Every time I leave the house, someone always finds the need to compliment my body shape. To some it is nice to look at, but for me? It's not. Over the past 3 years I have had a love hate relationship with my body. When I lost weight I liked it, when I gained, not so much. Don't get me wrong I do like the odd compliment, however what I don't like is what I look like stripped down.


My legs giggle all the time! I can run down the stairs and everyone can hear my thighs clap together as if an impromptu applause was given. It's frustrating because I caused it on myself. I did this to myself. All the times I went to the chip shop, all the times I ate pizza and biscuits and thought it was okay. The thing that bothers me the most is when someone takes a picture of me and I all I see is the roundest of faces, a double decker chin and massive arms. 


It's always easier said then done. People always say to join the gym or join a fitness class. I used to attend a gym, however it just felt boring and repetitive. It also didn't  help listening to the same songs in my playlist over and over again. One of the biggest reasons as to why I quit the gym, was because I was impatient and didn't see results. It's frustrating doing all the work and still feeling and looking the same afterwards.


However, I have officially come to the conclusion that I am going to take things slow and ween myself back into fitness. I'm not going to rush back to the gym because I will go back into the old way of thinking. So, I am going to exercise at home. There's no place like home. There are videos that I have seen on YouTube and Instagram, and I am going to challenge myself to at least do one video every day. 


We'll see how it goes...
