When I developed Hypoglycemia I changed my whole diet and lost weight. I maintained that weight easily with my new "lifestyle" so last time I tried to start working out, I quit the second I started gaining weight. Now, I know this was just the beginning where your body is taking in more fuel and your muscles are bulking up, so I wasn't really gaining weight, but I quit anyways :( I figured that since I could maintain by not working out, it wasn't worth the effort.
For whatever reason, I became inspired to go to the gym with Will on the weekends and enjoyed our time together, but now it has turned into more. I don't feel like it's a chore, and even now that I am at the point where I quit last time, I still want to keep going.
I'm really doing this...
I have been going to the gym three times a week.
I've been legit running at least six miles per week.
I have a Pinterest board titled No Pain, No Gain.
And Will even called me a gym rat ;)
Saturday, I took my physical fitness to the next level by introducing myself to Ms. Michaels for the first time. I thought that I could handle her videos for sure.
Those of you that have used her dvds are probably laughing at me right now...
But seriously...how does one continue to follow her program if they are so sore they can't walk?
I would really like to continue with these, since I bought a Groupon with three of 'em, but I don't know how you keep at it if you need two days worth of recovery after each workout.
Please...someone tell me that it gets easier.
So I guess, I should post some stats?
5'3.5 (the .5 totally counts)
Current weight 114
Arms: 10 Bust: 34 Waist: 28 Hips: 34 Thighs: 20
I actually don't care of any of these numbers change. I guess I wouldn't mind if the hips go up and the thighs go down, but this new hobby of mine isn't about "losing" weight; it's about being healthy
One more thing, you should check out Nikki's post about workout myths. This girl has an amazing weight loss story, and she inspires me constantly. Also read Does This Uterus Make Me Look Fat if you want some real perspective and a good laugh.
According to Wikipedia I am a "Banana Shape" and that will just not do. My nickname may be Banana, but that does not sound like a good body type. Now if only I could send all the fat cells to my hips...
