Exercise to extra fries.
Loosing weight naturally
I once said in my 100lbs recently lost body that losing weight naturally was one of the hardest things I had ever gone through.
I was completely wrong! Losing weight then gaining 70% of it back only to attempt losing it again plus some is by far worse!
I’m sure there are those who wonder how it happens, how you go from exercise to extra fries.
Well I’m not sure about others but I have my own special little recipe.
1c. No time
1/2c. French fries
1/2c. Added sugars
1 tsp I’ll start tomorrow
Mix it all together and you have 2 years of hard work and dedication ruined!
That isn’t to say that I just completely broke up with the gym.
There were times when a pair of pants just wouldn’t button so my determination would kick back in for about a week then slowly fade off into the distance.
Yet nothing ever truly got me back to where I should be until recently.
I’m a poor girl living in a wealthy town and just my luck they have an amazing gym!
Well about 3 months ago I became aware of this news and ran right out to get a nice brand new and shiny membership. Then of course I set it to the side and allowed it to gather dust just as I had with my previous membership!
Well after 2 months of having $100 less I made a deal with myself! I was going to use it or lose it! I told myself it was no longer an option and being my healthiest is what was best not just for me but also my family.
Well there’s the hustle part so of course you guys know the humor has to follow!
Well I have a friend who is also on her fitness journey but on a different path and asked if I would like to attend Camp Gladiator with her. I said yes knowing that group workouts weren’t ranked high on my list but that one of the best things you can do is change up your routine and try new things.
Friday morning I wake up at 4am!!
I put on my cute new gym shirt that says “My head says gym but my heart says wine!”, down my pre workout, and blast my gangster music the whole 15 minutes there.
I get out of the car with my confidence at a level 10.
I walk up to where a really nice and seemingly non threatening lady greets and welcomes me, then she offers me a yoga mat. Then the next words out of her mouth are completely horrifying and soul shattering.
“Ok guys we’re going to begin our warm up! I want you guys to give me 10 crunches, 10 jumping jacks, 10 push-ups then a lap around the building”.
I look over at my friend and she is smiling you guys, like she didn’t just lure me to my death!
After the first lap, I inform this friend that my heart hurts and she responds with “that’s good, it means you’re alive”. So with what I’m sure is my dying breath, I inform her that it could also mean my heart is about to explode and that I’m thankful I wore my nice panties for when the EMT’s come to revive me back to life!
The 2nd lap I considered running straight to my car and burning off into the sunrise but I didn’t guys! I stayed and I died over and over again only to push through.
A hour later, as I crawled to my car. I did so with a smile on my face because I pushed myself mentally and physically to do something I assumed I no longer could.
Will I ever return to Camp Gladiator? Maybe. Will I continue my healthy life style? Yes!
Will my heart always say wine? Every single time!
