I know I promised more crazy blog posts this year…however, it has been crazy!
This is just a quick update post on the happenings in my life thus far.
So I have decided to take control of my health and I have joined CrossFit.
WTF!!! I know it’s extreme for a non-athlete like myself but I needed something that was going to kick my butt into shape.
It has been a painful month….I have discovered muscles that I honestly did not know existed. There have been days when I couldn’t sit, stand, walk or function but it has been amazing.
Each session pushes me to a point that I never knew I could reach. I have to admit that there are times when I just lay there like a moaning starfish on the gym floor (true story lol) because my body has reached its limit but I take it a day at a time.
I am not going into full (as the gym experts call it) “BEAST” mode but more like a soft cuddly teddy bear looking to lose the hibernation weight gain.
I have been asked by my sibling to document the journey to give hope to people like me. Honestly, the thought of taking a before selfie is killing me.
Self image has always been an issue that I have faced but I always make the most of the situation and get comfy.
This year I am getting out of the comfort zone and kicking my own butt. I choose to love myself enough to eat better and exercise more….because I am worth it (stretch marks and acne scars included)!
I am looking at documenting the journey monthly with details of how it is going and maybe I will be brave enough to take a picture.
My goal overall is to lose 30kgs but I do know that I may not lose it all due to muscle gain. This is not a overnight fix and I have decided to make it a lifestyle change so that I can maintain it.
Let me know your thoughts 🙂

P.s – quick depression update …I am proud to say that after a year and a half on meds, I am officially off anti-depressants.
