Sausage + Peppers

Have I already revealed that I don’t do exercise?

It’s not a secret. I’m either binge watching something, cooking or sleeping. I just don’t have time to sweat. My metabolism has, thus far, been my BFF. I eat all the things I want & nothing happens. When it does happen, I stop eating Oreos & it stops happening. That’s just how it’s worked for me. I didn’t choose this life, OK?

As I enter into my old age, I find my skin starting to just kind of hang on my bones. My body is betraying me & I’m upset. Luckily, my husband is basically a body builder. His new hobby is something called “olympic weight lifting” – I have no idea. I’ve resisted lifting weights with him until my Women’s Health had an article telling me that it would not bulk me up & make me look I’m on roids!!! So I did it.

It was all fine & dandy. I’m naturally good at just about everything so lifting a barbell over my head was nothing different. Except no one told me what my body would feel like two days later. The only picture I can paint is me walking around like a giant branch is up my butt. It’s just unreal. Some muscles in my legs have decided to go completely numb & stop working???? Idk. I’m over it, though.

Just gonna stick to depriving myself of Oreos when I feel chubby.

    Omfg I can’t. I feel you. I do make myself sweat though because my metabolism doesn’t like me. I eat like 4 almonds and drink a glass of water and I’m two pounds heavier.

    I started to run that couch to 5k program just so I can literally have 1 more snack a day. It’s pavolvian in nature; I’ve trained myself to equate sweating with snacks. It’s the only reason why I do it 👍

      “Sweat & you get a snack” would be our motto as personal trainers. Imagine how many people would be signing up for our services. & it’s not pavlovian – you SHOULD get rewarded for doing heinous things. 😉

        🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 preach girl, preach. 🙏
        It’s that extra slice of cake that gets me through every time my boyfriend asks “Hey baby, want to go for a run today?”

        I’ve had days where I’ve eaten like an animal then ran and ate chocolate. It’s all about balance or something. 😏
