I fell off the “Friday Five” wagon… but that’s pretty much the theme of this post. Aimee fell off the wagon. Here are Five Reasons Why Aimee Needs To get Back on the Wagon.
1.) I’m not getting any younger
Every day I spend in this overweight body I am putting more stress on my joints, my heart, and my future. The kids need me healthy. I want to dance at their wedding as hard as I’ve ever danced and my knees and ankles aren’t built to handle this much weight. My father and brother both had heart attacks far too young. I need to get back on the wagon before any health situations arise. The fear of forty looms large and I’m not getting any younger.
2.) Off the Wagon Aimee is a B.
Nothing really more needs to be said here. I’ve been a total grump lately.
I went from a size 24 to a size 16. Those 16s were supposed to get traded in for 12s, 10s, 8s…. nope. The 16s are SNUG and I;m thankful its spring and I can finally wear more skirts and dresses that are more forgiving. MAN. THAT STINKS. Aimee, get on the wagon.
4.) It hurts to run.
I’ve built fitness. I’ve built strength. But it still hurts my joints to run. Losing weight will help and allow my inner athlete to be released!
5.) Because I’m worth it.
I’m so thankful that I have another chance to start over, because I’m worth it enough to try again. I know, I know, I’m tired of hearing it to. This time I have a plan and I’m holding myself accountable.
