We are trying to make changes to our life. I am fat. Plain and simple. It however truly does not bother me. I am ok with who I am. I don't fret when I look in the mirror and I am comfortable with who I am and how I look. I would prefer to be smaller and more fit, but I don't stress too much about it. I am pretty stinkin' active and I don't think that my body holds me back from too much that I want to do.
I do however have small children and I would prefer to be around for a long time. I need to be more fit. I need to be even more active in a intentional way.
I have been changing the way I eat for about a year. It has been an evolution. I feel like I am eating better than I have in my whole life. I am not dieting, I am simply choosing better options, looking at portions, and trying to be conscious about when I am full. I am giving soda up this week. I have done it before and I fell off the wagon after about 6 months. This time is for real. It is hard and I really don't want to have to do it again.
A friend has been doing a T-tapp exercise program and it looks like it would meet my needs. "T-Tapp is a series of copyrighted, sequential movements designed to put the body in proper functional alignment. Its special sequence of comprehensive, compound muscle movement helps establish better alignment as well as increased strength and flexibility of the spine, better neuro-kinetic flow, lymphatic function, and increased metabolic rate. Its physical therapy approach to fitness makes it safe for those with shoulder, hip, knee, neck, and back concerns. Yet, it delivers a challenging workout for all fitness levels!" It seems right up my alley. Quick and to the point. It will kick my booty! I only have to invest 15 minutes per day and my hubby can do the same workout. Cindy and her husband are rocking the T-tapp! You can see some of her progress here. Looks pretty amazing! And with NO dieting, just intentional eating.
I have no desire to loose a ton of weight. I just want to be healthy and fit and perhaps a couple sizes smaller. We shall see, of course with my over-sharing personality, I will likely share the process and the progress with you all here. (whether you like it or not!)
