I'll tell you skinny and healthy are not the same thing. They can go together, but they are definitely not the same thing. That isn't what I've been thinking the past few weeks though.
What I have been thinking about is how people perceive it. What made these thoughts come visit is when I was talking with others about working out and eating right so I wouldn't feel so flipping tired all.of.the.time. It was getting old and I felt old.
I am telling you they looked at me with the "um, seriously" look and the words "uhhhh, ok" and "what are you doing it for?" came into play. No, to get some energy IN. Just because I am small, does not mean I am healthy. And the last few months after our wedding, I have been everything but healthy. It was getting a little ridiculous.
And I am still not the healthiest person out there. Not by any means. But I've been trying the best I can and I already feel so much better. For the first time probably ever, I got something "healthy" out on our date night. I am trying. Key word, trying.
So when I get the "you are a freak" looks when I tell someone I'm working out and trying eating better, it's a bit...what's the word...frustrating. Maybe I just don't understand. That is definitely possible, but it just bothers me.
End rant here.
On a positive note....My Erin Condren planner (yes, I caved) arrives soon and so does my new camera strap. Ow owwwww.
