I lost my tape measure (hah.. I thought it was called a tape measurer till my best friend corrected me) so I can't officially measure my results. I did measure my calves a few days ago and they did increase by 1/4inch. My stomach looks flatter. Exciting.
The other day, a girl tweeted this image which basically states "Fitness is not 40% gym and 60% diet (or any other percentage). It's 100% to the gym and your diet." I don't know if it's just me but I don't like diets. I've tried them for years and I just abandoned that train for good. I love food. I eat what I want, when I want. Although sometimes I go off the deep end and do something like eat ice cream or a whole bag of cheesies (my weakness) for a meal. But I do have my healthy moments too like when I drink my fruit/veggie smoothies for breakfast. I could probably see better results if I eat clean, but I'm not that type of person. I really like JCD fitness's article called Clean Eating is a Scam and Why You Should Abandon It. Eating clean may work for some, but it doesn't for me. I'm not aiming to lose weight. I try to balance. A long time ago, while I was in the depths of my poor relationship with food, I made the resolution that I was going to enjoy food again. Humans need to eat to survive. I shouldn't be scared and anxious to eat. And now many years later, I'm living by the mantra that food is a pleasure.
Girls night out. I had a fruit smoothie instead of a Bellini due to my low tolerance for alcohol.
And while doing my new hobby of working out, I knitted an emerald green scarf.
Can you spy my poster in the background? I bought the stupid thing for $14 and I don't even look at it. When I did, I realized it sucks. It doesn't give me the specific vertebrae in the spinal column or give a detailed breakdown of each organ. The kidney is broken down into renal medulla and renal cortex. That's it. It did not help me at all when I had to learn about Loop of Henle, distal tubule, proximal tubule, etc. So dumb. Don't buy it.
