Get Cut in the Kitchen
I recently discovered that I can fit into my sister in law’s clothing. This may not sound like a big deal in and of itself, but I used to wear a size 16 and I recently put on my sister in law’s size 4 black dress. Yes, it was totally snug and I would have to remain standing in it at all times, but still, I put on a size 4 dress and zipped it up. My niece even commented on my appearance in it, “You have such a nice flat stomach for that dress.”
This is of course, not entirely true. The dress had a nice cut to it. But I have also been working out. In the kitchen.
You read that right. In the kitchen.
About a month ago, I learned that GE started a “Strong as Steel” program, which is an exercise routine you can do in your kitchen with your kitchen appliances. Why spend money on some huge piece of exercise equipment that takes up space (and, if you’re lazy, eventually collects dust and serves as a testament to your laziness) when you can just use your oven, fridge, dishwasher, etc.
Here’s a video to explain it:
Now, when I first watched the above video, I admit, I laughed a lot. It seemed so silly. Plus, there’s something unnerving about recommending workouts for weight loss/body toning in the kitchen. But, I’m game for trying things out and I figured, if it worked, then I’d benefit, and if it didn’t, I’d be able to write something rude and funny about it.
And for real, it works. I’ve been doing these “Get Cut in Your Kitchen” exercises for 3 weeks now, and you can tell a difference. After all, teenage girls are telling me that I have a nice flat stomach…
I’m sure you want to see a before and after shot, but I’m waiting for that size 4 dress to go from “too snug” to “just right.” Just a few more weeks with my dishwasher perhaps…
