It’s time…. this is how I roll … I work out, eat healthy… all gung ho and then…. I let it slide a little… then a little bit more …. until I just stop…. I’m ok with that as long as I never completely stop, give up or throw in the towel.
I am 48 and I’m healthy ish…. I’m sure I could be better… but I’m ok with me, but I know when it’s time to get moving, cut out the bad stuff like bread, cookies and second helpings. I don’t weigh myself because I know when clothes aren’t fitting right and I have a war with my jeans just to get them zipped and I opt for yoga pants….. or I’m sluggish and I just don’t feel good.
I’m not a super athlete, or body builder because that’s just not my thing…I’m an artist who gets distracted easily, who meanders through art magazines for hours, who gets all wonky about a new technique or an idea for a piece of art, who loves to have drinks and food with her girlfriends and laugh for hours…... but I know when I need to take care of myself …. so that I can take care of everything else. Getting some exercise, losing a few pounds, and putting healthy stuff in my body make me feel good “literally”. I have more energy, I’m more focused and creative and I’m happier… which makes everyone around me happy! I do this for me, because I know it makes me better at everything.
So off to the gym I go…..
Take care a your self today, make it fun, and you will feel the difference.
