OK I just had to put this out here. I usually watch maybe 3 hours of television when I get home if I can. I read more magazines than anything. Why have they not shown the TRUE picture of a plus size woman. I mean EVERY model I see that are supposed to be PLUS SIZE really are not. They might be a little heavy, but not the true woman we are and see on a daily basis. I mean I have rolls and dips and hips and extra fat in palces that I think shouldn't be there, but when you see these plus size women in the magazines or on television they have NO rolls are anything. If America is not ashamed of us, then why not show us for who we really are. NOT on the news about how eating unhealthy makes you have fat in places that shouldn't be there. There are millions of women and men who exercise and eat healthy and are still plus size. Just because we are 2 digit wearers doesn't mean we are not healthy. Anywho, I just had to get that off my chest. I was really defended by that.

Well, I have to give myself some credit. My aunt had an elliptical bike that she can't use anymore due to her hurting her knee. Well, I now have it and it is in my living room. I have been trying to work out on that thing and I have to tell you one thing. THAT THING MAKES MY THIGHS HURT. lol I am already tired just after 5 mins of that thing. It is funny how you can go to the gym and work out on the elliptical machines there for 30 mins or more and it not bother you. My heart rate was already at 26 beats in 10 or was it 15 seconds. I was like "OH NOT TODAY!!" I said I will due 5 mins at a time for a total of 15 to 30 mins a day if I can. I also got myself a ABLounger and I have begun to get my workout on that. I tell you when you are on it doing them crunches. You might feel like you are not doing anything, but wait until the next day. Your core muscles are going to let you know how they feel. Well, I have been yakking enough about my new beginnings that have happened this past weekend. Trust me I will have more to talk about in the next couple of days. Chat with everyone later. Hope you enjoy my blog......
