I’m dying. Actually dying. Ok, not really, but I feel like I might be. I started a new fitness challenge at a boutique gym in Atlanta and today I’m thinking this is the end for me. I can’t walk up stairs and have had so much spinach I’m afraid I’m going to turn green. I basically am just a large green jello blob molded into my desk chair today.
I decided it was time to get in shape (again) before wedding season picks up (again). I’m so a yo-yo when it comes to weight. I dropped weight for Jamaica and then gained it back. I dropped weight for wedding season part one and then gained it back. I know this is the least healthy way to live ever, but I do it. I’m so tired after work that I just have no motivation to work out. Plus I live in Atlanta and we have the best restaurants ever…not the most healthy, but the most delicious. I have to have an event or something as an end goal to lose weight. With my best friend’s wedding in November…it’s that time again.
So yesterday I started a fitness challenge, and on the first day I found out I am medically considered obese. I kid you not. I almost fell out on the gym floor right there. I’ve always been short and curvy, and have gained a little junk in the trunk since graduating college and starting a desk job, but never did I ever think I was obese. I don’t look obese, but according to my BMI and percentages, I am. I’m having a really hard time coping with that word.
The good news is, being a yo-yo, I know I can lose the weight. I just have to maintain the healthy habits I have while I’m losing weight all the time. This fitness challenge is a great way to kick it off (again)…
Here are some dead giveaways that someone has started a fitness challenge and you probably shouldn’t offer them a bacon cheeseburger:
-They have a purse full of drinks. Green smoothies, water, a protein shake, more water. Literally I left the house today with three full bottles of various liquids in my purse. (PS I have a huge purse)
-They are doing a fun little waddle while walking and are practically crying on the stairs.
-They have no make-up on above their nose because they can’t reach the rest of their face without hurting their arms.
-They’re using the handicapped bathroom because they need the bar to sit down and get back up.
-They’re super duper energized at your morning staff meeting because their endorphins have kicked in from their 5:30 a.m. workout, but then are basically asleep at their desk after lunch.
-They get really nostalgic about bacon.
-Same with cheese.
-They’re super annoying because all they do is talk about their fitness challenge.
Any other dead giveaways when you can tell someone is working out again?
