There comes a time in all of our relationships, whether it’s friendships to the most serious of relationships, and sometimes family, where we have the thought of if we are on the same page, or we are ready to start on a new course. We often look for clues and suggestions from the other person because that fear of rejection can be overwhelming. Sometimes we need to step out on the limb and ask the pertinent question: Are we really at the same point?
I work out. I lift weights. I eat healthy for the most part. I started committing more time and energy in all this back in Dec of 2012. I have not kept tract of weight or inches lost but I can feel and see differences. No matter what, I try to commit at least 30 minutes a day to being active. Sometimes I hate working out, especially in the summer. It’s so hot out and I feel lazy. Who wants to exercise for an hour in this heat? Ugh.
So, I have made a conscience effort as of late to start doing more despite the weather. This new relationship has equaled me (and him actually) gaining weight. It’s disturbing how much truth there is when they say you gain “happy weight.” Who’s happy about an extra 10lbs? Ha! I’m not saying I will become a size 2 ever – it’s not going to happen on my frame BUT (butt – lol) I want to look better naked, slow down the aging process, be healthier and have more kids soon.
The only workout I do on a consistent basis is various weight lifting exercises and squats. I keep debating on joining a gym so it will help motivate me in doing more cardio but we’ll see. I might opt for different fun classes so I won’t get bored. Pilates is always a good time / serious kick in the butt and I have yet to try Zumba.
What are you doing to stay healthy?
