Analogy

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I always said my 20s were like an "extended adolescence" because I was still figuring things out and, let's face it, my awkward period never fully ended.

It occurred to me yesterday that I feel like I'm in the 3rd go-round for adolescence: the way my body is changing due to age. I gain weight faster, I have little aches and pains. Catering to how my body reacts to things NOW is more helpful than either pretending nothing's happening or trying to make it react like it used to (not that that's even possible).

    My best friend and I just laugh at the fact that the day we turned 30 our bodies started falling apart. I always thought the whole age thing was a myth, but nope. It's so real. :(

    You're making a huge difference by taking care of yourself now. You'lll fare much better than your peers like me who just sort of gave up. These days I see old people and obese people and old obese people, and I vow no to be like that.

    You are doing great!

    Age is crazy... The older I get the faster the years are going... I will be 24 this year... Not that I'm complaining it's just hard to wrap my head around that. I am not where I thought I would be at this age. Some is my doing some is others. And I noticed that I can't do what I used to, my body is a little worn. But we need to own it and listen to our bodies...

    Do the best you can in the moment. I raise my water glass to the success of how well you can cater yourself to meet your goals. emoticon
