I’m a piece of meat. A fat, juicy, thick side of beef; the kind your cardiologist warned you about. What once was a stripper body is now a (soon to be) 42-year-old thick mass of loveliness. I’m sick of meat.
I went shopping for clothes today.
They are making the clothes so tiny now
2, 2, 4, 2, 2…F*ck
I need to get back to the gym
It wasn’t fun. What it was – was a wake up call to my former (fit) self.
Today’s shopping experience gave me the kind of message that makes you state really important vows like: “I am going to stop the emotional eating, stop making excuses not to work out, stop thinking I am just a PMS cycle away from my skinny jeans. And this time, I mean it.”
We are all guilty of self-sabotage – ways to break us –  even more than life does on its own. So why do we do this? I’m no therapist, but I can tell you for me, it’s a way to beat me to the punch of failure.
Some of us are so used to failing, we forget to give ourselves permission to win. 
Time to turn things around. How cool that I have the power to do that. 
What about you? Anything you want to turn around that you haven’t given yourself permission to (because you forgot you have the power to change it)? 
Re-wiring our brains isn’t easy, but it can be done.

  1. ChristineWalk, that's all you have to do. No gym, no equipment. Throw on some shoes. Start out with a mile. Don't skip a day. No excuses. In a week, make it 2 miles, and so on. I am up to 6 miles a day now, doing the above. With a torn meniscus. No running, walking. Accept my challenge. An I Pod of some sort is a must. Music will disguise the effort. I know you are very busy. Pick a time when you are not. It takes me about 20 minutes to walk a 1 1/2 miles. I do not race the clock, if it takes longer or shorter, I don't care. If I had to run, I would have run 100 feet and gone home. When you finish, take a quick nap. But the funny thing is as you walk more, you will nap less.And for your ass…ha ha…!!

  2. Thanks RJ! I have a special foot issue so walking more than a few steps is rough (broken/arthritic sesamoid) but I have taken to bike riding and I love it! I just can't put ANY pressure on the ball of my right foot. Sure makes you appreciate our working parts!
