Change of focus

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Ok, I'll admit, I'm lazy. I am not a 'diet' person, I am a 'cleanse' person. I look for the easy way out. I love thinking about food. Good food, bad food, everything in between. I love the Food Network. I hate thinking about losing weight. Maybe it's because I grew up with my mom constantly asking if she looked big in this or that. Now, I get it. I was a skinny mini, a gidget, someone who never worried or cared about eating (just like my mom was). I often forgot to eat. After having my babies, all of that changed. Now it's an issue. Now, I care.

I decided to start exercising. I did Moms & Tots bootcamp after my first born. Soon found out I was pregnant with twins. After they were born, I tried to go back but my body was so abused. I was forced to rest (3 sprains in my right ankle kinda forced me to). Then I discovered Pilates. I love Pilates. It was very frustrating in the beginning, as all new things are. I decided to forget about dieting for a few months. I needed to build strength to keep up with my kidlets. (Let's be clear, I didn't pig out or anything, just stopped thinking night & day about it). I started Booty Barre in the Fall. It is awesome. It's a combo of ballet barre, pilates & yoga. It's the best of both worlds for me, cardio & strengthening. My ankle has mended, my back is strong, my abs are coming back. I haven't felt this good in years.
I am a different person than I was this time last year. I am looking forward to seeing where I will be next year. At some point soon, I will weigh myself & focus on caloric intake again, but not today.
