I reached the end of the Slendertone Abs 30 day challenge and promptly failed to write about it. Partly due to illness, partly due to having to endlessly tell every bloke who found out I was using a Slendertone, no you can’t attach it to your willy, yes it actually says that in the instructions (well it mentions genitals but what else could they mean?)
This year I have been “not dieting” hard, as it says in my previous blog post, but to be honest I’ve always found weight loss isn’t the be all and end all. I’ve always had a pseudo paunch even when I’ve been lighter because I’ve always had exactly no stomach muscle definition. If you remember that episode of the Simpsons where Homer relaxes his stomach muscles a few times and his gut hangs out even further, that’s not me, my default state is even further. When I started the Slendertone 30 day abs challenge, I could barely do a sit up without having some sort of muscular spasm but by the end of it, and continuing, I can now reach respectable double figures without my colon trying to escape and strangle passers by.
Trousers that I couldn’t even wear at the start of the year now need and belt and in one instance I can’t wear them as the catch wont stay fastened. I think the Slendertone Abs is at bare minimum at least partially responsible for this. I can now relax my tummy muscles and something happens!
But don’t just take my word for it, take the word of this dashingly handsome chap:
