Anyone else a Friends fan? Well you should be. There’s a great episode where chandler wants to quit the gym.
Up until a week or so ago, this was my mentality.
I’m good looking. I have a great personality. I don’t need a rock hard body or to mold myself to fit society’s idea of what beauty is..
But the fact is folks, I’m very unhealthy.
Am I overweight?
Sure, a little probably, but I can’t walk up a few flight of stairs without being out of breath.
I also have awful awful eating habits. I have a love for soda, and fried food.
I have been relying on my metabolism as much as I can and its time to change my lifestyle.
I’ve gone through periods of this before where I eat healthy and work out for a while but it never lasts.
Now I am in a new apartment, right across the street from my gym and its open 365, 24/7.
No more excuses.
No more, “oh it’s too cold out” “its too far away” “its too late”
I’m excited for this next chapter.
I worked out tonight. I didn’t too too much. I put in maybe 45 minutes.
I’m a little lost there. I’m not sure what all the machines do or how to use them or how I should even work out.
I’m also not used to asking for help. I don’t like it.
So that leaves me wandering through the gym like a lost little pudgy lamb, peeking at everyone else working out to see what they are doing
I took “before” pictures and cringed. I shouldn’t cringe. I should love myself at every stage BUT I’m excited to transform myself.
I will take my picture again in 8 weeks
That’s my goal.
My boyfriend has a company Christmas party that I plan to look stunning for.
The point of all this is to love yourself by being healthy
I’ve taken my health for granted for a long time. And I’m ready to put myself first and make my health a priority.
I also do things all at once.
So I also will be changing my diet. No more soda (gulp) basically just water.
Smaller portions and a more regular eating schedule!
So I plan to be sore, crabby, tired and hungry for a while.
I may try to give updates every week, if nothing else stay tuned to see my results in 8 weeks.
You will all hold me accountable by reading 🙂
