I recently saw a post on facebook where a plus size woman was mad at Abercrombie’s CEO… because she is overweight.
First off Please understand even though I work at a fitness center… I do have a heart for those struggling with their weight.
However here is my gripe… I work damn hard to be able to wear clothing like abercrombie. One main reason is I like the styles… AND at other retailers I CANT FIND small sizes! So needles to say we have very similar problems.. they are just the opposite.
However take a minute to look at this chart. It is NOT retailers telling you that it would be best if you lost weight… ITS YOUR DR as well.
On average there is a 20-30 lb range for HEALTHY weight per height.
(Yes I know medical issues cause bodies to go wacko… I have a friend with a thyroid issue and she struggles to put weight on (and keep it on) AND on the other side… I have a client who has so many medical issues right now that her dr must triage each individually… but her body reacts with weight. I am am NOT judging because thats between your and your dr)
My point is I can think of several people who whine and complain about their weight but don’t do a dang thing about it. You continue to eat the Standard American diet, and you lack enough movement in a day.
Trust me I know the ecomony is bad… I have been feeling all to well. I have been forced to make subsitutes myself… BUT honestly truely its all about Moderation!!!
So if you agree with the woman who is boycotting Abercrombie… try looking deeper into yourself… and put forth the effort… NOT to be a waif model… but to become HEALTHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We only want America to stop looking for the junk food! Its not doing you any good! And I dont mean just weight.
The High Cholestrol rate is growing, the Diabetic rate is growing, the heart attack and stroke rates are growing, the cancer rate is growing! I could go on and on… But seriously and honestly we want you to be HEALTHY!!!!!!!! and unfortunately weight is one indicator of this.
Now like I tell my clients, weight is NOT everything… BUT WHY put that much stress on your body??????????????
here is the original story:
What really has burned me about Etsy is the amount of asian (so called) handcrafters.
Today when I was searching for something specific I came around quite a number of shops… VERY similar….
Coinsidence… I think NOT!
I could keep listing shops… but you get the point.
while I dont doubt they were handmade… I am stating that these are probably sweatshop resalers

I just created this ultra yummy recipe.
I recently made brown sugar pork chops and wanted to use the left overs so this is what I came up with!
1/4 red bell pepper
1/4 orange bell pepper
1/4 yellow bell pepper
diced them and put then in a pan to saute
(using 1 tsp olive oil, 1tbl balsamic vinegar and 1 tbl brown sugar)
2. make 1/2c couscus
3. reheat 2 brown sugar porkchops
when couscus is done , spread on plate
top with porkchops, then with pepper&glaze
So at my work we started this new program.
Along with our workouts we now offer a meal plan. Yes I dont need to diet to lose weight. However, I need to follow it so I can tell our clients about it.
However I discovered something quite alarming!
I have always struggled with low blood pressure… and now I know why…
I dont get enough sodium in a day! So weird since the standard american diet… consumes WAY to much.
The AHAD says we should only consume 1500-2000mg a day. If you workout a lot you will need more because of the sweat (ME).
well I have been wayyyyyyyyyyy under since we started the CC tracking :(
NOW HOW the hell do I get more sodium in me without going too much and risk the high blood pressure the rest of my family has?????
Here I thought the healing of my leg was going so great. I have been going slow… But obviously not slow enough. See my goal is to get up to running 5k… Well… Yesterday I wanted to push a mile… And now I am back at square one. This injury sux!! Royally. I just want to be fit! Damn piriformis!! I talked to our school trainer last night… And umm yeah she even gave me a look that PS is no joking matter. Well it looks like no tough mutter for me AGAIN this year. I have had it with this injury
Ugg it’s been a crazy week… And it shows. I have been only able to run about 1 mile a day… And eating poorly. Hense… I have gained weight this week:( shame on me, I know better. It would not be good to build new fat on the new muscle! But on a positive note!!!! My hip is NOT killing me when I do squats anymore!!! Because I am scared of re- injury. I stick with 25-30 at a time. So sad… But I need to remember how badly I tore the muscle(glute) and pulled the other(hamstring). Horrible pain!! Stick getting hip clicks from the IT band… So I am pretty sure I can’t push real hard. Must try to remember only to exhaust the muscle NOT kill it. Which is easier to do now that I felt that horrible pain of the injury. I am sure I could push a bit harder… But so scared of that pain. Also, clothes still fit the same and measures have not varied! So this past week did not set me back, just a reminder that I need to workout in order to heal the injured muscles.
