So, I’ve been working out with my trainer for about 6 months now. Some times have been more dedicated than others – December was a particularly tough month to get all of my training in.
But I have been really consistent now for the past month and I am finally noticing real changes in both my fitness levels and my body. I still haven’t lost much weight, and I still have the weight around my waist that just seems to never move. But, my arms. My arms are noticeably different. I was showering this morning and when I washed my arms, they were hard. They weren’t mushy. They didn’t flop the way they used to. And when I was sitting on the toilet this morning looking down in my morning haze, I noticed a shape in my calf muscle that I’ve not seen on my own body in probably 15 years. It was round, and then cut in. It was shaped like a real calf, not just a fat lower leg that tapers off at the ankle.
The belly fat is the worst, and I am making some diet and cardio changes to work on it, but my body is starting to have a shape other than amoeba. And that is exciting.
