Thursday, April 29, 2004DISPOSING ADIPOSE
I don't know how many times I've been asked if I'm a swimmer or a tennis player. I guess I have or used to have an athletic built. Blame it on my broad shoulders, i suppose. Thing is, I've never been a sporty kind of gal but I do know how to play basic volleyball, basketball, bowling, billiards, badminton, ping pong and I think I'm pretty good at swimming and I can run pretty fast. I just never really got hooked on any sport. I used to take Taebo classes but i stopped after a couple of months. What I'm trying to say is, I don't really excercise. Never really found the need to as I never considered myself fat. Mama always said that I am big boned (and I really am) but no one ever called me fat or chubby. And friends were always telling me how envious they were of my small waist.
Well, not anymoorreeeee.
"Ang sarap mo kumain" and "Buti ka pa hindi ka tumataba" is what some of my friends used to say. I miss my old metabolism. It slowed down about 4 years ago. And even then, I still didn't think I was fat. But now, I feel really icky. It's bad enough that I have hippo hips and a large ass to boot but my tummy is making waves, if you know what i mean. They're not really large ones but helloooo, adipose tissue is adipose tissue. And I wanna get rid of it, dammit!
So for the first time last night, i worked out. I went to the gym with my hunny and he taught me stretching excercises and instructed me on what equipment to start with, how to use them and how many reps (call me a bimbo but i never really knew what "reps" meant until last night. Honest.) and sets i should do. I even came to a point where I was already complaining because the dumbells were so heavy and i said something like, "I just want to be toned, I don't want to look like Vina Morales!" Har har.
After about 45 minutes of working out, i changed into my bikini and did a few laps in the pool (i suggest you gym buffs do this, it feels hella good).
I took a strong pain reliever before going to sleep as I was sure I would be limping in pain from the excercise that my body was sooo not used to.
Today, I have to wince in pain everytime I raise my arms. On the good side, I was actually expecting the pain to be much worse.
I'm going back to the gym tonight. I need to do this for myself. So as of now, my body is a work in progress. Hehe. By the way, if you're reading this huns, thanks for being my very own personal trainer. Hehe!
Yes Charo, we can no
longer have Crispy Pata. Ahuhuhu!
