Today I really really felt a change in my fitness, and that was so awesome! I do two back-to-back classes on Sundays, and this week was the first that I kept going through both of them without a break. There aren’t any real visible results yet (except man I have an actual bicep muscle! Like, that you can see and everything!) but feeling my fitness level heighten is so much more rewarding anyway.
Even managed to get through 90 burpees over the second hour! I absolutely loathe burpees.
I went food shopping this morning and didn’t give into a single temptation. All health, all week for me!
Also, I always wear my nicest dress once I’ve showered after my Sunday sessions, and I’m not sure why. I guess it just makes me feel better!
asked "how come you're unhappy with yourself? you look good to me :)"
Thank you!!! I’m skinny-fat though, I have a fast metabolism but I’ve spent 19 years eating terribly and doing no exercise, so though I’m not overweight I’m really unfit. Changing that though!
I finally hardened up and asked the instructor at my gym to show me some basic dumb-bell exercises and the proper form for them. Super toned arms, here I come!
I always see on my dash how there aren’t enough pictures of larger ladies working out, so I asked Lovie to snap a few pics during our workout. Sadly, I missed more of the hardcore activities before I thought to ask for pics, but you are left with these lovely jewels for some Fat-Girl-Fitspo <3
I’m 265lbs. I look like sh*t at the gym. I know I am ‘fat as hell’ and not very ‘hardcore’ in some b*tch a** anon’s opinion, but clearly: IDGAF. I run hard. I do CrossFit. I do MetCon. I Olympic Lift. I IGNORE everyone who tells me I can’t or that I shouldn’t because of my size: F*CK THAT. You can do anything you set your mind to with proper practice/training, which doesn’t mean you need a trainer. All you need is a capability to read, to watch, or to follow after others. Teach yourself. Be your own GD role model and ROCK THAT SH*T. If I can do it, you can do it and I will be here to help and inspire and answer anything you wanna ask, so long as I am Tumblin’. Well…unless you’re a rude anon b*tch, then you can enjoy failing at making me feel bad, because idgaf <3
I just fucking love this photoset, if only because I’m sick of seeing bitches lifting weights with a smile on their face like it’s the easiest thing in the world. If you look pretty lifting weights you’re doing it wrong
Had to force myself not to go to the gym today so that I could focus on uni work - need to remember that my degree is the very TOP of my priorities!
I’m having a really weird time right now, in that I don’t have motivation to do anything except go to the gym. Which is good for my fitness, but terrible for my uni work. So I’m desperately trying to solve that.
I’m also a little worried that myfitnesspal is saying that I’m not getting close to hitting my calorie goal, ever. I thought I was eating normally but I’m only getting about 1200 calories, even on gym days, which apparently isn’t enough. So I don’t really know what to do, I’m just not hungry enough to eat any more than that.
That aside, I’ve been doing really well this week to get back into the swing of going to the gym most days now I’m back in Manchester, so I’m happy with that. I’ve realised that classes are far more motivating for me than using the fitness suite by myself, so I’m hoping to try out all the classes I can and find the ones that I really enjoy.
