So I just created my very first PB! I just ran for two kms WITHOUT STOPPING! I have never done this in my entire life. When I finished my legs weren't burning and I wasn't puffing like I used to. It was such a weird, amazing, awesome feeling. I kind of didn't believe it actually. Six months ago I couldn't run 50m without feeling out of breath. But since starting with my amazing trainer Erin and the equally amazing fellow gym buddies, I now find myself in this momentous occasion. It may not seem like much to most of you, but for me I feel like I just made it to base camp of Mt Everest.

• OUCH • today’s run was not very enjoyable. Lots of problems, couldn’t keep to a good pace keep fluctuating between 11mm and 12mm, heavy legs for 3 miles then felt like I was flying for 3 miles! Boobs were bouncing too much, clearly need a new sports bra 😂 bra strap was rubbing, definitely need a new sports bra 😂😂, my nostrils were burning with the cold and my ITB is playing up. But all these problems are easily fixed and I’m so glad I ran today so I can have a lie in tomorrow 😀
Not super hungry tonight. I ate a late lunch at 5 guys for the first time (meh, nothing amazing but that might have just been me projecting my complete frustration with attempting to shop for bras today, unsuccessfully). So supper is cucumbers with ranch, and a couple home made wings.
For real though, HOW DO YOU BREAK A SPORTS BRA??? And the one I have one is about to snap!
All my big boob-ed ladies out there... Where do you buy your sports bras?!?! I need replacements, STAT!
Unfortunately I have to share with you guys that I had to take my new #berlei sports bra back!! Which is so unfortunate, the edges of the straps (where they fold over) are quite sharp and have cut into my back 😫 such a shame because other then that it was one of the most comfortable and supportive bras I'd ever owned. I can't say with honesty that they aren't all like that because they didn't have any more in stock that were my size 😔
This is intense for me....
for the past 4 years I have really..REALLY struggled to be comfortable in my body and while I didnt show it on the outside..i was sure feeling it on the inside. Ive always been the funny one, always cracking jokes and making light of situations but my weight was never one of those times.
Now looking at the picture i took today compared to the picture of me in Janurary...I cant believe that i ACTUALLY did something good for myself. My arms, legs, chest, stomach, face, etc..all things i wanted to change for so long have been changed in what seems to be a blink of an eye. And it was all me. Busting my ass at the gym 5 times a week, eating better, learning and changing. •
No, its not just physical changes that comes with this lifestyle..its mentally the best thing that has ever happened to me. Learning what foods are good for my body, controlling my alcohol intake and just all around being a better me. You know, I deserve this. I deserve to be the best me..and im seeing myself grow in that way every day. More than 20 pounds down. More than 15inches gone. And i am thick. I am happy. I am healthy. I am me. •
