Let’s talk about getting healthy. I’ve been making tweaks & planning like a crazy person to create a healthier lifestyle for myself. Sure, hubby is naturally benefiting because I make dinner (therefore I have the power, muahaha!), but the base line is for me. I could definitely go on & tell you about how diabetes runs in my family or how slow I run a mile but you’ve heard all of that before, right? And I could say “Health starts from the inside out like beauty” which is totally true but you’ve heard that before too, correct? Well how about, “I want to look smoking next summer when the Air Force hopefully has enough money to open a pool!”
Sound kind of lame? Okay well hold up & let me explain, sheesh! The base we’re currently stationed at said they aren’t even opening the pool this summer. True story. I’m going a summer without swimming in a pool, which is unheard of. Normally, I’d be dreading picking out a new swimsuit right about now but why bother? We might go fishing but who needs to look cute to do that? Fish just don’t care about how I feel about myself in a bathing suit. Instead I’m channeling all of this non-pool energy into looking hot for next summer. Clearly this includes eating right, exercising, & getting my foxy on. I find I feel better about myself when I’ve done my hair & makeup for the day. Now don’t fret, I didn’t say I HAVE to do it & I can totally go without but it makes me feel better. Why else would I spend hours in front of a mirror coloring myself in with various art supplies?
Let’s talk food! I’ve been using Slim-Fast for years as a supplemental meal or snack. Oh man, did I forget to eat breakfast again? Boom, it is in my hand ready to go. Starving for chocolate & could devour a whole cake? Yeah a Slim-Fast bar is probably a better option. Oddly enough, most convenience foods (think vending machines) just aren’t as good for you! What is good for me is the fact that one of their bars (Peanut Butter Crunch Snack Bar) tastes exactly like Bart Simpson’s favorite candy bar. Huzzah!
So why else would I want to lose weight? Again…health overall blah blah. But also…to balance better in heels, wear less clothing during this heat without feeling like a blob, & because I really want to pay someone to take in my favorite clothes. How great is that going to feel? Pretty amazing. Plus, I’m going streaking! Okay maybe not REALLY but if I NEED to I want to look as good as possible!
