Boring Stuff Filter #1

So, here we go…this is a test of sorts, an attempt to track what I am and am not doing, and also a place to be more open than I would with the world at large. You know, talk about getting older and weight issues, posting pictures of my ass, whatever.

So.

At the seriously advanced age of 44, things could be better, and things could be worse. I want to lose a stone. I want to get back in shape…I miss the feeling of strength, of muscularity, of confidence. I hate my stomach. The skin is good, very good over the body, not many wrinkles around the eyes, pores getting large (inheritance from my mother’s side), breasts still good. I’ve been too afraid to look at my ass for a year or so; monsters may lurk back there.

Tip: wear a bra. Seriously, that is the best thing that you can do to keep your boobs where they belong. Sure, wear the very bare dress on special occasions, go dancing in practically nothing, but otherwise…wear one. Trust me on this…the breasts are pretty much where they started out, haven’t shifted downhill at all. Sleep in one, horrible as that seems. Listen to your Aunt Monica, you’ll all thank me in fifteen years.

Did I exercise tonight? No…although the trek through the far pastures up and down the steep, muddy hills might count for a bit, might work off, oh, say a Lifesaver or something. :(

I suppose this isn’t the most auspicious start.

    I didn’t have a saggy ass until I lost 50 lbs, now I think I should probably go to the gym or get fat again! I know which of the two would be more fun. ;) I do have dreams of being lithe and toned, just to know what it’s like before I get too old to do it. I don’t think I’ve been in anything like good physical fitness since I was 18.

    I never knew your age. I had you pegged for about 10 yrs younger. You look great! :)

    We won’t discuss boobs, though. I was NEVER perky even as a 16 year old.

    I wish I’d listened to Aunt Monica about 15 years ago… I’m afraid it may be too late now ;).

    That’s kind of how I feel: I want to do it now, while I can still enjoy the rewards from all the work. After a certain age, I think that you should be allowed to relax and not stress about looks so much. Within certain health boundaries, of course, but I don’t think your whole life should be a struggle to look 19. For now, though, I want to be fit again.

    :) Thanks very much.

    I always hated having smaller boobs when I was a teen, but now I’m thankful for them. There’s less for gravity to pull down.

    Not unless you’ve changed greatly during the last few years. :)

    Babies ARE hell on the body, though, unfortunately. Sorry, Lump – no offense.
