My Exercise Progress ♡

I’m the world’s least athletic person.

I always remember P.E. class in school being such a struggle. I was always so bad compared to everyone else even though I’m not overweight or anything.

Running was always the hardest for me. I always felt so awful when running like I just couldn’t breathe and could throw up any second.

To pass the running exam, girls had to run 1 mile/1.6km  in 10 minutes.

Now that’s not a very high standard. But I’d be jumping for joy if I passed that. And I did maybe.. once!

 

So ever since graduating from high school, I never took up exercising again. I just thought it wasn’t for me.

 

Well, I recently took it up again (for the silliest reason ever which was to lose baby fat on my face).

I started running 3-4 times a week.

 

It was so hard at first. I only ran 10 minutes at a time.

But I’ve been getting better and better and now I’m running 15 minutes each time.

I never thought it was possible for me to run 15 minutes!

I’m still incredibly slow, but I’m making progress so I’m super duper happy.

 

So what’s changed?

Growing up, I was chronically dehydrated. I don’t know why, but I just didn’t seem to compute I needed to drink so much water.

In my teens, I started to develop massive headaches and even went to the doctors to check it out. But even they didn’t recommend to drink more water!

I still get these headaches now. If I don’t drink water within 1-2 hours of waking up, I’ll start to have really bad headaches that ruin the rest of the day.

I don’t remember how it came to be, but I just realized one day that I needed to drink so much more water.

I’ve noticed so many changes in my body after that.

My skin was so much smoother and radiant and I just felt so good!

I can’t believe I was depriving my body something so important for such a long time!

And since I started exercising, it’s become so much easier than I remember!

Now, every day I’m careful to drink at least the minimum amount required, 2.2L for a woman! :raburabu:

 

I wasn’t aiming to lose weight as I feel I’m pretty skinny already. But I’ve been losing weight all over my body – my legs, arms, butt (shut up!), belly, face.. EVERYWHERE!

I’ve been so happy to see the progress. :heart:

I just wish I had before and after pictures!

 

How do you girls like to exercise?

Do you have a routine?

Be sure you all drink enough water! :raburabu:

 

P.S. – A picture of me and my pink hedge hog Mr. Smittens! :raburabu:
