Filling out (eek!)

So lately I have noticed clothes getting snugger. Ok, this is NOT cool. I watch what I eat & exercise for a reason. I got to talking with a friend of mine and while I do get that muscle weighs more than fat (this is why I do NOT depend on the scale AT ALL) I wasn't thinking about muscle taking a different shape than the fat does. Which would be why certain clothes aren't fitting the same anymore. Boy oh boy what this can do to your head if you let it!

Lately I have taken to doing more cardio. I love the feeling I get when I'm pushing myself to go further than the last time I ran or to do a workout that I KNOW will get my heart going faster than yesterdays. Yeah, I do add some weights in there once in a while but I had to take too long off from the cardio that I feel like I just need to catch up to what I have missed. My younger son and I have taken a different route now when we run/bike and he is much happier with it. The other route we took, he felt, had too many little hills. Hey, he is on wheels! What is he complaining about right? heehee. I'm thinking if I need to have my "bodyguard" then I will do what I can to make him happy.

Well, I hope you have had some time to get out and enjoy the weather. If it's raining by you, well, that's not an excuse not to get that heart pumping. Get up and get moving! Lunge across your living room, do some squats during commercial breaks from your favorite show. You can do it!!

Be Blessed & Healthy!!
