Will Not Cry about 40

I am a late 30's mom, teacher, wife: I like to blog, read, and have a clean house. I write to know who I am.
I have always been thiner, but the flab is getting the best of my zipper. I have never been athletic or successful in the weight-loss/size area.

I finally hate skinny. Strong is the new skinny.


I know what I believe in and can't be shaken. Yet, I know that my set of beliefs are ever changing: some for the more conservative and some just more ...

I know what I believe in and can't be shaken. Yet, I know that my set of beliefs are ever changing: some for the more conservative and some just more accepting of the wide range of others out there in our wide world.

I hate good Christians who are so good that they judge others who are not like them. I grew up being judged for believing differently, although I am in the majority where I am now, I still haven't forgotten those life lessons.

Even though I fit the demographics of most people who spark, I am not the same.
Secretly I want to look good in nothing but high heels and stay that way for years to come. I want to buy clothes that are too young for my age just because I can. I want to outrun all my students during PE classes.

Don't get me wrong, Yes, I want to be healthy when I am old- who wants to sit in dr's offices, and take a million pills. Who wants to feel like crap when you make the most amount of money so you can't take advantage of the fun you can afford?

I watch those who have been examples to me growing up stalling in their journey through life. I will not be one like that.

I want to FINALLY be beautiful in my own eyes.

Hey there! Thanks for the blog comment! As for advice, I'd say check out my blogs, especially this one: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j
ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=3719331

and this one: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j
ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=3689236

They both describe my current workout program, which is a LOT less of a time investment than P90X was. (Although I am still grateful for all P90X did for me, there was no way I could realistically maintain that kind of exercise schedule without the rest of my life suffering from neglect).

As for eating tips - I am actually such a "weird" eater, that I couldn't give advice to a "normal" person on eating. LOL The three things I do that seem to work for me are alternating higher-calorie days with lower calorie days, starting every day with Shakeology, and drinking like 12 glasses of water per day.

Hi there! I'm sorry you're battling those 20 pounds. It's great that you've made the exercise part a habit! It took me a LONG time to do that. I do believe that 80% or more of weight loss comes from diet rather than exercise though. If you follow the Spark recommendations for calories, weigh and/or measure all of your food and keep a food log, you should drop those 20 pounds in no time. I'm POSITIVE that most of my success comes from keeping a very accurate food log. I don't just guess how many calories something has--I look up everything and weigh all of my food. It takes some work, but eventually it'll come naturally and you'll be fast at it :)
