

Start by doing cardio exercises to get your heart rate up and improve your metabolism. A good fast-paced walk three times per week is a great way to accomplish this. Not only does this burn calories, but it's good for your heart.

Did you know that a good, consistent cardio workout can increase your metabolism by up to 24 hours? Yep, it's true!

A Quick Exercise for Your Metabolism

Below is a sample workout that you can do to help give your metabolism a quick boost. It will help your body burn calories more efficiently if performed regularly.

1) Perform 30 seconds of hard exercise (i.e. run in place as fast as you can)

2) Perform one minute of moderate exercise (i.e. a casual jog or brisk walk).

3) Repeat this process 10 times.

4) Cool down for 3-5 minutes


In addition to a healthy diet, walking and/or jogging is one of the best stomach exercises you can perform because it raises your metabolism enough to burn excess calories all over your body.

Total body fitness is the key to a flat stomach, not just spot toning one area. Why not kick-start your fitness program with a nice, fast-paced walk 3-4 times per week? Your stomach and the rest of your body will say, "Thank you." :)

fuuhh lega.

Nothing big but I gotta have this out of my chest.


Me and ikan is quite relieved as we did the TALK with bibik last nite. It was put on hold since forevever! Ok, at first we wanted to test her for 2 weeks, then planned the TALK. But unfortunately, we had this ‘thing’ after a month she was with us and even tho the TALK was crucial that time, we had it postponed.. sbb- ikan was always away and his badminton nites and our macam2 thots that made us procrastinate. I did however, took the cheeky way out and asked my mom to slow talk and what not.


But at last, we TALKed last nite. Fuuhh.. debar babe! Ntah apa2 ntah.. nak cakap ngan bibik pun debar. :p

But I guess all went well. I am satisfied of the things we pointed out. Satisfied of the things she pointed out too.


So, mintak2, pray to Allah that this relationship brings goodness to all- my family and her’s too. Amin.


Ps- thanks to kakak, prema, kaklong, abang + kak asna and my bid- azury for the advices. Tolong doakan yeh?
