So, while I've been sitting on my bum since being home, I've tried to avoid the fact that it is getting bigger, so a few days ago I got up and decided to work out. I really don't work out, I mean really, never. When I was away at school this past year I think I went to the gym twice and I was quite proud of those 2 times. That is SAD.
So I said to myself, Lindsay, if you don't change your ways now, when will you ever? And everyday since Sunday I have worked out for at least 30 minutes. Sure some may say this isn't enough, but hey, I say whatever to that, because 30 minutes a day for the past 5 days is more than I did at school last year.
And I've come to terms with the fact that I don't walk everywhere at home like I do at school, so I am doing much less moving when I'm sitting at home all summer. But, I am highly motivated and ready to lose weight and become more healthy. I'm not one of those thinspo people that's like, I need 0% body fat, but shoot, I want to put on a bikini by the end of this summer and be like, WOW I look pretty darn good. I'm saying I wanna go back to school, go to a pool party and be like this is fun, rather than wow this bathing suit is TIGHT. I mean I don't care if others don't think I'm the next Victoria's Secret Angel (oh why can't I just be Cara Delevigne???), but I want to feel good about MYSELF.
What I do is I track what I eat, so I pay much more attention to how much and what I am eating (it has made me face the reality that i snack like it's a full-time job). This has been a good change for me and honestly, doing this for 5 days is quite the accomplishment in my book. Maybe, just maybe if I write about it on this little blog then I will keep up with it.
Because when you post it on a blog that ish is real, more real than my other get fit attempts have ever been. So, HERE I GO.
Some day soon I will waltz into a pool wherever and probably say
something like "here I am world, take me or leave me" (but not out loud
Wish me luck everyone, or those of you who read this anyways.
^^^that will be me b/c I want one of these bathing suits (Roxy)
