Today I caught myself doing something I've never done before - acknowledging that there is a line some people cross in the fitness world. That is, some people pass the 'healthy' thin and get into wiry, too-lean area where, in my opinion, they just lose their curves and feminine side!
Anyone who knows me knows that I've always been a proponent of thin, thin, thin - if I don't fit into my skinny jeans, I'm a grumpy girl. That might be me right now (I'd still like to be a bit slimmer), but at least I'm starting to recognize what's healthy and what's not. That's a milestone in and of itself.
I was also able to push through and not buy a snack from the campus grocery store today (I made some black tea instead).
I'd like to lose an inch off my waist and an inch off my hips this month - my clothes will fit better, and I will be so much more comfortable! No more sugar-laden individual brownies, and no more sodium. I know I keep saying that, but I MEAN it this time. Enough not feeling comfortable. I'm ready to be healthy and balanced.
UPDATE: the cycle of life is a beautiful thing, but I really do not enjoy the downs! Damn you PMS, why must you strike with a vengeance when I REALLY don't want you around?!
