For the first time in the past five days, I am full.
Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration. Ever since Tuesday, though, I've been fasting! My mom is a Baha'i, and since I turned fifteen in January I am officially of age to do the fast for the first time--basically you spend 19 days (a month) only eating before sunrise and after sunset. I just completely gorged myself on my after sunset meal of weird-potato-thing-I-felt-like-making and french toast with whipped cream. The latter was pretty good, and deliciously fattening. Yum.
And that, my friends, is the intrepid transition to my next subject: weight. I do understand that body image and maintaining a healthy weight can be a major struggle for a lot of people. I don't mean to belittle the struggles that they can go through, or the pain they may have to feel. At the same time, however, I'm sick and tired of all of the girls being careful to avert their eyes when we need someone to be at the top of the pyramid in gymnastics, because, "You can't lift me, I'm too heavy!" Speaking as someone who has dealt with all those crappy feelings myself, the sooner you can move on and feel good about yourself, the better.
I think I'm going to cut things off rather quickly now, with a picture of course. I may or may not be blogging over the next few days because I have an incredibly busy, glamorous life and need to get over myself. Actually, I'm going to be taking the midnight bus on Sunday night to Prince George, a city about seven hours from here. It's nice to get out of town for a while (it's Spring Break, in case anyone didn't know! That means endless partying, you know the drill) and PG has the most amazing second hand stores :)
I heard they're putting the Cookie Monster on a vegetable diet--yeah, I'd be pissed, too. Oh! And Cindy, in response to your question, Chapters is a big chain bookstore--kind of like Barns and Noble, I suppose. And if I got the name wrong, sorry!
Have a great day,
