Short Story: I want to be healthy.
Once upon a time I had a super duper healthy friend. At breakfast I would order the short stack of pancakes with gobs of butter and syrup while she would order egg whites with fruit. I was convinced that her eating habits were not fun. That she missed out on life by not indulging in its yummy/fatty food. But mostly, I was jealous of her amazing self control. I simply couldn’t pass up the instant gratification that came with eating a stack of pancakes.
I started reading foodie blogs to learn more about healthy eating. Of the blogs I follow- almost all of them have already reached the level of health that I am striving for. They make it look so easy and I wished that someone had a blog that documented their initial journey into a healthier lifestyle- surely they haven’t known about Larabars and Almond milk their whole lives, right?
I know that I will achieve my goal of becoming the healthy egg-white-ordering person I wish to be. Whole-ier than thou was created to help track this process and for anyone else out there to follow, give advice, learn from, commiserate and/or celebrate with.
As for the title- I had always felt that those that could eat/live and stay committed to a healthy lifestyle were/are almost on a higher level. I hope to get there too.
Random Info about me:
I consider myself to be a sarcastic Buddhist- although I am not sure if that is possible- as all other Buddhist I know are super happy and haven’t an ounce of sarcasm to spill. At concerts I sing the lyrics I know at the top of my lungs and chug beer at the parts I don’t know so it looks like I know the whole song. I love lists- I write and rewrite them daily. I believe everyone should adopt a shelter dog- they are as good- if not better - than any purebred dog (not that I have anything against purebred dogs- or any animal for that matter). I stay an hour after work almost every day so I look like a hard worker- but most of the time I am just really catching up on my blog reading. Sometimes I can be a slave to CBS’s TV lineup. If I could have a super power it would be to cast wind around me- for no practical purposes- I just LOVE a windy day- it makes me so happy. I am passionate about my boyfriend, the beach, my job, popcorn, my family, sexy shoes and Publix (though not in that order).
