Time to step it up
So went to Coachella this past weekend and I had a blast. It was over 100 degrees and very hot with little breeze. But as the temperatures soared and I saw guys and girls take off their tops whether to show off bikinis or get sprayed by water I realized how much my weight is holding me back.
By the end of my first day I was suffering from blisters on both feet, which can happen to many people regardless of weight (everyone in our group got some). But being the chubster with flabby thighs that I have, I had such bad thigh chaffing from all the walking and dancing. I also suffer from back problems from a car accident I got into a while back but I am sure the extra weight I carry does not help.
I was lucky to go and the music was incredible and I had a great time but as I saw girls being lifted up on peoples shoulders for concerts and my significant other offered but I refused cause I weigh more then him, I did feel somewhat jealous. I wonder if I weighed less I would have necessarily had a better time. Maybe or maybe not but I definitely would have worn cuter clothes. I had to sacrifice cuteness for style because I spent so much time trying to hide parts of my bodythat make me self conscious while trying to remain comfortable. I was as comfortable as I could have been given the wardrobe I had but I felt like I looked like I just cleaned out a dusty attic in my pajamas instead of attending a music festival.
I have not been active on here for awhile mainly because my computer got so slow I can basically only use it for printing something if I have like 2 hours…so it is broken essentially. But I want to get inspired and be more mindful of the positive choices I can make everyday in terms of food and activity.
