Time for another video of my Let’s do this Together series.
Please excuse the bloopers, swear words and interruptions! All of my videos are from the first take and not edited. My goal is to just be me, and yes, sometimes I swear. I also intend to keep them short and sweet. But this one went from laughing to swearing to laughing to crying. What the heck?
So I dropped the Fast Metabolism Diet. Just was NOT for me. Way too much focus on food. I’ve honestly found that when I spend my day thinking about my diet, I end up eating more than I should or need. I also know for me, the See Food diet is a big problem. I’m okay by myself without a bunch of food around, but put some in front of me, and I’ll eat it.
I have been fit most of my life because I have been active most of my life. Every time I have slowed down, I’ve put on extra pounds. Five years ago I smashed my right foot. After a few years it got worse and worse and I kept allowing myself an out when it came to activity and exercise.
By the time I had surgery to fuse a joint, I was overweight and out of shape.
I wrote about it on my blog, “I let a couple of screws get me down”
But it was/is just an excuse. In my Nia class there is a woman who has had surgery on both of her feet. She can’t participate in the class on her feet, so she either uses a balance ball or gets on the floor with a yoga mat to “dance”.
That’s a woman who didn’t find an excuse not to exercise.
But the good news is, I’m back on track.
I love (yes, love) my bike. It’s fast and sporty and so much fun. I ride to the gym, which helps me warm up before classes. And my husband and I ride together most weekends. I feel so much better.
What’s your favorite activity/sport/exercise? What do you love to do?
–side note– I don’t know who started the Me Too campaign…I just know I am part of it. Was not easy to write about it, but I knew I had to. Maybe I am my own Hero #metoo
