Skinny Isn't an Excuse

12:00 AM

Time and time again, I've made the same excuse for my poor dietary choices and my lack of exercise: I'm skinny. I'm coming to realize that being skinny isn't a good excuse to disrespect my own body. I need to learn to appreciate my body.

Does this mean I'm going to begin eating clean and exercising three times a day? Well, baby steps y'all... I'll start by eating less junk food and fast food, and going to the gym at least three times a week. Eventually, I will get to where I want to be. I have always been interested in healthy alternatives to food, and I've always been inspired by fitness models. I don't think I'll ever go vegan or have a six pack, but I do think it's possible to be happier and healthier. This isn't an aesthetic thing, it's a health thing.

My first step was downloading myfitnesspal and Waterlogged. Not a huge step, but I'm hoping that tracking my water and caloric intake will inspire me to eat healthier and exercise more often. My second step will be actually creating a workout plan and meal plan. The third step is making myself actually eat healthy and exercise. The fourth step is the hardest: that's sticking to it. This is usually where I get stuck. I go a few times, bag some healthy food, then call it quits to watch Netflix with a bag of Sour Patch Kids.

I would appreciate encouragement and suggestions if y'all have any!
