Tips for Work Out Confidence & $50 gift card giveaway

by superexhausted on May 11, 2012

Dressing for your current size.  This past week I was able to attend a Fitness Magazine Meet and Tweet event in NYC.  It was a fun a event with great opportunities to learn about fitness and healthy living.   Oh yea did you happen to notice the picture above.. Yes that is me towering over the greatest female soccer player of all time!  MIA HAMM ..omg.  Check out my post /video tomorrow on the entire event.

There was a Fitness Fashion Show,  then style editor from Fitness Argy Koutsothanasis provided  2 of  my favorite tips:

  • Best Accessory is confidence it looks good on anyone (this  is the same thing I was saying last week in the confidence post)
  • Dress for your current size,  if you read my post last week you will realize I thing it is import to be comfortable in your skin no matter what size you are

Prior to going  to NYC, I went and purchased some clothes for this event.  The reason I think clothes that fit properly are important and they are an instant boost yourself confidence.  Don’t wait till you are a size 8 when you are a size 16  from a 22.  A great outfit will make you feel empowered no mater what size. .

That includes when you workout,  when you go to the gym and see the “smaller” women looking good. So you think.. “she is just showing off her rocking body (bitch)”.. well I say “yea for her!”  She worked hard to have that body. she could have been where you are right now.

I  might not be tiny.  I want to celebrate what I have accomplished this so far.  Now,  I am not saying it is not OK to wear your husband’s tee and sweat pants.  But If I need a pick me up I get dressed up in clothes that make me look great!

Look at the difference wearing clothes that promote the FRUMP.

Wearing an outfit that fits,  I can stand tall with, Buy clothes for the size you currently are.

This weeks Food:

After last confidence  post and everyone supporting me with such great comments, over 400 people view in 1 day.  I ended going to my inlaws and let the weekend of buffets begin- lets try 5 over the course of the weekend.  I stuck to the green and fish items,  stayed away from sauces(but I did eat more than I should).  It was like I know I should not be eating this,  but I did good this week I inspired people  (and we are back ay my Weightloss Games, which I realized Sunday evening.)   The rest of the week I did well.  Needless to say with my slow down in activity and food I think they balanced them out.  So no loss or gain.  I feel like the little engine that could with a few trips to the bathroom, snackbar, and snooze on the couch.

Next weeks Goals:  for next week Write down everything I eat, and move more.

I will carry on.. one telephone pole to one telephone pole.. it starts with a step , so I am going to continue. Thank for giving me the drive to continue.
