I won't even lie- I WANT this to be me. But it's never gonna happen. See, I do a good job (usually) about eating well and getting exercise. I am really proud of myself for the effort I have made over the past year and a half. But the deal is... I hate working out. Like really, really hate it. And all those stories about how eventually you get into it and you get a great high from it. Nope, not me. Never ever. I put myself on a jogging program for three months- never built up any stamina. I lift weights and try to increase them slowly- almost kills me (as in, really, because I can't hold them up and the machines come crashing down). No matter how many crunches I do, they never get easier.
Verdict= I am negatively athletic. It's true. I can do things exactly right in perfect form and get no results. Examples: basketball (even though I'm 5'9), softball, football, running, volleyball, rollerskating, hiking, cheer leading... you name it and I will suck at it. it doesn't matter what I do and how I try, I never get better.
So I have concluded that I will need to satisfy myself with being a size 8/10, almost 30, 5'9 woman (even though Katie is a 5'10 size 4). This is who I am. Be healthy, keep up the exercise, and enjoy life.
As a side note, can we talk about how much Katie's and my dog resemble their owners as it relates tobuild and body mass:
Katie & June Bug
Tall, regal, 0% body fat, highly athletic, ridiculously long, lanky legs, when they walk in- people NOTICE.
Ashley & Van Geaux
Decent height, OK build, a bit of extra around the middle, but adorable with good hair and extremely cuddly. No athletic ability whatsoever.
