New site design, new start!
This lady reminds me of me. I have started going to yoga and the gym. Yoga seems so calming - all the movements are slow, they play mellow music, they talk slow. Why in the world then am I sweating like a pig in the middle of my sun salutation? lol I may not look as good as the other people in the class, or be able to be all bendy, or able to touch my toes BUT I'm getting the benefits from being there. Since putting aside my worries about looking like a bull in a china shop and just doing my work outs and eating right, I've lost 11 lbs. I'm so encouraged! You can be encouraged too. Getting in shape is not about anyone but you. I took time off to assess what I really wanted. I gave myself permission to be happy with myself overweight and came to the conclusion that it's not for me. So if it's not for me, then I needed to make some changes in my heart. I'm not saying that I'm not going to fall but I'm saying as I think of myself differently the healing in my body and mind come :)
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
