Getting back my ballerina arms

I used to have ballerina arms. That was because I used dance. I wasn’t technically a ballerina because I was never formally trained; but I did informally self-train and one of the benefits was that I developed ballerina arms and ballerina legs. Over the last several years though, stress has taken a toll on my physical appearance. I always find it annoying when I’m reading the message boards trying to get information to update the celebrity sites I run and people start marveling at how quickly pregnant celebrities lose their pregnancy weight. To me it seems so obvious why celebrities loose the weight more quickly than other women. I know from firsthand experience that when there’s a heightened concern about your appearance, it’s easier to control your diet and exercise to make sure you’re maintaining that appearance.

There was a time in my life when you would never be able to pinch an inch of fat on me; and it wasn’t because I was special or lucky. It was because I was so paranoid about having a even an inch of fat of my body that I would work out 7 days per week for 2 – 4 hours and consume only a few hundred calories per day.

Celebrities are more paranoid about losing their pregnancy weight in the fewest possible weeks than regular women because they know eyes are watching and people are counting. When you know eyes are watching and people are counting and talking and you have a reputation for being skinny you triple the efforts at the gym and starve yourself if you have to. There’s really no mystery there.

I’ve gained a lot of weight over the last few years and I’ve recently decided that it’s not okay for me not to care any more how I look. I haven’t been caring so I haven’t been working out like I used to or trying to eat right. Hell, some days I’ve been scarfing down 4 slizes of pizza. It’s ridiculous. Once upon a time I wouldn’t eat a single slize of pizza.

Now, I’m not saying I want to be as extreme as I used to be where I would literally starve myself to maintain a size 1, but I certainly don’t want to keep up with the self-destructive pattern of eating under the influence of stress and not getting any exercise because it’s not good for my mental health in more ways than one, and I imagine one of the key elements needed in order to achieve wealth when coming in with so many disadvantages is a clear head.

So I’m going to be getting up from here and going to do some arm, back and leg exercises. I’ve been doing them for a few weeks and I am already seeing signs of the shape I used to have.
