Have you ever exercised and the next morning you feel pretty bad? Well, that’s what’s been happening to your girl. But it’s not just exercise. I was out for the entire classic weekend, most of the activities. And wearing heels for four straight days got to me. Monday morning I woke up with joint pain in my knees, back and legs after wearing heels for 4 straight days.
My biggest problem, is that I ate everything that I could eat over that weekend. I ate food that I should not have. Lots of sweets, lots of bread, and lots of everything except for meat. So not only did the hills bother me but the food that I was putting in my body was making it worse. So, I decided that I’ve got to lose weight.
Before the classic I did a quick three day diet. That worked for me. But I gained the weight right back and for most of the year that’s what I’ve been doing. I have been working out, losing weight, eating healthy and then I gain the weight right back. So I’ve made a decision that from now on I’m going to lose the weight but i know that I’ve got to keep it off.
I’ve gotten a little older and I realize that I can no longer treat my body the way I did when I was 20 years old. I’ve been treating my body like it’s a race car. I no longer have a race car body. The kind of body that you can just go and go and go and go like.... young folks have. I have more of a luxury car body. I’ve got to take it easier than I used to because I want my joints to work and I don’t want to have knee replacement or hip replacement or surgeries because I’m overweight. I know I have a problem and my problem is not unique. A lot of people have the same issue. Living in the south and all this good food, sometimes you just can’t say no to it.
