Won't you join me!
First of all this is so unlike me to put all my stuff out there. Normally I just ask questions and keep the rest to myself. But following in Chevy6schick's footsteps, I decided to start a journey, in the hopes that I can get help, support and encouragment along the way. With that said if you are going to be mean and cruel, please don't comment. Like I tell my first graders, if you don't have anything nice to say then say nothing at all
To start, a little background. I'm a 27 year old teacher. I love my job especially the stress that comes with it. I take my work home with me a lot so I stay busy. I grew up playing basketball, softball, running track and swimming. I wasn't happy unless I was outside playing some sort of a sport. I guess you could say I was a tomboy, but a cute one atleast! haha...any way, after hs, I kept up with the gym for a year, then I decided to party like a rockstar. Getting older, and eating like crap and not doing anything but go to class, well you can imagine, I gained weight. Now 140, may not sound like a lot to some of you. But keep in mind I'm practically a midget at 5'0 so, that is a lot of weight for me to carry. I went through spurts after college of working out, then not, then doing it again. But life always got in the way. I'm sick of the excuses I'M making and have no one to blame but myself. I decided to make some life changes in fitness and other personal areas. So this is the start of it.
I started making a workout/nutrition binder. I have my goals written out, I have some inspirational quotes, and some "before" photos. I don't feel the need to post my measurements on here, not sure I'm comfortable with that. But my trouble areas are my stomach, and arms. I've always had some thighs and a booty, guess I could tone those thighs, but I hope my booty stays. My boyfriend loves it too much lol. Any way, that's all I will say about my body type, midget, wanting to tone a few trouble spots and make some life changes in healthy eating and workout habits.
So far, I've lost 1 pound by dieting alone. I'm giving up monster energy drinks, which I LOVE, and drinking green tea instead. I've also cleaned out a room in the back that includes all of my workout gear. I'm starting the workouts on Friday. I wanted to try the "diet" first and try and get my body accustomed to that.
I guess that's all for now. I will update this soon. Look forward to hearing what you all have to say. Be nice, or I will have my 19 6 year olds come find you.
