I didn’t want to hijack the thread posed on here by a dad, so i thought this might be good to hear from other moms/women, and thought i’d pose a separate thread for us women.
How do you keep in shape?
I’m the worst one to talk, I’ll start out by saying, because i have been so depressed now for 2 years over my husband’s infidelity, but i really want to start getting back in shape, and getting my life back, with God;s help. And your help.
When i first discovered my h’s affair, i was so distraught, i couldn’t eat or sleep and i lost 40 pounds. i then looked great and wore a size 8 jeans again, like i did 25 years ago. I then promptly gave away all my fat clothes and bought some new jeans, etc. Then when he moved home repeatedly I started cooking up a storm for my family again, (one of my favorite hobbies) and i put on weight again, as we had BBQ’s galore, (my h’s specialty) and he loves to cook too, so I gained all the weight back. UGH. Now am up to a size 12, which is what i am presently. i still look good i think, at 5 feet 8, but i would like to be that size 8 again.
when we get our tax refund, i plan on buying a new bicycle, and going on rides daily like i used to. this is my way of getting in shape, and something i really enjoy, and a great way to get in shape. I just love bike riding. Also no carbs after 4 p.m. I can eat all i want all day, but at night, i must forego all bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, any carbs. This is what i did before and it really took the weight off.
what do you all do? I’m not the “gym type”, but i love to bike ride, love snow skiing, and love jogging. We have a life cycle at home, but i’ve been too depressed to even go on it lately, i’m sorry to say. I hope to change this.
Would love to hear from anyone.
I know i need to get my life back, but when you’ve been so wounded, it’s so hard to do.
