A Positive Vent? Hehe!

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Okay, time to vent. I know this is something little but it still bothers me.

A guy that weighs in the 350s/400s I know at college told me I should go work out when I mentioned I have not worked out. Seriously?! You are telling ME? Seriously?!

Okay, I know I am no model but seriously I have lost nearly 50# and dang proud. You cannot exactly do that overnight. It has taken 9 months of hard work and dedication..of repeatly telling myself NO, NO, NO...than this guy comes along and tells me I need to work out.

Mind you, another guy, who is THIN and FIT that rock climbs and has started running again, told me last night I could have candy than go workout. Like how he said it, he wasn't telling me to like I need to but because I was worried about the calorie intake.

Putting that aside, the first guy, the one telling me to go workout, acts like he knows everything about food when he doesn't. As we all know we are constantly learning.. but the stuff he's saying is wrong..but I don't correct him. Let him believe what he whats. Than, today he is telling me there is a way to life for endurance and strength - I KNOW THIS. In fact, most the time I really like showing off how much I know about health and surprising people, lol. Also, I know I could waste him at any amount of time on the elliptical or any run.. grr.. hear me roar, lol!

Times like this, I just want to be like "screw you" (please mind the language) and work out. Not because he told me too but because it means I will be one more pound less, a clearer mind, be able to sleep more soundly, closer to my goal weight and wearing looser clothing.

One day I will NOT be the fat girl people tell to work out or I should eat less. But I WILL be the girl that everyone wants to work out with and asks how she did it. Oh wait, I am ready that girl! And, it feels amazing!!! Seriously!

I started this for ME, and I will end it for ME! One of the reasons I want to lose a total of 100# is because I CAN...and to prove to myself I can, hehe! Half way there!

Maybe this is just what I needed.. my friend and I talked about me doing the Cold Fusion Challenge again. This time it sounds like I would have more support than I did in the last challenge and someone to keep me on track. I really, truly believe I CAN win this challenge if I focus on the task at hand..meaning what I did this summer when I started. It's simple.

Cardio - 40-60 minutes
Strength train 3x week
Drink plenty of water
Eat within my range
...and have FUN!

If nothing else, I have learned I can do it with I stick with these things. Sure, there will be bumps in the roads but I CAN and WILL do it.

    Well, he just got done working out and was actually waiting for his ramen to be ready. I don't know.. I just could not believe he was telling me to work out. Like it is none of his business, especially since I have lost 46+ lbs.

    Well if something like that happens again you could always respond with "Why don't you join me so that I don't get lost along the way." It could be your way of promoting healthy living to others.

    I know.. I have had people tell me to work out.. but it was the way he said? If that makes sense.. maybe I was taking it too personal.. I don't know. I guess I am kinda coming to terms that no matter my size people will comment on my size. I know people that are tiny are told that they need to gain weight. It is probably people projecting their own feelings on other people...

    I don't know exactly what happened but maybe the big guy trying to motivate you to workout since you had already said you hadn't worked out yet?

    I mean if you told me that you had skipped a workout and needed to workout my response would be "Well then get your butt to the gym". It wouldn't be a dig, it would just be a push to something you already want to do.

    Yeah, I don't know. I didn't know to deal with this person.. like I couldn't believe it.. but in the end, it doesn't matter. I will still do what I do.. and excel at it! :)

    I just love it when a know it all comes up to me. Especially when my husband is with me. Because he does know almost all of it! He was a professional body builder! He has been at this health thing for over 20 years. I can ask him anything, and he knows. I don't understand a lot of what he means, so we look it up on-line, and that usually makes more sense to me. He helps me so much. I love being able to defend my way of thinking to anyone. Some people just want everyone to fail, so that they don't have to change.
