Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 10th day of October, 2018.

Happy Birthday to our friends, the twin boys “R” and “R.”

 

Well mid week today.

Alvin is curled up on his blue blanket as I write this post.

All is well in our world.

 

Life reminds me that these extra pounds that have begun to accumulate around my middle, will not go away without extra work.

So I have to get my butt in gear.

I have been talking about doing “yoga” and “pilates” for awhile now and just have not been able to get into the routine.

But now is the time.

With winter right around the corner – there is no time like the present.

As we age it is so EASY to put on those extra pounds.

Our metabolism slows down or seems to be napping in my case.

Before things get out of hand and my health is affected – I am going to make this pledge to myself.

One form of exercise in addition to walking every night after work.

15-20 minutes.

I have two yoga mats, yoga bricks, yoga strap and yoga & pilates recordings.

I have no excuses.

None.

Not a one.

Plus I have my new yoga outfit that my friend bought me for my birthday which has been collecting dust in the closet.

Well no dust but you know what I mean.

Time to take action.

I would like to have my waist and “flatter stomach” back again.

A bit pouf is okay but not this.

No more muffin top ….. why do we put food related comments to being overweight.

Extra weight adds stress to your back, to your internal organs, to your overall health, to your mind and to your clothes.

No one wants to go and buy a larger size, argh.

NOT this “cookie”, so not appropriate.

NOT this person ….. now that is better.

Time to put down the sweets and cut back on portions.

I love veggies and time to add more to my diet.

We got this …… we got this.

I am also going to do a couple of extra flights of stairs at work today.

Start small and work up.

 

Happy Wednesday everyone.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks like me who just want to be a few pounds, “okay may more than a few” pounds lighter.  We got this. We can.

Always, Carol
