Not a Chance

It will be a very cold day in hell before I choose to celebrate my middle aged girth and the ravages of aging over doing what I can to stave them off.

Today – bike in trainer for 45 and run 3 miles. Then I can dance and say “Look at meeee….. I’m training for a half iron distance triathlon!!!”

    I’m with you – fight the fight and celebrate the battles! Celebrate what your body can do v. how it looks when compared to scrawny runway models. Now, when I see one of those chicks, I think: I could kick her butt in a race! That’s better than a flab free (or baby free) girth any day!

    Stave away dear 21st! You are going to find more muscles and sinew in the next few months that will power you across that 1/2 IM line with no worries!

    what a depressing “cartoon.” ugh.

  9. I am so there. BUT I have decreased the girth a bit just with no sugar, no white flour diet and increased training. You will get there! People who celebrate middle age are on a different planet!

  10. The kind of self-abnegation in the cartoon is uniquely female.Can you imagine the same strip with a male character?
    People like you are taking back the definition of “aging” for all of us, TFC Mom. And may I say thank you?

    I fight that aging thing every day. I also avoid bright lights in front of mirrors.

    I am now the proud manager of an idrive account. Thank you 21CM.
