The goofy smile and thumbs up is for the people who comment about the “serious muscle pics” lol
I can’t seem to get out of shape. Not that I am really TRYING to get out of shape but due to work and the rollerblading injury, I have hardly worked out at all in the last 3 weeks. I have only done about 2 sessions of light bodyweight exercise (crawling and jumping jacks mostly) and a walk here or there. As you can see from the picture above, I haven’t really gotten out of shape at all.
Am I posting this to brag? Not at all. I am posting this because even I am surprised that i have not regressed further. As someone who used to be VERY OUT of shape, it just amazes me at how easy it truly is to stay IN shape.
Once you get to a point where your body is pretty fit and lean, I think that becomes your bodies natural state of homeostasis. I have noticed a couple things over the past couple weeks.
#1 I eat less. My body naturally craves less food than when I am more active. I think this is part of the reason I have stayed in pretty good shape. I am not forcing myself to eat less, I have just noticed it happening.
#2 I desire more natural exercise. Everyone knows that I have been moving more and more towards natural movement training but know that I can barely exercise, I find that when I do exercise, I just want wanna have fun (Cyndi Lauper anyone?… anyone?… no?…. ok). This means running around and jumping and crawling. I barely have a desire to pick up a barbell at all right now.
Just some thoughts and observations. I cant wait until my tailbone is all healed and I can get back to doing some squat jumps and box jumps.
Have a beautiful day!
