how do you say ‘please talk to me more i crave your company’ to someone without sounding like a creep
I keep trying to do progress pictures, but my stomach literally always looks different. In the morning, it’s flat and tight, and then I could drink water and it’s not flat anymore. I can’t tell if I’m making any progress at all and it’s bothering me. Like last night, I pretty much looked pregnant and tonight I don’t… But tomorrow night, I could be bloated again…
I feel like I’m working hard for nothing. It makes me afraid to eat because it’s only when I don’t eat that my stomach stays looking nice… I just don’t understand how a salad or chicken can make my stomach grow like x3 in a matter of two bites…
Finally got back into the gym after being sick for a week. It was so difficult and I feel like I hardly did anything. I went with my brother, best friend, her husband, and the husband’s brother, whose the same age as my brother.
I started off with 25 mins of the elliptical, then did some hip abduction/adduction. Afterwards, we did triceps on the pulldown thingy and then I worked on my back. Then we did some more arm stuff with this 20 lb bar. None of which seemed difficult at all. The elliptical was the hardest part because I’m still so congested and my nose kept getting stuffed up, and my breathing was all fucked up.
So after arms, we went to the ab room. My best friend and her husband started this 30 day challenge while I was sick so I had to do day one, and ended up doing day 2 and some of what they were doing for day 5. Day one was 50 crunches, so I did those with that big ball. Then it was 2 60 sec planks. I always do planks, but I guess after not going for a week, I was having a hard time holding it over 30 secs. Then for day 2, it was 100 bicycle crunches (fuck that shit… I was dying) and another 2 planks, but 30 secs each.
Then I did 100 high knees with my bestie, and leg raises for a min with my brother. Then it was off to do squats! Day 5 of this challenge includes 50 squats, but we almost always do squats. I did like 20 pull-ups while I waited for my turn for squats. Those 50 squats… ugh. The first like 30 were okay, but then everything started to hurt. I think I pulled a muscle in my inner thigh because it was unusually sore whenever I went down. Then we were done. My brother hardly did anything because he threw up and blamed it on a protein shake he had drank earlier. He thought maybe it was expired, but it wasn’t.
Okay so maybe I did do a lot. I could have performed better though. I just feel so weak still. Blah.
I can’t wait to go back tomorrow after work!
things that get me in like the first 30 seconds:
- attractive voices
- jaws doing the thing
- arms doing the thing
- basically any muscle doing the thing
- a+ dressing sense
- smelling good
