A Change In Scenery III: Exercise cont. and Off Question


CharlotteVictoria

Recommended Posts

CharlotteVictoria

Hello, it's me again. I was just doing my workout routine last night when two questions had found it's way into my head, and i'd like to share them with you and get your thoughts on it as well. If that's not too much to ask. 

I. In addition to my road of getting a big butt, you may recall that i wanted a tiny waist and slim tummy. So i got to wondering, does anyone know of any good exercises that i should throw into my normal routine to help achieve this?

The off question is this:

II. As i am trying to achieve a big booty, i am aware that i will have to change out the jeans/shorts/leggings i already own (either my butt is bursting out of them or i can't get them past my thighs/butt), and purchase new ones.So my question becomes: Are there any places i can get pairs that really accentuate my butt/thighs but at an affordable price? it's well known that the average person doesn't exactly have $60-$100 just waiting to be spent. Bills, Food, Gas, etc. are a necessity you see.


I appreciate any comments, questions, and/or concerns you may post. I'm looking forward to (hopefully) some responses ^_^!!

I don't know about getting a bigger back side, but to get a trim midriff watch your diet and exercise, setups, crunchers, etc.  They will tighten things up.

 

As to clothing, you might try googling what you want and see what comes up.

Planks of the various iterations are great for core and tend to be better for the low back than sit-ups or crunches. Superman or Supergirl ? holds are good too. Diet is by far the most important for the definition. This will be tough to do if you’re also trying to build out your behind, as you’ll probably want a little fat back there to soften it. You can’t target specific areas for fat loss or distribution, just muscle growth.  Good luck, mind your form and enjoy the post exercise highs.

For a bigger butt try doing things like squats, lunges, bridges... or variations of those like burpees.

Alternatively, try riding a bike up big hills.  Its another way to work those glutes.

please forgive the near month late reply, things have been hectic Dx!

I've recently begun trying to add crunches at the end of my routine (2 sets of 30 twist crunches and normal crunches) and my lord my stomach gets so sore afterwards Dx! You're probably right about the google thing :o

In addition what i stated above about crunches, i've added planking too! I can currently hold a plank for 40 seconds (with struggle of course XD)! Is there a target time i should be holding it to get results or should i just keep adding them in tandem with crunches? When it comes to diet..i have a hard time even trying to make one, what with the little money i have and my lack of eating in general (i seriously hardly eat. I'm not underweight or anything by any means. I just dont' eat as often as i know i should). Ah, yes..the ever so difficult task of adding some fat to said booty, i'll have to probably do some research about where fat is normally stored for someone like me. Either that or get to a physician asap before trying to gain some fat on my booty xD!

I appreciate the hug, so i shall give one in return *bigger hug*

Oh trust me, i do squats. I even try to do them on my off workout days (which is hard considering my work schedule. I don't want to burn all of my energy or be ridiculously sore before work. Which is also hard trying to do so after work because i'm ridiculously sore anyway DX)! Lunges i still have a hard time trying to do, but i hear they help immensely!! As for bridges, i'll have to look that up, as i'm sure i do a variation of it. when it comes to burpees..i've not heard of those, so i'll need to look that up as well! Biking up hills huh...? Guess i should invest in a bike asap XD!

I thought I was doing myself a favor by holding a plank for up to 90 seconds.  My physical therapist, who's been terrific helping getting me back to full strength, informed me that more reps of shorter durations are more beneficial, so I've been doing 4 plank repetitions, each 30 seconds, as part of my routine.

Biking up hills

If you have access to a treadmill, many of them allow you to tilt them upward so that you're working uphill.  Or, of course, an exercise bike can be adjusted on the go so that you're pedaling with more force, simulating going uphill.

I do bridges regularly each workout, 20 per set.  Enter "bridges exercise" in Google Images for plenty of visual examples.  Here's the instructions I follow for those:  
Begin by lying with knees bent and both feet placed on the floor with arms at your sides.  Raise your hips off the surface by squeezing your gluteal muscles.  Bring the hips up to where they are in line between the knees and shoulders.  Repeat as directed. 

 

For "extra credit," I now do my bridges sets while wearing a resistance band (again, entering "bridges exercise with resistance band" in Google Images will show examples of that).

 

Sounds like you're dedicated to your exercise!  Congratulations, and best wishes!

      For years i hid and could only be myself out of town.  I was driven by a fear and shame which i am sure many feel. Coming out to my family as well as a surprisingly rural town in NJ where i have lived much of my life seemed impossible.  I used the excuse that i would hurt others and lied instead.  After finding this site, going to a gender therapist and saying a lot of foxhole prayers i took the step.  Each day, seemingly forever, i saw another person whose mouth dropped but who amazingly accepted me.  With family there were tears but time has certainly healed any hurt they (and i) felt.  I no longer lie.  For the first time in my life i have nothing to hide.  That alone has made the effort worth doing but i have the added benefit of seeing myself in the mirror, loving that person and finally finding peace.   Hugs,   Charlize

      @Willow sounds like the most effective way to handle the scenario you were in and let it flow organically.
    • Shay
      @ElizabethStar I think you had a marvelous and rewarding week. I am glad for you... You deserve it.
    • ElizabethStar
      Morning @Willow,   Missed you while you gone. I'm happy to hear things went good. Sometimes reasonably well is the best we can hope for.   I stared using my preferred name at work last week. It's nice to finally see, hear and use it.  I also outed myself and changed my name on facebook. So far it's been well received.

      I've always been into the darker things in life. The "goth" lifestyle if you will. Always wearing black, and mean everything: clothes, shoes, jewelry, nail polish, even my underclothes were black. I used it to my advantage; started mixing in an occasional piece of woman's clothing here and there. Honestly I don't think anyone noticed. All they saw was a solid black outfit. I mis-directed their attention.   I did try to always have an out if things were looking questionable. When I first started buying clothes I tried to find things that were more androgynous. That way if something was said I cloud still say I bought it in the men's department. Although I did make an effort to find the most femme men's clothing I could.  I grew my hair out and would have it in a high pony tail. When someone said something I would go into an explanation about how having a low ponytail was really uncomfortable when driving.   I played this game for about 2 years before I got tired of it and started living full time. I knew there would be comments and people would stare but I was starting to see the light. I was happy with myself and started to not care what others thought.

      Hi ladies,   i have stayed away for about three weeks.  I don’t plan on going back to read all your wonderful posts.  I’ll just restart here.   My wife and I  went to our daughters house for a few days.  While there my son and his wife came to visit too.  That made it even more special.  Since we were all going our separate ways on Friday, the kids decided to talk to me about my being transgender.  Since my relationship with my wife is rather precarious I don’t force things on her like they did.  I didn’t  mind talking to them but to do so at the expense of their mother was difficult at best.  Our daughter in law wound up leading the questions. It went reasonably well.    Willow

      You're not wrong. Peers that know what you're going through are very helpful. I can't help feeling that your sons are in good hands though.   Hugs!

      Luck! May it be everything you dreamed of!   Once the bandages come off anyway, the first week is a little rough. 😘   Hugs!

      Im trying to take one day at a time. But like I said, I have a lot of connections all around up here north because work takes me to other places and our law given breaks usally ends up on a truck stop along side of each others. So the big scare is changing the reality when so many have gotten in touch with who I am at this point. I try to tell myself that my personality and morale is still the same no mather how I look on the outside and that it these thing people like about me. Still uncertain roads to take are always scary.   Thanks everyone for such warm welcome Victoria❤

      Thankyou again everyone for your kind words. I am very happy with how it looks so far ... though I can't wait to see what it looks like with the stitches and tape removed.   It's a bit scarey ... despite having been on HRT for the past 5 months ... I feel like I've really nailed my colors to the mast now.   Im trans ... and I'm taking no prisoners!

      Every time I read something like this I just imagine how unhappy she must be. I can see no other reason for the persecution she is undertaking. It's not like she needs the money, or the fame ... it's just pure hate.   And hate usually comes from a deep unhappiness iinside one's self.    So, my plan is to just be happy. I am a transissioning transgender woman and I am happier than that spiteful petty woman.   She can keep her money. It obviously hasn't brought her happiness.

      Yes, FaceApp was pretty much what set me over the edge from 'thought CDing would be the answer til the end' to 'must transition NOW'.    Seeing 'myself' 'outside' did it. And seeing 'myself' in everyday mode as opposed to a made up for cocktail hour mode.   I use it now with the eraser function to see how the hair I'm growing out looks if my face was more feminine, do the gender swap and erase the hair it adds.

      Oh wow, that looks awesome Berni ❤️   Hugs Robin    
    • Berni
      Thanks @DeeDee. That's exactly the advice my wife has been giving me ... its nobody's business. Pretty sure I'll wear a scarf ... the stitches and tape are pretty ugly.
