I am over the age of 50. I have noticed within the last 10 years how hard it is to lose weight. Things are changing in the body department. I decided to do something about it. I did not want to be the typical over 50-year-old American. Let’s face it, we don’t take care of ourselves. I REFUSE TO BE THE STATUS QUO.
I started seriously walking again in April of this year. It has been a long road. I have not lost a lot of weight. I have lost a lot of fat. I have changed my eating habits. My body is changing. I actually have a muscular core. Fat is disappearing from my thighs, waistline and calves. My arms are getting thinner as well. This is from walking only. I don’t like gyms, free weights, etc. I like to be outside seeing the beauty of outdoors.
A challenge for me has been finding age appropriate work out clothing. A crop bra and skin tight leggings is not going to work. I don’t care how fit I am, I will never dress in that getup at this age.
This picture shows what not to wear at age 50 and over! I won’t wear that. I am constantly on the lookout for something that is comfortable and versatile. I found these great jog pants from the Avon Curves line of fitness clothing.
Here is the description from the Avon website about these pants.
Curves® Ultimate Jog Pant $14.99
Ultra-lightweight. Ribbed waistband and trim. Super-flattering ruching enhances your curves, while the wicking fabric keeps you dry. Polyester/spandex. Machine wash and dry. Imported.
While Supplies Last
I have worn them for the last 2 days. I absolutely love them. The only problem is they are in limited sizes. I purchased a large. They are very roomy. The pockets are deep enough to hold my Samsung Note 4. The pants have a drawstring waist which makes them extremely comfortable. The pants have a lot of give due to the spandex. The fabric is a wicking type fabric. I love these pants. I think they would be great for runners. Check them out HERE #WorkingoutafterAge50 #workoutwear
