Reading for Fitness and Other Stuff
Thursday, May 02, 2013
I am reading two books, just started them. One is New Rules for Weightlifting for Women and the other is Two week Turnaround.
I think I maybe making changes in my lifting in the next few weeks... depends on what kind of equipment it calls for. I like my routine now because it only requires dumbbells.
The other book I may try starting next week as I am really anxious to drop a chunk of weight!
We are going for a weekend mini vaca in a few weeks and I want to feel good in my clothes and hopefully if the weather is as nice as it is today, I can wear dresses.
Last year at this time I wore dresses and had that horrendous thigh rub. I do not ever want to experience that again.
I could kick myself in the butt for ever letting my weight backslide. I was almost down to a size 10 about 5 years ago. I worked so hard to get there and then i let it slide.
Why do we do that to ourselves? Why is it so hard to commit to taking care of yourself forever and not just till the weight comes off?
So many of us let life get us sidetracked but if we had kept up on our care we probably could of handled the turns and twists with even more confidence and positive attitude.
I know when I am working out my attitude and mood is way better, though my kids might disagree...but that's a whole other story. In fact when I think about it, the stress going on in our house with 3 teenagers and all the hormones flying around, if I weren't working out I would probably be stress eating and finding a way to justify it. But instead I work out, am watching what I eat and how much and at the end of the day i crawl into bed and smile coz I don't feel guilty!
