The Evolution of the So What Selfie
Not gonna lie – Sometimes I’m fairly well appalled at this whole “getting older” thing. Quite often I don’t like how I look and I’m not crazy about how I feel. But sticking my head in the sand isn’t going to make things any better. Enter the “so what selfie” – my attempt to acquaint myself with the current state of my (ahem) affairs.
I’m working on my acceptance and my attitude, and hoping my taking a few proactive steps will help me come to terms with the inevitable. Today, I tried one of Kayla Itsines’ BBG programs. Holy Wow. The goal was two sets of two circuits, ideally at 7 minutes each for a total of 28 minutes. Heh, heh – yeah, no.
Let me just enlighten the uninitiated here – this girl is NO. JOKE. Her stuff is no frills old school calisthenics and it will get your body’s attention. I made it through one very sloppy set of the two circuits and was sweating + wheezing fit to die. Not about to let that stop me, though! Those transformation photos, y’all … v. tempting.
Also, can I just give a shout out to Katy over at the Midlife Rambler? She is not only working on a Big Fat Scary Goal (and encouraging others to join her) but she’s brave enough to post a video of her progress. Mujere!
This midlife fitness business is a whole new ball game!
I’m breathlessly (so breathless) awaiting the Android app of Sweat with Kayla (tried the web version for a bit and it looks promising), but for now there’s only an iOS version. The cool part is how at-home friendly the program is. I love a good gym experience, but scheduling has been tough around here, so this is a good fit at the moment.
How about you? How are you keeping fit these days?
