I love muffin tops, but not on my body….although some of those on my body came from eating real muffin tops. Whether you call them your love handles, spare tire or muffin tops, they can spoil the neat line of fitted clothing and pop over the top of the waist of your jeans.
Those pesky lumps of flesh around the waist are tough to hide. I’ve even suffered through the super tight fitted undergarments designed for that purpose, but won’t do it again, even if the occasion is super special.
Instead, I watched this video and started doing the exercises. It’s only been a week of just doing them every other day, and I can feel the muscles reacting. I’m not saying I’m any thinner.
Ah, if only it were that easy. What I am saying is I now know every muscle underneath my spare tire of fat. I also did as the video suggested, I started eating healthy. I guess you can’t get rid of a muffin top if you still eat them every day.

I love the feeling of stressing my body this way. I know that sounds dumb, but it’s true. Each time I work out and sweat a bit, I feel a little better. It comes from burning off the stress hormones.
It’s like running at top speed for a while and then stopping. You ache, but you feel so good for having accomplished it, and your body feels relaxed. From what I’ve read, exercise also stimulates the brain to create hormones that make you feel good. I can attest to that.
Okay, now all I have to do is shed a few pounds, keep doing cardio and adding these exercises to the mix. I tone my entire body while eliminating the love handles in the process.
Even though the words love handles indicates something to cherish, I’m choosing to love myself first and lose that weight. Getting into shape isn’t just for me, it’s for my whole family.
Not only will I look fabulous, I’ll be around longer to take care of them and yes, love them. You might say, I’m getting a handle on real love and getting rid of the love handles.
