I've been a struggling victim of bad genes and weight conscious issues since I hit puberty. I've never been "overweight" or obese per say.. But I have had issues on determining what exactly is considered healthy or what exactly my body image was to look like. In high school I was encouraged to be as thin as possible.. but I was a active, sports playing, well fed girl! There was just no way I was going to live up to others standards! It wasn't till recently that I ditched the persona I learned in high school on what I was supposed to be and embrace what I was! I was a thick moderately in shape woman with curves and that can be sexy too!
Also while in high school I made a conscious effort to cut out ALL sugary beverages and increase my intake of water. As a lifestyle choice that was made at such a early age i've noticed that it's not really a issue for me as a young adult. It wasn't made apparent to me till today on what exactly was consisted in these beverages.
And this is just with one coke a day! When I
noticed this I knew I wasn't bee-sing my cousin when I told her even one coke a day was bad for you! I know a lot of you are asking.. what is she getting with this blog post.. HAHA I know i'm right there with you! I guess what i'm really trying to say is.. For those of you feeling a bit discouraged with your weight or you just need just a place to start.. Maybe cutting out the sugar drinks and adding more water could be a start? I maintain a work out schedule of 5 days a week if not 6. I'm no where near a fitness model material.. but I can say.. the little things do count and just making ONE lifestyle change can help significantly! For further encouragement just bite the bullet and begin somewhere! And remember you don't have to live up to anyone else's expectations! Do what makes you healthy and happy and live life!
I'll have a junkesque post soon I just wanted to relay on my current infatuation at the moment! I mean you have to have some fitness to go dumpster diving!
