enjoying the sweat

It's been about 4 weeks since I've started working out again. I think I joined Planet Fitness about 3 weeks ago. No change in weight. I don't think I look any different and my clothes still feel like they fit the same. I'm totally fine with that. I know that I didn't gain the weight overnight and that it won't disappear overnight. (I think I am going to try to take a picture of myself every 4 weeks to track my progress. Probably weight myself that often too.)

I'm really enjoying my gym membership. I do AT LEAST an hour of cardio, sometimes more. I like to do at least two of the following: ARC Trainer, elliptical, treadmill or bicycle. I try not to do the ARC Trainer on the days I muscle train my legs. It ends up being torture when I get home (3 flights of stairs).

I'd like to do more free weights. Bench press and what not, but I'm a little scared to do those things by myself. I'd hate to drop the bar on myself and not have someone there to pull it off of me. I might have to convince one of my friends to start working out with me or something.

I don't think my eating habits have changed too much. I am eating more salads though and shopping at Whole Foods more. It gets expensive. Also, I'm addicted to Whole Foods pizza. I've stopped in twice in less than a week so far for lunch just for a slice of pizza. And they always give me the biggest available slice. I don't know why it's so good, but it is. 

Also, this happened today. I've been thinking about cutting bangs for a month or so. I was getting ready to take a shower and just went for it. I'm still on the fence. I did leave them long enough so that I can still pin them back. They hide my unkempt eyebrows nicely.

I had something else I wanted to mention, but I already forgot what it was. It happens.

I want to go to London. Random.

I guess that's all for this post. Come back, Friday I'll be sharing my wishes for summer.

Yay for working out! I'm obsessed with doing weights, hence my lack of weight loss, because I'm just gaining hella muscle. Just a tip, when you run, try alternating super high intensity with a short burst of comfortable pace over and over. The high intensity, followed by short rest period jump starts your weight loss! Andddddd everyone tells me weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise... which sucks because I love to eat. meh.
