THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME….these amazing vintage inspired roller skates from Urban Outfitters. You want them, I know you do, and so do I….
When was the last time you roller skated? If you’re like me, it was in the 1970’s, so you probably didn’t realize how much of a work out it was…nor did you realize how much it was shaping your legs, butt, and yes, even your mid-section, where muffintop occurs. Want to get rid of your muffintop, say YES to roller skates.
This is easy for me to do because I have secretly wanted to join the roller derby since forever. Those chicks are beyond bad-ass and I love it! I must admit, it’s the vintage roller derby I mostly fantasize about, the derby chicks today would chew me up and spit me out and I am too much of a wussy to throw myself into that meat grinding action, but here is me in my roller derby fantasy….
Yay me! There I am bustin an outside move.
Roller skating is a fun way to work off your muffintop, and roller derby is one of the fastest growing female sports in the US. I am a fan of team sports for people of all ages. It gets you out moving on a regular basis and the social aspect is a lot of fun. It can be part of an overall exercise program when incorporated with weight lifting and high intensity, short, bursting type of exercise that is necessary for optimal health and muffintop control. (more on this in an upcoming blog)
So when thinking about what you want from Santa this year, think about gifts that will help make a more conditioned you. Whether it’s a pair of roller skates, a rock climbing experience, a gym membership or dance lessons, you being healthy is a gift that keeps on giving to your family for many years…In fact, you being healthy is the best gift you can give to your family, period.
Anyone want to derby with me?
