The fact you said you want to take up exercise so you don’t fall overweight is a massive indicator that your eating disorder is talking.
Why would you become overweight? That would take a long time and I’m sure you would notice.
You need to exercise is you have the mentality of improving your fitness levels, because if your coming from a place of having to weight restore and you are wanting to exercise to lose weight it’s just going to end really badly for you!
Thank you, I’m glad you enjoy what I’m doing here! X
Yes, I hate cardio but I always did it to improve my heart strength and cardiovascular system as it was so weak.
I would do short bursts of intervals to build my heart strength. Doing cardio for longer than 30 minutes can apparently cause muscle wastage, I’m not sure whether I believe that as on some days I do 1 hour (1 every other week) but during my normal workouts I do 10-20 minutes and have always done so.
I don’t know, it’s always been in the back of my mind as I love a challenge
And love the physique of the bikini girls, it’s beyond beautiful. It just takes a hella lot of time which most of the time I don’t have.
I’m upping my training through to see what I can push myself too, but no plans to compete for a very long time!
Someone obsessed with my arse?
3-5x. I answer this like a billion times I week, I’m sure!
Booty booty booty booty, rockin’ everywhere….
My chosen area of design is actually fashion. But I went I to graphics after I decided I wanted a more diverse portfolio and really wanted to learn how to use a computer in a artistic way. I’ve always been creative and whilst I exceeded in both academic and creative subjects, I felt like my personality better suited creativity after not doing so well in my a-level business studies and not enjoying it at all!
I needed something that made me happy and didn’t seem like a task because I was very ill with my eating disorder at the time when I could chose what to study after school. And I’m so happy that I listened to myself rather than my family, as I’m so happy with what I do and it’s never going to feel like work.
I think the most important thing is talent, you can be taught only so much but of you don’t have the talent for that area then you are going to struggle. In quite lucky in that I have lots of skills that I find easily transferable, and because of that I e succeeded on many areas, but not everyone is like this. For example, my brother can do amazing graphic design, but he can’t draw free hand to save his life. And a lot of girls in my fashion group were hopeless with any computer type design work.
So make sure you chose the right area for you, it may not be graphics, but it could be something else creative. Do you know what I mean?
A creative mind is key aswell, some people in my teaching group struggle with grades and innovative ideas as they simply have a structured and corporate way of thinking. The best minds are the insane minds, and that’s why there are so many quirky and individual artists out there, it’s not a front, it’s the way their mind words, their mind is fun!!
You need dedication aswell, I know I said above I wanted something easier, but in the sense of something that wasn’t forced. I put in insane hours, everyone does and you have to be prepared to do that! Without the dedication you simply won’t succeed, design is a hard business, and it’s not always paid. And you just gota grit your teeth. Especially with graphics, as clients are going to be dictating to you for the rest of your life, and not everyone understands design so it can’t be extremely frustrating at times.
That’s because I don’t post it.
I’ve posted favourite exercises and I will mention what I did on a certain day.
But I don’t have a workout plan, I change it every week so my body is constantly challenged, I don’t have a set weight, I’m always striving for heavier.
If you have a plan you are stuck in a routine, and that’s when you aren’t going to see changes.
I think a unrealistic expectation would be a bmi of 13 and claiming I’m recovered.
Where as I’m a bmi of 20. My natural bmi is 18 so I have more than exceeded my natural weight!
I just want people to be happy and healthy and fit and full of life,
And the idea that I’m giving off a false impression is horrible!
