I am not proud of what my body has become the last couple of months. I have been struggling to get back in shape and it has been a challenge. My back problems don't really help either. I never would have thought I would see myself here. Even after hearing adults talk about the weight of gravity and how hard it is to stay fit the older you get. I never thought I would be there [resisting the gravitational pull] already.
So here I am. Not in the best shape of my life.
Don't get me wrong. I have a very active lifestyle. I surf regularly, walk the beach and am always moving around. Unfortunately, after a lot of traveling and not much time dedicated to "working out" has lead to some unfortunate dimples and sagging. And dedicating time to stay fit is so necessary the older you get. I am now finding that out.
But it is really hard to get motivated and back into it. And this is going to sound crazy [and maybe a bit shallow] but after I got a bunch of Lululemon gear.. I was all in. Now I am not trying to say I tried using retail therapy to cure my out-of-shape body. But getting the right workout gear definitely helped kickstart my routine. There is something about a good fitting, fashionable workout outfit that can really motivate a girl. It makes your active life more intentional. If you've got the gear, you've gotta do the time. Just talking about it makes me want to bust out a couple yoga poses. I cannot wait to start up my yoga routine again. And now with my new gear I am that much more motivated to stretch out a couple warrior poses. Seriously.
Until then I have been enjoying the beach and ocean rocking my Lululemon gear. It's so comfy I have seriously been wearing it to bed, into the next morning, all day, out for coffee, to the grocery store, in the ocean, and then some. It has become my new versatile wear. Now bring on the hot bod!!
Getting fit the right way.
