This post isn’t so much about Moebius but it is about self image and getting healthy.
I am guilty of stopping at Tim Hortons almost every day after work and getting an Iced Capp and a muffin or donut or some other unhealthy snack. I am also guilty of buying way too much candy, pop and junk food. It’s time to change and get healthy. What spurred this is very recent. Like, 2 hours ago recent. I was outside and was taking a few pictures. When I saw the pictures it hit me. I’m not healthy and I am not a healthy size. I’m not saying that I am super obese or anything but just not happy with my body. I know all the magazines now are saying “all women have curves” and “love yourself” and all that but that advice is misleading. Yes, you should love yourself no matter how you look but you have to realize when you’re not at a healthy weight. It is not how you look, it is about being healthy. I am about 5′ 3″ and about 165 pounds probably.. Maybe a bit more. That’s not good. I know that I’ll never be stick thin (although I was when I was younger) but there are definitely pounds to be lost.
So, my new regimen is going to be this:
1) No more stopping for fast food after work. Limit to once a week at most.
2) No more buying anything unhealthy such as candy, cookies, pop, chips, etc
3) Exercise. Even if it’s going for a short walk somewhere. I lift heavy boxes at work all day.. I’m seriously building muscle just doing that.
4) Eat healthy! Buy healthy food and snacks. Spinach, chicken, salads, whole grain food, etc.
So now I am looking for suggestions, blog readers! If you are reading this please comment and suggest one healthy food that you like to snack on or even some healthy meals! I really need some ideas!
It’s time for change to go along with all the other changes that are soon to be taking place in my life. It really is time to get healthy and I am throwing myself into it this time. It’s not about how you look, it’s about health. Being overweight is not healthy.. It’s hard on your organs, mostly your heart and it can cause onset of diseases. I’m taking this chance to change how I eat and live. It’s not a short term diet, it’s a lifestyle change! It’s never too late to start living well!
