Where Does Your Fat Go When You Lose Weight? | IFLScience.

If there is one thing that I am actually doing a lot of these days, it is working out so one would assume fat burning goes with this right? Except, I have never stopped and asked myself where does the fat go or how is my body getting rid of it..

I’ve watched all the medical shows that there is on television, many showing the obese and the surgery/ complications that goes with having too much fat. I am always engrossed when they show liposuction or tummy tucks because of the sheer amount of fat that is generally removed-followed by being a little grossed out that there is also lumpy yellow fat inside my body.

Out of all the things I have heard on my fitness journey I have never really heard this theory about how fat is burned, the article is interesting just like IFL Science articles usually are, so take some time to see what happens to your fat when it is ‘burned’ off.

Iv’e been quiet in the blogging world for a little wile now mainly because I haven’t had much to say. The last few months have been busy and full of highs and lows. My police applications have been going along and I have ‘failed’ a couple, but there is always more to apply for. I say failed in quotations because I didn’t really fail, Iv’e gained invaluable experience which I can use when I re-apply.

I’m currently applying for Tasmanian Police and will hopefully have a physical date in the new year, If anyone is from Tasmania within the police force- some info would be great! On the plus side i’m running quicker and pushing heavier weights than ever! 6 months ago I would have laughed if I knew the weight that I can bench or squat now, but its just an ongoing process really and I can’t wait to see myself in  year..hopefully with an exciting new career.

This week and for many weeks I’ve been doing my usual routine, work, gym, sleep and repeat. I am pretty boring and I am happy to admit that, during the time off within that cycle I tend to watch movies, TV shows and listen to music, however the last few days I can’t get myself over the movie Jersey Boys directed by Clint Eastwood (Its pretty damn good ❤), I saw it a wile ago but can’t really forget about it…so much so I found myself doing hill sprints (in sand) to Sherry and many of the other great songs by The Four Seasons combined with some 80’s covers and hard rock… of course!

Aside from my boring life, I think lately I have been appreciating life a little more. I had an amazing friend who died a few years ago and he still reminds me to make sure that my life is full of the things that I want because nobody knows what will happen. So today I reflect on the things that I wish, want and appreciate:

Appreciate:

All the amazing people in my life that are supporting my journey into a new career. My partner, immediate family, friends and my trainer!

The animals that wont find a home this Christmas and to the ones who do; thank you to the wonderful people whom take the time to search the shelters instead of puppy farms. I like to visit the shelters to give the animals some love, they deserve attention too.

My food, I am a coeliac and now appreciate how gross food really is, why are there sooooo many additives and fillers to food..eew!! I appreciate my fresh vegetables, fruit and meat that come from local farmers. (trying to decrease my food footprint) #lookaftertheworldandsmallbusiness

Want

I want to eat scotch fingers again with chocolate on the bottom. (can’t there be a delicious gluten free version)

I want to buy Jersey Boys on DVD

I want the modern hospitality award to go and eat itself

Wish

I wish people all the best over the holidays and to be safe, drive carefully and donate something to those less fortunate, it doesn’t have to be much

I wish to meet the entertainers that star in my favorite productions. (and authors). For example Erich Bergen- THAT MAN IS TALENTED!!

I wish training would be a little easier, why can’t weights be easy? 😛

I wish everyone to have the happiest of holidays whether it be a sunny new years or a white Christmas.

UPDATE for today

So I’ve done my PT for today, and my goal was to improve my fartlek, which by the way..

I DID 🙂

ANNNND

I didn’t improve it by 5 minutes 

OR 

10 minutes

but by 20 minutes. 

I am impressed with myself if I do say so… BUT I don’t want to be one of those people who are like “I’ve just been to the gym *posts mirror selfies*” So I hope I’m not being that person, however I did take a photo of my treadmill with my end time and result. I know that I’m improving, and that makes me feel great but then I think “How will I ever beat that” and I know I will surprise myself but in the meantime I’m just pondering if I will ever do so. I still need to do a beep test to measure where I am really at, but I am satisfied at the moment because VICPOL has a recommendation of being able to complete 30-40 minutes of fartlek by the time application is submitted.

I’m kind of glad I’v booked the physio tomorrow, I know I am going to be sore and sorry for myself 😛 
This afternoon I also spent some time practicing some maths in the exams, with some learning required, but I seem to be okay once my memory is jogged. I still have a little ways to go, but I guess that’s like anything, it all comes with time… hows my patience going? I also have been through the computing test which was okay due to doing complex Microsoft work in my Advanced Diploma.

 Its all coming together nicely 🙂

 

Anyway have a good night everyone.
