A Change in Pace

I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed with all my school work, which is why you probably noticed I haven’t been posting much on my blog. Also because, most of the topics I tackle on my blog require background sources that I just don’t have the time to look for. But I promise, I will get back to stimulating content very soon. For now, the only content I can give you is personal, subjective, and probably of zero interest to you. But again, what the heck, my blog, my decision, amirite?

I have been meaning to write about a certain goal of mine that so far I have been accomplishing quite nicely. I even believe this has to do with one of my news years resolutions that I posted about this time last year. That is becoming more fit.

I know. Vague. But hey, baby steps. If I were to begin with some intricate plan with all these steps and complications, I probably would have given up easy. My advice when you start big projects, start small and build your way up. Which is what I’ve been doing.

Around this time last year, I became a member of a very prestigious gym in my area. It is called Movati. It’s less of a gym and more of an elite club. I’m not joking. Its got a lounge, a pool table, two swimming pools, a sauna, a steam room, and a super intense workout basement for people who actually go crazy. It’s pretty rad if you ask me.

Anyway, point being, I joined the gym and then naturally didn’t go for a few months. But two months ago, they had an interesting competition going on. The competition had two parts: 1) whoever can lose the most weight and 2) whoever can gain the most muscle. Whoever wins in each of these categories gets $2000. Crazy. I know. I signed up for the competition and went to the gym 5 times a week with the goal of gaining the most muscle. let’s be honest here, I wouldn’t get very far if I chose the “lose the most weight option” since I’m already quite tiny.

For the entire competition, I worked myself practically to death, just so that I could gain muscle and tone my body. The results are actually kind of cool. I mean, I feel stronger, my muscles are actually defined, I can lift heavier objects, I can do harder exercises. It is crazy to see how much of a difference two months can make.

I’ve often thought about documenting my progress, y’know the way fitness instagram gurus do it? Have a little page for myself where I can post pictures of my progress, my exercises, my fitbit information – I mean this baby is telling me my sleep cycle. I mean, I follow a bunch of fitness gurus on instagram because they actually inspire me to try ew work outs that I would have never thought of. But sometimes, the exercises are too advanced for someone who sees it more as a hobby than a job – lets be real, for many of these people it probably is a job. So I also wanted to make an account for beginners to follow, to show them that the gym doesn’t have to be intimidating. Anyway, I have my own instagram page if you want to follow it. It has nothing on it but it will soon, hopefully.

Who knows, maybe I’ll even have a link to my blog with some exercise and nutrition tips! But don’t hold me to that…
