I May LOOK Healthy…
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
Normally I don’t pay any attention to what my co-workers are talking about because 1). They’re ignorant and 2). They’re idiots, but today I listened.
Check out the following conversation:
Male Co-Worker: “How many ketchup packets did you use for your fries?”
Younger Male Co-Worker: “I don’t know, like ten?”
Male Co-Worker: “You’re going to have to drink three more bottles of water now.”
Younger Male Co-Worker: “Ah dang…”
Male Co-Worker: “Oh well, you’re young. You’ve got good insides.”
Younger Male Co-Worker: “I may LOOK healthy but I’m really not…”
What’s my point? My point is, if we continue on with our healthy journey, eat the right things we can look healthy and actually BE healthy. My co-workers are thin, work out a lot and are constantly hit on by women. They claim to be healthy, but they eat terribly on a daily basis. We as Sparkers, cannot live this way. We must never give up, never stop seeing our goals and never let anything stand in our way. I go through this on a daily basis when dealing with my emotional eating and frustration with my plateau. Am I willing to give up all that I’ve worked so hard for because I want the chocolate cake, chinese food or quesadilla? It isn’t worth it. I’ve got to see beyond my brain’s craving, beyond my belly that I just can’t stand and beyond all of the pressure to be thin. I’m proud that I eat better than my co-workers on a daily basis and that I know despite our weight/height, I more than likely AM healthier then they are. To me, it’s the little things. You can look like a million bucks, but it doesn’t neceassrily mean that your insides are.
So tell me, do you want to LOOK healthy or BE healthy?
