It’s all so random

Amusing highs include Pops not just saying good morning but actually coming up and talking to me. First to tell me that I have nice arms and then to ask how to tone up without bulking up. Like I’m an expert or something. Ha! I didn’t act like I knew what I was doing. I just told him that I follow an app but mostly got info from Michael, the physical trainer at Planet Fitness. It was really cool, though, that he came to talk to me.

There’s this blonde that I just don’t have a story for. I feel like I can’t because the truth is I really want to be her friend and work out with her. She talks to me. Always says hi when we pass each other, and SHE complimented my arms as well. I wish I knew how to actually TALK to people. There are a few people that come around the same time as I do and it would be nice to have workout buddies.

Well, I think I wanted a workout buddy because I get bored. I’d really been doing the same thing over and over. Rotating the same 5 workouts over 6 days. I kept telling myself I’d spend time adjust the workout but I just don’t know enough to figure it out. So then Meghan told me about FitBod. Yay! Now every day is different! And I’m learning all sorts of new exercises! And everything is getting worked on! I’m not bored!! Whoo hoo!! Who needs workout buddies! Maybe me a little bit.

Today was a weird day at the gym because I wasn’t at MY gym where I know MY equipment. Everything was newer and cleaner and crisper but I couldn’t find a tricep dip machine nor a glute kickback and what the heck where are the mats? The workout took WAY longer that it would have at my gym but I did kind of like being somewhere new.

I got a body scan today. I’m really excited because the last body scan in January was pretty awesome but since then, while I’ve only lost 2 pounds on the scale, I’ve lost 8 1/2 pounds of body fat and gained 6 1/2 pounds of muscle. What the what?! Go me! My body fat percentage went down 5.1%. The bad news hidden inside good news is that I have very little belly fat at all – which means this flab is all loose skin from being morbidly obese and will most likely require surgery to get rid of. But hey! I’m gonna focus on the positive for now. And that’s that I’m healthier than I have ever been in MY ENTIRE LIFE! I have to shout that a bit because frankly I ate like a morbidly obese girl who doesn’t care about her weight at all yesterday. But a poor choice day every once in awhile isn’t going to kill me. In the past, that would have made me just give up. But here I am, back on track today!

Okay that’s it. I wrote. I’m good for another few days

Who knew?

A list of things I’ve discovered I actually LOVE (in some cases every bit as much any random candy):

  • Hummus
  • Raw green beans
  • Tomatoes – particularly grape tomatoes that can just pop into my mouth
  • Sweet potatoes – microwaved and plain with skin on
  • Couscous – which I had been thoroughly convinced I despised. Turns out I like both Israeli and Mediterranean couscous and I know the difference
  • Crunchy chickpeas
  • Riced cauliflower
  • Mashed cauliflower
  • Roasted pretty much any vegetables I’ve come across
  • Smoothies – okay this is vague but I’ve been randomly combining fruits and veggies and greek nonfat yogurt and YUM!

I’ve also discovered that coffee is actually pretty good and I don’t have to have five packets of Splenda and six tablespoons of creamer!

I feel like it’s been this big secret that healthy food tastes pretty damn good! What the heck?!
