Ladies, today it’s Friday, the weather is perfect for a cute sweater, and the weekend is here! Whew! That was a mouth full!
Any who, let’s get to the topic at hand. The Pounds. Call me, Stella! I’ve been getting my groove on, walking, riding bike, and hopping on the elliptical (I have missed a few days!), trying to get this body in shape. My goal is to get older and better, and I wish the same for you! But how many of you know it is not easy.
The pounds have piled on, especially since the Corona virus, and now we have to work to get them off. And it is not as easy as you think. Let me put a disclaimer out here, I am not a doctor, nurse, or dietician, but I do know if you want to be our best selves holistically, we have to work at it.
This whole conversation was sparked because I wanted to check my Body Mass Index, BMI, to see where I should be in terms of weight. And I was surprised because I thought I was doing pretty good! Rude awakening. I still have a long way to go!
My hopes for sharing this with you, is to bring awareness to how much weight we could really have packed on even if we don’t physically see it. However, we know the mirror or scale don’t lie! So, after you view the BMI link, put your numbers in and see where you are, and make the necessary changes if needed. That way, we can all get older and better together!
Now I want to hear from you, what have you been up to? Have you been exercising on a regular basis? What’s the food habits like? Share, share, share!
I know I haven’t been posting like I should, but I’m getting there! Have you picked up any new hobbies? Side hustles lately? I have a surprise that I’ll share a little later. In the meantime, continue to be Fabulous and share. Don’t forget to Opt-in if you haven’t done so already for new posts and updates.
Blessings and Love,
Love it. FACTS!!!
Thank you. Awareness, and the right tools, is a good idea!
I try to Ride my Peloton three times a week for at least three miles! The trainers are motivating and really make you want to succeed! Yoga is a great way to release the tension/stress of your day… this is my nightly ritual! You are an inspiration! Keep doing what you are doing! It’s worth the journey!
Karen, Thank you for your kind words and for sharing. It is important that we begin if have not done so already, or continue to prioritize, self care. Self care incorporated with great eating habits, makes for a long healthy life!
Kudos to you my friend!
Wow!! As I read the encouraging words it really motivated me to “PUSH” even harder!!! As I move forward in 2022, I’m focusing on a healthy lifestyle to include mind, body and spirit! I took your advice and wrote down the goals I’m going to achieve for a healthy lifestyle using the “SMART” goal setting framework. Noticed, I said ‘going to achieve”!!! ???! The “SMART” framework will hold me accountable for the healthy lifestyle changes I’m seeking!!! S-Specific in setting my goal, M-Measurable, A-Attainable, R-Relevant, T-Time Sensitive!! I love the myriad of different things you are sharing, keep the positive and calm vibes going. So proud of you! Love you girl! ❤️❤️
Rosalyn, I feel your energy through the words and am confident that you will achieve your desired outcome! More importantly is the recognition of a “healthy lifestyle” change versus a “quick fix.” You go, girl! Know that I am cheering from you!
