Good-bye muffin top
I have never been on a sports team, and was always picked last during gym class in grade school.
Most of my exercise is, “I use to.”
I use to walk everyday, I use to do Body Pump, I use to not have to wear Spanx to fit into my Christmas dress.
My fitness plan is to walk everyday for 365 days, starting tomorrow, and start taking Body Pump classes again. My goal is to lose the 8 pounds that make all of my jeans not fit, and gave me a muffin top.
My mind-set is what I want to change. I don’t want to be an old lady with a gut, and I don’t want to be weak. I can not do even one pull up.
My dream? To be able to do five pull ups.
And one day I would like to enter a body building fitness competition for senior women.
I don’t know anything about how to get strong. First I will just start.
Start before you are ready.
I don’t eat any sugar or wheat, but I overdo it on strawberries and home-made whipped cream, (without sugar or vanilla).
Tonight I did a short brisk walk with Martha, my dog. Perhaps we will both lose a few pounds.
You don’t have to run everyday, or walk a mile everyday, you just need to walk every day. It could be for one mile, it could be around the block, or it might only be as far as the end of your driveway and back. (You can start when you read this, or start on January first, or start on February 2nd, just start.)
I will be creating a private facebook group, Walk 365 for 2014. You can reply to this email if you are a subscriber to my blog, or send me your email address: [email protected] (dot) com. and I will add you to the facebook group.
And you don’t have to be perfect to be in this facebook group. If you miss a day, just keep on going and walk the next day. Lets get healthy and walk. All around the world, Lets Do It!
Do you have a plan to get healthy? Please tell me in the comments. I would love to encourage you.
p.s. You don’t have to post a picture of your muffin top to be in the private facebook group.
