It's been quite a while since I posted something blog-y, ha ha! And I finally got something worth sharing, I think. Or at least enough for me to take time out of my Econ project to do so.
But first, I need to be honest and admit something.
I didn't work out for three days last week...
GASP! FOR SHAME, GT! FOR SHAME, I KNOW, I KNOW!
I hear some people get down on themselves for missing a day at the gym sometimes and they don't just get down on themselves - they freakin' dive into the pitty-potty headfirst and with much gusto! I mean, it's like they wait for the perfect chance to tear themselves down.
I can understand that breaking a commitment to yourself can be a heartbreaking thing - but having the strength of self to say "hey, I screwed up, so what? I can and will fix it" is so much better than just being terrified to break a commitment.
I'm not saying go ahead and skip out on your workouts all the time, no, no. Just don't be so down on yourselves!
And now it just seems like I'm talking to myself, now, doesn't it?
But I can assure you I'm not down on myself. I've worked out 29 times in the past one and a half months - that's more than I worked out for the past three years combined! All in all, I'd say I'm doin' good, man.
And going back couldn't be more fun.
Just today, I learned three new names and earlier this week Aussie declared herself my auntie! I've always wanted an Australian relative! XD
Two of the names I learned started with "G" - and the two are both good friends who work out together.
Gee is the older one, but she has the wit and humour of a college student. She's also able to lift more weights than I can, despite being much older.
Gray is the younger one, I think. Though she share's Gee's sense of humour. I've also noted that she seems to be slimming down like mad even with me just seeing her over the course of a month and a half.
Trudy is the third person I've met. She's one of the many teachers who frequent the gym I go to. She's probably near mum's age. She's part of what I like to call "The Book Club" - she always brings a book and reads it as she works out. She's nice and gives me advice on how to use machines so I don't cramp up certain muscles.
And now, just one more thing before I shut up, shower and get to bed.
"It's Good for the Back".
After 1.5 months of regular work outs, I've noticed that I'm not only slimming down everywhere - arms, belly, chin and legs - but my muscles are beginning to define me! I'm no longer following the lines of fat, I'm starting to define myself with strong muscles!
I regularly do 30 back-extensor reverse-sit-ups and at least 1 rep of a 30-sec plank.
As a result, my back isn't as flat and squishy as it used to be. My lower back is strong and curves inwards. I must admit, when I turn a bit to the side to examine myself in the mirror, it sometimes looks sexy. >w<
