Workout Routines


Working out is the worst, but if I’m going to pretend to be Lara Croft, I’ve got to do it. I set myself a goal for this year, I want to do one pullup unassisted. That and wear high wasted shorts ’cause they’re cute, not to hide my tummy. But we won’t talk about that… And maybe a real crunch, that would be cool too.

My roommate has some resistance bands and we both own two 10lbs weights, so every now and again I’ll use the bands while sitting at my computer. Since I’m sitting there all day, I may as well right?

As for an actual workout routine, she has her own goals, so I’ve been crashing her party too. It’s not much, but it feels like I’m working out at least three or four times a week right now. I say that, we did like three days in a row and my body is SAD! She’s been super supportive and teaching me how to do at home workouts properly.

What Can I Say, I Love My Roommate

I’ve only done a hand full of days with her so far, but I’ve been feeling good and I kind of am starting to enjoy working out. I complain the entire time, but that’s how I cope at this point... Being unmotivated is really easy for me though, I find if I don’t have someone to do it with, than I don’t want to do it at all.
So I just found out that’s called body doubling… And now I’m sad, not actually, my whole life is my ADHD and I’ve accepted it.

What Makes This Year Different?

What a good question! I’ll never do that again... This year is different for me solely because I feel like I actually can be better. This is a year where I don’t feel I need to change who I am, especially not for anyone else. I’m doing this for me, and that’s it.

Being able to hike a mountain for a sunrise, the chance to live a healthier life, and even just to do whatever I want are what I really look forward to. My body has always been an issue for me, and I have the opportunity to beat up my insecurity. That’s kind of awesome, and I’m excited to see what I can do. Plus like, pullups and showing my 18 year old self that we really made it.

Anyway, I’m starving. So that’s it from me today, but we’ll talk soon. Be safe and have an awesome day!
