Supersize to Superhero

Ask me anything   About Me   Dealing with POTS   My Stats and Goals   My Workouts and Diet   My Face   My Cosplay   My Progress   

25 yo, female, nerd, USA
I realized I can't be a superhero if I get winded after running a block.
I can't run with the Doctor if my legs aren't strong enough.
I can't defeat the Witch King if I can't lift a broad sword.
And unless I could fight back, I'd be one of those people who die in the first 90 seconds of an episode of Supernatural.
I'm getting healthy and fit so that when the time comes, I can save the world.

Why do I always get the worst body image days right before a con?

And why do I always choose to cosplay sexy characters who flaunt all my problem features?

Chocolate Chia Pudding Sweetened With Dates

 ”I love this stuff. It only requires a few ingredients and it satisfies all those creamy chocolate cravings in a healthy way sweetened only with dates. This pudding reminds me of chocolate cake batter – creamy, chocolaty, with a hint of vanilla. Not only is it tasty, but it’s packed with over 10 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein per serving, as well as loads of iron, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Now we’re talking!”

Recipe here.

I’m definitely starting to feel more confident with yoga. My flexibility is getting amazing - I can now hold my heels in a seated forward bend and my knuckles brush the floor on a standing straight legged bend. Before this year I had trouble even touching my toes and surgery and recovery left my right leg incredibly tense and stiff, so I consider this a huge victory. My balance is improving too, but still needs work. My right leg is particular is still bad, which is because of my bone fracture and muscle loss.

We did a lot of warrior poses tonight and they felt strong. This was one of the first times when I felt really determined and focused with yoga. I had this moment of like laser clarity where everything lined up in Warrior II and felt invincible and it was mildly magical and yes, I’m fully aware of how dumb that sounds.

My biggest challenge is still just relaxing. I’m a naturally tense, neurotic person so letting my mind and muscles go is hard. And in a similar vein, my instructor did actually say, “be a tree, be a tree,” and all I could think of was, “I’M A FUCKING SHRUB” and I nearly broke out laughing and feel over.
