  • Run farther, and try intervals. Can be as simple as just picking up your pace for 30 sec then backing off, then picking it back up. Repeat up to 6 times. Cut your carbs but not your calories. Eat healthy fats, raw nuts lots of green leafy vegs

  • Those ab muscles got stretched waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out ;-). Don't beat yourself up, it takes a while for the elasticity and strength to come out. Core workouts are best, so if you were already a runner, by all means, keep running, but walking can give you the same benefits. Also, Yoga and Pilates will work those core abdominals--ALL of them. Flat tummies also have to do with your diet, so lean protein, whole grains, veggies and WATER. Good luck!

  • Run for longer and slowly. Like an hour run slowly will get your body into fat burning mode.
