So yeah.. I joined a gym back in mid November. I thought it was time to stop feeling sorry about myself. I work a desk job, and most of my friends have families (can't go out), so I get little to none physical activity.. and I decided to change that. I've been going 2-3 times a week since then.. (average is I guess 2.)
I have tried to keep with workout programs before, and I could never stick with them, I guess because I was focusing so much on losing weight. It was disheartening to see others that were already taller and thinner than me losing more inches/ weight off them than me with half the effort I was putting in (and I'd never cut down on my nutrition.) I know I shouldn't have compared since we're all different, but I did anyways.
I used to be pretty chubby in highschool, so I guess I've always just been hard on myself. Before I joined the gym, I wouldn't have said I was particularly fat, but I wasn't happy with myself at all.
This time I decided to say.. well.. screw that. I'm weak and I'm going to build up my strength. I'm tired of struggling to carry groceries a 10 minute walk from the store. I'm going to focus on my health more- especially now that I have an office job.
I don't have any before pictures I feel comfortable with showing (not now anyways.. I feel too embarrassed even though it's the recent past.)
But I feel comfortable enough now to show some:
It feels really weird because I was ALWAYS really self-conscious about showing off my belly. I don't even own a bikini! Just 1-peice bathing suits!
Anyways, I just wanted to blog my progress as I'm finally pretty content with it. I am going to keep it up to keep my fitness levels up and keep myself healthy... and I just wanted to share my personal success with you all.
PC's MEETUP VENDAK EDITION!
I also met with Vendak a few months back.. I think it was.. what? 3 Months or so! It was really fun! Mr. Catdog and Vendak and I went around London in Camden Town and then to look for some nice teas. :3 I really enjoyed it! Sadly I only had one pic of us both and where it doesn't have horrible flash (I hate flash SO much..) so it's a bit dark! But I wanted to share it anyway!!!
Ahh memories! :3 Was good fun and we are definitely going to meet up again! We found a great pub near Covent Gardens so we will hopefully hit that again!~
Guess that's all for now, PC!
