My aim has never been to lose weight; no matter how much I bang on about how much I dislike the appearance of my body, it has nothing to do with weight nor has it ever. It has to do with the negative perception that I hold my body in. And boy is it negative.
I have good days, where I feel pretty and don't even put an ounce of makeup on; and then I have the bad days, where I feel like everything makes me look a bazillion times fatter then I am. Not to mention seeing advertisements, women on the street or even images on the interwebs do not help me in creating a little positive mindset on the bad days.
So I need to get healthy. I need to start exercising. And I need to start thinking about my body in a positive light.
This morning I noticed that Kate from Kate Says Stuff wrote a post about getting buff for summer. I am all for that, I am one to jump on bandwagons. I was actually considering doing the 12WBT but after discussions with many people I don't think it is for me, as in I don't think spending $200 will make me stick to it. But that's just me.
I want to cook five nights a week. At the very least.
I want to exercise five times a week for at least thirty minutes. Working up to hour workout.
I want to create positive body image thoughts, daily.
I want to love my body as it is, all the time.
Cheer me on?
