Eating my bagel


Several weeks ago my husband and I were hanging out around the fire pit in our back yard and he took a few pictures of me. I was going through the photos and came across this one....... It really bothered me. .....{that bagel right in my middle}

This photo reinforced visually what I have noticed about myself over the last few years:

~ I have become more sedentary.

~I don't feel as strong physically as I used to

~My energy levels aren't what they used to

~I became obsessed with my scale and it was creating a LOT of stress

~I noticed that I would easily slip into bouts of mild depression

~I looked and felt "squishy"

~Mentally, I was easily distracted, unfocused, and my memory sucked.

Last week I turned 46. I do not accept that just because I am getting older means that I am doomed to become "squishy".

Confession: I am not intrinsically motivated to exercise.

BUT something HAD to change!

There was NO way I was going to pay for a gym membership because I would probably go there once and just sit in the sauna and call that a workout.

I wasn't going to pay for a personal trainer either.

I HAD to kick my own ass and make this work for me........ AND I HAVE!!!

I have been consistently working out at home with zero equipment. I make it work with my schedule and time. And I love it.

I wanted to share with you all the resources that I have found and that are working for me. Best of all...... they are FREE!

This is where I started...... DARBEE - Fitness Made Easy

I added variety with THESE VIDEOS from Millionaire Hoy because some of the workouts are just 20-30 minutes and that is all the time I have.

I have been at this for a month now and have experienced noticeable changes...

~Clearer thinking and increased energy

~Better sleep

~JOY!

~Motivation to eat better without RULES

~Threw my scale away....so I can't even say that I have lost weight.... I really don't expect to as muscle weighs more than fat. My focus is on changing my body composition

~I feel stronger than I have in a long time and my balance is better

~MY BAGEL IS MELTING! yay!!!!

If you are interested, I will continue to share my experience with this as well as FREE resources for you to stay healthy and strong.

Be Well!!
