I went to a new exercise class yesterday......today I hurt so much, and in places I never knew could hurt!!!
Here's my observation, though:
Let's demolish, once and for all, the idea that thin=healthy/strong and bigger=unhealthy/not strong.
I was one of the thinner people in this class, and got my ass handed to me, in a big way, by people heavier and older than I. Seriously.
Also, if you tend to think that thin people are healthier, think about a friend of mine from high school. She looked "good" and did sports, so there you go, right? Oops. Not. She was diagnosed with malnutrition because she only ate Diet Coke and cheese pizza.
In other news, I'm working really hard on not hating my physical self. I like me just fine, but I'm not so good at applying that to how I look......ugh......it's frustrating.
