I had a run-in today where someone basically told me that I had no right to try to help them with their health because I'm not healthy myself. Ha! That's what you think, Buster! I AM healthy and becoming more so. I may not look like it yet, but someday I will, and guess what! I will be the better person for it! This encounter DID hurt my feelings-yes, I did have to cry about it for a while. But you know, after a while of thinking about it, I decided the other person was right. I DON'T look like someone is healthy and to try to help someone who obviously doesn't even want to help themselves was overstepping my bounds. I need to just work on myself and SHOW people that being healthy is possible. If I can learn to love vegetables, anyone can! I do hope to help someone else someday, but it will be because THEY came up to ME and asked me what I have been doing to achieve such great health. And you know what? Before, I would have become a victim to this person's comments and eaten a whole bunch of unhealthy stuff. But guess what? I DIDN'T EAT A SINGLE THING! I realized the best way to "get back" at this person for their comments was to get healthy. And that means that I will be victorious, not for anyone but myself.
In other news, I went to the farmer's market today with my incredibly supportive aunt and it was so much fun! I got some kale, swiss chard, and cabbage. I'm not sure what I am going to do with all of it, but I hope to be coming up with more recipes and posting them up here soon. :)
Also, I realized my goal for this month has been to go to the gym or workout more often and I haven't gone once! And the month is a third over! I'm getting back on that one. I also need to drink more water...anyone have any strategies for forcing myself to drink more water?
