Lydia’s AbsoluteFIT Journey – “Fair” Is Only for Renaissances and Counties

via – Lydia M., AVAC’s AbsoluteFIT blogging goddess


men weightYou wanna know what’s not fair? How easy it is for men to get and stay fit.

Example: My husband, who found out recently at a company-sponsored health fair that he is A) not only an inch taller than he’d self-reported for the last 20 years or so (WHAT??), which is already taller than average, but also B) currently at 16 percent body fat, with the blood pressure of a TODDLER. What does he do to stay fit? Oh, you know … he runs a few miles three times a week.

Not. Freaking. Fair!!! I mean, I’m glad for him, honestly, but the amount of effort I have to put in — with AbsoluteFIT, food tracking, etc. — to get results vs. how little it takes for him? Gaaaaaah!

“Fair,” however, is neither here nor there — everyone’s fitness journey is theirs alone, and the factors at play are many indeed (genetics, gender, effort, time available, predilections for ice cream vs. the vegan entree, etc.). Also, I fully recognize that I have it easy compared to a lot of people — I’m certainly not complaining, especially since I really do enjoy my AbsoluteFIT program and the sense of accomplishment I get from working at it.

But way back at the start of this lifestyle makeover, I promised you all honesty, and so here it is: Dang it! I want a metabolism like Mr. Suddenly-Six-Foot-Three! Waaah! [shakes fist at sky]
