FBFF - Fitness & Fashion

Mommy, Munchkin and Moppet

down two pant sizes!

This is actually what I wore last Thursday to visit the in-laws. The pants are my first weight-loss purchase. They are 8s!!! Super comfy with the long sleeve tee, long pink pearls and keds. Maybe not the most stylish outfit ever, but we had a freaky cold spell and spent a couple of hours in the car. I really just wanted to be comfy, you know?

So, now that we have that over with, here is this weeks FBFF! Great questions as usual, Katy, Thank you.

1. Do you keep some kind of fitness routine? Why?

Yes! I do about 50 minutes on the elliptical bike three times a week and some type of toning or resistance workout three times a week. I work out because I have a toddler to keep up with! Seriously, I need the energy and when I don't keep up with my routine, I get tired easier. Weird, huh? I've also discovered recently that keeping up with the elliptical helps keep my knees from hurting so badly. When I miss a workout my knees let me know it. Violently. This getting older thing is not cool.

2. Has working out, maybe training for a marathon or something of that
nature, helped with your own perception of body image?
I don't know about body image perception, but I do feel better physically.

3. When you are hitting the gym or just going out for a long walk what
do you wear? Is it about functionality or fashion?
There is no fashion involved in what I wear to work out in. I go to the gym after the Munchkin goes to bed and I am usually the only one there. So there isn't any concern about people seeing me. I also don't like spending my minuscule clothing budget on workout clothes. I generally wear yoga pants or shorts and a tank top or tee with my sneaks. They generally don't even match. As long as I'm covered and can sweat, I'm happy. Well, not really happy. More satisfied.

4. Do you feel there is a cultural perception of what you ‘should’ be
doing for your own physical fitness?
Oddly enough our culture does seem to be obsessed with physical fitness even though the majority of us are not fit. To be honest, I don't really care what anyone else thinks I 'should' be doing. I don't live my life to please anyone but my God and my husband. I workout because I need to for the reasons mentioned above. I really don't like to workout (sweating is icky), but it is necessary.

5.  Dream big… what would be your ultimate fitness goal.
Ummmm..... I have no idea. As I said, I don't really like to work out, so I don't really have any goals. I just do my thing as quickly as possible to get it over with. Boring, I know. Eh. I'd rather be reading a book.
