I feel like sometimes I speak on this blog like I eat perfectly 100 percent of the time, which is definitely not true. Nobody can do that, except Kate Middleton. Case in point, today I was so nervous before my chem test that I couldn’t really eat. So I came back to Juan and Margo’s and downed:
4 bowls of Raisin Bran Crunch
Handful after handful of chocolate chips mixed with peanuts. (That’s like crack, fuh real).
So yeah, I’m not saying this because I feel all bad, I just realized that I probably should inform you I’m an actual human being. I’m not trying to be stick thin or be a fitness model and sometimes I just want to eat what I want to eat! And sometimes that happens to be copious amounts of random snack food late at night. MMMM. What is it about other people’s food???
I hate my butt.
I need to lose 30 pounds (none of them ever do).
My arms are so flabby.
GOD my thighs. They’re massive.
Ugh my stomach, just cover it up.
Judas. The dressing room just turns into this massive pit of negativity with everyone pointing out every single thing wrong with themselves. But you know what? I feel like I really learned something when I was laying in bed miserable for months and months.
I didn’t miss my good looking body. I wasn’t laying there wishing I could be cute again. I wanted a body that worked for me again! That could walk around a campus all day, exercise to lift my mood, go dancing with my friends, and just live a normal life! A healthy body is a beautiful thing!
So now, after listening to these girls day in and day out, I’ve realized that I really don’t care about “losing those last few pounds” or looking absolutely perfect. I’m insanely happy and my body can do what it needs to do again. I will never sacrifice my health just for cosmetic reasons, it isn’t worth it. I fuel my body with healthy food and exercise and every once and a while I fuel my soul with something purely yummy.
And even if you do need to get healthy, don’t do it because you hate your body! That is so unproductive. Get healthy because you love your body and want it to be around to work for you for a long time. Your body is your home, forever. Don’t you want to keep in nice?
So ladies, next time you’re thinking about skipping dinner or restricting yourselves to a crazy diet because of your “massive thighs”, think about all the incredible things your body can do and be grateful. Healthy and happy is perfect, or at least about as close as you can get 🙂
