embrace the sun

Alyssa, 22, Los Angeles

Coffee, cheese, beer, getting bendy, sunflowers, sweat, marching band, and all other good things in life.

Documenting my transition from teenager to adult.

"You are not useless. You are not hopeless. And no matter how scared you are, you will never be alone. And deep down, somewhere, in the part of you that decided the good days and your happiness and your health were all worth fighting for, you know that, too. Hold onto that knowledge. It will see you through the worst."

So. This blog is supposed to be about getting healthy. I finally feel healthy again. This time last year, I weighed at least ten pounds less than I do now. I wasn’t eating, wasn’t exercising. I spent most of my time in bed or at work, depressed out of my mind. I hated my body, hated myself, no matter how skinny I got. 
The past few months have been hard. I got physically healthy again but my brain was still off. I wanted to regress into starvation & guilt & depression so badly. I started avoiding certain foods and started becoming obsessive again. 
Then, one day, I decided to just be happy. To not let things affect me anymore, to see the good. I eat what I want now. I run 3-6 times a week. I can run 7 minute miles and I feel invincible. I am 150 pounds of muscle & meat (& booty, chicka yeah) & I love every piece of it. I’m so happy to finally be in a good place again, to be feeling free & alive & confident & healthy again. It’s been a long road to get here & it’s not over but at least I’m getting somewhere good.

Please be healthy, please be confident with who you are & what you are. Be free.

not wanting to date someone because you aren’t physically attracted to them doesn’t make you an asshole

wanting to sit at home watching TV instead of hanging out with people doesn’t make you an asshole

cutting off a friendship that was not satisfying to you doesn’t make you an asshole

"Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen."
