Tonight I ran the 6-ish mile Lake Union Loop. I went the opposite way then I used to, which starts with a long steep hill. So, I was really tired the entire run, and you can tell by my calories burned!
I never thought of myself as "fat". I knew I was out of shape, but to tell you the truth I didn't care. I was the chubby kid, always have been. I really thought that was just the way I am. I didn't work out in high school. I tried Cross Country one year and finished last every single race, besides once because someone else didn't finish.
I went to college and did the opposite from taking care of myself. I ate fattening sorority food and drank... A LOT. I came out even "chubbier".
Around November, I don't know why, but I can only explain it as a "wake up call". I seriously woke up one day and realized I didn't want to be like this my whole life. So I started working out. I started using the elliptical for 20 minutes and was barely being able to make it.
Now, I am working out almost every day and obsessed with making myself as fit as possible.
Since then, I've lost about 45 pounds and 4 jean sizes. I feel phenomenal!
You'll be able to read my frustrations and accomplishments. And hopefully I can help to motivate you too!
Welcome to the wonderful world of being physically fit!
