What many fail to realize...

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Is that for me, it's not about losing weight. It's about being healthy and strong, and being so when I'm 90. It's about avoiding heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, etc. It's about being able to climb a mountain and see three states with just the turn of my head. It's about walking through 120 degree temps to see the Taj Mahal. It's about saying "sure, I'll do that with you!" and then figuring out HOW.

It's knowing that we only get a century to do everything we want to do and I am not going to waste a bit of it.

    Well good lord I'm having an emotional day .. cuz this just totally made me cry.. it is soooo true.. and Jeckie? once you hit 50 that clock that says HURRY you're running out of time QUIT F'ING WASTING IT! really kicks in, ya know?

One of my reasons for LOVING squats so much is that I know it's the #1 thing I can do to ensure I don't end up in a nursing home with other people washing me and a total loss of my independence.. cuz if you can't get yer butt out of a chair, well.. off you go! and to those who say you can't squat?? how the heck do you go to the bathroom?? cuz everytime you sit on the dad gum terlit you're squatting! lord, I'm fired up! I think I'll go do some squats!

I will totally walk through the 120 degree heat to the Taj Mahal.. when we goin? hehe

DREAM BIG.. and then WORK HARD to make those dreams reality..

Loved this blog.. love love love!

    *this* is why I put away my scale. it was actually sabotaging me. I want to be able to focus on being strong and happy, the scale was hindering that. Cheers to our one century. :)

    agreed. i do tend to focus on the scale as a measurement of whether all of this is "working," but the changes that REALLY matter are to my cardiovascular health, to my abdominal fat accumulation and waist-to-hip ratio, my bone density and my vitamin and macronutrient levels and glowing skin and shiny hair. i won't deny that the side effect of building myself a luscious booty isn't one i'll kick out of bed, though.

here's to our health!

    I couldn't agree with you more. It is exactly why I finally realized I had to get real and stop just thinking about it. I need to live a long healthy life so I am able to take care of my granddaughter with autism. The longer I stay healthy, the longer I am able to keep from having to put her in a home.
