'other' Muffin Top
I've tried 'sucking in my stomach' to minimize/eliminate it. Works for about 15 seconds.
I've bought larger size pants with 'high rise' but that just means my waist has moved up to my lower rib cage...not an attractive look for a middle-age guy...and it would only get worse.
I've gone to bulky sweaters. That works well in the winter but not so cool in the summer. Especially now that the hot, humid weather and temperatures have arrived with a vengeance in Toronto.
Am I finally past the stage of running tights? Running shorts: that option is even less attractive! Unless I run at 3 am in the morning under cover of the dark, the Fashion Police will haul me in for sure.
Maybe I finally have to embrace weight training. Yuck!
Dare I say ask the question, "Is my Muffin Top here to stay?" Say it ain't so!! I'm not ready to give up just yet. I have 5 months until bathing suit weather in Negril at Reggae Marathon. "Gravity...and age...you haven't won just yet!
So here's the plan: eliminate the salty snacks and junk food (including diet pop), smaller portion sizes, reduce alcohol, keep running.

Until next time...
