I look at the fitspo tag to motivate myself and I’m always talking to myself in Tumblr post format SO I figured this would be a good way to put it all together.
Like a cliche, I started trying to get fit around New Year’s. Been a pretty good January.. I’ve lost 10 lbs and I’ve changed my eating and working out habits.
I’m not gonna gush about salads because honestly, they’re just ok to me. I would much rather munch on unhealthy stuff but I accept that should exist in moderation and involves lots of working out.
I don’t have a scale because I’m doing a study abroad and I’m a poor college kid who can’t afford to buy anything she can’t bring back with her in her one allotted suitcase.
I’m in France. As in the land of wine and bread and pastries and cheese and butter on EVERYTHING by the shitload so abstinence takes on a WHOLE ‘nother level.
I’m not always going to be the paragon of health. Sometimes I eat too few calories and work out too hard. Sometimes the boulangerie just smells too delicious to resist after a long day and I’ll get a croissant and then skip dinner out of guilt.
But I’m trying. Really hard. To be healthier, to not skip meals, to choose workouts and vegetables. And for that, I give myself some credit.
