I have a lot of issues with my body; the way it jiggles and how muscles never seem to be defined. I don’t like that I break out in acne often because of my exercise & facial cleaning routines. I don’t like the way my thighs rub together when I walk or run; not just because I don’t like how it looks, but that’s something that can genuinely hurt.
This past Sunday I slept for almost the entire day, which made it next to impossible to go to sleep. I decided to try out Journey, because the boyfriend said it was a very pretty and calming game, and I thought that may help me relax enough to be ready for bed. Thankfully, that was a correct thought.
I think the whole “new year, new me” trend is a bit hilarious, but if a clean start is the best way for you to get yourself on track, then do it. Hell, it’s what me and the boyfriend are doing! We’ve started watching what we eat, and I’ve been getting up even earlier to exercise daily, but I’m going to talk more about that tomorrow.
It’s been okay, this week. I’ve lost about four pounds, which is awesome. I’ve kept up on my running and eating better. I’m excited about that. But yesterday my mental health issues slammed into the drivers seat and gave a big “f you” to me.
Fangirls, I know I’ve been posting everywhere about my weight loss attempt and the work I’m putting into it. I also know that I talked about it so much everywhere that I thought it would be better just to make a separate instagram devoted to my health work, to keep myself motivated and working hard. One of the biggest challenges I’ve faced is running. My mum has been a runner for her entire life, and constantly was trying to get me to join her. But I wasn’t into it. So when I was told that running can really help you lose weight and gain muscle, my first thought was simply, shit.
