WORKOUT – Elliptical 70 mins
I went to the gym this morning and was reading November’s issue of SHAPE magazine; I want to copy a short question and answer article that I thought was pretty good.
“I’ve put on a few pounds and I’m not happy about the way I look. I’m trying to lose the weight, but until then how can I build my self-esteem?”
“Whether you’re a size 6 or a 16, you’re still the same person, deserving of care, attention, and love. And remembering that will help you reach your goal. The happier you are with your current shape, the more motivated you’ll be to eat healthier and work out.”
Your first step should be to focus on your assets. Start a journal and write down what you like about your body, and play up those features… The point is, you want to enjoy your body as it is now, rather than putting off all fun until some future time.
Though it may sound simplistic, these small steps can give your confidence a big boost…. Being happy with your weight is important, but don’t let your self-worth be determined by a number on a scale.”
Who wants some more Cat lady Blogs?
Today’s featured blogger babe is Kari from JoggingwithFiction!
I started blogging a few months ago because I give in to peer pressure easily and my mom keeps telling me to write a book. Sometimes blogs get made into books right? Unfortunately, I don’t think my content really lends itself to anything longer than a pamphlet.
My family has always been super active. Vacations and holidays regularly consist of 17 mile bike rides and feats of strength competitions.
I mostly blog about running and exercising with my super cute new husband, Mike, and even cuter and newer dog, Bungee.
You tell me whose cuter.
I find myself entertaining, but I think it’s time more people thought so. I also post incredibly easy recipes every once in a while. I love to eat, but I’m not a very skilled chef (nor do I have enough money to really experiment with groceries). So I create my own version of delicious cuisine.
Now everyone go check out Kari’s blog who says she’s a lefty. Thanks Kari for the email!
Are you a lefty or a righty?
I’m a South Paw, God’s chosen ones.
