It is amazing, as you get older how quickly you can get out of shape and how hard it is to get back on track. Back in March I began working out and watching my diet, I lost 10 pounds, was starting to feel better. I was doing yoga and we had the Wii dance game and I did that every evening. Some how I injured my shoulder, a one point I could hardly life my arm. I stopped, it was so sad I couldn’t get myself to do anything, and I ate a lot of food, crazy food, I usually never eat. In the last two months I have gained back even more weight and feel terrible, and depressed.
This week I finally started moving again. The crazy food is gone for three days so far, but it is a challenge to stay on track. Today I feel a little more like my old self, so that is a good sign, and I am writing it down so maybe I can anticipate the stress that so easily derails my plans. Exercise is something that I know I need to feel right, keeping it going is where I struggle, I have to do it now it so important.
I have been trying to get “more” fit. I can’t believe it becomes so hard as I get older. Finding a plan to stay with in a hectic, is a challenge as well as eating well. I don’t mind working out, it is just tough to fine the motivation and do enough to make a difference. I have some physical limitations so that is another issue.
I read Heidi Klum (watching Project Runway this season?) and her fitesss guru, wouldn’t that be great to have a fitness guru to keep you going and make all the food and workout plans.
Before the red thread fire, I was able to workout with the help my friends a personal trainer and a yoga instructor (we had a fitness studio upstairs) and it really made all the difference. But things have changed and people are gone from the area, so I have new focus to do things on my own and hopefully get enough movement back to be able to workout in a class or gym.
Fashion for working out is always hard, you don’t want to look like you just got out of bed when walking around your neighbor at 7:30am. I like the layers of this look, and of course Heidi Klum looks great no matter. I think I need to restyle a couple of my big baggy tees for a update.
