The Curious Case of my runaway bum
My Wonkawonk. It amazes and perplexes!
I have been a vegan for two years now.
Watching and examining everything I put into this castle - this body - my home.
I drink plenty of fluids and exercise 4-6 times a week; riding 10 miles on the bike or more and also lifting weights, or yoga.
SO WHY IS MY BUM GROWING???
There are a few sites I belong to that may have the answers for me. On REALAGE.COM Dr.Oz and Dr. Roizen are promoting a new book YOU ON A DIET. I abhor the term diet, because I feel that in order to be truly successful there must be a total life change, but this might help with my ever widening arse!
I mean, after you've logged and blogged and run yourself ragged, shouldn't you be thin? Don't flare up yelling at me, I don't mean "model thin" or anything like that, I just mean fit in my clothes thin! My pre-child frame eludes me, and I feel that I should be able to reconnect with that "me". Is that too much to ask?
Maybe there is truth to the whole cortizone concept. Fighting fat after 40 is what I am up against here and it ain't pretty! At this stage of the game, women my age and up, are dealing with the battles of stressors and calories! THANKS MOTHER NATURE!
The good news is that I have not necessarily GAINED weight, it just shifted.
My thighs and upper body are nice and toned. However, that wonderful area from my hips to round back has grown, or spread, or as I sometimes say, reacted.
Posteriorally, I guess I am just challenged. Genetics are also in play here, but I am determined to never give up to this ever growing romp!
Taking at least 5 challenges at once should assist in losing a few inches off my gadunkadunk, right?
What say you? Are you having a time? Share your triumphs and failures with your physical image. Feel free to post about them right here. I AM definitely listening. Let us check with one another 30 days from now, to see what will and won't work!
