As woman in my forties, I understand and appreciate the challenges that others in my age group face. Our waist lines want to expand even when we exercise and are careful with our nutrition.

What’s a woman to do? Sadly there isn’t a ‘magic formula’, but there is hope.

GET RID OF YOUR TREADMILL!

Yes, you read it right. If all you do on your treadmill (or any cardio machine) is long, slow, monotonous sessions, stop it! Sell yourself your treadmill and make room in your house and life for some really effective fat burning exercise. And you don’t need to spend a lot of money!

USH YOUR WEIGHT AROUND!

 

WANT A TIGHT TUMMY? STOP DOING CRUNCHES!

The mid-section is always a trouble spot for women in their forties. There is no magic bullet for this area, but the PLANK is one of the most effective exercises that you can safely perform to tone the abdominals. It effectively targets the abdominal area, and is much safer and easier to learn to perform than crunches. Having a strong core will reduce back aches and improve posture as well.

You start by holding the position shown in the photo for as long as you can. If that is too difficult, start on your knees. As you get stronger, hold that position for longer periods. If you started on your knees, soon you will graduate to your toes. Before you know it, you will be sporting a stronger, flatter tummy!

The Reality of Dieting

There are several unavoidable truths about what you eat.

Sleep

Lack of sleep causes stubborn middle-age belly fat
As you get older and busier, getting enough sleep becomes a BIG issue. Although your body is resilient and can handle a lot of stress, there’s one thing it can NOT cope well without… and that’s sleep.

In fact, when you’re sleep deprived your body becomes overwhelmed with stress hormone “cortisol”, which loves to deposit fat in and around your belly.

And unfortunately, you can’t exercise or diet your way to a flat stomach, if cortisol is the cause of your problem. You need to get quality sleep… period.

Here are 2 simple steps you can take to get better sleep starting tonight.

• Get some room-darkening shades or put a dark blanket up over your windows—especially if you live in the city! This will ensure that you maximize melatonin (sleep hormone) production to improve the quality of sleep.

Work Out At Home

Some daily activities can be an effective form of exercise. According to the CDC, doing 30 minutes of heavy yard work (such as chopping wood or raking leaves) can burn around 220 calories. Simply walking (4.5mph) for 30 minutes can burn around 230 calories.
