#MummyTummy July! Let's Firm Up Together!

No, that is not my pretty tummy on the right. I wish.

Ok, so, I don't know what's gotten into me except I got this idea in my head a few weeks ago and have been brooding on it and started thinking that if I actually DO IT I'll be forced to stick to it and maybe get some good results. I'm about 10 pounds away from my ideal weight but I'm also flabbbby and unhappy with my flabbbbbbiness and most often totally unmotivated to actually kick my own ass (pardon) in gear and actually do something about it. Let me just put it in the grossest, ugliest terms possible, terms that when I hear other people use them it makes me cringe: 

I have a muffin top. Oh my god I said it.

I have a spare tire! It's true, it's true. 

Can I get a "love handles"? Yes you can! 

Wow, that actually feels kinda better. I think I just interventioned myself.   

Yeah, Yeah - So What's #MummyTummy?

Beginning June 28 and ending July 31 I'll be tweeting the hashtag #MummyTummy throughout the day and would love for my Twitter friends to join the party! Please comment below with your Twitter moniker (e.g., I'm @OttosMomBlogs) and I'll send you dedicated tweets 4 times per day with the #MummyTummy reminder. Here's how I picture this working:

- Randomly 4x per day you'll get a tweet directly from me with the #MummyTummy hashtag
- When you see that tweet then the next time you are able, you plop yourself down on the ground and do 20 crunches, situps, or whatever ab workout you are comfortable with
- If you're on Twitter and you spot a #MummyTummy hashtag and it's not for you, that's worth 10 more crunches/situps/whatever
- After you do the deed, tweet me back with the #MummyTummy hashtag

I'm going to San Diego in 2 weeks and I'd love to be just a bit more confident in my skivvies on the beach. I thought by doing this together we could motivate and encourage each other.

And please don't get me wrong, I truly believe that every female body is gorgeous and that anything that your body is doing as a result of having a baby, growing older and wiser, or simply living your life is perfectly beautiful and perfectly natural. I've always been one of those people who judges themself much more harshly than I judge anyone else. That being said, and without taking this too seriously, I'd love to tone up and engage my abs and lose my (shhhh) muffin top. 

Who's in? I think this could be fun!
