Rest day, inner thoughts

Monday, August 10, 2020

So today is a rest day for me, after working out at the gym for the last 3 days and not being used to it my legs are sore. they're not throbbing hurting but they are sore like I can tell that they're sore but I'm still able to move around and walk and bend over and everything. But I was sitting here thinking during my break at work that i have to work around my stomach. Like my current weight is 257.7 lb and although my stomach really doesn't look that huge I still have to work around it. and I was thinking that one thing I am looking forward to most is being able to put my socks and shoes on without having to work around my stomach to get to my feet. and be able to cut my toenails without having to work around my stomach just to bend over to reach my toes in a seated position. it never really crossed my mind that my stomach would be an issue. But I have noticed in these last three years that I've gained all this weight that it's even difficult for me to sit in a booth at a restaurant and I cannot even bend forward enough to actually eat over my plate so I have to be real careful about how I eat or everything I eat will fall into my shirt. we went to the Mexican restaurant on Wednesday of last week and sat in a booth and I had to have my husband push the table as close to him as he was comfortable with and even still that wasn't even enough room because I couldn't even eat over my plate like a normal human being. It really doesn't help that I'm 4 foot 10 and I'm short and the table is right at my chest so I have my chest in the way of me being able to bend over and eat over a plate like a normal person. so in closing I'm actually looking forward to getting rid of this belly that's what I'm going to try to concentrate on the most because I want to be able to bend over without working around my stomach. I want to be able to eat over my plate at a restaurant while sitting in a booth without my chest and my stomach being the issue as to why I look ridiculous trying to eat without eating over my plate like other people. it is kind of discouraging though being in the position to where your body reject you and you have to work around it because you are the one that caused yourself to have to work around your body. So ready to get back to the gym even though I've only gone three times I'm ready to go back rest days I'll probably not going to be my friend.
