Dude, I’m An Athlete

Thanks for the kind comments on the last entry. I’m not usually one for talking about my personal life, but I happened to be at the keyboard during a fit of paranoia, so you guys got to read all about it. Ha ha!

I remembered something from my Missing Entry. I wanted to tell you all about a bloody brilliant woman named Julia. She emailled me after my Flying Boobies entry and offered to send me a bunch of sports gear as she works in sports promotion and had some spares. So imagine the excitment at Chez Dietgirl when we received a box from Italy, full of sporty tshirts and bras and the like. What didn’t fit me fit my sister, so we have saved a pile of money thanks to the generosity of a stranger! Thanks so much Julia.

My favourite bit was a purple Nike crop top. It’s not supportive enough for cardio, but it’s perfect for Body Pump. I was so excited to fit into a size L Nike top that I had a tiny cry when I put it on. I am no brand-name freak, but to fit into something that wasn’t a plus size was such a shock and so goddamn exciting after all these years, I couldn’t help getting emotional! There is no way I could ever wear the top as it is intended (ie. on its own) due to my wobbly bits, but I like having this little secret under my t-shirt, it makes me smile as I squat and lunge. I even found some Nike gym pants (size XL) at a discount outlet and you wouldn’t believe how my motivation at the gym has been boosted now that my shape isn’t hidden by tracksuit pants three sizes too big! Woo!

  1. I can’t wait to fit into non plus sized workout wear. I harbor lust in my heart for cute, coordinated Nike goddess wear. LOL!

  2. I think cute workout gear is essential – it helps to energize me for a workout. I don’t workout at a gym, but I still put it on at home. That was very nice of Janice to send that stuff over! 🙂

  3. how much fun it must feel so great.
    I have about 10 kg until Im your size but when Im in my tights at the gym I can look in the mirror and see that my legs dont look so bad anymore and are getting a good shape. You know with muscles on the back and my belly is alot smaller. This can be really good sometime in the future

  4. I think the wardrobes of the yoga instructors are the ones I envy most. My outfits aren’t nearly as chic, since I value functionality over style more than anything! Ah, well.

  5. OH MY GOD!

    I just looked at your current weight.

    OH MY GOD!

    I’m so proud of you.

    But oh so bloody jealous.
