I'm going to whine today. There will be some naysayers telling me how lucky I am but today I want to whine about my weight.
I have a healthy BMI - it's 22.3 I had a BMI once in my life as 25 (
My BMI never went up until I went sedentary and did too much on line computer gaming. Don't do that anymore.) so I did make it to the "overweight" category but I started to pay attention to labels and trans fat & that went to 23.7
So it's gone down again to 22.3 since I joined SP last year. I've got a teeny Buddha belly. My body has chosen my lower abdominal area as the place to store fat. Which I think is the best place for it. I'd look pretty silly if my body stored fat in my ears.
So why am I whining? I wonder if I did more cardio would I get the beach volleyball body? Yes, yes, must do strength training too.
I wonder about putting in that effort for months and still nothing changes. If I up my activity, won't I need more energy (food) coming in? I'm 48 and wonder how long I can maintain the furious pace it'd take to get that beach body. Then to maintain it.
Guess I'm afraid to make all that effort but not SEE any noticeable difference. So should I bother "trying" to lose 8 pounds. Just work on my goal of bettering my time of jogging 5k and let the chips or pounds fall as they may... or may not.
My weight is healthy. I'm active. I'm not going to the gym everyday, don't wanna. I want to be outside too. I'll be inside long enough when winter rolls around.
So why whine? I went to Zumba class & then did yoga last night. I'm awesome!
