I have always enjoyed working out. Even through my pregnancy. I took kickboxing the Saturday before I had my baby. But after JOE arrived, things have been quite busy. I find that I am not as eager to workout anymore. I am now more interested in spending time with my daughter or getting sleep when I can. I still "workout" but not like I used to. I take a step class on Tuesdays but Mondays and Saturdays, I go for long walks. When it gets too cold outside, I'll start doing TaeBo in the basement. With that said though, my goal is to be back to my hour-glass figure before we start trying for another.
So when I read the article above, I was really disappointed that folks feel that way way when they look at other "mismatched" couples. J loves to workout too but like the guy in the article, he has ALWAYS encouraged me. He never makes fun of me and always has a kind word to help give me the boost I need. But J is one of the lucky ones. He has what I call "skinny genes." He eats like a horse but doesn't gain weight. I eat 1/3 of what he eats and gain 10-lbs immediately. OK...maybe not 10-lbs but you catch my drift.
Reading the article made me wonder if that's how folks view us. I have always loved my curves which was more hour-glass but since having a baby, I am much curvier and I feel more zero than an eight. I'd like for J & I to go from a 10 to an 18 again.
In reference to this statement from the article "[Together] They look like a number 10", I sent the below to J. The comment made me laugh out loud because of the way I've been feeling lately about my body.
As you can see...my hubby sure does have a sense of humor even when I am trying to get him to admit to something I (not him) am feeling :-).
