So a few months back my father had to undergo open heart surgery. (He has a really cool scar!) It changed the lives of our entire family. Eating healthy and exercising has become our new lifestyle. I, for one, began to value my health as means for internal success rather than only focusing on the external expectations I had of my body.
I personally took up fast walking, which turned into running (for the first time in my life!) and today I revved it up with kickboxing classes. It’s been rough, but I’ve never felt more accomplished than when I realized my endurance has increased ten fold. I haven’t lost a single pound, but I know that I am caring for my heart now….not my pant size. And let me tell you- that is the best feeling!
Today I thought- being curvy is something to be proud of, but how can us larger gals help each other be healthy at the same time? We need to stay fit & healthy so that we can be around for ourselves to enjoy, but also our family! I’ll tell you, I don’t ever want another to have to endure the pain & fear that I did when my father was laying in that hospital bed with a breathing tube down his esophagus. So many do though, and especially with heart disease at an all time high.
Today I came across “Curvy Goddess Lounge.” A community of exercises and tips specifically for plus size women. And of course, I pulled a few of my favorite fashions for hittin’ the mat. To top it off….huge savings for my favorite ladies! Check out the coupon below…
I call these the “keepin’ it under wraps” tank. (Avenue Plus)
(best pants ever- Avenue Plus)
Lots of love
