The new years resolution this year is to be comfortable and confident with my own body. Mhm. That'll take a year of hard work for sure. Yay health. Go me.
I just started kickboxing classes, and my calves are already screaming bloody murder.
I'm also having a mental battle trying to figure out if I want to be a vegetarian again.
The thing is though, is that I'm not striving to be skinny. I don't think anyone should strive to be skinny. Instead, for body confidence.
When you have body confidence,
shopping for clothes isn't something to dread.
self-hate of your body is a thing of the past.
changing in the locker rooms ain't a problem.
you can go to the gym without being self-conscious.
you can go to the beach in the summer.
you become that much more attractive. (Seriously, confidence is sexy).
you have the power to say, I don't give a single fuck about what other people think of my body.
I want to be able to say that, and mean it.
Of course, there's the whole angle of just wanting to be more healthy, lose weight, whatever. Think about it, though. That's a lot easier to accomplish if you're already confident to begin with.
It just bothers the absolute shit out of me that so many people seem to be striving for the wrong thing.
That's all I have to say about that.
In other news, I still haven't made any progress with Blender. (See here).
