Feel free to ask me any questions or just say hi!
You are not a pear, you are not an hourglass, you are not an apple; you are a human being, with bumps and crevices and scars. You are a million shapes rolled into one. You are a universe within yourself. You are a human being, and you are magnificent.
It never really dawned on me that we compare our bodies to objects in order to label them. I like this post a lot.
Don’t let weight loss run your life. Yes eat healthy. Yes workout. Don’t miss a chance at spending time with friends or having a relationship because you need to workout or you worry about eating out. It’s hard not to obsess sometimes but not obsessing can get you amazing things and to amazing places.
My boyfriend & I spent the week at my parents helping them move. We spent the first two days working out and then helping but by day 3 we couldn’t physically do it, we were so sore and tired from all the heavy lifting.
So the trip was half physical labor and half sitting on our buts but it was 100% eating.
For once, I don’t feel guilty. I had to try on this dress for my brother’s wedding since I’m in it and my weight has been so up and down since I tried it on that I was terrified. I was shaking while trying it on. That’s not normal. But anyways….the zipper didn’t work. I think it was a little too tight but I couldn’t get the zipper up all the way. At first I almost started crying because it didn’t fit and then my mom started saying “I don’t think it’s you, the zipper is stuck.” And well, ok. I’m going to keep trying to lose until the wedding happens so that when the zipper gets fixed it won’t be a huge issue but…I’m still worried. I just want it to fit. I don’t care what I weigh anymore. Yes, I’m still trying to lose but this drove me mad for too long. I have another 5k coming up and then I go home for the wedding. SO.
It’s just frustrating because my mom told me we’d go to a tailor and have it fixed if I helped them move and all she did was have me try it on and say she’d take it somewhere and ask them to add some fabric and fix the zipper. SO.
Anyways! I ran my first “5K”. And was so proud. Until I found out it was actually only 2.2 miles. What a let down. So my first official 5K is May 4th at Animal Kingdom. I’m excited!!!!
As far as this weight loss journey goes…a few weeks ago I had enough of my low calories and added about 300 more a day. And yes, I’m still losing! And yes, dieting got easier!
I have to admit, sometimes I just wish I had someone to talk to about all of this stuff and get opinions.
My boyfriend & I have been running outside for the past two weeks to train for our 5ks coming up. And man. It’s tough. I’ve been running on a treadmill for the past year and can easily run a 5k but once I hit the pavement it got so much harder. Plus now I have horrible shin splints that by day three of training my time and pace are just ridiculous because I’m in so much pain.
I wish I woulda figured out how hard it is to run outside before I spent a year running inside and inside only…oops.
Also, I wish these shin splints would just go away for good.
