The Death of Diets: Blogger
My name is Kelly and I live in New York City. I was born and raised in the south where you grow up eating greasy, deep-fried, salty, buttery, delicious food. But now, I live in the city of skinny. I’m surrounded by vegans, carb counting, 7 mile jogging, robots. Now, don’t get me wrong they are dedicated, but what kind of life is that?
I’m not fat. I’m not obese. In fact most people would call me skinny. Is my stomach flat? Hell no.
Wanna know my stats? I’m 5’5″ and 135 pounds (on a good day). I’ve got meat on my bones.
I currently work at a local hotel, and they have me working 7 days a week, until midnight. I’ve been watching my health, my sleep, the way I eat, my energy, and my spirits completely deteriorate. I’m finding myself stressed out, hungry for real food (that isn’t a bag of Doritos I grab at work just to make it through the day), and completely exhausted. So, I decided to change that…TODAY.
Today: July 3rd, 2012
I have started this blog where I will be documenting how I put my life back on track. There will be scheduling (as the late/long hours I work require it), minimal exercise, recipes, healthy food, sleep, and pure bliss.
I will also be posting others thing I am beginning to do to put my life financially, mentally, and emotionally back on track.
I’m hoping to shed a few extra pounds, get healthy, and relax.
I would love it if some of you joined me on the journey and shared any ideas, recipes, or results you have!
Thanks for reading! Let’s get healthy, not freakishly thin.
**As a side note I am a bit OCD. I enjoy organization and planning. I’m also a serial ‘list-er’. You don’t have to be as detailed as me but I find a well-organized life is a happier one!
