Name's Kat! I am enlisted in the United States Airforce, and I am going to be leaving to training on March 19th. Follow to join me on my journey to get ready for Basic Military Training!

I hear girls (and creepy uncles, and overbearing mothers) saying things like “I’m just going to try to eat a little healthier” when they’re really just trying to lose 5 lbs; or “Oh Honey! You look so healthy!” when they really just noticed you’ve lost weight. Or how about “I’ll have the egg white omelette…. I’m trying to be healthy.”
Can we GET REAL for a sec?
You’re not trying to “get healthy” you’re trying to get skinny, and you may or may not be going about it in a healthy way.
Don’t kid yourself. Having half a cup of cottage cheese and black coffee for breakfast is NOT what your body wants. And don’t get me started on women who want to “get healthy” by drinking Diet Coke. Or my personal favorite: when they eat salads all day, and then go binge-drink and chain smoke the following night. “I’m trying to get healthy.”
Shut the fuck up. No You’re Not.
Want to know what healthy actually looks like?
It looks like…
Choosing Non-Homogenized, Organic Peanut Butter over Skippy Reduced Fat
Choosing W.A.T.E.R. over Diet Coke
Resting when you’re tired
Making a home-cooked meal, instead of microwaving a Lean Cuisine
Going out with your girlfriends and actually having fun!
It means treating your friends, spouses and family members with respect
It means moving in a way that makes your body feel good, rather than punishing yourself with brutal workouts that you hate.
It means sitting down and eating a real meal when you’re hungry
It means enjoying your food to the fullest, and not letting food rule your life
And if those last two are confusing for you, I highly recommend downloading my free guide to freedom from emotional eating, How Not To Eat Chocolate Cake, ASAP.
All I want you to do today is look at how you treat yourself. What does the word “healthy” mean to you? Where can you bring true nourishment to your actions today? How can you take care of yourself more fully? How can you feel better, regardless of how you look?

I know I haven’t been posting on here for a while, but I just wanted to give you guys a little update. I found out when I’m going to be leaving for BMT which is going to be March 19th. I have 88 days left as a civilian and I couldn’t be anymore anxious/excited. Another thing I have accomplished was running my first 5k, it was The Santa Run, and I had gotten a faster time than I had expected. I know I haven’t been posting up what I eat, my workouts, or even reblogging much. But if you are interested in the workouts I will be doing to be prepping myself for Basic Military Training, feel free to follow me on fitocracy! My username is: Kathan (: I will definitely be logging on more and blogging more frequently to keep myself in check with my health, and sanity!@11 months ago
