Last month I went to a health session in Spain because they offered it to me for free and I am really interested in those things. During the session I was told that I had overweight. I was so shocked and sad, because I was doing the Blogilates program and I was eating clean and then they said that to me.
I’m not ashamed of talking about that because I’ve always been a big girl! I was really fat in high school but back then I didn’t care. Then I went to Honduras, which is a country where everyone looks much more to how people look. As I was adapting to the culture, I started hitting the gym over there and found myself training really hard in combination with eating not that much. There they always eat ‘frijoles’ (beans) and I wouldn’t put this on the top of the list of my favorite food. To make a long story short, I really started to take care of myself and lost about 10 kilos in that year (+ I felt great!).
After that I kept on training in the gym in Belgium for a year and after that year I was the thinnest I’ve ever been since I started growing up. As a kid I was really tall and skinny and I have been 1.70m tall since I was 11, so after that it was just my weight that was growing (really sad!). Also when I was a kid I really had troubles with eating and I remember that I found myself on the table during the weekend till 3 o’clock sometimes because I couldn’t leave the table until I ate everything. I was really picky on everything I ate! At the age of 11 I started liking much more food, so I started eating way more and that was my biggest issue and that made it all go wrong.
This year I have been living in the French part of Belgium and after that in Spain so I had to cook for myself and since I often didn’t have too much time for that, I didn’t eat that healthy. In Spain it was the same thing but after 1 month I decided to start eating clean! You can see that on my Instagram profile if you follow me!
All I just wrote here were just details, but the point now is that yesterday I subscribed myself in the gym for 3 months and today I had to do a condition test. The test consisted of me sitting on a bike and going on until I couldn’t handle it anymore. Every couple of minutes they raised the wattage and in the end the test showed that I went on until 199 watt.
Not bad for an overweight girl right?! 😉
The trainer also told me that I was the 6th or 7th fittest girl in the gym! I was like YAAAAAAY! Things like that can really make my day!
