i.Scrap - the Fitness Installment
I created this collage last Summer to make a visual representation of my health and fitness goals. I chose this for the i.Scrap album as it is one of the most important choices that I made last year and one of the biggest areas for learning and growth for me.
Despite increased intensity and duration of workouts, during the Summer of 2010, my weight soared to the highest number it had been since being pregnant with twins in 1993. I developed problems with both knees and the pain in my low back returned. I got scared. I knew I did not want to spend the rest of my life overweight, out-of-shape, and in pain.
I want to be fit and active - to dance, to play, to enjoy life. I want to make healthy eating choices. On my 50th birthday I want to feel good about living in my own skin and to celebrate knowing that I am doing everything I can to make the most of the life still left in this body of mine!
