carrying the lost weight.

Monday, July 01, 2013

Today I went to a sports store and bought a new pair of dumbbells. I didn't wanted to do it at first since I'm only gonna be in this country for two months, but I quickly realized that I want to keep exercising and not disappoint my gym trainer when I come back home, so today I got my paycheck and went to said sports store. (I used to buy ice cream or chocolates on the day I got paycheck as a reward, and now I'm in the sports store, what is happening? :D)

So I ended up with a set of 2,5kg dumbbells and had to carry home a box worth 5kg (around 11lbs). And boy was it hard, halfway home I felt like my back is gonna give out on me (I had to walk about 4 kilometers), and my arms were hurting, I was sweating and by the time I could see my house I felt like crying. And then I realized it's only the half of my lost weight. I used to carry around twice as more on myself. No wonder I felt tired, no wonder I didn't want to walk long distances, no wonder my back and legs hurt. By the time I was home (after 4 flights of stairs) I just wanted to climb into my bed and breathe for a while. I think this was the first time it actually hit me how much losing 10kg can change for my body.

And I still have four unwanted packs of those 5kg dumbbells on me to lose. I can't imagine how my legs and back can do this... Is this isn't motivating, I don't know what is. :D

    That is very interesting. Would be a good learning experience for people to realize how much weight is affecting the rest of their body.....
mainly joints and energy level.
