More Muscles, More Cravings

Winter has arrived, which means things are a little bit lazy in the fitness department. It depends on the type of person you are. Some people can go to the gym during the winter with no problem at all. But there are people like me who do get affected by winter, making it difficult to have the slight thought on going to the gym. But I'm grateful for has happened recently with my body.

With healthy eating and a good workout regime, I've gained 22 pounds in the past two months. I'm ten pounds larger than I've ever been in my life. This was quite the shocker, for I had doubts that my short stature of 5'3 would ever reach. Normally, a short person would reach a particular goal in weight and just remain there for the rest of their life. I'm still gaining weight. So maybe my body hasn't reach that statistical limit.

Still, I've accomplished two goals when it comes to fitness: gaining weight and cutting it through work out regimes. Using the services of Alkaline Guru and Eden on Earth has been a blessing. But like all goals, in comes a new challenge.

My challenge is my endless cravings for more food. The reason for it being a challenge is because I'm not a heavy eater. I drink more than I eat. I remember finding it difficult consuming well balanced meat in my mouth, trying to reach the goal of 5,000 calories a day. Don't get me wrong. I'm a huge foodie. I love eating food. But it's kind of a different story when you realize that instead of eating out of moderation, you're eating like it's a chore.

I'm slowly adapting to eating more than I used to. All I know that this is my current challenge, which I am more than willing to concur.
