A new year

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

I am now 52 and almost right where I started weight wise. You could say I'm fat and happy but the extra weight makes me so tired that I don't want to work out. It's a vicious cycle. Real life always seems to get in the way. The OG's motorcycle battery died so I had to take him to a couple places to see if they had one. That meant that I missed my first zumba class. It would have been so easy to stay home after getting that battery. I barely had any sleep in me. Lately it's been any excuse! I moved farther from my gym a year ago and also lost my swimming pool when I moved and that has definitely not helped. It's nasty hot outside and we finally got some rain so we are now experiencing a mosquito invasion. This is the time of year when Texans retreat inside and wait for that first cool puff of wind to come from the North. I hear talk that we might get a cool front on Friday!! That means the high will be about 85 and the low will be in the 60's. The key is the humidity, though. I'm anxious to start riding my bike on the trails we have here. That was a tradeoff I made when I moved. It's something OG and I can do together and we both love to go visit the ducks and exploring. I've got to lose this weight again!!!

Fun thing happened in Zumba last night. Even though I only made it to the last ten minutes of the first class, my instructor noticed me and yelled out, "Happy Birthday, Kathy!" and the whole class wished me happy birthday. That was so nice of her! Zumba Step was brutal after missing so many classes this summer, but it felt good to accomplish something and I slept like a rock.

    Nice to meet you Kathy! I was sad to read about your husband. I am sorry! It must have been an extremely difficult thing to move on from. You have, be proud of yourself. It seems to me you are trying to make positive changes in your daily life. I believe one day at a time you will find your happy place. In the meantime....I would love to get to know you, so I will be visiting your blogs from time to time. GOOD LUCK! emoticon emoticon

    Being a fitness instructor, I also luckily learned that exercise alone will not keep the weight off... DIET is the KEY as we age, to finding a healthy weight and maintaining it!!!

    Have you ever gone to see a nutritionist? I found one and she has literally changed my life and my outlook and my WEIGHT!!!

    Congrats for getting back to your regular Zumba Classes! I know the feeling... taking even just a week off for me, sets me back what feels like MONTHS! But it all comes back quickly! HANG IN THERE!
