So, I was warned. I was told to beware of what happens when you turn 30!! Dun, dun, dun!!!!
What the heck happened??
As if leaving your twenties isn’t bad enough, you get a pooch thrown at you with a side of love handles and a flabbier ass! I know I had been slowing down my workouts for the past few months. But, it’s not like I was laying on the couch everyday watching Tyra and One life to live while munching on a bag of chips! Sheesh!!
My body took a bit of a pit stop from the usual toned road I was used to going down. So, now I have a life full of, “don’t eat that”, or “this is better for you”, and “I haven’t worked out enough today to get away with eating that”, going through my head constantly.
This is for the birds, I say! I have cut back on the snacky foods that I have come to love so much, and replaced them by some “healthier” choices. But, I do refuse to go down the road again of no taste-ville. Trust me, I have been there before and almost starved myself to death. When I was hiding food in my bag and sneaking it into the bathroom at an ex’s house, I knew my body was about to protest in a bad way.
So, instead of having only protein shakes, oatmeal, bland chicken with no seasoning and snacks that look like dog poop, I will eat healthier than I was. But, I am not giving up my favorite foods! Life is way too short to sit around, eating cardboard trying to lose those last couple of pounds. If I have to start working out an hour a day just so I can enjoy that occasional ice cream, french fries, or twizzlers (my favorite), then that’s what I shall do.
Just say NO, to eating Tree bark! 😉
