Self-congratulations Friday

Friday, October 04, 2013

On most days, I do aerobic weight training (aka FIRM-style workouts) and the other "work days" I do some form of aerobics (I love step training). I also move around a lot more than I used to. Even though my BMI is still considered in the obese category, I am an energy-filled, happier shadow of my former self, ready to continue towards my future. I love being strong. Yay me! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have good muscle tone, improved cardio capacity, better mood...well the list goes on and on...

Still (and always) working toward a truly healthful relationship with food. This has proven to be much more challenging for me. With all due respect to my mom, I was taught extreme methods of calorie restriction (and then the binges that so often are the result) and perfectionism as a lifestyle. Unfortunately, mom still sees this "all or nothing" approach as the way to go, and so I don't share much of my healthy success with her, and this still confuses her. Oh well, I need to take care of me and she needs to take care of her. I wish her luck.

I wish you all luck, too! WE CAN DO THIS!!!

    Yup, I seem to have the activity level down pat... but it is food I struggle with. My last blogs I need to re-read because I think I am figuring things out. I just have to watch that I'm not too hard on myself. Change for me is small with a goal of consistency. Otherwise I yoyo. I never want to diet again! Maybe I should print out my blog thoughts and put them on my fridge!

    Your mom sounds like my mom!

    Gotta tell you, between strong and thin, I'd rather be strong. I want to vacuum my floors when I turn 80!!

    And it sounds like you've chosen a slow and steady, healthful approach to eating. As someone who has seen and done it all, that's the best. You know you don't need Mom's approval for that? I know that my Mom (if she was still with us) would go nuts if she could see the way I eat.
