I haven’t blogged in a few days – really, what was I going to say?
“I ate crap. I didn’t exercise. I feel like crap.”
Who wants to read that?
I did eat crap – and I didn’t exercise, until today. Today, I ate well-ish. And I made it to the gym.
I pushed myself hard because, as the title says, life is too short to stay this fat.
The world likes to be all politically correct.
“She has a hormone problem”
“She’s a BBW – big beautiful woman”
“She’s just fluffy”
“She’s got pretty eyes”
But no one ever says it like it is – because hurt feelings would ensue.
I’m fat. I’m not chunky, fluffy, “round is a shape” or any other politically correct term designed to enable me to avoid the truth.
266.5lbs is FAT.
I haven’t weighed below 240 in years. I don’t own anything you could buy off a rack at a regular sized store – not even my skinny clothes are that small. Oh wait, that’s not true, I do own a pair of jeans and a summer top that are my goal clothes – given to me by my skinny friend.
And life is too short to stay this fat.
I did 30 minutes on the eliptical today. Alpine program, level 5. By the time I hti 27 minutes, my muscles were screaming at me. My lungs were burning. And I pushed through, in fact I pushed harder.
And as I got off the eliptical – I wobbled – but made my way over to the machines for weights. I did an upper body workout that made my arms feel like jello.
I feel so good… And tomorrow I get to go again. Tonight I will do a lovely yoga tape I have – 15 mins of stretching that will help me wind down for sleep so I can get up to go to the gym again tomorrow.
I think I’m finally in the right mindset… :p
