Oh No!!! I have become one of those people.


Sunday, February 24, 2013

I used to think that people who ate healthy and liked to exercise were some mutant breed with special genes that I would never have. But who knew I have become one of those people. I haven't missed a workout in 2013. I love working out, I look forward to it daily. With my newly discovered uplifiting sports bra, I realize I can jump, run do plyometrics and can do high intensity workouts.I can do things at soon to be 47 that I couldn't do in junior high. I started doing Turbo Fire and can't wait for my next workout, The more I challenge myself the more I discover I am capable of doing more than I ever thought. The only thing holding me back was ME and my negative self talk. Today I weighed in at 158.93 pounds, I haven't been below 160# in almost 5 years.As I continue on my journey of self discovery. I realized who you were in the past does not dictate who you will be today or can become tomorrow. You have the keys to change and shape your own destiny. I am becoming the person I always wished that I could be and it feels amazing. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Congrats on getting under that 160 number. Great that self challenges are leading to higher and higher goals. [Or maybe you had an alien gene transfer.]

    Your title made me think of the song, "we are the people our parents warned us about!" Sounds like you are making great progress, keep it up!

    Yes - it is so amazing when you find yourself feeling stronger and more capable than when you were younger. Exercise - and eating healthy - where were you all my life? I love it - congratulations on all you have accomplished!

I think I am a hybrid...half healthy and the other half still loves french fries!

And yes, the right sports bra makes all the difference. I used to think I couldn't run...it's downright painful with the wrong apparel! I was fortunate to find the right thing, in my size, online.

Congrats on making the choice to be healthy and fit! Wishing you continued success in your journey.

    I used to make fun of people like that - now too I am becoming one of them - eating healthy making sure I just don't sit on my butt all day - and I am loving it also

    That's awesome! I'm afraid that I have become one of "those people", too, and I couldn't be happier about it. Especially with *my* new sports bra that I don't have to worry about the excessive bounce! It's freeing and satisfying. While I may never be athletic, I am now a person who prefers to move!

    Great blog!

Me too! My extended family classifies me as "one of those people." I now take it as a great compliment.... even though they mean it as an insult.
