Hi! I am Elizabeth, a 24 year old American living in New Zealand and trying to change my unhealthy lifestyle. This is where I talk about that, and reblog things I find interesting and relevant that pertain to health issues.
I am currently:
5'11 (178 cm)
256.3lbs (116.5 kg)
310 lbs (141 kg)
So, today I went to the gym with Grace, and I really didn’t want to. I mean… ugh. I don’t like being around other people, it terrifies me to a certain degree…
But Grace is going to be my gym buddy! We have plotted out four days a week we plan to go to the gym, and I have sent a few questions to my step mum about working out (this woman did Tough Mudder, teaches step, spin, pilates, and a slew of other things ontop of running ALL THE FUCKING TIME.) so hopefully she will get back to me on those questions soon.
I did 20 minutes on the treadmill, and the thing says I did 200 calories worth… and I know that’s not heaps, but it’s a start. Mostly I was worried about my heart rate being at 210… My heartrate climbs really quickly and I have a difficult time knowing if it is *okay* or not. It’s not like I was running, it was jogging… Ugh.
We then did weights, which I did a few decently, but then when it came to pilates like things… I just.. No. I gave up.
I looked silly, but that’s okay… Even if I didn’t do much, I am back to trying.
I MISS SWIMMING.
It’s been a long time, but… I feel like I am climbing back on the wagon.
my life became 600% better when i started acting like a self obsessed piece of shit like 10/10 would recommend
even if u don’t actually genuinely love yourself its fuckin fun to act like you think you’re the human embodiment of perfection go on try it life’s too short to not fall in love with yourself
Thank you very much! Congratulations on making your goal weight, and good luck to you and all of your future goals as well!
