I miss my pre-pregnancy body. There. I said it. I’m tired of hearing people say “but wasn’t she worth it?” Yes, of course I love my daughter but am I wrong for missing my old tummy and belly button? Now, I never had a six pack or even the flattest of abs but how I wish I had my old abs back. I’ve lost almost all of the pregnancy weight – the last five pounds have been lingering and I got lazy. Since I had a c-section no matter how much I worked out, no amount of ab exercises helped – I couldn’t feel my abs. That was until I received the Mama Mio Bootcamp Tummies Skincare & Exercise System.
When I was offered a free kit to try out, I jumped at the chance. I was willing to try anything that would get my tummy back to the way it was. The Mama Mio Bootcamp Tummies Skincare & Exercise System includes Skin Tight Toning Serum, Get Waisted Cream and 4 minute tummy-tucking exercise programme by ab rehab guru, Julie Tupler. You are supposed to follow the steps for 30 days (applying the cream and doing the ab exercises) and see results. When I apply the serum and cream I definitely feel a tingly sensation which makes me feel like something is happening – which is a good thing. The cream is supposed to last 30 days but the supply is so generous it’s lasted well more than 30 days. It’s actually lasted me at least 3 months which is nice because at $99 for the set, it doesn’t make it seem that expensive if you know you’ll get a lot of use out of it.
My favorite part of the set is the exercise programme by Julie Tupler – the creator of the Tupler technique to treat Diastasis Recti (separation of the outermost abdominal muscles during pregnancy). Her ab exercises were the first ones where I actually felt a difference in my abs. It’s been very slow going but I am seeing small improvements in my abs.
I think the Mama Mio Bootcamp for Tummies Skincare & Exercise kit is a great addition to any woman’s workout arsenal. While I was using the kit I was also running, working out with free weights and eating healthy. It’s not a miracle cream – I don’t have my pre-pregnancy abs – but I definitely think it’s helping me get there. It’s much cheaper than a tummy tuck and won’t leave any scars!
