Well- for the most part... I try really hard to be positive on this here blog. I mean- who wants to read a blog of crap and hate and rants and depression and whining and stuff?? Not me really. But... I can't be silent about this anymore! I have been totally into Pinterest.com lately and it really is an amazing site for inspiration and creativity (let me know if you want an invite to join). Well- there is a ton of crap circulating on this site called "THIN-spiration". These are posts and pictures of being skinny and doing whatever it takes to get that way. I am totally tired of it! I know eating disorders and things of this nature are nothing new... but I have just had enough. Starving yourself or punishing yourself for eating and not being "skinny" is just sick and wrong. Well- here is some of the crap that I see on that site (which ironically make me want to puke. But not in an unhealthy eating disorder kind of way).
It just makes me sad and a bit angry to see all of this circulating around. Now- do NOT misunderstand me. I do NOT believe that OVER eating and living an unhealthy and unbalanced lifestyle are acceptable. I do, however, believe that there is moderation in all things. I do believe in well balanced diet and exercise and keeping yourself healthy and in shape. I have come up with some of my own "Healthy Living" inspiration to counteract the effects of these borderline (if not COMPLETE) eating disorder like thoughts...
I feel really strongly about this. All people (and especially women and girls I feel) should learn healthy and positive habits. Eat healthy and act healthy. Get enough sleep and exercise and indulge a bit too! It is JUST FINE to eat a damn cookie and to have a piece of cake. Just don't eat the entire dozen or the entire pan at one time. I mean, come on people.
Sorry about the rant but I just can't keep quiet any longer. Hate me if you want for talking about this... but you know what... my blog- my rules :) So to all of you reading this today- eat a cookie. And remember to walk around the house while you are talking on the phone (it will burn some calories).
