Maybe you have heard this song before:
I'm a fatass. I need to stop shoveling food into my face.
Not here, or here?
I was so young, so naive, so full of hope back then. :::sigh:::
Maybe you should start, I dunno, paying attention?
It's high time I REALLY recommit (for as long as possible, I guess----I'm trying to be realistic!) to being a better me.
I have made great strides in not being such a freaking bitch. I am meditating more, and working on a lot of personal shit.
But the one thing I don't have on lock, the one area I am substantially failing, is weight loss. A year ago, I was down 20-ish pounds.
Well folks, I found them. Meanwhile, we continue to pay the gym to keep their doors open, without the hassle of them having to actually see our faces. See how generous I am to the local economy?
Well, selfish Aimee is back. Because I am sick of the XLs. I want more Ms in my closet. Less XLs, more Ms. The hope is that the loss of hunks of fat will lessen the burden on my knees. And the exercise will help my meds work. And will make my sciatic nerves less bunched up and tight, causing acupuncture needles to wiggle, they are so inflamed. (You're welcome for the visual of a bunch of needles, sticking out of my flabby ass, twitching as if the needles themselves have Parkinson's.)
So, I perused the online class schedule. There is was: GIT. Group Interval Training. It's a class where you go in and hang out in a certain area for 45 minutes, changing machines and floor exercises in 2 minute, 2 minute, 1 minute intervals. It doesn't get boring, you get to chat with your fellow chubs, and make jokes. Like when the trainer says, "if you like running, these series of lunges are GREAT!" while I mutter, "If we liked running, we wouldn't be hanging out here, with cookie crumbs on our horrifically insufficient sports bras". Or, when the trainer says, "there you go, nice and slow", and I snarkily reply, "slow? Yeah, we GOT slow----like a BOSS".
Is that just me?
Anyway. I went. I dragged Sky King. We did the whole thing, and did not use ice cream as a reward, so all in all, it was a success.
Now, Lather, Rinse, Repeat.
Wish me luck, and pray for my Lycra.
