So, I went out to run my little 3 mile run. But, I walked out of my apartment with the wrong set of keys! It was 7:15 and Eddie didn't get off work until 8! I did what any runner who didn't want to stand around cold does, I ran for an hour! I ran the South Lake Union Loop. I have been having problems with my IT band, so I told myself as soon as it started hurting, I would stop. But it didn't hurt me the entire time! I am so excited! I finished my 6 mile run right as Eddie got home. It was the perfect workout!
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!
