Still feeling 'yucky' but I DID it! (Again! :-)

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Ok, still feeling yucky and out of sorts but I just finished my 2.75 mile walk today! I'm participating in SparkPeople's 5K Your Way Walking Training Program -- just finished week 4. Yeah! It was WINDY out too so I got a little added resistance (and maybe burned a few extra calories? :)

I was talking with a friend at work this morning about menopause and I mentioned that I knew weight gain commonly occurred during/after you hit menopause but I wasn't going there! I just lost 20+ pounds and intended to lose more and NOT gain! She said that it might not be my decision -- I might gain anyway, despite my best efforts.

NOOOOOO! Say it isn't so! I don't accept that this is a foregone conclusion. I do accept that it might be more difficult to lose weight (and I know all about losing muscle mass when you get older (yada, yada, yada) but THAT doesn't have to happen either!

So there! NYAH at you, stupid hormones.

    Yeah!!! Poo on her for just trying to put that out in the world for you to gain weight!!! lol I know it's easier to gain weight during that time as well, but that doesn't mean that it HAS to happen. If you take care of yourself with healthy eaiting and exercising you'll be just fine.
