Reasons NOT to Skip Your Workout


Just this once!

I’m too tired today…

One day won’t hurt, will it?

Do these excuses sound familiar? You may have even had those thoughts today. It’s not hard to come up with excuses not to exercise, and while skipping your workout may not seem like a big deal, it can all too quickly become a habit.

4 Things to Do to Flatten Your Stomach

Change 1: Metabolic Exercises

This means you may have to work harder but for a shorter length of time.

Change 2: Proper Posture

Slouching when you sit or stand makes your belly appear bigger than it really is, but proper posture makes you taller and leaner—and more confident. Align your body in a straight line by keeping your ears above your shoulders and your shoulders in line with your hips, knees, and ankles. Don’t let your shoulders roll over or inward but imagine your shirt is hanging on a hanger. Not only will good posture make you appear thinner, but you’ll also have more energy and lung capacity.
