body issues

I may not really show it, but I think sometimes I have body issues. I wouldn't be busting my butt off every now and then if I didn't. "I love running" isn't quite motivation enough to throw my trainers on and hit the road sometimes. heh.

So yesterday when I went running at the lake, one of the regulars there said to me "Wah you put on weight ar?". Darn. I absolutely abhor that comment. It's the bane of me. Because I feel like I wear the tag Sport Science all the time and I should, at the very least, look the part. I feel people like me shouldn't gain weight, simply because we know how not to.

But I guess doctors fall sick too.

Anyway. I have been putting on weight. But not fat. Muscle. And I say this with absolute confidence.

My shoulders and arms have a heavier tone in the past month or so. Probably due to push ups and burpees. It's funny though, because I don't do heaps of them. Neither do I lift weights. I guess I'm just a typical mesomorph.

But any layman (from Malaysia) who sees me will say "Wah you put on weight ar?" because when I'm donning my sleeveless running tanks I think look like a boy with boobs and a ponytail. heh.

guess u fit well in NZ with your new body frame then coz the pple there tend to be at a "bigger size" compare to asian. as for me, though i've been running for the past 2 years, my weight is still the same !!! :(
