Warning - I am strange and off-putting

Monday, February 15, 2016

So, a small random strange bit of info about me (don't worry, I have a point): I like sweat. I always have, for some strange reason. I like to see people sweating, I like to sweat, and I have never been that girl who didn't run in P.E. because "ewww, I'll get all sweaty!" No, I didn't run in P. E. Because it HURT. I don't like pain, so yeah I have always been pudgy even when I was thinner. I like sweat and when I start sweating I rejoice! I think to myself "yes! I'm healthy! My body is working like it is supposed to!" The problem is that I don't sweat like most people do. I have to work very hard in high humidity / warm clothes to be able to sweat at all, as well as keeping a high water intake and eating less meat and more whole grains/fresh vegetables. Yes I did extensive research. But the point behind this blog post is not to complain about how weird I am, but to celebrate! I managed to work up a sweat today!! Winning!! Progress can be measured in more ways than just the scale. Forward momentum is awesome isn't it?

    You're so right - progress CAN be measured in more ways than just the scale! In fact, I don't use the scale as a measure of my success at all. I figure EVERY healthy choice I make, from eating a vegetable to 10 minutes of exercise, helps me be healthier and around longer to enjoy my wonderful life. THAT'S success for me!
