I wanted this post to have a fancy name but it is what it is…a catch up.
If you have been following me for a while then you know that I have posted about my ‘relationship’ with the gym before. Last year I wrote a blog post ’75kg to the gym you go’ that talked about my goals and my motivation to start going to the gym.
After that, I signed up and went to the gym a few times. Although I felt happier and healthier, I started convicing myself that I looked great and that I didn’t need to go to the gym. My determination started going down as I thought I was just fine and I left the gym after one month.
Since then I gained 5kg. I am now 80kg.
I felt extremely disappointed with myself when I saw that number on the scale. I love my body and that’s why I never felt the need to weight myself but when it affects your health…it’s different.
I am 80kg. My body is 46% fat. Damn.
I went home after that appointment, put on ‘La casa de papel’ and stared at the series thinking about those numbers. I had always been a little fat but this was too much. 46% sounded like a death sentence. I really need something to change.
Since then, I have been going to the gym everyday for a week and I feel great. My motivation and determination is way up high and I hope it stays that way.
I know that with the routine I will have starting in September I woun’t be able to workout everyday but I will try my best.
Loving your body at any shape is great. However, when I was told that that shape is not healthy… no matter how much I love myself, I will have to change. I am sure I will love myself the same or even more.
Can’t wait to feel healthy and energized.
