Time to get in shape.

I was planning a post for today, but while writing it I was getting major writer's block. I decided to hold off on that post and bring up something that really annoyed me last week.

I posted a picture on Instagram of my McDonalds breakfast and made the comment that I'm going back to the gym ASAP. I received an e-mail from some girl I don't know. She explained to me that the gym isn't going to make a difference unless I change my eating habits and that I'm never going to see weight loss results unless I make a lifestyle change. She also informed me that simply talking about going back to the gym isn't going to do anything. She ended the e-mail by telling me she's willing to give me advice and tips if I was actually serious. Maybe I read it wrong, but it came off so rude.

First of all, I don't think I'm fat at all. Sometimes when I post a picture of unhealthy food or a lot of food I stupidly joke and say I'm being a fatty or something along those lines. Or if I'm wearing a flowy shirt sometimes I'm guilty of making a comment about how it makes me look pregnant. Let's be honest, some of those shirts can look that way. I'm going to remind myself not to make those comments anymore anymore because I guess people think I'm being serious or that I think I'm fat. I'm 120 pounds, if I think I'm fat or need to lose weight then I need some serious help. 


I work out at home a few days a week, but I really need to get back to the gym so I can get a better workout. I'm not looking to lose weight, I'm looking to get in shape. My eating habits really aren't bad at all. Yes, I may drink craft beer or every once in a while eat unhealthy. It probably has something to do with the fact that I'm human and it's okay to consume something unhealthy because most of the time I eat very healthy.


I'm not bothered by the e-mail anymore. Not worth worrying about. However, I am motivated to get back in shape. I'd much rather people make comments about how fit I am than how skinny I am. Plus, working out makes me feel so much better about myself. So it's time to finally get serious about this!

  1. OMG that was a little rude! I am glad you have a good body image and dont feel bad about the email. You look great! Though I love the motivated feeling of the gym too, but it is nice to do it with no pressure! Loving your blog :)

  2. I think that email came across as rude too. You didn't ask for her unsolicited advice. I've almost stopped taking pictures of my food because I know someone will say something about it. I plan in competing and they will say I should not eat this and that.

    Eff those people though.

    Being fit>skinny

  3. Sheesh. People can be so presumptuous. Do you! That's all the matters in the end anyway. :)
