Big Women DO WorkOut
By KymBozarth on March 15, 2013
I am usually very comfortable in my body, in my skin.
But something inside of me was changing, I did not like the way I was feeling. Outwardly I felt fine, I look fine.
Inwardly, I did not feel fine.
I felt lethargic, unmotivated, my self esteem low and slightly depressed.
Why? I like me, I like who I am, proud of myself, my accomplishments, my Deaf life, my family etc...but something was not right. Could not put my finger on it.
I look at myself in the mirror and realize I THINK I am healthy because I am fat and my doctor tells me my tests are fine. But inside my body I do not feel fine. I feel wrong. I feel off.
I do not feel BODY POSITIVE. I was posting recently about feeling FAT and BODY POSITIVE. But I was not being truthful.
I am not healthy.
The wife and I join gym recently. I had my BMI (Body Mass Index), weight, flexibility, strength and measurements taken. I am 45 but have inside body of 54 year old woman! NO NO NO! I do not want that. I want to be 45 inside and outside.
In my past I have made many difficult changes. I have done things most people might not have been able to do and for that I am proud of myself, I have come a very long way.
I believe becoming healthy in mind and body is my last personal hurdle. And I am determined to do this.
Will I be skinny? NO. Do I want to be skinny? NO.
I want to lose weight. YES. I want be healthy. YES.
My plan is follows:
1. Weight Training 3 times a week
2. Aquatics class 3x a week
3. Yoga 2x a week
4. Cardio 5 to 6x a week
I have changed my eating lifestyle. I will not bore with details, since this is a food blog and I want to continue introducing wonderful, yummy foods for my followers and fans!
So I will not discuss my eating lifestyle on my blog.
But I will continue to discuss BODY POSITIVE!
