Here We Go Again With Those Mila Kunis Pregnancy Rumors!Read More
My kingdom for a tighter tummy! Many a new mom has uttered those words (okay, something like those words) as she glances down at her postbaby belly. Even if you’ve reached your prepregnancy weight, chances are your still dealing with a little extra belly fat after pregnancy. Don’t ignore it: Without concentrated effort (like some tummy exercises after pregnancy) those ab muscles are bound to stay saggy (and get worse with baby number two).
Now’s the time to get those muscles taut and toned by integrating a targeted tummy routine into your exercise plan. Not only will strengthening your abs help your profile, it’ll improve circulation and reduce your risk of back problems (including postpartum back pain), varicose veins, leg cramps, ankle and foot swelling, and more.
Tip 1: Keep It Simple
There are lots of tummy exercises after pregnancy that will help you flatten the flab. Basic crunches may be the most, well, basic, but they work. If you haven’t done them before (or in the past nine months or so), start slowly and don’t push yourself too hard. Begin with pelvic tilts and simple ab contractions: Lie down on your back with your knees bent, feet on the floor. Slowly tighten your abs and tilt your pelvis toward your head. Tighten the pelvic floor as you do this (what a great time for some Kegel exercises!).
Tip 2: The Real Deal
Ready for real crunches? With your back on the floor, put your feet on the floor, knees bent, and place your hands behind your neck to support your head. Press your lower back into the floor, then lift your head and shoulders off the ground. Repeat 10–15 times. As you get stronger, add difficulty (lift your feet off the floor during reps, for example) and variations (like tilting your legs to the side and reaching for the opposite knee as you come up to tone the oblique muscles on the sides of your torso). Working different muscles is essential for losing that belly fat after pregnancy.
Tip 3: Recruit an Exercise Buddy
If you like, you can get your baby into the act, too! Blast your baby fat after pregnancy with a baby bench press: Lie down with legs bent and feet flat on the floor, holding your baby so he’s resting on your belly. Inhale and lift your baby skyward, pulling in and contracting your abs at the same time; then exhale and lower your baby. Do as many reps as you can. (Get more tips for exercising with baby).
Tip 4: Stay on the Ball
An exercise ball is another great tool for tummy exercises after pregnancy. Ball crunches work like regular crunches, but you’ll be adding the element of balance, which makes your moves a bit more challenging. If crunches just aren’t your thing or you want more of an overall workout, try yoga or Pilates, both of which place an emphasis on a strong core. Oh, and don’t forget — a sensible diet (like the Postpartum Diet) and regular cardio exercise will help you burn belly fat after pregnancy (and overall fat, too).Read More
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Adele is pregnant.
And EW would like to send her and her boyfriend Simon Konecki our sincere congratulations! We’re pretty sure that you crazy kids will be great parents.
Thanks to her album’s continued success and her vocal surgery, it’s been too long since we’ve been treated to new material from the chart queen. Her just-announced oven-bun only means that we’ll just have to wait even longer.
Since we’re jonesing Adele addicts, that simply will not do. So, as an appetite-whetting exercise, we peered into our crystal ball to find out what songs she’ll be delivering from the studio once she’s done delivering from the maternity ward. Here are our ten best guesses:
What other puns did we come up with? Head on over to EW.com and see.Read More
Jessica revealed the sex of her baby! “She.” Plus, she talks about the tabloids and her body.
On hopes for her daughter’s sense of style: “Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she blurts out, her Dallas accent swooping back in this moment of heightened anxiety. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”Read More
Justin Bieber’s girlfriend of eight months, Selena Gomez, has broken up with him in the wake of a paternity lawsuit that alleges the pop star impregnated another woman during a backstage tryst.
A source close to the pair told RadarOnline.com exclusively: “Selena ended it abruptly. She broke the news to Justin just in the past 24 hours.”
The insider said Gomez, 19, is facing resistance from the teen idol’s camp who want her to stand by him.
“His camp is in damage control mode and attempting to convince her to stick around in the relationship for a few more weeks, because they fear it will be seen as an admission that something indeed took place between Justin and the woman who is alleging that he’s the father of her baby,” the source added.
“Justin has insisted to Selena that the woman’s allegations are simply not true.”
Gomez or Bieber’s reps have yet to respond to RadarOnline.com’s request for comment.
In a live interview on Friday, Bieber, 17, was evasive when asked about how Gomez was coping after Los Angeles police nabbed a man accused of stalking her.
When asked if she was freaked out by it, Bieber appeared to be removed from the situation, telling the interviewer: "I’m sure she is but she’s got good people around her and she, she’s always staying safe."
As Star magazine exclusively reported, 20-year-old Mariah Yeater is asking a California court to force Bieber to "undergo a paternity test to scientifically confirm that he is in fact that father of my baby" and "provide adequate support for my baby."
UPDATE: Justin just tweeted a link to Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean'…Read More
