I went out last Friday with my friends and one of them asked how my workouts are going (Note: these friends aren't really into exercising). So, I said you know I finished Insanity despite all my wounds --my wound on my palm, elbow and bumps here and there. This other friend said why do you do those things anyway. And I said because my stomach is getting big and I have events to go to. I want to look good.
Then they said you know you just have to accept that at our age, it will be harder and harder. So we just have to accept that our bodies grow as we age. Then this friend says, oh you just want to be ARM CANDY for your husband. So, what if I want to look good at events I need to attend.
Then, I told my kids and my husband. They said, what friends! My husband said their way of thinking is exactly why people are overweight. Just accepting without any action.
It is a good thing I have friends in Spark who push me to work at it. I guess my last ranting and this one makes me work more just to show them, see!
I will work harder than ever! I got so irritated with their comments. This is actually the first time I heard of negative stuff about working out. I guess some people say stuff without really thinking. I just felt bad to hear this from my friends.
I'll show them!!!!
