it’s crazy how much better “junk” (for lack of better term) food tastes when you’ve been eating a much cleaner diet for awhile. i was craving pizza like no other, so i went out last night for a slice with my bud and i almost wanted to cry at how delicious it was. literally like mouth agape as i stared down at the pools of orange pizza grease betwixt melted mozzarella all nestled within their bed of marinara and yeasty, gluteny goodness. all i could say in that moment was “i want to get naked with this pizza.”
then my boyfriend got a milkshake at a local drive-thru, of which i had a generous sip, and when he turned to look at me i think he was a little offput by the look of pure awe and euphoria that overcame me. fucking ice cream. fucking pizza. so good. i couldn’t do this if i didn’t allow myself such indulgences every so often.
also i got new nikes and i’m always so excited to go tromp around the gym in some fresh new sneaks. i swear, there is almost no better motivator to get me to the gym than buying new workout gear/clothes. i’ma feel like such a fresh motherfucker today.
oh, last thing: i am like, really proud of my butt right now. like proud enough that i had to restrain myself from posting a booty-pic i snapped last night. the first time i ever lost weight, i did it with pure ellipticalling and treadmilling and i had to kiss my butt goodbye pretty quickly. however, this go-around, i’ve pretty much omitted most straight up cardio and stuck to lifting. i am losing actual weight more slowly, but i am already so much happier with my body and what it is capable of. for me, personally, it is far more worth it. i’d rather lose the weight slower and chip away at the body i want on the journey.
anyway those are my prevalent health-related thoughts thanks for tunin in
