Hello there (all two or three of you?)!
I don't know why, but today it just hit me...no matter how much weight I lose or gain, I will ALWAYS have meaty thighs and a butt...it is just in my genes (and fills out my jeans ;) ) and I need to learn to live with it! Even at my thinnest, I had "thunder" thighs and a big 'ol booty...my butt and thighs have always been the two things I detest most about my body, but today I decided I need to just GET OVER IT! This is obviously easier said than done and will be a constant battle, but it is really just time for me to accept this about my body. Don't get me wrong, this will not be used as an excuse to be lazy, eat poorly, not workout, etc. but I think this revelation will really help me to mentally feel better about my body and be proud of my muscle tone (mixed with a little jiggle that will likely never go away)!
I have been eating fairly well during the weekdays/nights, but still always just let loose on the weekends. I am trying not to beat myself up over it, but at the same time I need to work on making better decisions on the weekends, while still enjoying them.
Today's workout consisted of 15 minutes on the crossramp to warm up, followed by bicep, tricep, ab, and oblique work, then topped off with 20 more minutes on the crossramp. I always do strength training with my workouts, but also always try to do a minimal amount of it and have decided to not be so half ass with it anymore. So today instead of doing only one type of exercise per muscle group (three reps of it of course), I did two...hey, its a step in the right direction, right?
My weekend consisted of tons of fun...just as the past many weekends have. I have lotsa pictures/stories to tell, but in order to make it so this post isn't super long, I will make a separate update about that this week...hopefully Thursday as tomorrow night after work, Lauren and I are going to my parents house for dinner. :)
Off to shower and sleep I go!
