Honestly, I think at least part of the reason I feel hesitant to continue pursuing Nutrition as my major (aside from all the awful, awful math I have to take) it because I feel like such a raging hypocrite. I have the worst diet, witches. Seriously, awful. And forget exercise (who even has time for that???). Since my catabolism* ran away from home when I turned twenty-two, I’ve gained a lot of weight and turned into a lethargic blob.
The weight I don’t mind, really. If I’m fat, I’m fat, and that’s just how it is. That just means there’s more of me to be awesome. But, I wouldn’t mind being awesome and healthy. It’s not the fat that bothers me; it’s the lack of energy and pain that I have a problem with.
And with thirty looming on the horizon (holy sh–!) I really need to get my health in order while I’m still young enough to do so.
So, I’m trying to make healthier dietary and fitness choices. Which is kind of a bummer, because healthy food doesn’t taste nearly as good as cupcakes and cookies. Nor do any of the healthy recipes I have look particularly blog-worthy. Oh, baked chicken and steamed vegetables! Many wow! Such amaze!
Except, you know, not really. It’s all pretty boring, standard stuff.
Which is where you come in (hopefully). Drop your favorite healthy (preferably low-sodium) dishes in the comments. Hook a witch up!
Meanwhile, I’ll be off in the abyss of my bedroom, digging my stationary bike out from under the piles of clothes.
I love you all.

*Catabolism is the part of metabolism which breaks molecules down into smaller molecules and energy and is what most people talk about when they talk about “stimulating your metabolism.” Science has ruined the casual use of the term “metabolism” for me.
**The other part of metabolism is anabolism, which uses energy to bond smaller molecules to form bigger molecules. This is the process which builds muscle (among many other things). SCIENCE! WHEE!
