It's no secret -- I am entirely unathletic. Made of tiny little wrists and next-to-no-muscle-mass and lungs that are ready to give out at any given moment, the idea of working out has never exactly appealed to me. I mean, seriously, I get out of breath just THINKING about having to walk across campus. And let's not even talk about how much I felt like dying after walking up the steps to Prague Castle. Take my word for it, I have spent most of my life so out of shape that it was actually pretty laughable.
Which, of course, has sparked this never-ending cycle of not wanting to work out because I was so out of shape, and being out of shape because I didn't want to work out. I've been trying over the last couple of months to be better about that, and I think to some extent it's been working pretty well.
The big question is going to be whether I can keep up this good behavior when I get back to school, or whether the lure of D-Hall fried chicken and being "too busy" (watching Netflix) to go to the gym will win out.
I've always had an odd relationship with working out, a combination of disliking how out of shape I was and feeling so helpless and overwhelmed (and, okay, I admit, lazy) to even know where to start to make it better.
Ohwell, here's hoping I can keep it up in the coming months. If not, you have my permission to hit me.
"Round is a shape, right?"
