I generally don’t post about my weight.
Not because I don’t care about it, but because I have battled it my whole life and I know that most women struggle with insecurities surrounding their physical appearance.
I don’t need to write about all of the diets and healthy living plans I’ve done; the exercise routines, videos, and classes; the shakes, pills, and Dr. Oz’s.
If you’ve had a weight problem then you’ve done them too.
Being overweight isn’t about eating too much, not moving enough, or letting yourself go, it’s a combination of so many things for so many people.
Filling emotional gaps with food, loneliness, unhealthy eating habits, the price of healthy foods, grief, medications, stress, willpower, abuse, etc.
And it’s different for every single one of us.
For me it’s finding the time.
How do I make time to get active?
That’s where you come in.
I can control what I eat and have fun planning lunches, dinners, and snacks, but we lead busy lives and finding the time to sneak in activity is hard.
How do YOU do it?
My commute is long; I work an 8 hour day; I have a toddler and a husband I like to spend time with; as well as freelancing, friends, bath time, cleaning, laundry, groceries, family, etc.
Where do you squeeze in your activity? A pedometer to count steps? Small exercises throughout the day? At lunch?
As I get older I’m concerned about heart health and want to include daily activity into my lifestyle, please share your tips!
