After a very decadent Easter weekend chock full of cocktails, sugar, and salty treats, I can’t believe how quickly my beach vacation has snuck up on me at the end of May. Not only am I bloated around my midsection, but I am also having flare ups with my eczema and stomach woes. None of the above makes me pumped to bare my skin.
While I have a much easier time managing my fitness schedule (if I don’t move my body hurts and I feel like a million bucks after a DS class so the incentive is immediate), my struggles lie with my food choices and portion control. My favorite thing to do is grab dinner, drinks, dessert and spend time with friends and family. I mentioned this before in my Lift & Tone blog, but it warrants a second note - things feel and look different at 45 so I know I have to adjust my habits. I have had to modify the intensity of my workouts to protect my body which means I have to upgrade my food choices to stave off extra pounds and to calm my irritated skin and digestive system.
Eating healthy is not rocket science, but the ability to stay organized, committed, and consistent feels like a magical power I have yet to possess. This is one reason why I wanted to implement a nutrition program at Dancers Shape - I personally need the support of a like-minded community to help me change some old eating habits and to stay accountable and consistent. If this sounds or feels familiar to you then I hope you will join me and the Dancers Shape’s staff for our Shape It Up For Summer 30 day nutrition & fitness program that will kick off with our nutrition workshop May 4th at 1:15 pm. Let’s feel confident together!
