Oh dear, my body hurts so much these days. I've been attending gym and doing weight exercises for my legs, arms, back, shoulders and chest. And I'm doing a whole lot of abwork and that painful exercise called 'planking' which makes me scream in my head so many stupid swear words.
It's also a whole lotta ugly when I leave the gym, red faced, sweaty chest and matted hair. Panting like a dog. I wouldn't want to bump into myself at the gym. But hey, I've been making up excuses for a whole year not to go to gym and take care of my body. I'm forever complaining that I lose my breath walking up a small flight of stairs and about my non-existent thigh gap.
But, that's why we're allowed second chances, when you cannot keep making up excuses any more (work, fatigue, heart-ache). Like my broken relationship right now, I feel I need a fresh start or at least to take care of myself first before opening up my heart to someone new or to cherished loves ones. First, I start with my health which brings about them natural endorphins and non-jiggly body parts which makes me feel good about myself and then that will reflect my mood, my mental health and the enthusiasm I have for blogging (self-conciousness out the door when taking photos). It's like a ripple of positive energy in my life.
Second chances. I don't want to screw up Life this time (well mainly, my relationships with men), I just want to move forward with commitment, courage and most importantly, honesty.
Thanking Riders by Lee (Australia and NZ) for providing me these beautiful slouch shorts that hug my hips nicely but allow for a slouchy loose fit for my relaxed and casual Aussie style.
