So, it’s summer. And summer is bikini season. And while I don’t buy into the hype that women need beach-ready bods (I mean, otherwise I’d actually try to get a beach-ready bod, you know, before bikini season), I like to feel good about myself. And when I’m sporting a 31” waist and natural 34DDD
which look more like 36 DD but who the fuck actually cares since they’re boobs and therefore wonderful I feel pretty good about myself.
I’m still doing that. But I want to feel better, not just psychologically, but physiologically as well. This translates to exercise and eating better. Today and this weekend aren’t really the best examples of me trying to eat better (Those days were filled with Southern grill-out fare and all manner of things chocolate between social functions and period). But I did exercise today and yesterday.
Yesterday, I went on a longish
for BF and his little dog walk around the neighborhood. Today, I did ~2 minutes of alternating kicks (I don’t know what else you would call it), 30 seconds of planking, 6 reps of inchworm (the thing where you walk with your hands), and… 30 reps of high knees (where 1 rep = high knee once with each knee).
I feel woefully unfit. At least strength and high-intensity workout-wise. Because I can walk forever. But I’m up and moving, and that’s what’s important. I’ll just increase it a little every day, and with my added usual walking to and from work/school, I’ll have a little bit of high-intensity cardio and a little stength/muscle toning along with the recommended 30 minutes of light-moderate cardio 3-4 times a week.
I might start intermittent fasting along with it by skipping lunch or having a small, healthy snack (I have like 9 oranges and 4 lbs of apples to eat). But I definitely want to cutback/stop drinking soda again. I’m good on the weekends, but work and school kill me with it. So, tea and water is my mantra.
So ends my babblings about fitness goals and eating habits that no one on the internet actually cares about.
