Turbo Healthy Lifestyle
Wednesday, August 12, 2015
After a chair breaking while sitting in it (not even moving) on my last vacation (is there a hybrid word for vacation and misery?), I'm really thinking about things again. Not that I think it broke b/c I'm so big or anything, because I'm big, but not big enough to break a wooden chair if it's sturdy. But it did get me thinking.
I have exactly 5 weeks before I have to sit in an airplane seat for 5 hours. The last time I flew, I was cursing my size because I had to lean down to the underseat storage multiple times per hour to keep my son entertained and fed enough to not cause a major disturbance on the flight. Every single time I had to get something I cursed my lack of fitness and my belly obstacle (it's the main obstacle to my comfort when bending over). So...I've got 5 weeks.
Now, as you probably already know, I'm not at all about dieting, rather just trying to live in a healthy way that will let the weight take care of itself. So, I'm still not really going to be dieting, but trying to sort of intensify the healthy eating for the next 5 weeks. I want to work on:
and yes, size
I'd like to just be more comfy in that airline seat.
So you're going to see more comments from me in that vein, while still trying to balance the rest of my life. But I hope to walk with more frequency and intensity, do more strength training days, and stretch at least 3 body parts each night. My eating needs to be more about my stomach (eating only when actually hungry) and less about my emotional state or opportunistic eating (it's there, it's open, grab a small bit vs. no, I'm not really hungry, I can eat that when I am hungry later if that's what I'm actually hungry for then).
So, minor adjustments (I believe) that should equal a bit better fitness when I have to park my bottom in that teeny tiny airline seat, and bend over again and again to retrieve stuff.
