Diet – Back at home
Posted By Gabriela Zabalua On September 30, 2011 @ 3:55 pm In Notebook | Comments Disabled
Like all good plans, Segunda’s began with eating. Devouring tapas  in Spain led to re-discovering how to play, this time in Scotland.
Back home, still reeling from the success of her reinvention tour , Segunda knew she had to bring this lightness into her everyday life, and so did I.
I may have had a lighter spring in my step, but those steps landed, well, a bit harder – and not just from the weight gain from several weeks of indulgence. Like many busy professionals, I had used “not having time” as a convenient excuse for not getting exercise . The next phase of my plan: Hit the gym.
So off I went to a place that often embarrassed me with its complicated machines and pervasive grunting. To lower the intimidation factor, I invested in a trainer to gradually guide me where I needed to go.
This is a long-term investment, but I’m not alone. With every lady-like grunt, I’m getting a bit closer to securing a stronger, healthier future. To help others do the same, I recently joined Decide. Create. Share.  It’s a new AARP campaign aimed at educating women on the importance of planning for a healthy future. Won’t you join me?
