All this talk about #BuffBuddies is actually really helpful in making me WANT to go to the gym. The problem is that I'm flat broke and since I'm no longer at college, I now have to pay for that privilege.
I figured I could at least do something at home, so I started "doing yoga", which is just a fancy way of saying I found this neat 20 minute Youtube video for beginners and was only 5 minutes in when I realized just how much I need to build the muscles in my arms. Stretching your arms shouldn't make your sore.
To be fair, I am on the Almost Healed end of a bad arm injury, so I'm not too surprised or upset that I can't hold the table top pose for more than 3 minutes. Being made painfully aware of how out of shape I am is a welcome kick in the butt to exercise and build my strength.
The plan right now is to just keep doing the 5 minutes of yoga that I can get through and depending on how my arms feel, maybe adding a couple minutes. Who knows, maybe next week I'll be up to 8 minutes? (I'm only being a little sarcastic because while funny, I really hope that I'm not still stuck at 5 minutes next week)
Some people have also been talking about their food intake - I'm not going to do that. I'm poor and I don't have the will to figure out a weekly meal plan like I used to. Although I am going to drink more water. I always say that and it never happens. I don't like the taste of water so it's a constant struggle to choose that over something else, like soda or chocolate milk. Both of which are absolutely not good for you in the quantities that I drink them.
The goal right now is 1 bottle of water a day.
I just read what I wrote and I have not been taking good care of my meat suit.
