A New Decade for Me
Sunday, October 04, 2009
I just turned 40 years old. (Yikes...never typed that before!) I had truly hoped that my weight would be 'perfect' right now.
Alas, that is not to be. It is roughly where it was last year....after going up, down & standing still, it is where it was last year this time. HOWEVER, my health is good as is my self of being.
Yes, I'm concerned, but now I'm more realistic about it. I will NEVER be 135lbs as my doctor's wall chart keeps telling me. I am NOT built for that. I have hips & thighs that literally will not get me into the 130's..unless I cut them off. And THAT'S not gonna happen!
I'm building muscles & my cardio function is good. My cholesterol & blood pressure numbers are also good.
Still of course working on the weight...but living my life at the same time.
In fact, next week this time, I'll be in Jamaica on the beach in a bathing suit relaxing...and to be honest, I know I won't be feeling self conscious [well not as much as before!!]
And yes, I'll be going for early morning jogs on the beach...I'm actually looking forward to those 'sandy jogs'..and relaxing with 'adult beverages' after.
Ah yes...getting older is not as bad as I thought!
