 How I Maintain my Weight Through Cardio & Weightlifting

I was inspired to take these photos and write this post as a result of the backlash from all the haters who tore into Maria Kang for the photo she posted of herself and her boys on her Facebook page.  I think she's beautiful, toned and fit and has a tremendous amount of self love and respect for herself. Haters will never understand that kind of self-love because they have never leaned it.  I'm 54 years old and I absolutely love my body and staying healthy and fit.  I will never be a size 0 nor will I be a size 16, but I will always be healthy and fit as long as I am in this body.

I love bike-riding, cycling, power-walking, roller skating and doing yoga, I even ski when the ski season rolls around.  The only thing I don't do is lift weights because of a back injury.  I was riding my bike at the beach one day and my front tire hit something and I lost my balance and fell.  I fell on my side and injured my lower spine.  I've never let this injury throw me into a slump or become a crutch for me to lean on.  I went through long months of  being in pain and even longer months of therapy to get me out of pain.  As a matter of fact, some days I even exercised through the pain.



I'm not getting any younger nor am I trying to be perfect, i'm just trying to stay healthy and fit in the only body that i'll ever have.  The motto that I live by is.... "I'm eating to live not living to eat" and this is not an excuse.
