Tiny People are Healthy People and Other Lies I've told myself.
There is a myth about tiny people that says size equates with healthiness. I must break the code of silence and tell you nothing could be further from the truth. As a tiny person I have done more than my fair share of eating-out this semester of school. I only put on around five pounds but it all seems to be concentrated like a floatation device around my mid section. My husband brought home Jillian Michael's 2010 Challenge for Wii yesterday. I decided to give the circuit training a go - you know just for kicks. Even though I started out on the easiest possible setting, I was definitely winded when the workout was done. Also, I need to mention that for the first time in my life I bounced when I ran - jiggled really. To a tiny person never having experienced this sensation I must say it was rather traumatic. But just the kind of wake up call I needed. I may be tiny but I am VERY out of shape. So when the last Oreo disappears from the pantry I will say adios to processed food indefinitely. And that my friend is a fact.
Vintage wearing, organic growing, classic loving, girl on the go. Married to my childhood bestfriend. Proud Mama of two, but so many more in my heart. I am in love with LOVE and vibrant colors, and classic novels, and growing gardens, and nurturing people, and ethnic foods, and poetry, and pretty dresses, and vintage fabrics, and being gentle on the earth and the people who call it home.
