Hey there, Internet!
* Batfit is a ‘challenge group’ by our dear Professor Z where all kind of (darkly inclined) people try to motivate each other to get healthier or change / do whatever in their lives to feel better
I have no idea why I still am trying to plan my workout and diet when my body currently tries to make fun of me with pain attacks and allergies / food intolerances. In January my goal was to get back to a weight under 70kgs within 2016 (which by then would have been -5kgs) and in the end get back to the 61-65kgs that I felt good with a few years ago but thanks to the things mentioned above and my medication I even managed to gain some weight. So this currently is not what I should focus on. Also shared a picture of my stomach in that post that I wanted back…
Do not get me wrong, I actually still would love to get that stomach back but I understand that currently this will take longer, if it is possible at all. I will not be able to do the workout the way I wanted. (which was every second day warmup, 50 minutes workout, streches and then 30 minutes dancing) But during June I slowly tried what my body would accept, it seems 2 days workout, followed by a rest day is ok. Workout currently consists of 10 minutes for my arms, 5 minutes for stomach. This is not a lot but it is something. I am hoping to expand to 10 minutes each for arms, stomach and booty until December and then, hopefully with new therapy / medication add a bit more. But yes, there is some progress visible on my arms and stomach already but not enough that I would feel good sharing yet.
Learned a lot about food. My doctor suspects (or is sure about this but I have to wait for the specialist appointment in December) that the pain attacks are from some kind of rheumatism so there was a lot of research and testing for what food will make the pain in my joints worse and which are ok. Thank you, dear body, another thing that I now have to think about when planning my diet, shopping for food or eating outside.
What I managed to do is to feel better, emotionally. I had another bad phase when the pain attacks got worse and didn’t stop but no demon is going to keep my down for long! Prove? I only missed one day of work even though I sometimes was crying when moving or even sitting still. Hoping this will not make the doctors believe I only am pretending to be in pain?! Did not go out too much but did a lot of jewelry and painting, being creative. Getting back into my plans for body modifications as well so I re-started my jar to save for my ear pointings by Samppa von Cyborg. We’ll see when this will happen!
Who else is with our Professor and the Batfit group or do you have some other way of motivation for making yourself feel better (in whatever way)? Have a nice evening!
