Strong is the new Skinny

strongWe’ve got it dialed!

Workout so much that you’ll have muscles popping out of your eyeballs.  mmmm maybe not. But I have to admit, I am a little jealous that this woman can balance like that and I’m struggling to balance a cup of water, a computer and a snack.

Forget about starving yourself to look good,  just get out there and do something.  Anything! Today I’ll head out and climb the beast of a hill beside my house while dog walking, add a splash of yoga and get my 10 minute workout in.  A new concept that I love. Who doesn’t have 10 minutes to work that butt.

2 years ago I lost up to 18lbs (8kilos). I looked great. I was exercising a lot. Mostly power walking and toning. I was eating lots of veggies and nuts but I didn’t realise that I was missing out on a lot of protein, iron and b12 which I struggled with in a big way in months to come.  And then the hormones turned me into a crazy lady.

As the weight loss progressed I started craving sugar badly. I convinced myself that eating chocolate for breakfast was a good idea. I’d burn it off throughout the day right?  Come on – chocolate for breakfast. That doesn’t sound right.  So clearly I wasn’t loosing weight the right way and I wasn’t feeling awesome.

So my new concept focus on feeling awesome and the weight will sort itself out.
