Yeah it really is. You can spend 2 hours in the gym and it’s fine, it’s what you do with the other 20 that’s important. Thanks so much :)
As silly as i sounds, just get out there and be active. If you drive/get the bus walkable distances, start walking, fit in 30 minutes of cardio on a daily basis, just do whatever activity you can. Also, cut out all the bad/processed foods from your diet, stop snacking as much, and replace bad snacks with healthier alternatives.
It took me 18 montsh to get to this point :)
I don’t think there’s really anything you can do with them. Sure there’s tons of things out there aimed at fading them, but I think I’ve reached the point now where I can live with them. I used to hate them notoriously, because they’re pretty much all over my body, but after how hard I’ve worked to get myself in this shape, I feel like they’re just a battle wound; they show how far I’ve come, and I can deal with them :)
I was a UK 18-20 before and now I’m an 8 :)
Hey :) That’s quite alright.
It depends on what part of my journey I was on. In the beginning I started with 30 minutes of cardio 5/6 times a week, then I increased it up to 60, adding basic weight training. I limited my calorie intake to about 1,400/1,500 during that period, and basically stayed off any fast food/anything processed unless I was on cheat days. I also maintained weight from about January this year until June, because I was just going out a lot so ended up overeating, but because I stuck with the gym I managed to maintain. Then when uni was basically over for this year I got stricter with my diet again, and incorporated additional exercise. In total to get to where I am it’s taken 18 months :)
Presuming you’re referring to my PCOS and RA; I think it kinda depends on the day. My PCOS isn’t that much of a big deal anymore, sure I can’t really eat carbs like regular people do, but on a day to day basis that’s not really something that affects me at this point in time. My RA is really difficult, especially because of the time of my life I’m in right now. But I take every day as it comes, that’s what I have to do. Sometimes it gets me really down, especially when I’m having a really bad flare and can barley make it out of bed, but I just get on with it, it’s the only thing I can really do.
