Must come down.
Then up again.
It’s very hard to try and navigate the healthy living waters in this day and age. As a girl who has struggled with a porr body image all her life it’s been pretty difficult to find a place that is healthy and sane. I’m a curvy girl. I will always be a curvy girl. There is no way I will ever be that body ideal the press likes to foist on us as the right way to look. I don’t believe that’s true anyhow. People are awesome just as they are. Not surprisingly though it’s easier to like other people’s bodies than my own.
See? I have already fallen into the body trap. It’s not about size. It’s about health. It should always be about health and size is not indicative of health. So this week I start a new journey to health. It’s time. Instead of the usual stats I am going to try my measurements. Right now they are 44-37-46. My cholesterol is normal as is my glucose levels. However I have noticed I am out of breath sooner than I should be. This means stamina, muscle mass keeping my energy levels up are on my goal list.
Normally I am an all or nothing type gal. (Scorpios are like that you know) Instead of throwing myself into this, not being able to keep up the intense pace and giving up this time we are going to set smaller goals. This week- three days of yoga, two of hiking, blog all my food and NOT step on the scale every day. Yeah. Not weighing myself is a goal. It’s got to be.
One step at a time.
