Let me start by saying this: I am just a woman who likes cupcakes, cookies, and rice, and still wonders why I don’t have abs.
This week’s Just My Thoughts was inspired with this Upworthy article about a letter writing campaign titled Dear Black Girl by The Beautiful Project, a non-profit based in North Carolina. The project asked black women to write letters to inspire and encourage young black girls, which they have started posting on their blog. I read one and was amazed at how another woman’s reflections and experiences could mirror my own.
In this episode, I share my struggles with trying to eat healthy, why I care so much (for starters, I follow way too many healthy recipe and fitness accounts on IG), failing the #Whole30 by lasting an amazing 12 days, some of the benefits, and how I am trying to make sustainable changes. I am hoping to:
- Make a daily commitment and conscious decisions about what I eat at each meal.
- Meal plan. And I don’t mean the 37 tupperware containers filled with pale chicken brand of meal planning, either.
- Do what is best for me and my goals, after doing research and seeking insight from others.
