Belly Pudge

I'm 5'4 and weigh 150. It's the most I've weighed since my pregnancy almost 3 years ago. Since my new job 8 months ago I've gained a belly pudge that I've never really had before, and I was wondering if there were any good ways to tone that down? Would downloading a yoga app be worth it?

While crunches will help strengthen your muscles, they aren't going to do a lot to get rid of the pudge. Yoga is excellent for that, as is Pilates.  You can download a yoga app or check out videos on YouTube.  You can also buy relatively inexpensive yoga DVD's.  Unless you know how to do it, opt for the beginners videos/dvd's.

My favorite yoga is Biggest Loser, Yoga for Weight Loss.  I've got to get back to doing it regularly.  Don't worry if you can't keep up right away; you'll work into it.

Try crunches instead. They work to strengthen abdomen walls.
Work your way up to around 200 repetitions per session. That should cure the belly bump blues.
