Tips to Get Fit With Avia is a sponsored post
I finally decided it was time. Maybe it was the stubborn ever increasing muffin top that pushed me over the edge, or the fact that my son asked me if I wanted to start shopping at Lane Bryant (not that there's anything wrong with that) but I realized I just didn't feel good.
And it's a not about a goal weight for me- I don't own a scale, it's about how I feel in clothes- it's about wanting to wear clothes and be able to tuck in my shirt. It's about not dreading THE THOUGHT OF wearing a bathing suit. Its about feeling lighter which translates into ultimately feeling better.
I'm not ready to give up on my body, I don't want to be complacent about that ever increasing jeans size and that I was at a point where I only felt comfortable in stretch pants. I want to take back ownership over how I feel, and I know the keys to all of that are changing my diet and just moving.
But watching TV is certainly not going to do much for you in the exercise department- Sure, there are a million and one excuses I always seem to find as to why I can't find the time to squeeze in exercise.
However, when I think about writing them down, they all add up to one thing: I hate exercise. But, in my effort to model the behavior I'd like my kids to emulate — andhelp them indeed live their best lives — I not only have to talk the talk, but walk the walk — literally.
So If you, have fallen off the exercise wagon, and are finally ready to prove to you and your kids the benefits of exercise, and you also want to set a good example for your kids- you've got to unhinge your rump from the couch- get out from underneath the covers- and get moving.. even if you start indoors!
1. Just start! WALk. Sure I HATE getting off a warm couch (is there ANYONE who doesn't?!) but as long as it keeps my muffin top at bay, I'm willing to take as many as I need to for the team.
