One Life. One Love. One Body.
As many of our New Year’s resolutions melt away with the last of Winter’s snow, we hope a few good habits remain. Although I don’t think a life without wine, cheese, butter, or coffee (etc.) would be worth living, I still want to do right by this body… after all- it’s the only one I have and I should take good care of it. I will never be red-carpet material, my curves are here to stay, but it feels so great to push yourself to do better and make improvements. I have worked out off and on my whole life, but over the last 2 months I have remained committed to the daily “Insanity” routine, Shaun T is a regular presence in my living room and I probably spend more time with him and his very lean crew of guys and gals than I do with most of my friends (although I don’t shout obscenities at my friends nearly as much as I do to Shaun T). The results are great, but no- I will not be posting photos of myself in spandex for the ogling eyes of the internet (at least not yet). Taking care of ourselves is just as important as maintaining our relationships, we will make those around us happier if we are happy. I have found happiness in life, and am incredibly happy in love (married for 13 years- hells ya!), and I am getting happier with my body every day. There are no excuses for not doing your best, and it’s never to late to make a change (i.e. Tony Horton, creator of P90x, is 54 and is in the best shape of his life). As Shaun T likes to say, “dig deeper, you can do it!”
