I had a realization last night as I was untagging most of the recent facebook pictures my friends posted of me, guys I've gotten big. I dont mean this in a overly self conscious way but man, for a girl used to size small and 4-6's jumping to 8's is a biiiiiig deal! The last time I was comfortable with my body was about 2 years ago, when I was biking to work everyday and spent the rest of my day on my feet in the studio or slinging coffee. Now a majority of my day is spent in a swivel chair with limited wrist and hand movement. But even my wrists are bigger.
So now is the time of change, revised life plans. Fitness challenge anyone? Diets are mostly about limitations and removing foods from your diet. I want mine to be about additions. More leafy greens more natural foods. More home cooked meals. It is easy in a city like NY to adapt to a life of restaurants and happy hours. There are so many resources for unhealthy life decisions.
Ive never been that health nut girl. But I want to become healthy.
So here is the deal, no more yoyo diet b.s. No more clenses with false hope of instant change. Im making a real life decision to get back to the comfy feeling I crave. Mission Comfy Skin commenses 7/27/09. Wish me lucky times!
