An old picture of yourself, and tell us your thoughts:
This was about the oldest picture I could find of myself. I haven’t changed much since then, besides having a slightly better taste in fashion and a much better hair cut (none of that 8 inch side bangs crap). This was taken probably 3 or 4 years ago. I still like my smile in this picture, even though it’s a little crooked since I don’t wear my retainer like I should…
A list of things you like about yourself, at least 5:
There. Double 5. I could probably go on longer, and I’m okay with the fact that I love a lot of things about myself. (:
Introduce yourself and tell us why you started this challenge.
I’m Sydney! I’m a sophomore in college starting this fall and I’m a choral education major.
I’m trying to get back into working out and get back into shape. I gained about 25-30 pounds my first year of college, and I’m not super pleased about it. However, the thing about my weight gain is most of it is natural. I lost about 15 pounds over the summer (rather unnaturally) and gained it all back rather quickly the first couple months of college when I started eating again. A lot of it went to my hips and my boobs because I started birth control.
I’m doing this challenge because, quite frankly, I need to learn to accept my body before I can begin to change it. I’d like to lose 15 pounds, but I know I’m not going to be happy with my body even after that unless I just learn to love it how it is now. I’m tall, I’m curvy, and that’s okay. Now I just need to get healthy and fit.
So, my plan of action for tomorrow:
Sounds like a lot, but after seven hours of classes, working out is usually great stress relief actually.
I give up for today.
All I’ve done is eat the past two days. You could say binge, but I’m not entirely sure it’s the clinical definition of binge. All I know is I’m nauseous and crampy from all of the shit I’ve eaten, so I planned my food today so I don’t die.
I made it through the first eight minutes of Jillian’s 30-Day Shred and gave up. I just feel like shit today. So no exercise for me until I feel like I’m not going to vomit everywhere. Only healthy food today.
