Curvy doesn't have to mean FATTuesday, April 27, 2010
Seriously. Curvy doesn't mean nor does it have to mean fat. While the term plus size is extremely vague in my opinion, I choose to embrace the curves of my womanly body, but refuse to be in denial about being overweight. There comes a point when curvy turns to fat, and it's time to get back into shape. As a size 26/28, I am not embarrassed or hate myself/body, in fact I'm quite confident since I know my personality is my number 1 accessory...but I live life with the mentality of living life to the fullest - and for me that means being more physically fit so I can enjoy hikes and biking! Funny, the word curvy...I thought long and hard on my blog's title, and while I am curvy, I do not wish to be fat my entire life.
So, when the time came to spearhead some weightloss, there were two things I needed to do:
1) get some workout clothes! I decided to hit up my fav online places for activewear, old navy and always for me (yes they have activewear too!).
2) sign up for a gym - 24hr fitness had a great deal - so I signed up for the personal trainer too.
Then, it was time to hit the gym!
And, I say often, don't take yourself seriously! So, to prove I follow my own advice, here's a few shots of me trying to be cool in my activewear. *laughing* Seriously in my head I was FIERCE! :)

And! Do your feet go numb when on the treadmill or machines? Mine do, and I asked my trainer today what to do...he said get Diabetic Socks. Guess they reduce the pressure on your ankle and allow better circulation! Genius! So, here are some diabetic socks via Google....
