Well guys, I told you I am committed to do a 180 in my life. In addition to the purging of "stuff", the simpler life, I am also starting the P90X workout regimen. My hubby and I went to Sports Authority to get a cushioned floor mat (to prevent injuries on hard floor) and some very low weights. My hubby's cousin is a very respected personal trainer in our community and gave us some tips, so we do not injure or overdo ourselves. I would always advise people to ask for some professional help, talk to their doctors, before starting any workout regimen.
Most people would look at me and say I have nothing to worry about. I wear between a size 2 or 4, I weight 120lbs. and am very small built (let's just say I was always picked last for sports teams). But I am the image of what's called "skinny fat." I am at around 30% body fat and no muscle definition. I don't want to lose weight, I want to be strong.
Believe me, this is not about vanity. I was never really vain or focused on my appearance. This is purely about my health. Being depressed has been a great wake up call to realize the way I eat and the sedentary life I lead have taken a toll on my body and my brain. As I come closer to turning 40 (oh my, I still feel I am 15), I want to have a healthy life. I want to live to 100 and then die peacefully in my sleep. But sitting on the couch and eating burgers will not lead me to this outcome.
I honestly believe that a happy life takes investment. I guess one of the biggest sins women commit is taking care of everyone else before they take care of themselves. Well, this lead to me not being able to be there for nobody. So now I know that taking care of myself first will allow me to be a better wife, daughter, and sister. So wish me luck!
