Blood Pressure: Normal

hahah ahah aa hahh hahahhahhahaha ah ahahhaha ahhaahhaaa
I know how to get fit. I feel better when I’m fit. Getting thin, though… I’m miserable when I’m thin. Or just dying.
I don’t eat bread, donuts, pasta, sweets, potato chips, potatoes, pizza, or fries. I’ve recently given up snacking on my expensive cheeses and pecans. This leaves me frozen raspberries, Greek yogurt, peanuts, and the occasional dark chocolate bar. I already work out an hour a day, five days a week. Pushing it more than that is going to get ridiculous.
I can tell you exactly what I’d need to excise from my diet in order to improve my “body composition.”
Avocados, the walnuts on my salad, the crumbled blue cheese on my salad, switch out my 70 calorie salad dressing to 30 calorie dressing, and take the sour cream off everything.
You know what?
Not worth it.
We’ll see what happens now that I’m not allowed to eat out and snack anymore because of my budget restrictions. I’m not going to ditch anymore foods from my diet, or I’ll just end up undernourished, bitchy, and anemic.
And next time, I’ll do 50 push-ups instead of 40. Just for shits and giggles.
I can be 180 lbs. I’m just not sure what it’s worth to me, if I can already do 40 push-ups in a minute.
Cheese and avocados make me happy.
It’s not like I have a lot left.
