A Wake Up Call

The other day, I reached for my favorite pair of skinny jeans. As I was putting them on, the strangest thing happened…I couldn’t get them past my knees.

THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME!!

I started to freak out, thinking I must have gained a lot of weight since the last time I wore them a couple of months ago. But the scale told a different story. My weight was still steady as it has been for the past few years.

So what changed?

To be honest, I haven’t been working out for several months and my body fat to muscle ratio is probably higher than it used to be. I have lost muscle mass and tone, replaced by fat.

It really hit me that if I want to stay fit for the rest of my life, I really need good habits that will make exercising second nature. I started P90X back up again…classic this time around. Though the exercises are familiar, my body doesn’t remember it as easily and I am starting over. This time, I hope I can finish it properly.

I guess it’s a good thing that I buy clothes that fit my body without too much spandex or stretch material to let me know when I’m slacking on my exercise routine.

Instead of giving up, I’m starting again. So what if this is the X-th time I’ve failed to reach my goals? As long as I keep trying, it will get better. I’m taking it one step at a time.

Forget the past and start fresh.
