i think i discovered why my stomach is getting bigger no matter how much i am working out. tony and i have been going to the gym pretty steady now for about 3 months. the only results i have seem are a bit in my legs and a lot in my arms. my stomach has just gotten fatter and fatter. i run a mile and a half a day or i get on an elliptical for 45 min plus lifting weights. i just read an article about cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that is created by stress and makes the body store fat in the middle. Stress releases a higher level of cortisol in women than men. this explains some why my stomach isn't really affected by all this work. that and i am an apple shape anyway.
i hope my stress level will go down after school ends. but tony will probably be leaving so thats stress too...
