Today’s Thoughts on 39 post is sponsored by Slendertone Abs Belt.
That’s what the commercial boasts. I’m willing to give it a shot. After three pregnancies, one being a multiple birth, and three c-sections later, I’ve got nothing to lose. I am also embarking on my journey to 39, which means 40 is looming over my head like a distant, yet attainable (and unavoidable) goal. I have dedicated the first 6 months of 2014, which also happen to be the last 6 months of me being 38, into redesigning myself with a new outlook, amazing energy and the best physique I can possibly obtain. If you know anything about me, you know that I eat as clean as possible ala my recent juice cleanse, and will do just about anything to avoid plastic surgery. Don’t get me wrong, I have not completely ruled out a tummy tuck, but as I mentioned, I have had three c-sections and that is some serious pain and recovery time. I’ve also been told tummy tucks are more painful than c-sections to recover from, so I’m dedicating these last, well, 16 months, to whittle down that waist as far as it will go before I make my decision. The opportunity to gain tighter abs in 45 days with Slendertone Abs Belt came at the perfect time.
Laugh if you must, but honestly, I’m really interested to see if it works. Since my twins were born, I have tried everything fitness related to get my stomach muscles back from the land of mush into something I can press on and feel at least a slight bit of resistance. Before the boys I was probably in the best shape I had been in since my wedding day, and high school before that. After my twins, I tried everything from running, walking, yoga, pilates, barre, personal trainers, cross fit, and cross training. Nothing I have found reaches into those tiny muscles that were destroyed during those child bearing months. I’m hoping the Slendertone Abs Belt will be the start of first, finding those muscles, then helping me develop them into firmer abs. Here’s how the Slendertone Abs Belt works:
Now, I’m not going to be silly enough to think that just by wearing this belt the recommended three daily 20-minute sessions 5 times a week will result in super model status, although, that would be optimal. I have also committed myself to eating healthier and working out 60 minutes a day, 5 times a week- not including the sessions I do with the belt. I really want it to work, so am going to follow protocol and do the 6 week session. I’ll be posting as I go along, and hope you follow along in my journey to better abs. It’s also just not about looking good for me. The core supports your entire body. By getting that muscle strength back I know it will only help in my journey to be ready for my 40s with more energy and power. I’ve got to start somewhere, mine as well #StartHere with Slendertone Abs Belt.
Thank you Slendertone Abs Belt for sponsoring today’s post and supporting my goals to a better belly by 40!
Can’t wait to see your thought on the results!

Love the #StartHere campaign 🙂 Great advice for anyone, no matter your goal.. today is a great day to start! I haven’t tried the slendertone abs belt and am curious as to the benefits and results.. I need to follow up with you to find out the results!
You never know until you try something…and just because it may not have worked for other people…doesn’t mean it can’t work for you. I had tons of people laugh at me for using the Hip Hop Abs DVDs.
While I only got what looked like a 2-pack out of the deal (so what), it turned out to be a very good all-around cardio boost that toned more than just my abs….and it was fun to do, and time flew by.
Now, the Shakeweight was a different story. Had to find that out for myself, and that was a dud…that almost caused an injury to my neck.

Yes please! you had me at tighter abs! loved reading about this exciting product!
I know some people who use this belt for their abs, though they already were slim, I did notice that their abs were developed.. and must be supported by exercise and diet, like real diet., but won’t it have any side effects? because you’d be exposed to electric charges or something?

Very interesting. I always wonder if these have any benefits or not.
You still need a great diet program to see the result.
