It's my birthday today! (10/15) And as such, it is allowable to ... how shall we say? .... steer away from the straight and narrow of the weight loss path. Right??
I knew you would see it my way.
Now, I am laying on the couch and trying not to think of how full I am. OH! Supernatural is coming on the tv. Be back after.
Man... Jensen and Jared. SO yummy. Okay... sorry. Where was I before the testosterone made me all drool-y and all? Oh right... birthday... and how it gives us the excuse to let loose! Only to dread getting on the scale for the next few days. But I am now officially closer to 40 than I am 30. I should be allowed to let loose a little bit. SO THERE!
What?? I AM NOT SENSITIVE ABOUT MY AGE.
No.... I am not.
Sorry. I don't know what came over me. But really, the older you get, the harder it is to loose weight. Recently I read an article about women's health on Prevention Magazine's website titled Win at Weight Loss How an exercise pioneer fights over-40 fat, and one of the tips given was:
"Many women think if they can't do an hour of exercise every day, they may as well do nothing," says Nelson. [Miriam Nelson, PhD] But you can see results with far less. Nelson should know--that's how she stays healthy: "There are plenty of days that I have just 10 minutes to fit in a walk. At least once during the week, I get in a run or bike ride. Then on the weekend, I exercise a lot more."
This is a great tip! Especially for those of us who may be able to work out at lunch or right after work, but can't spend 6 hours in the gym. The article goes on to give cardio schedules for different situations, whether you want to break out of a plateau, or lose some inches, etc. Go read it! It might give you some ideas.
Okay ... waddling off to fight the food coma now.
P.S. I may or may not be able to blog in the next few days. Have tons of work that needs to get done pronto. See you guys soon!
