BBW or Rubenesque…


One of my New Year’s resolutions is to move out of the category of BBW or as I prefer, Rubenesque woman…a voluptuous, curvy, plump woman!!

I will be back in training in my walking, preparing for the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon set for April 25, 2010.  I am setting my goal at doing the Half-Marathon, which is 13.1 miles.  It will be a Friday through Sunday event…I honestly don’t know if I start training now and get really serious, if I will be ready to race walk this race.  I have also set a goal for walking the Tulsa Run next October.  I wanted to do it this past October but my arthritis flared up and I didn’t get on my prescription medication in time to provide the relief to continue my serious training…so, to me, it’s now or never.  I know that sounds rather dramatic but I’m 51-years-old and if I don’t get serious about my health and physical condition, I won’t be able to continue my life at a decent pace over the next 25-years!!!

While I prefer Rubenesque…I’d prefer to be called healthy and fit!!  Not aiming for “skinny” but I want to be able to wear all the clothes I have in my various closets!!!

How’s your New Year’s Resolutions going?
