Natural Hair

This isn't cute anymore:

I’m 31, the new 30 and I’m closer to my goal than when I started this blog. Now I’m trying to stay on the path that will get me healthy and on the other side of the clothing store. I’ve had my revenge moments and they felt great. Now I’m ready for more of those great moments, maybe this year I’ll propel down something, who knows. But I’m held back by 40 less things.

So I didn’t fuck it up. I am 239.5 according to the fancy gym’s scale (this gym is more spa like with more services offered and had an open house) and I feel after this holiday weekend, it is right. I’ve been squeezing in workouts after class since the summer session started. I failed to realize the time constraint, what a dumbass.

One thing that’s happened that is not cool, my boob to stomach ratio. My tire, I fear out pokes my boobs, which was always something I liked about my body. And it’s lower – I’m freaking out a bit out the loose skin that may very well occur with my weight loss. I’ve come to terms that with my stretch marks I’m not going to be rocking a bikini ever and I’m alright with that.
On the bright side I went through my old summer clothes and it was like shopping. Some tops that were tight that I saved anyway in hopes of fitting them FIT! And some are even a little baggy. I’m wearing my “army dress” which became unflattering last year, but it now fits and it baggy! Whoo fucking hoo to that. It’s bitter sweet, my favorite maxi dress looks like a hot sack o mess on me now, don’t know how it ever looked right, but I will be passing that on to my cousin who got my black denim pencil skirt.

Other changes I’ve made, I’ve just started C25K. Like yesterday, just started. I’ve always secretly wanted to be a runner so why not. I spent some time on Friday getting acquainted with my gym’s treadmill and ended up running for a minute just to see if I could do it and I could. I was a little unsure about the actually C25K training, but I did it and boy did I sweat and boy was I proud when it was over. I increased my run speed from 3.9 to 4.5. Silly, but I was just afraid to run. I still don’t like the jiggling from the running, but hopefully that will be gone soon. Until then, maybe I’ll get some tight running pants to go under my pants, as it is a wear three bras to workout – I have a system! Don’t judge me.

Today is suppose to be a rest day, but I ate a taquito and a churro from the lunch meeting my job had… and I do have homework to do… what to do what to do? Day 1 over again and then go do homework and study? Or do the elliptical and then do homework? Or let the decision rest on weather my gym clothes (don’t judge) are dry.
